This was awesome, I got a chance to go to Eltsu for training in the afternoon after work. Started off with handstand walk skills. Main wod was a running metcon, added with clean & jerks and double unders. This seemed like a good way to get my lungs to work. I'm stilling missing heavy squats but I'll wait couple of days before jumping into those. It was spectacular to hit a tougher metcon indeed. Couple of minutes after the workout I realized a potential for hill sprints.
|It's getting warm in here!|
These sets were pretty much the longest I've had so I would dare to call this a PR. Haven't measured them so precisely but 10m is close to the best I've done. Gotta practice more this summer to master this skill better. Both handstand walk and still handstand position.
Metcon. Time 15.19
- 5 rounds of:
- 5 clean & jerk, 60kg
- 30 double unders
- 330m run
I went unbroken with the clean & jerks. It was a bit shaky on some round with my feet work. I thought it might have been because of my shoes. I've used to lift in weightlifting shoes but these Reebok Nano's are pretty good in anything I do with them. Lift, run, jump, burpees, you name it. They were worth the money.
- Sprints uphill, 10x70m
- Recovery, walk back down, then sprint right away
It was great to run today. As I wrote, I felt fast and efficient on the metcon and on the sprints. And the main wod was something my soul needed. The fast heart beat was something I live for.
