Recall, today I just did my first 100 pull-ups without band assistance. My hands are torn up and I am currently wearing bandages on both hands - I look like a boxer ;) I can't even get any water on my hands - I can't even wash my hair because the shampoo stings; and can only use soap on the tip of my fingers to wash my body. It's sad. Very sad and painful.
So when I saw tomorrow's workout, I was a tad bit distressed:
30 Handstand push-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 poods
But after looking at it for awhile, I accepted the fact that I will be going to CF tomorrow morning and will have to do the WOD. So I looked at each task and asked myself "Can I do this?". I can do the hanstand pushups using bands - so no issue there. I can swing a 35lb KB swings - well I can do 5 sets of 10. I have no problems at all with sit-ups - I can do hundreds without issue. And burpees are really fun though I haven't done 70 in a row - but they are do-able and I enjoy them so I don't see a big problem here. The only task I have an issue with is the pull-ups. My hands are torn up which makes my hands unbearable when grasping the bar. If my hands were not torn up, I would attempt them -- but I don't know. If I tear them up more then I healing time will be longer. So, I wonder if there is an alternate to pull-ups? Or should I just buck up, apply tape and just go for it. It's only 40...right?!
