Saturday Morning

Saturday morning after trying 16.3 felt kinda good, Saturday afternoon didn’t… Haha, after my coffee I wanted to leave the house for my afternoon session but on the way down, I made a u turn and went back to the apartment. I was so tired, sore and unmotivated that it made no sense at all to go back to training and practice bar muscle ups and do some extra work. So I decided to do my grocery shopping instead and stay in bed for another hour… 🙂 Best idea ever…

9/10/15 – Berlin Throwdown

Today I taught the kids and decided just to do the wod because the week was stressful and full of work.
We did the 2nd qualifying wod for the Berlin Throwdown – a little competition one of our coaches came up with a couple weeks ago. It is a nice idea to bring the Berlin community together and let them compete against each other. There are 9 RX and 9 fun (scaled) teams (one female, one male) who will compete against each other in our box on November 28th. Every box can send one team per division. The teams must do the qualifying wods if they wanna take part. We – the Friday Classes just did for fun as part of the regular wod. I did it with another girl and it was really cool. I did all PS unbroken and also the Double Unders, this was a bit exhausting because you get tired but you still can do it – just don’t stop… The second gives you a bit more rest time but also increasing reps… But still I liked them!!!

15.1 15.1a – In the box

I went to the box in the early afternoon to do the wods. My hands still weren’t the best but I thought if I totally screw it up I can repeat it on Monday…
Me and another girl did it together. The last times I had so much trouble with the jerk, we haven’t done it for a while and I am so scared of getting under the bar. The day before I could not even lift 55kg which is stupid because my one rep max push press is 52.5kg… :/

15.1 felt okay, I finished 5 rounds= 150 reps which is okay. I had a couple of no reps during Toes2Bar, if I would repeat I should focus on them more and find a better paste in the last rounds. I also should go back to the snatches a bit earlier, not taking to long of a break in between them.

My clean and jerk was okay. I started 50kg easily, 55kg still felt fine. I went up to 60 kg and got it. I tried 62.5 kg and the bar got heavy. I hit the clean but not the jerk. I tried again and made it… BUT I did not go under the bar because of my fear, this is so shitty, it would be so much more easier if I would just try it. I feel I have the strengths but I only did a little step and bent my back instead of going down…, definitely more dangerous… Mmh…, so I think I won’t be much better in 15.1a if I repeat. 15.1 could be a bit faster but probably only a couple of reps. So, it is not worth repeating it I guess, because doing the Open in Europe is more fun than real competition anyways in comparing to all the crazy strong athletes…
