Snatch--Heavy Single: 140 (new PR by 5)
C&J--Heavy Single: 185 (failed jerk at 205 and 195)
Front Squat--Heavy Single: 215 (failed at 225)

(per definition of "heavy singles", I wasn't trying to hit failure. just figured I could hit my previous PRs at these. couldn't even come close. wow!)

Metcon: decided to add push-ups between pull-ups and K2Es (don't ask me why--I don't really know...). Time--11:49

Snatch- Personal Best is 232# but could only manage 208# today and missed 213 twice

Clean and Jerk - PR is 280 but struggled with 252 but got it on my second attempt

Front Squat- used 5 sets of singles ... PR is 305 but finished barely getting 264...

Got a LONG ways to go... give me a few more weeks and I'll be closer

Snatch - Heavy single - 80 kg
Clean & Jerk - Heavy Single - 100 kg
Front Squat - Heavy Single - 117.5, 122.5 failed

This is pretty good considering it's 3rd day in a row, I hauled about 1500 lbs of top soil around to the back of the house (40 lb bags on a 2 wheel hand truck through soft grass from rains) along with about 250 lbs of keystone bricks before working out today. Plus I'm only two weeks after competing in the National Masters meet. Not bad, they all felt pretty good.
