Sunday 1/20 WOD at PCF

Just a quick write-up about today’s WOD! I need to get some sleep and recover for tomorrow’s leg demolition day of squats, rowing, and thrusters!!

Strength

  • Behind-the-Neck Push Press 2-2-2-2-2: 70-70-70-70-70. This surprised me! I was thinking that I would barely be able to get 55 up. I felt strong and like I could probably get more weight up, but there were a couple times where the bar came down hard on that big bulgey vertebra at the base of my neck, and I just decided to stick at 70 since I hadn’t done these in forever. Although, I did feel more confident about these, since my chin wasn’t in the way to smash!

WOD for Time: 10:23

  • 30 Burpees
  • 20 Alternating Leg, Single Arm, Overhead Dumbbell Lunges: 25lbs
  • 30 Hand-Release Knee Push-Ups
  • 20 Alternating Leg, Single Arm, Overhead Dumbbell Lunges: 25lbs
  • 30 Knee Push-Ups
  • 30 Burpees

I did the rep scheme for the Rx’d level, but had to be on my knees for all the pushups, which put me at Level I. Also, I was 5lbs short of the Level II weight for the lunges. I should have gone for 30, but it just felt so damn heavy before the WOD started. Eh. Oh well. Very impressed with my performance and my endurance through this one. Short bursts of rest to shake out my arms and shoulders, and did both sets of burpees without any rest whatsoever. Needless to say, my arms and shoulders are completely toast tonight!

I also bought a new gym bag today, and I’m very excited to get back to supplementing some strength days at the school gym once classes start up again on Tuesday. AHH. That is terrifying, but I’m definitely looking forward to the routine of it all, I suppose. And carrying all of my swag in my sweet new bag! Yay, retail motivation!
