Sunday I did a scaled “Randy” – 75 snatches for time at only 30 lbs – as one of the benchmarks for the Lurong Paleo Challenge. Yesterday I did it Rx (55 lbs) in 8:59.
In the evening I tried a muscle-up and got closer than ever. I got my elbows vertically above the rings and had time to struggle. But rather than staying calm and trying to kip out of the dip, I was so astonished to have been able to push my head and shoulder forward as I’m supposed to that I kicked my feet unproductively and could not get up. I was like, “Oh my God. I’m here. I’m here. Wait, I wonder if I can get up now?” Hopefully next time I won’t be so surprised and will be ready to PUSH!
