Said I wouldn't do it... but did. I redid 17.1. Didn't want to wonder if I could have pushed harder. The results were similar so I was disappointed in that but happy to know, considering my limitations, I did the best I could do. Never did get the "metabolic conditioning" workout it was supposed to be. Had to time out 15-20 secs of trigger point release after sets of 15 snatch reps in the 30s, 10 in the 40s, and 5 in the 50s. Lost several minutes due to that... Jumping on the box also sent pain shooting up/down my left side. It was pretty horrible during the workout but taking the time out to do trigger point release helped lessen the pain afterward. That's a win. I'm not putting my body into distress like I did last year. Last Open ended in a 3 month squat ban and daily pain for much of that time. You can't ace every one. Heck, I might not ace any of them but I'll do my gosh darn best. 😜 #17point1#saidiwouldnot#butidid#iredidit#iknowididmybest#rpmassingladies#womenofcrossfit#girlsgonestrong#girlswholift#girlswholiftheavy#dowhatyoucan#pushyourself#putinthework#pushyourlimits#fitfam#fitlife
The silver lining... you have to find it! Here's to stronger legs, a new weight class and a healed elbow! #Reposting @jillyjaworske with @instarepost_app -- I took a little break from posting this past week to focus on hosting @tssbarbell's first ever meet and @juggernauttraining Camp: Not only did I have the chance to witness @alyssaritchey1 's double body weight clean and jerk, but I trained alongside my friends and teammates and learned lots from my coach @max_aita. During my appointment with @quinn.henochdpt @clinicalathlete this week, we came to the conclusion that my elbow is not quite ready for maximal effort snatch and clean and jerk for at least another month. I would be lying if I said I wasn't frustrated with the injury, but instead of getting emotional, I am creating a plan (with the help of my team, @max_aita and @kris10pope) to continue to drop weight and build my leg strength until @quinn.henochdpt clears me. Here's to getting a big ol' back squat this year and getting this elbow to heal! Shown today is a new 5RM front squat PR at 105kg. 🤗
