As I progress and get better I more and more realize that I am out......broken record I know. But, in a few weeks I will be 100%....run through the Open WODs and NOT be in......building back my strength and lunges. It is great getting better......but hurts to watch this competition on the sidelines when I know full well I will be able to compete when the Regional comes around. But.....having the Box make it to the Regional would help soothe the pain.
On to the WODs. Yesterday was a good day....but had me realizing I have lost some of my "Go":
20 Min AMRAP:
6 Deadlifts 225#
9 Box Jump 24'
12 Pistols (alternating legs)
This was a good one for me but had me taking my time. The pistols were brutal and I was going pretty sloe through them. I need to keep working on them. It reminded me of the Arnold when we did "Mary" but I busted through them like nothing.....it was probably the adrenaline of competition, that always pushing me to another level.
After a break:
Sucks just as much as I remember, still great to do it at 9 MPH.
This morning I woke up ready to go. I wanted to do some heavier power cleans from the ground. The first time doing them....and I felt I could handle them:
10 Rds (:30 sec per Rd)
5 Power Cleans 135# every
I was able to get through all the Rds in under :12 and went unbroken on all of them. I liked the feeling from this WOD. Other then the pain I started to get in my collar bone....but it was one I was able to push through.
I will see what tonight holds. Hopefully something good! And.....I CANNOT wait to do Burpees....they are my life blood!
