Over my head!!!

OH my it is GOOD to be back! I can't tell you what the last three weeks have been like! Between school, prepping for the standardized tests, working like a fiend at the restaurant, being sick, trying to CF, moving my house, traveling back to PA for my friend's wedding, coaching... AHHHHHHH! It's been insaneo, but GUESS WHAT?!?! It's done! I've survived the move, the crazy work schedule, sol's started today and will be done soon, and that means the school year is winding down too.

That also means that now I can get back into CF more, and I can get back to my diet, which has gone by the wayside due to, well, everything. So... I'll post a wedding photo so you can see how cute I looked (and so I can prove that I DO wear dresses). But in the meantime... CF! I got over my head today!!! ;)

Today's wod was.... SNATCHES!!!
Snatches 1-1-1-1-1

Yuppers... I haven't hit these in awhile, so I was STOKED to see these on the white board. Last time we hit snatches I got 95 off the floor, and then started to lose things in translation. I just couldn't get my hips open enough, and so then switched to the hang position for a few and tried to put up 100 and 105. I got 100 from the hang, but couldn't get 105 at all.

Today though, I failed once on 95 from the floor, then came back and got it. I threw on 100 and threw that up from the floor, then threw 105 on the bar and hit that from the floor too!!! I was stoked! After 105, I thought I had more in me. I had 110 on the bar and threw it up over my head too! But.... I couldn't lock it out. I was determined to get it and tried 3 more times but to no avail. I could get it overhead but couldn't lock it out and stand up with it.

I was bummed that I couldn't get 110, but 105 was a new PR and 110 still felt pretty good for a failed weight. I was glad to start the week over my head! I hope you enjoyed my musical selection again today!! :)

what? you got married?

Katie said...

LMAO... no no... anonymous I did not get married... anon who are you?

One of my really good friends got married and it involved me traveling back to PA in the middle of all the insanity that has been going on...

For me to get married... well, I have to find someone who can put up with me, or better yet, handle me first!

I'm finding snatch very hard at the moment. I'm going to go back for more tuition on it in the summer.

Well done yet again Katie!

Back with a vengeance, Katie! Great work!

Wow...nobody has even made any gratuitous snatch jokes either.

Steve.... the snatch is one of those things that takes work, but once it clicks it clicks. Of course it would click faster if we snatched everyday, but we are constantly veried... not O lifters.... stick with it! :) How're things across the pond Steve?

Thanks Jerry! Always good to start a Monday with a PR! :) That was fun, but still very FRUSTRATING!

Justa, I have been missing the gratuitous snatch references from my blog... feel free to make as many as you'd like... :) ;)

I was soooooooooo tempted to make a snatch joke.

Life is good in the UK thanks Katie.
My current gym is going a little globo for my liking however.
