Monday 8/26 WOD at PCF

This has been the craziest 10 days! Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to get a Friday OR Sunday workout last week, so I only made it 2 times for the week. Bummer, but oh well, life happens. Due to my new school schedule, I have to return to evening workouts, with my Mondays being at 6:30pm. So late! I had my first late workout yesterday (Monday) and it was awful! I was weak and slow and everything hurt and today I feel like complete death. Hopefully I’ll get more used to this, and won’t feel like dying after getting into this new routine.

Strength:

  • Front Squat 3-3-3-3: 105-105-105-105. Like I said the week before going to the beach, I wanted to stay here for another week. And these felt even heavier today. There was no way in the entire world that I was going to get any more weight for 4 solid sets. But I did them, and that’s what matters. Next week…110. It’s happening for at least one set.

WOD for Time: 11:39

21-15-9 of:

  • Thrusters: 55lbs, Level II.
  • Burpees: Rx.
  • Kettlebell Swings: 35lbs American Swing, Rx.

This was annoying. KB swings and burpees, totally do-able. A couple weeks ago I did thrusters at 65lbs (5 sets of 7) with no issue. But these today DESTROYED my wrists. I’m not sure why the thrusters were so hard on them today randomly, but man oh man. I was almost in tears after the first round. I should have broken them up more from the start, but eh. Rx was 65lbs, but we were supposed to stay around 10 to 13 minutes, and I definitely would have taken longer than that if I had gone heavier, looking back. Felt good to do full KB swings at a manageable weight. One of these days I’ll get them at 53lbs. One of these days.
