”There’s only one corner of the universe that you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”
– Aldous Huxley –
A. 20min Snatch Technique work
Worked up to an ugly 70kg Power Snatch and called it. (Squat snatch doesn’t work for wrist).
B. 2011 Games Open WOD 1, 10min amrap:
- 30 Double Unders
- 15 Power Snatch, 75lbs, 33kg
Score: 6 Rounds (Exactly same as last year!).
C. Punishment, Death by Row. 30s on/90s off, amrap split sub 1:30/500m
Score: 6 Rounds and then giving up..
OK, so if the only thing I can improve is my self and I struggle doing even that, where does that leave me?
Can read this result two ways, either I see it as I haven’t gotten any better at all in a full year. Or.. I chose to see it as I am still working on getting back after the accident, and at least now I am on the same level as last year. Sounds better anyway.
Different from last time is that now I went for it. First three rounds unbroken in just around 3.30 mins, then the slowmo-show started. Actually had 20sec left after the 6th round of PS, picked up the rope and realized there was a knot in it, tried to take it out quickly and managed to do another one(!), tried to jump with the short rope that was left and failed. Wouldn’t been happy with a few extra DU’s anyway.
Row was as dreadful as expected. Need to put in the extra work with conditioning and think Wednesday’s and Saturday’s are perfect since I’m having a rest day after them. Back at it on Friday.
