I REALLY need to set up a video camera in my bedroom. It's not what you think... ;) This is happening way too often now. Last night I specifically made sure that the alarm was set and that the volume was turned up for this morning. Earlier I woke up on my own at 5:40am. The alarm had been set for 5:00. As I looked at the clock, the alarm was turned off. I must be sleep shutting off during the night. This is crazy. I know my solution is to move the alarm away from the bed, but somehow that seems like self-induced torture. Oh well, I still got in my workout this morning.
I took yesterday off as I could really feel the impact of switching over to the 16kg. And bad me, I didn't drop back on my time. Neither today. I kept on with the 4 minute sets but slowed my pace. And I am proud to say that I was not chasing reps. I found a nice tempo that would allow me to get through the 4 minutes and tried to keep that pace. Here's what today looked like...
Warmup: Z-Health R-Phase - thoracic, shoulders and neck
1-Arm Jerk: 16kg - 4 minutes (20L/20R)
Snatch: 16kg - 4 minutes (16L/16R)
1-Arm Long Cycle: 16kg - 4 minutes (12L/12R)
I will have to wait to see how I feel tomorrow. I may drop back down to the 2 minute sets if this proves to be too big a jump for me at this point. Only time will tell. Jerk 'em high y'all.
