There has been more going on in my life than I would like to admit, but between school and everything else, I have been the busiest I’ve been in what seems like a year. I’m also still having the same sleeping issues, and that is causing me to suffer greatly, especially with motivation. I am looking forward to this break for Thanksgiving, and even more to getting back into Crossfit Carteret down in NC while I’m away. It will be nice to reset by the ocean for a few days.
- Jerk 1-1-1-1: 85-90(f)-85-85-85. My speed under the bar was really good, but I wasn’t getting a direct line of upward force. I think I didn’t have the bar racked close enough to my neck in the starting position, so it was floating out a little when I’d jerk up. But the last two felt really good and strong, and I think if I had tried 90 again at the end I would have been fine. I C&J’d 95 about a month ago, so I blame the forever exhaustion I feel.
WOD for Time: 12:23
- 10 Thrusters: 55lbs
- 10 Chest to Bar Pull-ups: First 6 unassisted!!!! Then ~20lbs assisted with band.
- 20 Thrusters: 35lbs.
- 20 Pull-ups: Unassisted.
- 30 Thrusters 35lbs.
- 30 Assisted Pull-ups: ~20lbs assisted, with band. They were awful at this point.
This was wild! The 30 thrusters at the end were the worst part. Thrusters are just so awful in general, but that is a LOT for the end of a workout. I liked the increasing ladder with decreasing weight, but it was a killer, especially since my legs were still sore from Monday’s squats.
Tomorrow we have squats and “Grace,”so I’ll inevitably be spending the rest of the night trying to figure out what weight I should use. Forever overthinking.
