Vacation Day!

I'm taking another vacation day today. I had several unused days that I needed to burn before the end of the year, so I have scheduled almost every Friday off through the remainder of the year. It's nice to sleep in an extra couple of hours before going to the gym.

Todays WOD:

Squat clean and jerk 30 reps for time. (Men 155 lbs, Women 105 lbs)

My time: 16:43, Rx

I loved this workout in concept. Execution was another thing entirely. Clean & Jerk is one of my favorite lifts. Squat clean makes it way more difficult and time consuming. Well, for me anyway. I'm amazed by some of the times posted today. Paige, Jennifer, Loren, Breck...these people are just incredible. Even though it took me forever to finish, I didn't have any missed reps. I had two jerks that I felt my core wasn't tight enough, but other than that, everything felt pretty solid.

Now, if I could just convince my body to not demand so much oxygen. Breathing takes up so much time! ;)

Strength today was, of course, Squat Clean & Jerk:

rep scheme: 5-3-2-1-1-1
my loads: 65-85-95-105-115-125

  1. 105 is heavy and this is considerably more work than Grace, which I seem to recall is one of your faves. Strong work! As for the additional jerks afterwards, holy cow woman! Look at you go!
