Went in tonight for the 7 pm class at CFDV because the wod had snatches in it.
As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of
50ft Tire Drag
10 Strict Pullups
Men start at half body weight for the snatches and increase 10 pounds each round, at a minimum. Women also start at half body weight but only need to increase 5 pounds. Workout is scored by the number of rounds completed TIMES the overall increase in weight on the snatch. 25 Burpee penalty for failing to make the snatch.
I was feeling pretty good and was thinking I would PR on my 1 rep max during the wod. I started with 95 lbs (slightly more than half my body weight). When I got up to 125 at the end of the fourth round I failed the attempt. I attempted it 3 more times and failed each time. I decided to take the 25 burpee penalty rather waste any more time and try and get another round completed before time ran out. With 30 seconds left I attempted 125 two more times and failed on both. It was partially a mental block and mostly fatigue at that point. The strict pull ups were the hardest part of the wod, and really fried my arms. I ended up with a score of 80 (4 rounds x 20 lb total increase). Had I made the last snatch my score would've been 150 and it would also have been a 1 rm PR on my snatch.
Post-wod I slammed down a scoop of whey and water in the car, and followed that up with a Larabar. I stopped off at Trader Joe's on the way home to pick up a few gallons of whole milk in preparation for the start of my 30 days of GOMAD tomorrow. But of course Trader Joe's was out of the gallon-size organic whole milk. I settled for getting three half gallon cartons and a quart each of pumpkin and chocolate ice cream. Holy F'n S. The pumpkin ice cream is awesome. If you like pumpkin, get it. I got to work on the milk and polished off one of those half gallons in one sitting; which was no small feat. I plan on being gassy in about an hour.
