Got a little bit of sleep last night but nothing too deep. Was in bed for about 9 hours. Felt groggy waking up and wanted to go back to bed. Lied around the house for a few hours and then went over to check in at the venue, only 15 minutes from my house.
Warmed up with some jump roping and then some dynamic stretching. It didn't take very long to get loosened up which was a good sign. Went into barbell warm-up and built up to a heavy 3 push jerk preceded by 5 burpees AFAP. For the the workout, I planned on hitting about three rounds. Rope climbs were good and push jerks were unbroken. The workout came down to muscle ups which I was very happy with since this was a goat for me not too long ago. Pacing was good on this workout and I felt good afterward, though my chest was a bit smoked.
Warming up for the second workout on 1 hour later, I felt like death. I had nothing left in me. I think this was a combo of both lack of sleep, the workout being at 6:30pm, and the workout prior being pretty high power output. Rather than make excuses (everyone else has to deal with it too), I warmed up and got ready. Warm-up didn't take long as I had just worked out. Right from the get-go on this workout I had no push (similar to how I felt two weeks earlier on a Saturday workout). I decided to just keep it at 85% and cruise through this workout as I knew I couldn't make any moves.
Happy with the first workout and a little disappointed with how I felt during the second workout. Two more workouts on Sunday, which should be more up my alley.
