I did not do nearly as well as I had hoped. I feel like I am a ton stronger than last year, and my snatch weights have reflected that. But all the burpees wore me down. Which is exactly the point. And as low as my score was (116, or only 16 snatches through at 135#) it reflects where I am. I was strong enough to do the lifts, just to tired to put them together. No misses. Lots of staring at the bar.
Surprisingly, my results were not too bad compared to other masters competitors. 60th percentile of 40+. and 70th percentile of the 45 and older (I'm pretty close).
On to week 2.
