Well, my frustration hit a tipping point when I failed to put enough thought into my last post and wrote it directy into the blog page rather than Word. Yep, as you can figure, the one time I do that in the last two months the whole damn thing gets lost. Bummer.
So, now that that's lost, I'll postpone my next insightful post till tomorrow when I am a bit more chill towards writing. This post will be a bit about my workouts this week. Today I had some solid barbell work with power snatches and deadlifts. I pulled up 160# with relative ease, then just got stuck with 185#. I wanted so badly to just squat under it but I needed to struggle through the mechanics of this move and allow my legs to learn how to take control. In the end, I missed 6 attempts despite getting the weight well over my head. I finished with 5 smooth reps at 135#. I then moved on to deadlifts and was able to get 425# for 3 pretty comfortably. I am sure I would have broken my form unnecessarily if I went heavier. I then stretched a little and prepared for my group coming in.
I opted out of a metcon in the evening as my energy levels were real low and I am planning on a fun day tomorrow. Some gymnastics work in the morning for a solid 30 minutes along with some unilateral, core stabilization. Then, after a baseball game in Half Moon Bay I will be at the track!
The rest of the week has me cleaning, jerking, front squatting and conditioning on Wednesday; swim workout on Thursday; snatch balance, max verticals and a super heavy metcon Friday. Looking forward to it all!
