Slept for about 7.5 hours Sunday night, woke up feeling fine, but not energetic. Sleep Cycle rated it at 84% sleep quality. I don't recall much else at the time of this writing, so this portion of the log is going to be short.
Thoughts on the workout:
If I had one word to describe the strength and metcon today, it would be brutal. Somehow I was the only person in the class who had done a 20 rep set of back squats before. I guess it'd been a while and we had a lot of folks who were relatively new compared to me. My previous best was 160lbs for 20 reps. Today I partnered up with my friend Josh and we both slammed out 165lbs for 20 reps (PR). It was way too low of a weight. If we didn't have to do the metcon right after that, I think we both would have liked to give it another shot at a higher weight. Will have to remember next time this comes up and aim for a higher weight. So... the metcon.... 10 minutes to try and get 100 backsquats at 75% of our 20 rep weight. Josh and I both went RX and went with 120lbs for the metcon. Oh, did I mention that every minute on the minute you had to do 5 burpees? Lets just say this got REAL TIRING, REAL QUICK. I was aiming to do 10 reps per minute. This glorious idea of mine lasted a whopping two rounds. My sets then quickly dropped off to ~4 reps per round. I ended up only getting 48 reps in total in the 10 rounds. If I had aimed to do 6 reps a round, I might have done better. Going for 10 a round was too much for me and my lack of endurance. Noted for next time.
