04-10-09 Friday Week 10

115lb overhead squat.
This workout had me cursing Sven by the last set of deads.

I can always tell when I let a wod get to me mentally. I end up ranting towards the end about what a stupid workout it is. Oh, there's cursing and swearing and huffing and puffing and grunting, etc. But when you hear me ranting about it being stupid, that's when it's gone to my head. This wod was one of those mind-fuck wods. Of course, now that it's over and done with and I'm at home and have a belly full of salad, I'm thinking that it wasn't so bad -- but then I've also got myself propped up with some pillows stacked around me so that absolutely no muscles are necessary to hold me in an upright position.
Spencer did this one with me (Thanks, Spencer!)

Training Log
4:30ish PM
For time:
21-15-9 reps of
Overhead Squat 115 lbs
Deadlift 185 lbs

Time -- 16:24
Spencer -- 19:25 (115/205)

Post wod -- 1 mile run in 7:11
10 strict muscle-ups/no kip, practiced turnout

Uh... I was supposed to do this in under 13:00. Yeah. If the weight had been 20 lbs lighter on both of the lifts, that would have been possible. My abs are super sore from the 100 situps in Angie on Tues and my back was apparently still worn out from the deads I did post-Angie on Tuesday. My low back started spasming and it took me too long to recover to put up any kind of respectable time on that workout. The squats MIGHT have been unbroken if my shoulders and elbows weren't feeling so stressed from having that amount of weight overhead. Excuses, excuses. I know. At least I'm not calling it stupid anymore. I hope Sven isn't too disappointed.

That's an OMG WOD. Your posterior chain must have been fried going into the run. So when do you begin to taper?
So now I'm back and the gym is closed! :( Have a great Easter. I'll be in Tues.
