I should have listened to my body

Hang power snatch 3-3-3-3-3 reps

I awoke feeling tight in my upper body, but not sore. I felt doing HPS wasn't going to be a big deal. I looked up my 1RM and saw that it was 50#s. Came in, did the Burgener Warm-up and started to feel really sore in the shoulders. I attempted 40#s as my first set and I couldn't get under the bar and lock out my arms. They felt like jello; I was pretty much just pressing the bar to complete the movement. 

I decided to go down in weight and stay there and work on my technique. Well by my 3rd set at 35#s, I could barely jump/shrug the weight. I was just "gassed." My arms would not work. I got on the rings and did several skin the cats to get my shoulders warmer. I went to pick up the bar and I had no strength in my left. 

My entire upper body went to jello. 

Another downer to the day is that my hands are completely raw and very sensitive to the touch. Holding my steering wheeling while driving is painful. This makes me upset cause I purposefully took tomorrow night off to attend the Oly Lifting Class at 6:30pm. I should have taken the day off, let my body and hands heal so that I can do my best on technique tomorrow without being hindered. 

I came home today from the box, feeling very sleepy, which is a sign to me that I need sleep/rest to heal. I got 8 hours last night, too. 

Oy. I do too much too soon, too fast. Here are the consequences and now I'm being a whiney little bitch about it. Ugh.
