AMRAP 7 minutes of:
5 Thrusters (95#/65#)
10 Kettlebell swings 
Rest 4 minutes and then perform your score (rounds and reps) for time.  Goal is sub 7 minutes.

What a doozy! I knew when I read this last night that it was going to put me down like tranq'd out show elephant in the circus (where do I come up with this shit?). 

I'll save the nitty gritty details and go for the final conclusion: I should have listened to my back. The 2nd round of work is when I felt not so hot at the bottom of my thruster (squat) and at the top of my thruster (hyper-extension of my back). Wanting to beat my 7 mins time, my form went to shit. I should have tapped out like I did on Saturday. 

I iced. Rolled. Stretched. Iced again. 

Brushing my teeth at the sink was uncomfortable again. 


I hoped I'm not fucked. 

PS- Post WOD recovery (not the shake) took about 2 hours to feel alright again.
