WOD 4th August Testing Thursday

Rain Rain go away,

Come again another Day, was what I was singing this morning as I woke up to deliver an early morning PT session with Lindsay.

From 7am it poured. Yuck.

It may have been raining but it was still humid and sticky.

Thursday is my usual testing day for my evening classes so after I finished with Lindsay I set up for a good old fashioned bit of hard work.

First on the agenda was a snatch test.

My old scoring on this pre-pregnancy and in the first few months was an impressive 200 snatches with a 12 and 16Kg

Today at just over 8 months pregnant I was struggling to get through the first 5 minutes. It didn’t feel nice and to be fair I nearly gave up!

I used a 12 Kg and slowly pushed through the barrier and scored 130, which I was reasonably happy with.

Next up a spot of Deadlifting.

Warming up with a few sets at light weight I worked up to 75Kg with my hilariously wide stance!

Now for the met con.

This was a 5 Rounder of

6 Push Jerks

8 Pull ups

12 Sumodeadlift High Pulls

I got through this in 11 minutes and 30 seconds! And used 25Kg.
