Feeling Better

I was a bit tired after a long night out last night. This Mama isn’t used to staying out so late, but it felt good to dress up and enjoy a lovely meal with some friends.

I felt good in that outfit!

Still, I showed up for the Oly class this morning and I was a bit deflated when I saw we were doing Power Snatches again this morning… After yesterday, I didn’t have much faith in my abilities.

Power Snatch + 2 OHS E2M x6

We were supposed to work to about 75% of our 1RM. That would have meant 45# for me (my 1RM is 60#), so I pretty much started with an empty bar and worked up from there. Coach Caleb wanted me to stop at 55# and I was thankful for that. I felt much better in the power snatch today, but the OHS felt wobbly. Here were my reps:

35#-40#-45#-50#-55#-55#

Squat Clean Thrusters 5×5 E3M

We were to do these touch and go and 1 rep was a squat clean into a thruster. Those were hard. Coach Caleb wanted me to start at 55# and I didn’t think I would do well, but in the end, I got my head in the zone and pushed through. I was also ok when Coach Caleb came by and made me stay at 65#. His reasoning was that 65# is usually the Rx weight for the Open and I was struggling enough with that as it was.

55#-60#-65#-65#-65#

All in all, it was a good session and now, I have to get some groceries in order to cook for the next few days. Oh, and laundry, of course!
