Deadlift Disaster

Went to the 7:30PM class with Niko.

It was 5-5-5-5-5 at increasing weight.  Clean pulls.  I ended up doing 95, 115, 135, 145, 165.  The heavier it got, the better I got at pulling fast at the top of the knee.

Then there was a metcon set:

1min to complete
10 Deadlift – you pick the weight
10 box jumps
rest 1min

I made the mistake of looking at the board of what the other women did and went out way too ambitious at 155#.  Sets 1-5 were fine, they got heavy, but I managed to get through them.  Then in set 6, my back cramped up and I couldn’t string two together.  I had to stop in the middle of the set and take 10 pounds off and I still couldn’t do it.  I was a hot mess.  Then for set 7, I managed (barely) to string all the deadlifts together at 145.  Set 8, I had to break them up into 5, 3, 2 and wasn’t able to finish my step-ups.  (I did the first set as box jumps, but the impact on my ankle wasn’t so nice…)

Overall, the workout was a disaster.  Luckily, Ben was the coach last night and he gave me some good stretches so I’m not as sore as I thought I was this morning.  I’ve not been sleeping well, so I didn’t go to class this morning.  Not really an excuse, that’s just what it is.
