Our internet has been out for over a week, so I haven’t been able to update. I just posted the two I missed, and here is today’s! We went climbing for a few hours yesterday with some friends, so my forearms and legs are still feeling that a little.
- Front Squat 3-3-3-3: 100-100-100-100. This was the perfect weight this week. On the last two sets I really had to fight for the last rep. I was tempted to try 105, but I was already struggling so hard I figured I’d probably fail. Also, since last week was the first time ever doing a set of 3 at 100, I wanted to get 4 strong sets in before going heavier.
WOD for Time: 11:11 total (Annie: 7:30)
- Double Unders: Rx, ALL UNBROKEN!!!!
- Sit ups: Rx. 50&40 rounds were slow, but all were also unbroken.
Then right into:
- 50 Wallballs: 14lbs to 9ft, Rx-. Rx was to 10ft, but there was no way that was happening for all 50. I split these into 20-15-10-5, which was better than my original plan to go 15-15-10-5-5. They felt steady and consistent.
Last time we did Annie, I did it in 8:30. Today, I beat that by an entire MINUTE. As I said, all of my double unders were unbroken, which is really freaking awesome, and the wallballs actually weren’t too horrible. I no-rep’d myself on three, because they didn’t quite make the 9ft mark. I liked this. Annie is a good benchmark WOD, but I’m glad we had the extra wallballs at the end. I’m so bad at them/hate them dearly, so it’s good to be able to work on a weakness a little. I’m also proud of myself for sticking it out with the 14lb ball.
