Today was the last full on workout before the Bartlett Park Ultras next Saturday. Next week I will be going light, but today was anything but light. Started with a 3 rep max clean:
Power Clean 3RM
Worked up to my 185 max, and then went for 195. I got it twice, but missed the 3rd rep. I’m not really disappointed in that. The 195 actually felt pretty good. Last Saturday, I had a hard time getting the 185 3 Rep max and it came much easier this morning so that’s good.
4 Minute AMRAP
- 5 CTB Pull Ups
- 10 Wall Ball Shots (30 Lbs.)
Rest 3 Minutes between each AMRAP
It’s crazy how much heavier the 30lb wallball feels that a 20lb wallball. It feels much heavier than 10 lbs. Those wallballs just destroyed me. On the first round I got 6 rounds even. Second round: 5 + 6 Wallballs. Third round: 4 + 1 Wallball. Fourth Round: 4 + 5 Pullups
Now I’m ready for a little rest. I’m really excited about the race next week. I guess because it’s been a while since I have ran a long way and I can’t wait to get out there in the woods. I also can’t wait to see how well I do. I feel like I am running much better than I have before, so we’ll see how it goes. My goal is to break 6 hours (50K distance), but I’ll be super happy if I get closer to 5:30.
