5 rounds for time of:

400 meter run
15 overhead squats (men 95 lbs, women 65 lbs)

My time: 18:13 Rx, unbroken - PR by 2:07!!!

I was tired and sluggish this morning, but knew I had to get this WOD under 20 minutes. My previous PR was 20:20, and I knew I could at least cut 20 seconds off. So, I set out to do that. I questioned myself through the entire workout (are you pushing as hard as you can?) and in the end, I was surprised at my time. I cannot imagine getting any faster on the overhead squats, so if I want to beat this new PR, I'll have to run faster next time. For now, though, I am satisfied with this new PR. Life is good.

Anyway, a great way to end the week and start the weekend!

Previous Nancy times:
2/18/10: 20:20 ,Rx, unbroken
12/12/09: 21:18, Rx, unbroken
11/23/09: 23:33, Rx, unbroken
8/10/09: 20:41 Recovering from shoulder injury using 22 lbs
2/4/09: 18:47 First attempt at Nancy - with a 45 lb bar

Strength component this morning was power cleans. This is probably my weakest lift.
5 @ 65
3 @ 85
2 @ 90
5 @ 95
went back down to 65 to work on form and did about 10-12 lifts. I'm not "getting" something right with this lift...needs improvement.
