Geting my butt kicked on a daily basis

I'm glad I took off from running yesterday because the WOD this morning included a run and my legs still don't feel 100% yet:
Run 400M
20 Lateral hops (hop over and back to count as "1 hop")
20 slamballs (20 lb ball)
20 push press (63 lb bar)
4 rounds for time
I finished in 27:27!
It was tough today and mostly because I went heavier on the push press, usually I do 55 lbs but I want to get stronger and you can't get stronger if you keep using the same weight every time! So I upped it to 63 lbs (33 lb bar + 15 lb plates)  and it kicked my ass.  The first round went okay, the second round went okay, the third and fourth rounds were struggles.  I had to break the push press into segments of 5 reps at a time to complete them.  I'm glad I did the higher weight though, I need to push myself to get stronger in upper body movements.  I don't see myself doing any pullups if I can't increase my overhead movement weights.  Feels good to be alive. I found a great quote from Mia Hamm that encapsulates what I strive for: “I am building a fire, and every day I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.”
