Everyone has bad days. This applies to life as well as your workouts. And when this happens, it's easy to just give up, or worse yet, get down on yourself for not having your best performance. There can be several reasons for a day like this, including missing out on sleep, a change in your diet, lingering fatigue or soreness from previous workouts, etc. Remember this: putting your nose to the grindstone in that kind of situation and finishing, no matter how ugly, does wonders for your discipline. Like making your body one day better, your mind benefits from the fact that it was able to push on, even when your body was pleading to stop. Mark it down as a "win".
Workout of the Day
With a continuously running clock, complete 1 Power Snatch (75, 55) and 1 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75, 55) the first minute, 2 of each the second minute, etc., until you can no longer complete the required number of reps in the corresponding minute.
