Another vacation wod CF Albufeira

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We went down south by car. And I did one more wod on the coast at CrossFit Albufeira. The town itself is not very nice, lots of tourists and cheesy souvenir shops, too many not so good looking restaurants and so many hotels and ugly buildings right next to the beach. Our little hotel was 5km away in a smaller place, that was a bit nicer and not so full with all this tourist shops and restaurants.

The box itself was pretty cool, behind the main road and a petrol station, not too big and too fancy, seemed like a real box. On our day there was more fun team workout than a serious wod, which was fine, it was Easter Saturday. We worked in teams of 5 and did different exercises as a team, 5 minutes per station, one minute rest in between. The class took a while, even we did not workout that hard, but they just took their time… ;D

Afterwards I tried their Rogue pegboard which was fun but also very tricky, I managed to go all the way up and down…, yeah.

I could not lift equally 16kg right and left, my left arm is so much weaker in comparing to the right. It also hurt and felt not good. I stopped the wod because it felt horrible and I could not use my left arm for the kb push press. I went home and was really mad and kinda depressed, putting so much work in my training and the result is so little and oftentimes failing makes me wondering about my progress
