This is the 5th workout this week and I am beginning to feel it. I’ve not put in this kind of effort since CF Leatherneck in Afghanistan, back in the good old days. I will certainly make the most of the rest day on Sunday.
With so much Snatch work this week, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the Cleans in this one but dug in to get them done and done well.
10 Rounds, 1 per 90 secs.
- 1 x Hang Clean
- 1 x Clean
50 / 50 / 55 / 55 / 60 / 60 / 65 / 67.5 / 75 / 80 / 85kg
My speed under the bar certainly decreased towards the end but I kept to time and was happy with the outcome.
5 Rounds for Time:
- 10 Kb Swings 32kg
- 10 Box Jumps 24″
- 400m Run
- 10 Burpees
- 10 Wall Balls 9kg @ 10′
This was going SO well in to the 3rd round. I was ahead of guys who would usually destroy me and really motivated to increase that lead. As I sped out of the box and on to my 3rd 400m Run, I suddenly realised I had forgotten the Kettlebell Swings!! Running the 60m back in to the box to do them, I was then overtaken. I sought to catch up but it was too much to regain. I should have simply done a further 10KB Swings at the end of the WOD but nevermind; it’s hard to think when blowing out of your arse. Total time for this WOD: 20:57 Rx
It’s fair to say that I am now very tired and could do with a rest but tomorrow I get the opportunity to get down to the Box for a Partner WOD.
