Oh, this day was hard for me to do pull-ups!
Maybe it was the fact I lacked some sleep from last night or that I exercised a couple of hours later after breakfast, but I did feel heavier. Or maybe my muscles needed more time to recover. I guess all of the above contributed a little bit.
Even my first pull-up was a little shaky. While I was lowering myself down I thought how am I going to finish my routine this morning with 4 more pull-ups with 2 minute rests in between.
So I picked up some fallen apples from the garden and jumped again on the rings. In my 2nd pull-up I was already out of form helping the upward movement with my legs. So were the next 3 attempts as well.
I’m not going to beat myself up for this. I’m quite happy that I didn’t miss the morning routine and continued my workout even for a little bit. Sure, maybe I could have simply done four 20 second dead hangs after the 1st pull-up. I’m confident that if I sleep better tonight or exercise before breakfast pull-ups will come easier.
The most important thing when the going gets tough for me is simply continue moving. I just have to do something small. And be quite content about what I’m doing.
Because the alternative would be to watch one more episode on Netflix. And this won’t get me any closer to my goals.
