Deadlifts, Endurance, Torn Hands, Torn Shoes

Really simple (to understand) WOD today, but the execution was dicey.  I hadn’t expected to do the endurance WOD today, nor was a mentally prepared for sprinting in my VFFs.  I also underloaded my deadlifts, leaving me short of what I think my max should be (my last lift at 260# had a lot of room left).  Even with the underloading, my hands were pretty torn up, which means a few things, most importantly of which is, I need to lift heavy tings more often.Ripped Pam

Ripped VibramOn my second lap I stubbed my toe on a funky ripple of asphalt while sprinting in the parking lot, which isn’t normally a big deal, but I wasn’t strapped in tight to my VFFs and it resulted in me tearing a hole in the top of the big toe.

Thankfully I wasn’t actullay running barefoot, I’m certain I would have busted a toe.  As it is, I had to sit for a minute and reset my shoe and my brain, which put me behind the rest of the group by several important minutes.

All that bitching aside, I learned some important things today. 

  1. I think I need to rework my deadlift at a 325# max and set my next percentages from there.
  2. I need to use a LOT more chalk, my hands a pretty torn up
  3. I need to pay attention to my shoes and actually strap them down for running (DUH!)
