This was the first workout in many years that I could not finish. I got to 75 push-ups after 10 minutes, and I had nothing left. What was worse, this whole class was just me and coach Stacey; there was no hiding my failure. I cooled off, cleaned up most of my mess, then finished after class was over. This took two more sets of cleans to get through 25 more push-ups. I am glad to have gotten all the work in, but feel defeated nonetheless because I did not have the capacity to (mentally nor physically) to push through and finish this workout in one long grind. I'm sure this one will come up again, and I hope to kill it more better then.
