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!!!
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!! :)
