So so’

“So'” is an abbreviation of “sore”. I’ve run many a marathon and ultra in my life, but I can’t ever recall a time when my glutes and hamstrings were this sore. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to power snatch today…

I attended the 11:45 session led by Coach Emily, as was fortunately able to power snatch 115#, 10# more the previous 1RM. It wasn’t pretty. I tried 120# but I just couldn’t get it up. [Insert impotence joke here.]

5-min AMRAP
— 5 Chin-ups
— 5 American KB swings (52/44)

Rest 1 minute

4-min AMRAP
— 4 Chin-ups
— 4 American KB swings

Rest 1 minute

Max reps unbroken pushups

My goal was unbroken reps, and I achieved this goal. Chin-ups, however, were much more challenging than I imagined they would  be.

I completed 8 rounds + 4 reps (84 total) 1st AMRAP, 7 + 2 reps (58 total) 2nd AMRAP, and 50 unbroken hand release pushups. I could’ve completed more but I didn’t want to show off. I know, it’s hard to believe, isn’t it? But it’s nonetheless true.

Total = 192
