Snatches, Deadlifts, and Swimming
Started with strength and 3 of us worked on the snatch. After hitting 165, the trainer told me to jump to 205. A big jump but he said I made 165 look so easy. After I missed at 205, he said I could easily get 185 but was probably too tired from all of the reps at the lower weights. Next time I will start off heavier than I did and see how it goes. To take a shot at 200+ was really cool though. Especially considering during the Games Open WOD I couldn’t snatch 165.
You know what would have made this WOD really awesome? No running. My goal was to go unbroken on the deadlifts and keep an even pace on the run. I was able to do that and finished in 10:14 so I was pretty happy about that.
Still fighting a chest cold and feeling flat overall. A buddy told me I looked like a piston on the deadlifts but inside I felt like I was moving through quicksand. I even felt flat on the strength portion, which is usually my favorite thing to do.
So what do you do during lunch when you are tired? That’s right, you go swimming! A friend and I hit the pool and did our partner sprint. While one sprints 25m the other rests. It really wears me out but I absolutely love it. Today we went for 30 minutes and got in 1100m total each.
