I need to make up some kind of PR dance, either for in the gym, or once I get home. Not many things make me as happy as new PRs do. Today was a great gym day.
- Clean and Jerk 1-1-1-1-1: 85-90-90-90-95(PR!)!!!! Yes! PR’d my back squat yesterday, and PR’d my c&j today! I know not every day at the box is going to be a good one, so I’m feeling really happy about this.That is even a pre-injury PR! It was a little wonky, but I got it. I can’t wait to hit 100lbs on it. Erika said that my jerk looked super strong today, which is what I’m more concerned with as far as my elbow, which is what pushed me to try 95 once.
WOD for Time: 14:09
5 Rounds of:
- 7 Thrusters: 65lbs, Level II.
- 7 Toes to Bar: Level II reps, Rx movement.
- 14 Box Jumps: 20″, Level II.
This was an epic win as well. I loaded up a 35lb bar with 2 10s and 2 5s, instead of 2 15s, for fear that I wasn’t going to be able to follow through with 65lbs the entire time. But I did! And I did all rounds unbroken for them! The TTB were better than expected, and I didn’t have to drop from the bar for the first two rounds. I’m still trying to get my kip down to string them together, but at least I can get two now! And the box jumps felt good today too. All around, great gym day. Now back to millions of hours of homework. Boohiss.
