HEY DC BABIES!
What should we do on stage for ***TRUTH OR DARE***??
Lick someone’s palm in the audience
10 mins to establish 1RM Clean and Jerk, then
4 RFT: 15 Thrusters (45#), 200m Side Shuffle Run
The night before this WOD I was already thinking about the C&J. Get under the bar, nail the jump, full extension. Mental cues to help me hopefully beat my previous PR (195#). After going through my warm up, I started the clock. 135#, easy. 145#, easy. 165#, easy. 185#, easy. At this point I decided to jump up to 205#. I felt strong during all of my pulls but ended up holding on to the bar too long and guided it to my rack as opposed to letting it crash on me. I gathered myself, tight, dip, drive…then lost it. No full lock out and a short jump. Failed three times. Upsetting, but I did successfully clean 205# three times, so I did take away something from the work. 185# RX
As for the conditioning WOD, it was good to get outside. And I was surprised how much my feet were burning because of the lateral running. Still felt good though. 7:09 RX.
2 x 1 mile intervals, Rest 3 mins between rounds
These were my first runs in my new CrossFit Nano Speeds, and they felt decent. I actually felt like there was cushioning between my feet and the asphalt, at least compared to my old ASICS Trail Hyperspeeds that needed desperate replacement. Focusing on my form and breathing, going out for a run always feels good for me. Can’t wait for my CrossFit Endurance course!
