Last night’s WOD had me worried due to the lingering hamstring tightness from Friday and the weight of the squat clean/thrusters on my knee. It turns out that my shoulder was the bigger concern when it was go time. The first round was very tough to get the bar overhead with the tear in my labrum, but rounds 2 and 3 were a cinch. I think it was just a little frozen from no weekend WODs. I was able to get going and my rowing helped me pull through with a good time. I averaged about 1:40 across all three rounds with the last round coming in at 1:39.4. Based on the times on the board and from watching stronger folks scale down or struggle, I was hoping for sub 20 minutes. I think I had the 3rd fastest Rx time at the end of the night.

Tonight is “Lynne” with bodyweight benchpress and max pullups. Well, I haven’t done a bw benchpress yet, and I suck at pullups, so we’ll see how that goes. I am planning to surprise myself.
