Fun day today. Started out with Front Squats:
- Front Squat 3RM; 5 x 3 @ 90%
I’ve really got to start recording this stuff. I worked up to 225# for 3, but I’m still not sure if that’s a PR or not. I’ll have to do some digging. At any rate, it was heavy. Then I did the sets at 205#. These were pretty tough, but felt good.
I was supposed to do Snatches and Sit Ups in the conditioning portion today, but something happened yesterday that prompted me to change that. I found this stupid app the other day called “Timehop.” So timehop sends you messages everyday showing you what your social media updates were from last year and older. So yesterday I came across this little update from 2 years ago:
As soon as I saw this, I became intrigued. I had to do it again to see how it was. So I did it this morning. Here it is:
- 400M Run
- 10 Deadlifts @ 275#
- 10 Burpees
I finished this morning in 20:39. Sure it’s a PR, but not by much. I must have really felt good that day two years ago. Wow! Maybe I was Deadlifting more back then or something. Those lifts got really tough after round 2. Run and Burpees felt really good though. I don’t know where this WOD came from, but you gotta give it a shot. It’s brutal. Only a couple more days of training before race week!
Such a good article, caught my sympathy!
