Wednesday 6/26 WOD at PCF

My mind is all over the place, so this entry is sure to be very choppy. Apologies in advance! Today was a great WOD day. My legs are still sooooo sore from Monday, so definitely I wasn’t looking forward to the wallballs or DB snatches. But my elbow felt pretty good today, especially after spending some time rolling out my left biceps on a lacrosse ball.

Strength:

  • Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1: (80-)80-85-85-85-85. Yeah! I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do all the sets at 85, so I got two solid singles at 80 first. But 85 felt amazing, and a few times it felt like I was having to pull the bar back down to my shoulders on the cleans from launching it so high! I lookcd back, and 90 was my previous 1RM for C&J, so I’m getting pretty excited to get back up to that. Also, I started working with a wider grip on both the clean and jerks, and it made a huge difference for my elbow.

WOD for Time: 12:27

3 Rounds of:

  • 5 Hang Power Clean: 65lbs, Level I.
  • 15 Alternating 1 Arm DB Snatch: 35lbs, Level II.
  • 30 10ft Wallball: 8lbs, Level II.

I was worried that the 35lb dumbbell was going to be too much on my left arm. I think I need to stop really worrying about my elbow when it doesn’t actually bother me very much anymore. I keep doubting myself and then having it feel completely fine, and I’m worried I might be limiting myself! So I stuck out the 35lb dumbbell and I’m so glad I did. They felt great! I also hadn’t done anything from the hang, so I kept that light. Maybe could have done 75lbs but was sketchy about my coordination ha.

Tyler comes home tonight after doing field work in Nevada for 5 and a half weeks! I can’t wait to continue clean eating with him and start working out again together! I’m going to try to drag him to yoga with me tomorrow morning!

After yoga last week!

Before and after yoga last week!
