After driving the 1,400 mile round trip to Iowa and back this weekend I learned a few things; driving 12 hours through Nebraska and Iowa is awful and it is impossible to perform long Snatch sets in the humidity with your allergies going haywire.
We were scheduled for a hard session of biathlon training on Saturday but after grinding through the first few sets we called it a day and went in for mom’s cooking.
All in all it was a great road trip and chance to relax on the farm with the folks(Keri was a trooper and let me blast Mastadon for hours on end while I was driving). It was also a treat to help pour and label honey. Yeah, my folks are both retired now but decided to start an apiary and now harvest the sweetest honey I have ever tasted (did I mention I have the coolest parents ever?). Contact me if you are interested in purchasing premier all natural honey.
Today we need to put in the training that we slacked on at the farm.
Jerk- 2x28kg x 12, 2x24kg x 42, 2x20kg x 34, 2x20kg x 37
Snatch- 28kg x 9/9, 24kg x 28/28, 20kg x 48/48
Rack Hold- 2 x 28kg 2x 1min
Inverted Row- 2×7
