Open Wod #3

Open Wod #3:
18min AMRAP:
15 Box Jumps (24")
12 Push Press (115lbs.)
9 Toes to Bar
Result: 11 Rounds + 15 Box Jumps + 12 Push Press + 9 Toes to Bar

Notes:  I went to sleep at around 9:45 last night.  I couldn't get to sleep so I took two melatonin at around 10:30 (thinking that taking it earlier would prevent the grogginess that I usually get).  I lay there drifitng in and out of semi-unconciousness until 3:30am.  I think I fell asleep for an hour or two at 5am and woke at 6:45am.  All in all probably 3 hours of sleep last night.  

I awoke and knowing that I was going to hit this workout early decided to keep the nutrition rather light as to not have anything in my gut.  I ate an apple and had some water and that was all.  

Warmed up with some mix modals in a 5min AMRAP @ 85% (15 Wall Balls, 10 KB Swings, 20 Walking Lunges) then I got into some ankle and hip mobility before practicing the movements for the workout.  

Thoughts for the workout were to go at 85% for as long as I could, then drop the hammer at the end.  Felt very good for the most part, biding my time and not pushing it too early.  Went unbroken on all box jump and toes to bar throughout the workout.  I broke the push press into two sets after the third set.  Think I might have been able to take a little less rest between movements, but that could have effected the work sets.  All in all I was pleased with today's effort.  I needed a good workout, and this was it.
