    Wednesday, 5/8/2019 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - plyos, KB warmup

    Strength - Deadlift - 135/5, 185/3, 225/2, 275/2, 295/2, 320/2
    //Went up really, really slow, but it went up. So I'm not quite back at square one, but not too far off. My first CF workout (and first time deadlifting) 7 years ago I maxed out at 285 for a single.

    Conditioning - EMOM 12
    1 - 15 KB goblet squats 53#
    2 - 12 cal assault bike
    3 - 6 DB push press per arm 40#
    //Scaled down from the prescribed weights but still almost died.

    I figured some goals I have for next winter/spring season. Partly extra motivation on the comeback trail here, partly to guide my training over the next year. I don't know why I'm doing this to myself but I'd like to get some of my middle distance chops back. So, in that vein, my goals for next year (hopefully Spring Masters Nationals?) are sub-2:00 200 fly and sub-2:10 200 breast. Two more barriers I never really had a chance to break in college. We'll see how it goes.
