YEAH BUDDY. Who knew? I killed it.
Split Jerk PR.. the last time I PRed a jerk was 175lbs during my 1RM clean and jerk, and 1RM snatch back in October.
Today our coach Nate had posted a picture of Gina, who’s super awesome, split jerking 190. Gina is someone I’d pay good money to be as strong as or as awesome as!! I knew when I saw that picture, that I had to at least go in and try for 185!
So it was all like OMG FINE I’LL GO. And I went. And I got 185, and didn’t want to stop there! I added 10lbs on, and missed. I didn’t get under it enough on my split. Nate and Tom got all feisty and coachy on me and I said FINE I’ll do it again, but you have to clean the bar up for me. 😀 So they did..
And.. I was all amped up, all excited, ready to do this!! Did a few practice jerks with lighter weight to make sure my split jerk was good.. AND THEN I DID 195! I even stood there for a few extra seconds with the bar outstretched over my head, for good measure. And yelled with excitement, of course! I dropped the bar, and happily turned around to share my excitement with my coaches, AND THEY WEREN’T EVEN WATCHING. omg..
Fortunately, another girl, Brittany, was on her way outside and saw me drop the bar down after having it completely extended overhead. I told Tom I’d do it again but he’d have to clean the bar up for me, and he said no.. no.. Brittany’s and your word is good enough. 🙂
Pretty freaking awesome!!! I can hoist almost 200lbs over my head. That’s just RIDICULOUSNESS.
The rest of the WOD! Oh yeah.
1 min ME 200m run (I did 10 cal airdyne)
1 min ME push press (115#/75#) (Nate had me do 95lbs instead!)
1 min ME toes to bar
1 min rest
Score was total push press and total T2B, (two separate scores)
I ended up doing 43 and 27. Pretty awesome considering I was using a higher weight than the other girls! Good stuff.
5 mins of evil wheels
What fun. I did 30 evil wheels in just over 5 minutes.
