Oh Tumblr. Why does your phone app suck so much?
Black House, Blue Sky
I’m falling further down the startup rabbit hole and I really like what I see.
It’s part scary, part exciting, part super risky…I feel like I’m gambling with my fate a little. I inherently trust what I’ve been promised and the product…I really believe in this product. But this is still a world I’m really new to - there’s that little bit of risk mixed with doubt again.
But somehow…this feels right.
The “Seven” WOD
7 Rounds for Time:
7 Handstand push-ups (on box)
7 Thrusters (55lbs)
7 Knees to Elbows
7 Deadlifts (95lbs)
7 KB Swings (16kg)
7 Pull-ups (one green band)
My time: 6 rounds in 37:02
Yeah, I didn’t do 7. Yesterday’s roughness was still weighing on me emotionally and into round 2 I was already down on myself and giving up. This was hard. I actually think I could have done 7, but the 6 o’clock class was coming in and my wrists were just killing me from the thrusters. The gym was insanely cramped too and so hot. I really don’t handle humidity well. But! I still did 6 and I’m pretty sure I didn’t come close to that time when we did this 6 months ago. Benchmarks. Oy.
When you’ve suffered two rejections in a 9 hour span the logical thing to do is get into bed at 7:15pm.
If anyone needs me, I’ll be here, devising new ways to feel even worse about myself.
