Finally after a few days of draggin at the box I was finally feeling close to my old self. I wasn’t dreading going in this morning even though it was soooo cold and I was better prepared to just do work.
Skill/Strength: Overhead Squat
It was mostly a warm up for the MetCon that was waiting for us. It’s been a while since I’ve done any OHS and over time I’ve learned to get comfortable with this movement. This morning my comfort level dropped as I added weight. It didn’t help that my forearms were tight from the KB Snatch yesterday and it really didn’t help that the BAR was F(uh)RRRREEEZZZIIIINNNNGGGG!
MetCon: 10 minute AMRAP: 60 Bar Facing Burpees, 30 OHS, 10 MU
This makes me laugh cause SERIOUSLY I’m not even getting 1 ROUND of that insanity! Although it is totally doable. Now the RX was 90lbs which is my 1RM. In my weak state I thought I might get to 75lbs but stayed at 65lbs to be safe. And that was a good idea. I wasn’t all that composed after doing the 60 burpees and I struggled at 65lbs. Overall I felt I paced my burpees out well. I had 4 minutes left for OHS and for me RING ROWS instead of Muscle Ups. I thought I got this. I can make it through 1 round at least! OHS got me today folks. I couldn’t find a rhythm, I never found my happy place and I struggled. I fought for 20 reps before time ran out. Not too down this morning though, I kept steady on the burpees which is not typicaly for me. Typical for me is do 15 and stand around or lie on the ground pausing for too long, wasting time! Today I just chug a lugged along. There is hope for us all. I get back on track and y’all don’t have to read about me being a big girl baby day in and day out!
