*13 hour fast - not really worth mentioning
SE @ 16:30

Metcon

3 rounds for time:
15 x 60kg Hang Power Clean
15 x Burpees

Time: 7 mins 43

Desperately poor time, even though there wasn't much harder I could have pushed. In mitigation, I was feeling terrible before this both mentally and physically. I definitely think that on a good day I could easily knock 2 minutes off this. Too many breaks for much too long.

Bit of a blip with regards to training and nutrition lately with exams coming up. Realised that to give my brain the best chance I should really be paying attention to my eating and sleeping, so I really made the effort today and will try to keep myself ticking over for the next 3 weeks til exams are over.

Pause Back Squat (3s in the hole) - find 3RM
45kg x 5
65kg x 5
90kg x 3 (last warm-up set)
105kg x 3
115kg x 3
125kg x 3
130kg x 3
135kg x 3

Heavy Singles (no pause)
150kg
155kg
160kg

Wow, there is no bluffing you way through pause squats! Excellent effort, very pleased with them all. The singles seemed easy in comparison. I honestly thought I'd be a million miles from the 170kg I did recently, but with a spotter I'd have comfortably tried it again.

Yesterday - rest day (through being busy, not through needing it)

Today

*19 hour fast

Metcon

3 rounds for time:
50 x Air Squats
15 x Ring Dips
10 x 135lbs Hang Power Cleans

Time: 7 mins 57

Haven't done air squats for a long, long time in a metcon. Last time I did was a Cindy or Chelsea where I had to quit because of back pain. No such problems today, which was good.

My training has gone to the dogs, royally.

BUT

Now I've been signed up for a competition in Manchester on July 17th! So now I need to hit CFFB hard and try get to the track as much as possible to prepare. Can't wait, it's so good to have a target to work towards.

Stealing this one for tonight, needed something with power cleans and dips, and it gives me a time to chase

i like to read and not say alot it took 18 months for me to make my first post ;-)
im going to try and get down just for the laugh, im in no shape to compete nor do i have the ability in half the movements required ie muscle ups and box jumps, but it should be good fun.
i used to train with all the guys when manchester just had one crossfit now everyone has spread out it will be good for the catch up

Day before last

CJ
60
70
80
90
100
110 F - clean, no jerk
115 F - clean, no jerk

Yesterday

50 Burpees for time:

Time: 2 mins 20 (PR by 10s)

Today

5 rounds for time:
10 x C2B Pull-ups
10 x Ring Dips

Time: 7 mins 17

Muscle frier. I actually feel fine, lungswise. C2Bs are weird - you can't really get enough of them to shock your CV system because your arms fail a lot sooner than in regular pull-ups.
