Today was the first day I felt back to normal. Huzzah!

I forgot how difficult snatch balances are. First two sets were pretty easy but I failed the third rep at 105 so I just redid it. 

DB row definitely got tough at the end, the 90 pound DB was hard to grip with my tiny child-size hands.

Barbell farmers walk was a success this week! I was able to pick them up on the first attempt for both sets, no swearing was involved this time. 

Handstand walk feels like it's getting slower, it's nowhere near the speed it was when I was practicing for regionals. I broke once on the first set, second set was unbroken.

Prowler sprints were almost semi-enjoyable today, I was sprinting hard. I do enjoy sprint work. I won't be saying that in two weeks though when they're up to :20. 

I enjoyed the not for time stuff today, sorenson hold was easy. L-sit is still terrible as usual, I'm really trying to get better at this. The hold at the top of the dead hang to inverted is cool, I like it.

Definitely still feeling a bit worn out today, legs were really tired. 

Enjoyed the AM session, it was nice to have some different movements in there, I like the dead hang to inverted with the pause at the top. 

I was pretty disappointed with my 5RM touch and go power clean, I thought I would easily hit 180 since my power cleans have been feeling so good lately. Merrrr. I worked up to 175 and it was really tough, I knew I wouldn't be able to go any higher. It was just so hard. WHY.

I really liked the behind the neck push press!

Four sets for even times were decent, my legs were jelly on the burpees. Wall walks were definitely faster than last week and deadlifts were easy. I lost it on the burpees during the last two sets.

Overall a decent day, body is still feeling tired from the competition.
