50 du (150 singles)
30 hollow body rocks (I admit it, I only did 20)
30 squat clean and jerk (155/105) - I went super light at 55.
I am glad, once again, that I went light. It enabled me to really work on my form today. Which I obviously needed, since I kept almost falling over when I went into my squat (elbows UP!!). And somehow, even though they are so similar, these were way easier than thrusters. I don't understand why thrusters suck the life out of me, but these I could do. I finished in 8:08, right in the middle of the group. I taped the crap out of my wrist today, too, because the strain on the wrist is making the lateral epicondylitis worse ( I REFUSE to say I have tennis elbow, dammit). I'm worried because we're doing CrossFit totals tomorrow and Monday, and my arm just isn't up to snuff. I'm especially worried about the deadlift. My muscle ALREADY feels like it is separating from the bone, and to push my max deadlift... you know I'll do it anyways. I'm hoping for 185. Or at least 175 (just over my weight). I'd like to be able to say I can deadlift my own weight.
In other news, I was practicing dead hang pullups on the red band today. And kipping on the purple. That stupid purple band doesn't really take much weight, so (and I agree with Clint and Jess here) I SHOULD be able to do a kipping completely without bands. I'll keep trying, but I have some sort of mental block. I move differently with the band, too, and I need to really pay attention to how I move when I'm using the band so I can replicate that movement without. Tomorrow...
Today I had to take 2 Ativan. And while it made me feel a little bit better, I still didn't get much done. And we have quiz on EKGs tomorrow (I'm TOAST) and a quiz on OPP (watched the lecture, but still can't make myself care about what Kania says). Just have to survive the morning. All afternoon WILL be spent with that EKG book. I'm not feeling any effects from lowering my antidepressant dose yet. I have three more days of the half dose before I switch to the new drug. And honestly, I am a little worried about the serotonin syndrome. Just my luck to get it.
I'm really annoyed that I couldn't get the VA doctors to take better care of me through this. But thank god I go to a school full of people who can help.
Endorphin high is still going right now - it has been nearly 2 hours. Maybe the Ativan is helping, too. But I feel okay. Or maybe it is the socks. I wore the badass ones today.
