With the vest - just for "fun"

I am getting sloppy. I forgot to look up my previous PR (PPR) and walked in thinking that 1 rep max was 336#. So when I got 340# - I was happy and ready to walk away. But then everyone in the 1230 class was crushing PRs and some nice round #s - 200, 300, etc. So a stepped up to 350 - and failed. Then I got pissed off, tried again, and got it. Form was not ideal, but I kept my abs tight and the 350 lift was better than the 340 - per Melissa.

thing. I actually had sand in my shoes when I changed (Fl beach sand!)
Anyway. On Fri and Sat, those of us not doing sectionals gave their
workouts a try. Minus the rest in between. Coming back from a week
completely off, I was rested but rusty. Got almost 13 rounds of
weighted Cindy. Not bad. C&J was a no go. The rude welcome back of wod
1 was enough.
About 15 hours later I retuned for the last two wods. I scaled the oh
squat - which is my worst lift - and got 3+ rounds. With 5 min rest we
jumped into the last wod. I used the 88# kb, and got in 6+ rounds.
With no rest, that was ok.
Looking at our sectional competitors and some of the men's results, I
am blown away. My best would not get me in the top 100. Crazy.

My hands are wearing down. Last Friday with the heavy deadlifts, I ripped up a mess of hand on my left. And on the right, several layers are still missing and trying to rebuild.

Loved this one. Power, struggle, determination, ripped hands, fast feet and all. When burpees are the easy part of the WOD, you are in for a tough one. This is what CF is all about.

09:15 class and it was a small one. A good chance to get some coaching from Jerry, which is good. I think it is good to get tips from a variety of sources. Sadly, my lingering muscle strain is limiting my ability to get some big lifts. I am able to get right up to about my PR and then the pain overcomes my ability to ignore. Probably a good thing.

I had a nice chat with Jerry about my progress today. Kind of like the teacher conference that I will have with my 7 year old's teacher later this week. Anyway, with 1 year of CF under my belt, and my belt itself still being on the skinniest notch :> , I am a little lost as to what to do next. I am not signed up for the sectionals, there are no hoppers coming up, etc...
