I think I must have pissed someone off in a prior life and now I am being forced to pay for it. OK, maybe I pissed off a few people in this life also. But I thought karma was much more retroactive?? Anyway, I ended up pulling a muscle in my upper back, right at the base of my neck, which ended my 5th (and planned last) set of snatches. This is the same muscle that I pulled a few months back. That time was due to over zealousness, today not so sure.
Anyway, this is what transpired up until the pull...
Warmed up with Super Joints Select.
2-Hand Swing: 16kg - 20, 24kg - 10
Windmill: 16kg - 3/3, 24kg - 1/1
Snatch: 16kg - 5/5
Snatch: 24kg - 5/5 on the Minute for 4 minutes
I had planned to perform Snatches for 5 minutes, followed by 1-Hand Swings for another 5 minutes. Didn't get to finish... =(
I was planning on seeing a massage therapist anyway. Now at least I can be sure to get my money's worth. (Is it just me, or does nobody else's blogger Spell Check work?)
