I thought my workout went well this morning… until I looked at my time the last time I did the WOD.
At least I didn’t use less weight.
12 Deadlift (M 155# / W 105#)
9 Hang power cleans
6 Push jerk
Time: 14:34 @ 65#
This is more than 4 minutes slower than when I did the same WOD at home in March with the same amount of weight. In March, I was fresh off the I AM Challenge and I had been able to increase the weight on this WOD AND cut my time from December.
I have to admit. I felt fatigued this morning. Andy and I did straight strength Monday night, plus I’ve had three days in a row of less than 6 hours sleep. So I’m not freaking out about my time or anything.
It was an off day. Also, I’ve noticed I’m a lot stronger in the afternoon and evening than I am in the morning. It’s not really fair to compare a morning workout versus an evening one. The evening one is almost always better.
This morning, I really focused on form. Zach pointed out how I was leaning forward with the bar, particularly while moving the bar overhead, so I made an effort to stay in my heels during the dip-drive.
I focused on form Monday night, too. Here’s what we did:
Shoulder Press / Ring Rows
Both Andy and Luke start Crossfit this week! I’m planning to take pictures at Luke’s next class. He loves it!
