Last night, I got a great night’s sleep. The cool air, I’m sure, was the biggest factor in that. Nights where it really cools off always lead to my best sleep,
I woke up early and drank my coffee pretty quickly. While I was doing that, I was relaxing and browsing the web a little. I was pretty eager to get out in to the garage and get a WOD in before we did anything else.
My first order of thing on the agenda today though was to at least give my deadlifts a try. I knew the AMRAP set at three hundred and ten pounds was a weight that I might make on a great day, but probably not on a bad day. With my knee acting up, I had no expectations at all. I thought that there was at least a decent chance that I’d abort during the lighter sets while warming up.
The lighter sets all felt great, and I was having a good time while I worked up in the weights. The heavy set was a no-go from the start. I felt it load my knee a bit, so I stopped right on the spot. There’s always a next time.

There’s always a next time. It’s not a disappointment for met at all. It went basically how I expected it to go.
I put everything away and then got the dumbell out that I wanted to use for the WOD. Today I chose to use the air runner to run on and actually felt pretty good with it. I was out the gate too hot the first two hundred meters but I still need to learn to pace on it. I felt pretty good with it regardless.
The alternating presses were nice and fast for me today, but I only used the light twenty-five pound dumbbells for them. Same with the power cleans. They were fast and light. My main goal on this particular WOD was to get some practice in with running on the air runner. It’s been quite a while since I used that. It’s frustrating that I can’t see the screen on it, and even more frustrating that the app is yet another one with absolutely microscopic text. Molly was home so she could watch my distance.
Given that Molly was home and the fact that it was a cool and very dry morning I just had to do the WOD in my cheetah thing with my running sucks shirt on. I don’t I’ll get another chance to fuck with her and wear that again before the since it’ll be too hot.
Later on in the morning, we did some running around to get some dirt to add to the raised beds in the garden and spent some time outside finishing pulling the weeds and adding dirt. We planted the couple of plants that we got at Hostetters.
By the time we were done I was really looking forward to Joy’s tonight. My neck got a little bit of sunburn too!
Music for the WOD was Alice In Chains.
