The long metcon that wasn't.

I am following CFSB and today should have been my long metcon day. However, I woke up still sore from Fridays DL and row. WTF??

I also did not get enough sleep, woke up late, had to take my 5 yr old with me....blah, blah, blah.

I could have just stayed home and rested but I really wanted to practice my snatch form. After watching a zillion videos yesterday I was pretty stoked to give it a try. At least with the PVC.

So....I got my tired ass outta the house, dragging a 5 yr old (and a bag of Transformers) with me.

I shortened the metcon I was going to do, so as not to kill my already sore back.

50 Squats
40 sit ups
30 (25#) KBS
20 burpees
10 push ups
Time 7:19

I was definitely dragging and my time reflects that. But...I did play around with the snatch, which was the fun part. I used the PVC for a while until I felt pretty good. Then I grabbed an 18# bar and did several with it. I am quite happy with my performance. Looking forward to trying it with some real weight.
