It was a little bit harder than usual getting up this morning to go to Skills class. I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t done anything Crossfit related in the past week (Ben was away and I was at work with already paying a lot for childcare so I didn’t go workout for an entire week) or the fact that Rina is sick again and she was up every hour last night. At one point, I just cuddled in her bed with her and fell asleep next to her. When she woke up again, we then moved to our bed and had more room to all sleep together.
All this to say that I was really tired after only sleeping for 3 hrs after my night shift and a very broken up night. Here’s what we did this morning:
Power Clean and Jerk 5×2 @85%
Well, since my weight isn’t really heavy on these, there was no such thing as @85% for me. I actually went to 109% today and that’s yet another PR for me @60#. The cleans felt good. I can finally pull the bar along my legs without my shins screaming in pain (from my landing on the box a month ago) and the hook grip felt somewhat good. I have really small hands and fingers and that makes it hard to get the proper hook grip around the bar. I also need to remember to release the hook grip in the Jerk portion. More to work on! 🙂
Bear Complex 5×3, rest 90s between each sets
We weren’t allowed to drop the bar between reps on these, but we were allowed to rest it on our legs. I used the same weight (55#) as I had 2 weeks ago. My 4th and 5th sets were silly. I either forgot to go into the squat after the clean or to do the thruster coming out of it. I then started from the beginning which meant I added reps to my work and I was pooped! 😦
The rest of today will be spent with my two lovelies, hanging around the house. I went for a little walk to the drugstore with Béa already to get more Tylenol for Rina and I was thinking about taking her to the medical clinic, but she actually drank a smoothie this morning. I’m glad she’s at least hydrating herself! Hopefully, she’ll be on the mend soon!
