Thanks, Justin. I actually got 140........missed a line feed (gosh, when am I going to learn to type??).

I never thought I'd be in a position I could thrust more than I could clean....

I too can thruster more than I can clean. Clearly, both of us need to get better at our cleans.

45lb. PR? Sounds like someone's technique is starting to catch up with their strength... :) Good stuff, Steve! Glad to see you're doing so well after all your patience. :highfive:

Erin,

Thanks so much! I am ecstatic, to say the least. I figured it would come, but not all of a sudden and so quickly! Surprise, surprise......

I've been more interested in form and function and what I like, aside from all the fantastic info, suggestions, videos, etc, etc., is that one learns from their workouts exactly where they need to concentrate on making improvements or practicing. Before CF, I really had no idea (other than lifting heavier or doing more reps) how to go about it. Yeah, it's hard work, but I am having a BLAST!

[I][B]THURSDAY 090129

[/B]Woke up with a [B]really [/B]sore back - - don't know why, but WO plans for today obviously changed.....

[B]Warm-up:
Stationary Cycling [/B]10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.6 mi / HR 100
[B]CFWU X 3, [/B]minus GHD Situps and back extensions. Arm circles, shoulder dislocates, trunk rotations and body circles included. Still didn't help back.....

[B]WOD:
[/B]Had planned on "Elizabeth". Changed to.....
[B]Clean Practice Session.
PVC cleans - - [/B]Focused on hip drive and form
[B]Burgener Warm-up (PVC)
45# bar - - 15 X 1. [/B]Again, focus on form and hip drive. [B]5 X 3 [/B]interspersed through heavier lifts to "remind me" of form.
[B]95# X 5 X 5. [/B]Didn't use any higher weight so I'd concentrate on form. There were several times the bar just flew up and I got under it really easily.....
This was the best experience I've yet had with cleans. Gotta keep at it.

[B]2K Row.[/B] Concentrated on leg drive.
[B]First 500m @ 20 - 22 SPM. Avg 2:02 - 2:05 / 500m. Got 1:59 once!
Remaining 1500m, moderate row. Avg 26 SPM.
Time: 8:45.[/B] Average over 2K - - 2:11+ /500m.

Called it good for today. Kinda BLAH, but just had this feeling that if I'd pushed, I might have injured myself. :(
