Merrrrr. I'm already bored of not doing anything overhead. 

Snatch pulls felt really good today, 175 was heavy but the pulls are getting easier. 

Deadlifts were harder than I thought they would be, I thought I would be able to go a little heavier than 225 but my legs were not having it. I was really sore from all the squatting/lunging over the past two days and I couldn't keep anything tight on the deadlifts. It was difficult for me to keep my back straight and engage my legs, I just wanted to go loose the entire time. The weight wasn't heavy but I could tell my form was just not up to par so I didn't go any heavier than 225. 

I was disappointed with the row/run/burpee piece. I mean, I was definitely going at 90% but it just felt terrible. I was rowing a bit slower than normal, my pulls weren't as long because Balza told me to only bring the rower to my belly button. The run was too slow. The burpees were actually a decent pace but I rested too long between coming in from the run and starting the burpees. Everything was just stiff and tired. I don't know if I'm tired from being sick for a week or I'm just more stiff than usual since I'm not really doing any upper-body stuff, but I felt like garbage afterwards. 

I think I'm also going to cut back on carbs a bit while I'm not doing any upper body work. I feel like I'm using less energy than normal during training sessions right now and I'm already starting to feel sluggish.
