The Yoke. My eternal nemesis. I swear, every time I start getting stronger and faster at this thing and think I’m ready for a heavy PR, I get reminded that >750 lbs is still really damn heavy. 780 today felt godawful, and I kept trying to accelerate with no dice. That said, I don’t think I’ve walked more than 800 for any considerable distance, so the fact that I was pissed about being slow today is probably a good sign. The heat was definitely a factor too, and trying to do medleys when it’s hot is turrible. All in all, a solid workout though, and I’m looking forward to the next week of training. Here’s what went down
600×50′ (under 10 s for this run, much improved)
Sandbag/Keg Medley (80′ course, max runs in 10 mins this date)
125 SB/230 Keg 4 runs of 80′ each. Death.
Would have liked to get in my speed stones today, but my low back is just not feeling fantastic and I’m not willing to put myself in the hole right now for a few light stone reps. Back stronger next week for sure.
