Finally the post-Murph soreness is going away, but my body is tiered today. After class yesterday in the a.m. and then a 32 mile ride last night, my legs kind of feel like lead. Consistency is key though, so I showed up at the box this morning.
Warm Up: The usual
SWOD: Press 3×8
Warm Up: 1×8 @33
I hate strict pressing. God it irritates me that I know I could get so much more weight over head if I could just bend my knees. That said, this felt pretty good. I probably could have gone to 53 for my last set, but rather than sacrifice the perfect form I had going to try to get more weight, I just focused on the skill. I struggle with keeping my rib cage down and not arching my back when I start to get tired, and am proud to say I only did that ONCE today, and corrected it quickly.
5 Rounds for Time
7 Power Snatch
Time: 13:12 @33lbs
I ended up doing a muscle power snatch as pulling from the ground still really bugs my back.
This was a really fun WOD. I’m still stupid slow on the run, and the heavy legs didn’t make that part any easier, but it’s getting better.
