I have been trying to break 1:30 in my 500M Row for the last 8 months. The best I have done this year is 1:31.7. My best all time way back in January of 2010 was 1:30.0. I really wanted to do that! There were 7 people in class today and we did 2 person heats. I went last so I could really focus. I was ready for the pain and just wanted to fight through it. I was in good shape through the first 250M and tried to not fall of the past for the next 150. With 100m to go I just had to give it everything I had. Final time 1:28.7! Yes - I crushed my time. It took a lot out of me and spent the next few minutes lying on the floor. I believe that I can go faster. I just need to work on rest, sleep and strength.
The next WOD was in my power alley aside from the med ball clean but there were only 5 so it wasn't going to slow me down that much. Since it was such a short one you had to be smooth. Of course that meant I miscounted and did a few extra reps. No big deal. Jack Daly put up a 1:40 that is no joke!
WOD: 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1
Toes to Bar
5 Medicine Ball Cleans between each couplet
Total time 1:50
Two short WODs but really hard. Hoping for a strength day tomorrow that is easy on my wrist which I tweaked yesterday practicing hand stands I think
