Today was a glorious day! I have been sleeping amazingly, thanks to a new supplement I’ve started taking before bed, but I want to save talking about that for another post and after a solid week at least of taking it. I felt strong and in tune with my body today, and had a great workout thanks to that.
EMOTM for 10 Minutes of:
- 2 Deadlifts: 135lbs.
- 2 Burpee Pull-Ups.
WOD for Time: 8:17…ish.
5 Rounds of:
- 5 Clean and Jerk: 65lbs, Level I.
- 30 Double Unders: Rx.
I can’t remember what my exact time was, but it was under nine minutes and over 8. Somewhere near 8:17 I think? I had two rounds of completely unbroken DUs, and the other three I got up to 26 before a mess-up. Pretty awesome. Today was a good double under day, for sure. I’m very proud of myself for doing the clean and jerks at 65lbs. On Monday we essentially did c&js, with front squats between them, and I dropped down to 55lbs, which was lower than the Level I weight of 65. I was worried about the volume. But I did those just fine in the end, so I decided to jump to 65 today and I’m so glad I did! I split jerked every rep, which took less pressure off of my elbow at the dip-drive initiation.
So excited for the weekend of rest. I’m going to my grandma’s for the weekend, so I might miss Monday’s WOD depending on what time I get home. I love my family.
