It's been 3 weeks since I've snatched a kettlebell. WTH? Brad had me swinging only to build up my EDT. This week I get to snatch one day. Today was the day. Here's how it went:
EDT - 15 minutes
1. Snatch left - 16 kg (35 lbs)
2. Snatch right - 16 kg
I did sets of 10 each arm and ended up with a measly 180 snatches (90 each arm). I think I did 130 in the first 10 minutes and then needed more time to recoup between the last sets.
I really hope those numbers improve next week! I have nowhere to go but up! Does anyone know how many I would need to do for the 10 minute SSST?
After the EDT, I did my GTG for pistols and pushups. I felt weak on the pushups. I was supposed to do another round of EDT consisting of double bent rows and burpees, but I was shot from the snatches and GTG. Plus, I had to shoot a round of golf. I hate it when I don't finish my training!!
After golfing, I did take the dog for a walk. I ended up running for about 10 minutes to make up for the missed EDT. I hadn't run in about 7 months. It felt pretty good. Not good enough to start doing it regularly though, LOL!!! My feet aren't ready for that. They are getting better every week. That reminds me; I need to do my Z drills yet. Oooops!
Hey, check out Brad Nelson's latest blog. He gives the "Duct Tape" speech. You know, the one that got me off my bad-eating ass and on the healthy eating highway. Good stuff there, especially if you need a kick in the pants.
