…because today I rested (mostly), and that is quite dull. So, yesterday I was actually pretty tired and grumpy and didn’t feel at all like working out. I barely made it to the gym in time to get a workout in before coaching. Fortunately, Mikey is helping to keep me in line, and I practiced some heavy hang cleans (135#). I did 2 on the minute for 5 minutes. Then, I practiced my one-arm dumbbell snatch. I worked with the 50# for a while, then with the 70#. I’m working on split snatching, and got much closer than I did last time I tried, but still no luck. I’m pretty confident I can get the right arm, but not so sure about the left. At the Regional, I will have to do 5 on each arm in the time cap to advance to the next workout. Hoping! I ice bathed for 20 minutes following my workout… something I have really been slacking on lately 🙁
Like I said, today was light, and tomorrow Mikey and I will do day one of the Regional workouts, along with anyone who wants to join in with us. The first workout is “Diane” (21-15-9 Deadlifts and HSPU’s) at 9:30, and the second is a 2k row, 50 pistols, 30 hang cleans around 2ish, I think. Friday and Saturday, we will be doing day 2 and 3 of the Regional workouts. It may be the only time that I get to do the day 3 workouts, since I’m not too confident I will be advancing that far when the time comes. Not being negative, just realistic!
Ok, that’s all I’ve got for now. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll post some deeper thoughts on a blog post I read today.
