Went down to the garage to train on my lunch hour today, as I normally do. Today, it felt especially cold. I couldn't see my breath yet, but I don't think the temp was too far away. Kettlebell handle felt very cold during my snatches. I think I need to invent a kettlebell warmer. Or maybe just sit them on top of a stove before training.
On the docket was a planned 6 minute jerk set and an 8 minute snatch set. For some reason, thinking about 8 minutes of snatches still makes me a bit queasy. Not sure why...
Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 6 minutes @ 8 rpm
Snatch: 20kg - 8 minutes @ 12 rpm
Treadmill: 20 minutes walking
Jerks felt good. Snatches were ok, although my hands were fatiguing toward the end of each's turn. Hands are holding up very well. I started to a light run on the treadmill but my windpipe felt a bit raw, so I slowed it down. Overall, feeling pretty good today.
