Getting Better

I walked 18 holes yesterday, but still not feeling like myself. I’ve had this cough for a week now. My energy does seem to be getting better each day though. My biceps and lats are pretty sore from the bar muscle-ups on Sunday.

Out in the garage in the early afternoon. Haven’t done an engine workout since the 7th with this sickness. Warmed up with a 3:00 row for 706 meters.

Year of the Engine – Interval

8 Rounds

  • 1:00 Row
  • 3:00 Rest

Over two weeks ago for 10x 1:00/2:00 I held a 1:34.9/500m pace, so I knew I could go faster with this being rest and fewer rounds. My goal was 1:32-1:33/500m.

Really surprised myself with this effort actually because I’m not 100%. Got 325-325-324-324-324-324-325-325 meters.

Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 Assault Bike (30 cals)
  • PVC Passes
  • Burgener Warm-up

Weightlifting

High Hang Power Snatch + Hang Power Snatch + Power Snatch

  • 2×75#
  • 2×95
  • 2×115
  • 2×135

Paused in both hang positions. Wasn’t going to push it today. Worked up a good sweat still though.

Conditioning

I went over to the dumbbell rack and did some single arm push jerks to warm-up so I wouldn’t have to mess around with a barbell since mine was already set from snatches.

Single Arm DB Push Jerks

  • 5/5 @ 30#
  • 3/3 @ 40#
  • 3/3 @ 50#

21-15-9

  • Push Jerks (135#)
  • Burpees Over The Bar
  • Toes-To-Bar

I wasn’t sure how the push jerks would feel, so I went in with a plan, knowing I might have to back off. Ended up sticking with the plan and did 9-7-5, 9-6, and 9. After the first round of jerks, I was already having a hard time breathing with this sickness. So I had some epically slow ass fucking¬†burpees, even stepping back in to most of them! I think the 21 took me around 2 minutes!! I was hoping I could use the same sets on T2B but decided against that as soon as I got done with those first burpees. I just tried to be quicker between sets. Did 6-5-5-5, 5-5-5, 5-4. Finished in 9:41. Would be a good one to try again when I’m feeling like myself.
