Just like it sounds, we had a 3 Rep Max Power Clean, and I PRed it! I went back and tried to find more info on the last time I did Touch and Go cleans, 3 in a row, at this weight and I don’t know that I’ve done it before. So. PR for me! 155lbs.
The rest of the WOD was awful… double unders. But. I can do them, but I’m terrible at them. And the more tired I am, the harder they are for me.
This time though, you couldn’t just sissy out and do double singles, or even triple singles. Nope. You had to do burpees.. and you had to do a certain amount of burpees based on how long you had been doing CF. Me, being a seasoned veteran, had this ridiculously high amount of burpees to do, so I tried so hard to do my DUs.. I tried, and failed. Kept trying. I’m pretty sure I did some damage to my feet, but I kept going.
There’s absolutely no way I did the RX amount of DUs, but I tried. And that’s definitely one way to get us to do more of them! Nobody wants to do burpees…
As many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
5/10/15/20/25/30/35/40… Hang Power Clean (115#/75#)
30 Double Unders
I finished 6 + 6.
Even though it was a great power clean complex, the WOD really set me off and furthered my little downward spiral that you’ll read about next. Might I also add… that I had absolutely wrecked my traps from these last couple days.. Traps, neck, shoulders. This was kind of the beginning of the mess I was going through in my head. A defeating WOD, (double unders or burpees? Neither..) It just chipped away at my self esteem, and it was awful.
