Cleans and Burpees

Sleep:  Better than the last several nights- 10:00- 7:30, woke up around 3 to go sleep with Stele but no more coughing- nap from 10:30am- noon with Stele :)

Food:  My stomach has been "angry" this entire week, meaning I have been getting nauseous after every meal so today I tried to keep it simple.  7:30a coffee with cream, 9:30 zone bar to quell the nausea, 11a, 1 hard boiled egg, 1 small apple, and a handful of almonds, 2p 3 eggs with sauteed apples and green beans and some nuts, 4p bowl of air popped popcorn with nutritional yeast, 5:00p med. dry cappuccino, 9p homemade chicken salad with cantaloupe and figs, 10p arctic zero ice cream.

So feeling sick this week and mostly training alone has really done a number on my ego- thankfully today I began to feel somewhat normal again and my performance shows as such.  The workout today was not a tester- finally- and it felt good to get back to somewhat "normal" training.  It looked like this:

4 sets @ 100%:
3 tough squat clean

10 burpees AFAP
rest 2:00 b/t sets

Quick singles looked like this: 
95# :50, 105# :45, 115 :50, 120 x 1 (F on 2 and 3 so jumped ship and went for the burpees)
For whatever reason (fatigue :) I only did 9 Burpees on round three... 


4 sets @ 100%:
Row 30 sec max effort
rest 2 min b/t efforts

142m, 145m, 141m, 141m

Interestingly enough the row wasn't nearly as bad as I expected it to be- probably because it was only 4 rounds.  Here is another side by side video for perspective!

Here is a series of pwr /cleans at 115# from 1 month ago- not nearly as pretty!
