I'm not sore!


 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 1 1/2 bodyweight

Bench Press: Bodyweight

Clean: 3/4 Bodyweight

The evening classes were hectic last night with a shortage of barbells and benches, so I opted for a modified Linda so I wouldn't have to be waiting around for an hour. Mine looked more like this:

 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 110#s 

Shoulder Press: 35#s 

Dumbbell Cleans: 15#s

For some reason 110# felt really heavy. It's weird how like last week, I easily busted out 10 reps of 135# and it felt good, and then this week, 110# is just killing me. The shoulder press was unpleasant. I had muscle failure at rounds 7, 6, and 5. The dumbbell cleans were good. I felt myself getting under the DBs quickly and "conserving" energy. I don't have bruises on my shoulders today, so I def. had control of the weights. 

I know this isn't exactly the same Linda I did in February but I did manage to shave off more than 7 minutes from my old time. 

I hope to do Linda as outlined soon so I can see if I really did make some gains. 

This entire week, my left shoulder felt inflamed and I was concerned I had reinjured it or aggravated it  with the wall balls or thrusters this week, but I'm pleased to awaken this morning and find it completely pain free without a trace of soreness. On Wednesday, Rader and I did the shoulder mobility WOD post thruster WOD, which I think may have led it to being sore all day yesterday. No clicking, no range of motion limitations. I'm glad. 

On a side note, after completing Linda, I collapsed to the ground and smacked my right arm against the concrete and created 2 visible stress cracks in my jade bangle. When I got home it split into 2 pieces. I'm really sad. It was gifted to me by my mother and is a token of good fortune to the recipient. She gave it to me over 7 years ago and I have worn it every single day since, maybe taking it off a total of 4 times. It is a rare form of jade from Burma. I will see if I can glue back together :(
