AMRAP Makes Me Want To Roll Over and Die

AMRAP

On Monday I got back into my weekday routine at the gym.  I was happy to see my friends and get a good workout in.  I always feel so much better after a good workout.  I feel like I’ve accomplished more than I could the day before.

Until I met AMRAP.  Oh dear God who created this obscene workout?  AMRAP stands for “As Many Reps As Possible” or what I call “AMRAPUYD” – As Many Reps As Possible Until You Die.  I felt like I was in my first class ever because I wanted to cry, run out while my legs still worked and puke.  This might have been my 2nd hardest day (behind my first class).

WOD

This was our WOD over 21 minutes:

  • 20 Kettle Bell High Ups
  • 20 meters bear crawl
  • 20 Push Ups (with lifting your hands off when you get to the floor)
  • 10 Wall Balls
  • 20 meters bear crawl
  • 20 side-to-side mountain climbers
  • 20 v sit ups

I THINK I got through 2 rounds?  I don’t know.  I just remember feeling like a big loser because I was way behind everyone else, wanting to crawl out the front door and never go back.  How do I fast forward to losing like 300 pounds without this torture?  I don’t pray but today I am!

Dear Baby Jesus:

Please let me get through today’s workout without wanting to quit.  Give me the strength to continue to push through the pain and doubt I feel all the time.  I just want to succeed to feel proud of myself and have others be proud of me too.

Love,

Fat Liz
