MIND GAMES...

Today I wake up really tired and feeling really bad, with sore throat and kind of at the edge of some illness, but after a little Reiki and EFT (www.emofree.com) i managed to start working and day dreaming about how to approach today's first work out 3-3-3-3-3 deadlift

At 2:30pm I decided to face the reality and hit my garage box, for another cold session (it's 30-35ºF at my place).

At this moment I was trying to avoid the work out and thinking that I can use any excuse to do so, but something inside propel me directly to the fact that I like this and no matter what if I want to be an Ironman I have to deal face to face with any circumstance, even pain, excuses or mind games...

I did a partial CROSSFIT warm-up prescribed in the website and them loaded the bar.

3 rounds of 10-15 reps of
Samson Stretch (do the Samson Stretch once each round for 15-30 seconds)
Overhead Squat with broomstick
Sit-up
Back-extension
Pull-up
Dip

1) Bar=45 + 90 (45 each side plates) = 135lb
2) Bar=45 + 160 (45+35 each side plates) = 205lb
3) Bar=45 + 210 (45+35+25 each side plates) = 255lb
4) Bar=45 + 230 (45+35+25+10 each side plates) = 275lb
5) Bar=45 + 250 (45+35+25+20 each side plates) = 295lb

Fail @ 315 (trying to add 2-10lb plates on each side)

And now a question for you guys?

What motivates you to be an Ironman, what's exactly help you in those dark moments of doubt or when your mind start with a "why are you doing this game...."

More later today after tabata bike...
