It felt good to be back at the gym. It has been several weeks since I was able to go due to illnesses in the family. It was great to be back! I was named Athlete of the Month and several people congratulated me on that honor. The class was pretty full too.
We did a snatch warm up. And then got into a 10 minute EMOM with two snatches each minute working up to a challenging weight. I started with a 65lb Snatch and then went up to 70. I did it for a second round and then 75 for two rounds. Then up to 80. I failed at both attempts so I went back down to 75 and finished out the time with that. I think I failed at 2 other lifts in the remaining time. I asked Coach Jeff to watch me and he gave me some pointers which helped.
After the Snatches we had a shortish MetCon. 4 rounds for time of 15 swings and 15 burpees. I did the 35lb kettlebell and finished in just over 8 minutes. It was fairly consistent at 2 minutes per round. The burpees were definitely slow going!
