5 rft

20 burpees

15 power cleans 95/135 35(first 3 rounds) 45(last 2 rounds)

time 15:45

i honestly do not know how i pulled this time off but i am going to have to say it had something to do with working out 90 min later then normal, having done little to no exercise/labor over the weekend and taking my time on burpees.

this wod was all about pacing and i happen to have had one person in my class who is good but not so good i can never catch up and i tried to pace with her and while i ended up 2 minutes behind her i was able to follow her lead and kill it.  i am so proud of this time.

I only did half the reps (33) time 46:40 it was brutal.  it was busy since there were only two classes all do so we staggered which move we started on and I started with Knees to Elbows because a bunch other girls were. hanging on the bar has for sure gotten easier but knees to elbows still take me a good amount of time.  it was nice just working through on move and not having to worry about coming pack.  the sit ups were like a dizzying break which would have been nice later on.  the pull ups were slow go but i did all 33 unassisted and that made me very happy!! thrusters felt light at first but after doing 11 or 10 unbroken i was wiped. did the rest 6,5. wall balls were ok because the 10 lbs is way easier to through then that stupid 14lbs ball. so i thought wall balls were bad. i am pretty sure the burppes took me at least 10 min. dubs were not happening did 99 singles. deadlifts were ok same with kbs.  did small box.  moved a long on those.  afterwards i felt ill. i have not felt hat way in a while.  i have been hitting the weekends hard by eating whatever i want for a whole weekend including friday night.  i want to try to cut out friday night indulgences and mabye keep lunch or dinner “normal”  all and all i am happy where i am but i just hate feeling so ill after working out even though its rare since i do not do that many workout that are this taxing.

I wanted to do 35lbs because that is what the people in the class before me did but I was pressured into adding 5lbs.  the problem is i can do all these lifts with 55lbs well probably 85lbs, once.  its an interesting place to be.  i am more confident in my lifts then ever and i am stronger but my endurance has not changed a ton.  i am still unsure if i have dubs.  i need to do some slo-mo recording to look closer.  they do not sound like them, is it sad that i think if i get a smaller rope i will for sure have them?  i just do not think i am flicking my wrists fast enough.  either way they wind me like, woah and make me cranky. the push jerks felt never ending and same goes for the push press.  sdlhp are just dumb, not a fan. cleans! why. first couple are always a challenge.  trying to link some.  need to work on my feet re positioning.  hang power cleans was like the cherry at the end, unbroken.  

first, my box has an “athlete in training” program which is basically an advanced program but they do not have super set class times.  so people come when they can.  second, our box had a team go to the games which was awesome.  one of the games athletes was working out and decided in addition to doing there work to also do the above weight, rx.  she did it in 10 min flat! while you could see on her face she struggles she recovered in about 20 seconds.  Its one thing to see someone like that compete against a ton of amazing athletes at the games, regionals or local comps but to see them do the workout you just did with 25 more pounds and cut your time in half plus some shows just have athletic they are.  i have no interest in competing, at all, so i am not sure my point but i thought it was cool to see the difference in some of that caliber. plus i got to brag that we had a team go to the games.
