Failure & Redemption

Once again pressed for time as I started this workout.  I was hoping that my shoulder had recovered from the pullups and then muscle ups but quickly found out that Im not.

A) HSQSN 4-4-4-4 - rest 3mins
4@75lbs Warmup
4@95
4@115
4@125
1@145
F@145
F@145
1@145
F@145
F@145
Ok so that wasnt happening.

B) SNBAL 2-2-2-2-2 - rest 3mins
Was hoping this would go better.

2@125
2@145
1@150
F@150
F@150
1@140
Not good at all.


20 reps for time
HSQSN @95 vs 135 which was RXd
I warmed up at 115  as I knew that 135 was going to be too much.   After I failed twice in a row at 115 I dropped to 95 and just tried to keep moving.  By this time I was so discouraged I didnt I didnt even bother to time the wod.  Couldnt wait to get out of the gym.  I shouldnt be that surprised given the lack of sleep and poor eating.

PM
Came back to try and redeem myself by doing the interval wod I missed yesterday.  Shocking I know but I was pressed for time.   So what do I do when I am pressed for time?  Reduce the rest periods,
I was suppose to do 6 Minute rests and then a 10 min break between the sets.  Chopped that in half

90s sprint @100% on Airdyne
rest 3mins

The first round I went out way to fast and completely blew up.   Here is the HR


Not hugely satisfied with how I felt or did.  Didnt feel like i was full of energy or power.
