After some mobility work, we spent 15 minutes doing work on the rings, practicing towards doing muscle-ups. I can't even hold my own body weight on the rings and I just felt defeated. Then, in the main workout, I used the lightest weight of anyone in the gym (deliberately after a multi-week break) and while I finished first, fewer than five minutes of work left me on the verge of throwing up.
Today, I'm sore from 4 minutes and 48 seconds of work with light weights. Pathetic. The comment that I left in my log at the gym questioned whether I even belong there. Just not my day, I guess. But, it remains frustrating to be the least flexible and probably least fit person there. It's like I'm never going to catch up.
The bad thing is that the frustration is taking the fun out of the workouts for me. It's even leading to me trying to find excuses to not go to the gym after work. I have to stop thinking about these things and just go to the workouts and do my work.
Today, I'm working from home because of a big snowstorm. My kids have a snow day as well. Once again, my piece of crap snow blower isn't working. It's about 9 or 10 years old, and I think it's time to give up. I bought a new John Deere tractor this past summer and I'm thinking I'll buy the snowblower attachment for the tractor. I don't want to spend the money, but right now, I have no idea how the driveway will get cleared. It's simply too big to even consider shoveling.
I wish I was skiing, even though I'm not feeling very competent at that sport recently.
Hopefully this post won't lead to others feeling as depressed and frustrated as I feel right now.
