Today was not my best day… I’m feeling pretty tired and thought about resting, but still went for it. A. Front Squat: I’ve been working based on 200#, but actually had no idea what my 1 RM was. I kept up with the percentages pretty well throughout the cycle, but today’s best was 190#. I failed 200# twice. B. 18.5 It’s my first time doing CTB since last March because of quarantine and low ceiling set up in my basement gym.

If progress were linear I think we’d all be testing world records by now. U went for it today and won a mental battle regardless. And don’t discount the effects of Monday’s OHS plus yday’s box step overs. Keep battling and inspiring!

Thank you for your perspective! I needed to be reminded of that. Sometimes I’m my own worst critic. I’ve been working hard and have to realize that small progress and gains in consistency and fitness are worthy of celebration.

Warmup done ✅
Clusters @55kg to try and make part B feel easier!

A. Work up to 1RM FS
Up to 135kg (new PB by 5)

B. AMRAP 7 mins ‘Open event’
122 (18 thrusters + 14 chest to bar)

PB by 21 reps compared to 2/9. Did a much better job of pacing myself this time, I remember blowing up hard last time, slow but steady!! So badly wanted to complete round 18 but just short!
