I'm exhausted. Yesterday's training took it out of me. I know that there are a few people at my gym that can train multiple times a day but I'm not that person. I did Crossfit, worked all day, took the dog for a walk and then did 1.5 hours of weightlifting. I find that it is hard to switch off after weightlifting, it's like my brain is wired and I can't turn it off so I find it hard to go to sleep. I should have had a rest day today and my effort in today's WOD reflected that. Why do I keep doing it to myself?
Despite all that, I had a great session at weightlifting last night. I actually got a full snatch last night!!! Happy days! Okay, it was just with the 10 kg bar but I'm not sure if I have ever gotten into a full snatch from the ground (I did when I did the one-on-one session with the weightlifting coaches but that was from the hang). To most people this would seem like a small insignificant thing but, to me, it's a big fricken deal!
We then went onto power clean and jerk and I was really happy with how I went. I got some pretty good feedback and worked on improving my shrug. I also need to work on opening my hips more.
The last thing we worked on was our front squat. I had Shane spot me when I went for my 1RM of 55 kg but unfortunately failed the attempt. I still feel really good about it as it is good for me to try and push myself out of my comfort zone.
I may be tired today but I'm also really happy. Early night for this chook tonight though :)
