OHS 1-11-09

Warmup:  21 Hanging Straight leg raises (waist high), 15 Dips, some air squats

Overhead Squats

45 x 5
65 x 5
95 x 5
115 x 5
135 x 4 (PR)  Failed on 5th rep - Dropped on the way up
145 x 1
155 x 1
165 x 1 (PR)
170 x 1 - Josh called the depth as parallel
170 x 1 - Failed - Dropped on the way up

Annoying to get called on depth on the first 170 attempt.  I felt pretty solid on it and could have gone deeper.  Coulda, shoulda, woulda.  Oh well.  Next time I'll have it and maybe 175.  Creeping up on my goal of bodyweight x 1 (180lb)!!

500m Row - 1:42  I was shooting for 1:32 to hit my goal.  I went out hard, holding the pace at the 1:32/33 range.  With about 175-200m to go I had slowed down a lot and had a major character failure.... I knew I wasn't going to hit 1:32 and was on track for 1:35-1:37 range.  Josh and Alex started yelling at me so I finished up sheepishly.  Truly pathetic.  Once again underestimated how difficult a 1:32 row would be for me, especially since I haven't been rowing much at all.  I think next time I should set the pace boat at 1:35, try and hold it there and kick it hard at the end to try and sneak in under 1:35.
