Even after deadlifting yesterday and setting a new PR, I set ANOTHER new PR today!!

WOD:

For time -
25 thrusters (95)
25 T2B
25 box jumps (24")
25 T2B
25 thrusters (95)

OK, this was way harder than I expected it to be. I got thru 19 thrusters unbroken on the first round. If this was Fran, I'd have done the extra 2 before dropping the bar, but another 6 was a little bit of a tall order. The rest of the workout wasn't so bad, til I got back to the thrusters...UGH...had to do 3 or 4 at a time, and I even whacked myself in the nose on the first rep of the last 25. OUCH.

SO!  Yesterday I decided to work on my deadlifts instead of doing the daily WOD.  And guess what today's WOD is...yep...DEADLIFTS.  Interesting how things work.  I will give it my best shot again today, but if I don't hit my 315 from yesterday I'm using yesterday's score.  SO THERE. Scratch that shit, I PR'ed AGAIN!!  325 baby!!

No WOD today, just decided to go work on deadlifts. Its about time I tried to PR my 1RM DL. Last year I struggled at 275. I wanted at least 285 for one rep. I got it...and then I got 305 and 315. I failed at 335. Should have gone up to 320 or 325 before I tried 335. Oh well, next time.

Run 200m

I absolutely killed the runs on this. The hang snatches weren't bad today. I had been worried about my shoulder but I guess I was warmed up enough that the weight was ok.

After round 1 I was in third place behind two other guys, about 10 sec behind. After round 2, I was sneaking up on them. Round 3, I passed one guy on the run. Round 4, passed the other. All on the 200m runs, and this was after I missed the box on one of my jumps and put a nasty contusion under my knee. YAY PAIN!!

I went from 135 to 165 with not a lot of struggle, but just couldn't get under the 175# bar when I tried.

20 minute ladder, RX 175#.
1 C/J (145)
1 round of Cindy
2 C/J
1 round of Cindy
3 C/J...

I got 8 full rounds in at 145 (175 was NOT happening) and started on round 9. I only got thru 7 C/J before time ran out. I'm pretty happy with this result though, that's 43 clean and jerk at 145#, which is a pretty good advancement in my strength.

As soon as I can get my shoulders to cooperate, and my form a little better, I should be getting a lot stronger.

125-155-175-185 (just about failed on the last rep here so I didn't go any further)
Just did one 2 rep set at 135 to cool down.

Pretty happy with this since two weeks ago my 1RM front squat was 205. I'll bet I can go heavier than 205 next time we do 1RM front squat!!

Sport
  • Crossfit
  • 09m 48s

WOD:
For time -
20 burpees
15 front squat 135#
15 T2B
Run 800m
15 T2B
15 front squat 135#
20 burpees

I DESTROYED this workout. Since learning the secret of T2B (pull your butt back) I have been smashing all my PR's on workouts containing this move. The 135# front squats were actually easier than I thought they'd be, and the burpees were simple after everything else I was doing. The run was honestly the hardest part.

At the time I left, I had the fastest time all day. We'll see if it holds up!!

Last week was my biggest workout week in a LONG time.  As a matter of fact, yesterday's epic 3 hour journey was the longest workout I've done probably since St. Anthony's in 2012. 

I'm rested up and ready to go for another good week of workouts!!

31 Heroes WOD.
This was one INSANE workout. I was tired after this week's workouts for sure, but I even took a day off this week and I was still struggling during the WOD to lift even a 105# bar. SHEESH.

31 min partner AMRAP
#1 does 400m sandbag run (45#)
#2 does 8 thrusters (155#), 6 rope climbs, and 11 box jumps (30") until #1 gets back from the run, and then switch off.

I partnered with an ex-Marine, who I work out with fairly regularly. We were both really wrecked from this week's workouts, so we decided on a 105# thruster instead of the 155# cuz it would have been too much for us after the hell we put our shoulders thru in the past few days.

Other than that, we RX'd everything...even for two short (I'm 5'4" he's 5'5") guys we still rocked the box jumps at 30". I can climb a rope like nobody's business so I rocked those out while he was out running. I took my time on the runs, cuz he usually would get thru the thrusters and a few climbs while I was out running. I took care of the rest of the climbs and the box jumps.

It was a good WOD but damn it took forever. Usually a 20 minute WOD is epic...this was 31 frickin minutes!! OUCH!! But I really needed a good workout today. Biking to and from the gym was definitely a great way to round out a tough workout.
