Well....the day arrived where things started to click. On 4/21 I was able to snatch 75#! Coincidence, I think so......WOD 11.1 is not ready to be tackled:
Open WOD 11.1
15 Power Snatch 75#
8 Rds + 7 DU's
I was happy with this considering my lungs felt like this was my first Crossfit WOD! I felt horrible....but loved being able to complete it pain free. After the WOD I started to power clean and ended up doing 255#. The day was awesome.
I had plans to try WOD 11.2.......I tried a couple of push ups and new I could get through it:
Open WOD 11.2
9 DL 155#
12 Push ups hand release
15 Box jumps 24'
11 Rds + 1 PU
I felt great again, only slow. I did not get to be really fatigued like I did in WOD 11.1, but I did learn some things. The most important being how to jump fast again on the box. It took me a few Rds of jumping slow to get my confidence back.....then I felt great.
I new I could power clean at this point but had not placed much weight overhead. Soooo......I place 155# on the bar and tried to clean and push jerk it........NO PAIN! YES! Next.....Squat clean.....good again. I then put it all together and did a squat clean and jerk. I now new WOD 11.3 was doable. WHY NOT RIGHT NOW....so 1 hour after 11.2:
Open WOD 11.3
AMRAP 165# Squat Clean and Jerk
Super stoked to get this back in my arsenal.
I went in to get 11.5 done this morning. I had tried a dip and could not put pressure on my shoulder so I new 11.4 was not in the running yet. I was still unsure about Toes 2 Bar as well. Until I jumped up and did 3. Painful but very doable. I figured a game plan up......if I break up the T2B 6 and 4 I should be able to give my self enough rest in between as to not irritate it to much. Well.....that worked out great and I was able to get through it:
Open WOD 11.5
5 Power Clean 145#
15 Wall Balls 20#
11 Rds + 7 Wall balls
I went unbroken on the wall balls which just 3 days ago I was not able to do. I was sure I would be fine when I decided to try 2 Min of Max wall balls after I was able to do 1 pain free the day after I could not do 1. I went 65 unbroken in 2 min...........I am getting closer and closer! Very excited!!!!
