no mood

This was supposed to be today's workout:

5 sets:

4 Sumo Deadlift High Pull/1 Power Clean/5 Push-Press

But: I think I pulled my right adductor in Sunday's FGB, I was not feeling well most of the day, I failed on my eating schedule, and after several days of feeling like I was doing ok with the passing of our cat Felix, I was hit with a wave of grief that just persisted all day. I was in a CRAPPY mood when I got to class (about 15 minutes late).

I needed a workout that was going to get the endorphins flowing, not aggravate my pulled muscle and frustrate the hell out of me, so I plugged in my little music player and went and rowed 2k instead. My time was 9:23 or so. Not my best time ever, but not horrible. I was able to keep the pace to about 2:19 for nearly the whole time (obviously not the whole time).

After that I tried to work on my doubleunders a little with my new jumprope, but it was aggravating my leg, so I stopped. I can get double unders with my new rope, but it's not a magic-easy-double-under rope. they're still hard - but i didn't really expect much out of a $4 rope. the best thing i can say for it really is that it fits nicely in my little bag of stuff i bring with me to class.

I felt a bit better after the workout, but I'm going to try to get a full 8 hours of sleep tonight.
