It would be fair to say that I wasn't looking forward to this workout this morning. Last time I did this I really struggled with the OHS, to the point where Tia suggested I just move onto the next exercise as my form was being compromised. I finished the WOD only getting to the sumo deadlift high pulls.
I'm really happy with my progress. The run was really good. I managed to keep the other girls in my sights the whole time (normally I'm left for dead). I felt like this was a big deal for me as I'm a very slow runner.
I chose to use a box to help me with my OHS form but perhaps the 16" box was a little too high as the overhead squats weren't too taxing. I was stoked to do all 50 reps though!
I kept the same scaling for the sit ups as there is no way I would be able to do 100 GHD sit ups. This section actually felt like a bit of a rest period and I didn't mind just trying to keep a reasonable pace.
I got a good run at the start of my double unders and then they went to shit. I tried not to get frustrated and took the time to get my breath back but this is what slowed me down the most. Anytime I had made up during the OHS and sit ups I lost it and then some in the double unders.
The sumo deadlift high pulls were pretty easy with the very light weight I was using. My forearms were the limiting factor and I found I had to loosen my grip on the bar to try and give them a rest. My forearms have been very tight lately. As with the OHS I tried to do sets of 10.
I hadn't set up plates for my box jumps as I didn't really think I would get to it. I chose to do step ups on the 16" box. This was another one where I could just switch off and try and maintain a pace.
We had a 30 min cut off and I missed it by 1 rep. So frustrating!!! Of course, my brain went to the areas where I should have done better ... the rest breaks that I took that I didn't need. The double unders let me down. I think I could have finished it if I was able to string more together. All that aside, I'm still happy with how much I improved since June.
