WOD 2 – in the afternoon… Squat Clean 3, 3, 3, 3, 3 10 front squats every 2 minutes on the minute @ 225#. Complete 5 rounds. 3 x 10 good mornings (135#) 3 x 12 strict toes to bar

WOD 3 – in the evening… 1000 yard swim for completion

Coming off the trip to Australia, I was itching to tackle some new programming. This is probably to blame for what turned out to be a little too much volume today. The morning and afternoon sessions went fine—very challenging especially on the squats, but still doable. But the early work took its toll by the time I got in the pool. My original plan was to swim 1 mile, but by the 700 yard mark my quads were starting to cramp up. Pushing off the wall was not happening without minor spasms so I decided to call it after 1000 yards. I’m happy with this considering the temperature outside was below 50 degrees… Woulda been pretty easy to pack it in and skip out on the swim. Anyways, looking forward to a big rest day and a trip to cryotherapy to help the body bounce back for open WOD 2 on Thursday.
