Monday: Rest
Tuesday:
500m row slow...
Tuck lever practice -- uggh -- couldn't hold even the tuck position. DOMS from ring negative dips, and all the rowing...

sn: Up to 47.5x1x5
jb: up to 55x3
j: Singles up to 68 -- PR, with more in the tank
fs: 70x3x3
press: 87.5#x5x3

Metcon:
3 rounds: 250m row + 5 thrusters. Untimed
I thought muscle fatigue would be the problem with the thrusters after the jerks, front squats, and presses. Nope -- poor conditioning hit me before muscle fatigue set in.

Sweet -- that got the one part of my p-chain that wasn't already in agony quite sore.

Need to remember to swing with the glutes, not the back....

Tuesday night: 5K row, just to loosen up.
Wednesday: restorama.

Friday, Saturday: recovery days in wine country. Mmmm Dry Creek.
Sunday:
sn: Up to 55, missed at 57.5
c&j: Up to 68. PR. Surprised at how easy the jerk was
bs: Missed at 106.5
press: 90#x5x3. Got all sets.

Looking back, I pushed the 5x5s a bit hard and fast. I might just need a little more recovery. The press work might have been the trick for the jerk.

metcon: 3 x (250m row + 5x95# thrusters). Untimed. I clearly have some trouble with glycolytic work -- the thrusters leave me absolutely gasping.

2000m row slow to cool down.
