Hump Day!

OH, this was one of those days I questioned my sanity for getting out of bed and going out into the brutal cold to torture myself with squats and sit ups and double mocha latte half caf burpee double pullups with extra whip.  Yeah, wait, that's my Starbucks order.  But these fancy new burpee combos are getting out of hand. 

So here's today's WOD

3 Rounds of:

As many rounds as possible in 4 minutes of:

5 Hang Clean (Power or Squat) 165/115lbs (RX+ 205/140, 55+ 125/75)
4 Jerks (Power or Split) 165/115lbs  (RX+ 205/140, 55+ 125/75)
3 Double push-up burpee double pull-ups (RX+ 3 Muscle-Ups)
2 Minute rest between rounds

*Start up each round where you stopped on
the last round. Score is total rounds and reps.

My total:  6 rounds + 4 jerks

Not sure if the 2 minute rests are a blessing or a curse.  Mentally it's usually kind of helpful to have a break, but this time, after the first round I thought, "Oh, crap, we have two more rounds!"  In hindsight, I should've gone with a heavier weight, but I'm working my way back up to "heavy" after two weeks off.  I'll get there.  Probably won't ever catch me doing "Rx+" though.

I was feeling extra sleepy today and actually considering giving up the 5am class.  But I know myself too well. I'm a die-hard morning person, and probably not going to change any time soon. 

Strength was a complex of 1 power clean, 1 hang squat clean, and 1 jerk.  5 sets

My loads:  65-85-95-105-110

All my lifts felt pretty decent today.
