Coach John has a Comp Simulation planned for me this weekend but this trip to Florida to connect with Susie and the boys put a a big monkey wrench in it. On the off hand that the coaches at the Sandbox even remember who I am I sent them an email explaining the situation and asking if they could help me out. Much to my surprise they remembered Susie and I. I think it was pretty much because of Susie but that was ok by me. They said come on in and we will figure it out. A big Thank You to Gabby and Lori the coaches at the Sandbox!
I was super excited to set up outside after freezing my behind off for the last few weeks. This outside set up soon became more of a challenge than I expected. First off it was 80 degrees and I was practically melting. Not to mention that large bright object was burning my retina's out. Put the sun glasses on and got after while the class was doing Max dead-lifts.
15 thrusters @135
30 KBS @70
45 BJ 24"
15 thrusters @135
The thrusters were the thing that was going to take the stuffing out of me. I hit this one knowing that I should probably break up all the movements so as not to redline myself right out of the gate.
Round 1 - 10- 5 Thruster, 20-10 KB, Box jumps slow...., 20-7,3 KBS, Thruster - 10-3-2
Total time - 12:28
Right after this was done I scrambled to get my next bar and weights set up so I wouldnt be in the way when the class wod started their wod. I had about 15 minutes of rest and warmup before I hit the next wod.
I got this one totally wrong in terms of what would be hard. I was expecting the Jerks to be difficult but it was the deadlift. The deadlift totally wrecked me and left me very spent so I needed to compose myself before even starting the Jerks.
5 deadlifts @315
5 jerks @155 - bar is taken from the floor
When I was done I felt like I had been run over by a truck. Look at the photo, I look dead.
My neck has been bothering me for the last 3-4 days and it immediately tightened up. I was dragging even after lunch. About 3pm I knew that If I wanted to get the last wod in I had to do it now.
My equipment wasnt perfect. Had to use a smith rack for toes to bar and a curling bar for my bar for power snatches as I had to do the last wod from the Hillsboro Club gym. Good news was I had the place to myself and it was out of the sun. Bad news very difficult to kip cause the bar wasnt high enough.
10 PC's @75
4 rounds plus 21 reps. Toes 2 bar took me the longest.
Man these 3 wods have taken a bigger toll than I expected. Im trying to decide whether Im better off rest tomorrow or just dragging through tomorrows wods. I am so tired. Worried that the soreness will make it worse.
