No Skip To My Lou

Luke is still recovering, so Jeff attends a session and then I’m on my own; thus, I coached both the 8:30 and 11 am workouts and worked out solo between sessions.

Today’s programmed workout:

Metcon (Time)

With a partner
Thrusters (95/63)
Partners may choose how to complete reps but each athlete must complete a minimum of 1 rep per round

Metcon (Time)

With a partner
500 air squats
Athletes must take turns completing 1 rep/turn

As I had no partner, I completed solo. I did, however, decrease weight of thrusters and SDHPs to 85# — and that was plenty heavy.

I felt very tired today, and often felt light-headed. I didn’t go all out, and I’m glad that I did not. I only completed the rounds of 12 & 9 SDHPs unbroken as well as rounds of 6 & 3 SDHPs and thrusters unbroken.

I hate thrusters. I. Hate. Thrusters.

I completed 84 thrusters and SDHPs in 17:29.

And then I completed 500 air squats. Five hundred. Gah!

I completed first 100 unbroken, albeit at a relaxed tempo. The next 100 reps I did based on effort, sometimes completing less than 10. And that made me upset. I completed the last 300 reps in sets of 10.

This took a long time to complete! How long? Fourteen minutes and 39 seconds.

My legs felt dead. D. E. A. D.
