Event #1: 1RM Back Squat
Event #2: Triple Jump (3 attempts)
Event #3: 2500m Row
Event #4: 10 Rounds for time: 10 Burpees + 10 COVP Pullups
Notes: Got about 4 hours sleep last night. I think that was a PR before a competition (I have pre-competition anxiety that prevents me from sleeping...at all). Felt good this morning. In good spirits and ready to compete. Back squats felt pretty good, no problems there. Still had some trouble with the triple jump, no worries there. For the row, I wanted to go negative splits from one 500m to the next. I was successful (see picture). Felt good and paced very well. Walked away with just enough hurt and burning in the quads. Last workout, I tried to hold a high pace throughout and not waste time on transitions. Wore my gymnastics grips, but took them off half way through since they were more a nuisance than an aide. I think doing kipping pullups (rather than butterfly) have less friction on the hands.
All in all I am pleased with my performance today, and I have a renewed sense of confidence in my game. Over the past few weeks there have been some ups and downs, but all that matters is how you perform on game day.
