Up and at 'em!

Yesterday I just could not get out of bed!  I fell back to sleep while reading the posted WOD.  I must have needed the rest - it's abnormal for me to sleep so soundly after waking up.  I still didn't want to get up at 6:00, but I kinda need my job. 

Today I was ready to get back at it!  Of course, my back has other ideas.  It's getting better, slowly.  Our strength today was Front Squats (how I hurt my back to begin with!).  I started with just the 35# bar for the warm up, several sets with that.  Then I did 5 ea @ 45-55-65.  Still feeling a bit of strain at that weight so I stopped and got on a rower for 1000m.  That really helps loosen my back up.

The posted WOD:

21-15-9 Rep rounds for time of:

Power snatch (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)

What I did:

21-15-9 Rep rounds for time of:
Power Snatch (65#)
Push ups

My time:  10:18

The push ups, which hurt just a few days ago, did not hurt my back today.  So, things are progressing nicely.  The power snatches felt pretty darn good, and I felt great afterward.  Breck reminded me "you're gonna feel great all day", and of course he's right.  A good workout makes all the difference in my day!
