the 25 minute workout that took me over an hour

Today was a rough workout day. Before the programmed WOD, I did my Friday handstand pushup workout  of 50 EROM HSPU, every 30 seconds, resting 2 minutes every time I failed. Theoretically, if I didn't fail once, it would take me 25 real life it took me 1 hour, 10 minutes, and 9 seconds. I started out pretty strong, knocking out 7 HSPU before I failed....then 8...and then I went downhill fast only knocking out 2, then failing...then 1....then 2...and so on and so on. This was a mental workout just as much as it was physical. After 25 I wanted to quit. At 30 I wanted to quit. At 40 I wanted to quit. And at 45, I decided I was too close to think about quitting and was ok. It is not easy to fail. It's a huge blow to your psyche....and falling on your head multiple times really sucks. I tweaked my neck a little bit on number 48, but I was way to close to the end to stop. I just gotta be careful for the next few days. Overall, I'm just glad I was able to complete 50...and didn't quit. After that, I did the workout of the day; heavy power cleans. I think I probably could have gone heavier, but after the HSPU, I really didn't feel like over doing it.
