Check it off the list

Flying home last night on the red eye I was thinking that this row series has been great to have me practice my pacing.   It has left me confident on the different pace speeds I can maintain consistently.  So when I landed I realized I had time to go to the 6:30am class. Then I realized that the 2k would hurt less than the 500m row.  So i decided to go for it.

A) Deadlift
5-5-5-5

225, 255, 285, 305
+
B) Row 500m 100%
-Rest as Needed-

Run Burpee Snatch

Coaching recommendation - Casual pace, looking to get the burpees down to a tempo that you can maintain for the whole workout.   Im not sure casual pace is in my DNA for a wod like this.  Turned up the pain dial and got after it.   Last round of burpees box jumps took a huge digger,   at least I was able to do a front roll so I could keep moving. Jammed a finger on each hand and they are both swollen so I hope that doesnt slow me down this week. 

20AMRAP
400m- Run
10-Burpee Box Overs 24/20
10ea- Alt.DB Snatches 35/20

5 Rounds plus 400m plus 10 +2

Home Straight Row Series 2017 - 2nd Attempt

Woke up this morning and my legs felt like wood.  Never a good thing when you have a comp to do, online or otherwise.    Met Anthony and Danny and did a slow warm up.   Didnt feel great still but knew that I had a score already on the board so that if I crashed and burned it wouldnt really matter.

  • 2A - Home Straight Total Time (3k)
  • 2B - Home Straight Final 1k Time
No matter how bad I feel lately I have been able to rally to get myself into the game so to speak.   Once I begin, I start to set little milestones that if I can meet will allow me to stay focused and moving.   I felt pretty good in the first 1k and tried to conserve in the second 1k and then go for it.



Comparison

10:46 vs 10:56
3:33 vs 3:40
3:37 vs 3:40
3:36.1 vs 3:36.2

All around improvement

14 Box Jumps 24/20
12 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls 95/65
12 Burpees
27 Kettlebell Swings, 1.5/1 pood


23:20


I really thought I was going to stop after one round.   The Thrusters were ridiculously hard , in fact everything seemed hard.   Anthony quickly got a few movements ahead, but like yesterday each round I felt a little bit better.   I guess its my body getting warmed up, although you think I would be warmed up after doing a 6k row before the wod.

Snatch Practice

Snatch Practice - Lightly attended class.  I was considering skipping it to to the rowing wod but  realized that It was a chance to spend a whole class drilling my technique, which is need of a lot of help.

 Sara gave us some good examples on to get the most out of the practice.

I opted for Snatch complex - used this movement series

Power Snatch
Squat Snatch
OHS

round 1 I used 1,2,3 rep scheme

5 sets at 75lbs

round 2 I used 3,2,1 rep scheme

5 sets at 95lbs

Round 3 & 4 went to 1PS and 1 HSS
5 @115lbs
2 @135lbs

Round 5 1 PS @155lbs

Ran out of time for more

Did Week 2 of the rowing comp - Home Straight. Consistent but need to gain 2-3 seconds per 500 to 1000.
