Training: 4/22/2012

2000m Row
20 Hang Cleans (225)
Time: 16:33 (only completed 17reps)

Notes: Third day of training in a row.  Body is definitely feeling it from the last couple of days of heavy posterior chain work.  Back was very tight and sore getting out of bed.  Had a small meal after I woke up and then headed over to the gym.  Warmed up with a 1k row (intervals included) lower back mobility and then built up to a heavy double hang clean.  Planned on pacing the row at an avg. of 1:52.  First half was done in 3:40 and second half in 3:58, picking up cadence and easing off the throttle over the last 30 seconds so I could get right off the rower and get to work.  I decided to wear a belt for the hang cleans since it was already fatigued.  Weight felt very heavy today.  Last couple of days have really added up.  Hit hang cleans for singles for the most part, stringing together a few doubles.  Missed a bunch of reps as I was either catching it forward, or unable to stand up out of the hole.  Legs are just beat.  This does not bode well for my confidence in this event.  No matter, I will be recovered on Friday.

Unfortunately, after I was done I realized I tweaked my right knee.  Medial side feels like a joint thing with plenty of popcorn like clicking.  Going to rest and ice this afternoon see if it's any better tomorrow.
