I had decided on Saturday that I needed to be in the gym in the environment I am used to do well. I texted Jarrod and asked him I could come in after his 1x1 training session and got the green light. When i arrived it was empty except for Jarrod. I could set up where i was comfortable. Jarod even asked if I wanted to put my tunes on. (Thanks Jarod)
After a long warm up at home I just went through a few easy rounds of wall balls and tried to tune my double unders. I have had the change to hear Tony Robbins speak a few time at company events so I clearly knew that I had put myself in the right state this time. I was calm, I had a plan, I knew what to do if things starting to go wrong. What was the difference physically between Friday and today - nothing. It was all in my head. Seems simple but somethings its the hardest thing.
I had a plan and just needed to execute. On 3, 2. 1knew right away i was in the right mode. I wasnt fighting things at all. I was able to get 7:49 on the wall balls. So I started the Double Unders at around 8 minutes. I was fighting it but managed to get a few big sets in to get over half way. Then disaster struck the set screw must have loosened and the rope broke. I quickly ran over to the wall to grab one from the gym. First one I grabbed and tried to swing was way too long. I think it must have been Jarods! I still remained calm. Found another one and started back in. Managed to finish them at the 11:15 mark. This is all i had wanted! A chance to get a crack at a muscle up. By the time i got on the rings I had about 40 seconds. I banged out 5 straight and didnt even get close on the 6th. 5 second left. Drop down. Try one more - but it was too late. I was really pleased with the effort but most importantly I didnt let myself get rattled.
