WOD#7 and #8 (no run)

After freezing cold yesterday, today warmed up to almost 50 degrees. But I didnt go for run today as I decided to do two light WODs in row. WOD#7 was a clean and jerk using dumbbell. I had to use just 2x25=50 pounds but I worked on form a bit given that this is the first time I had done clean and jerk. It felt easy but the HR remained elevated at 150bpm most of the time. Also with right hand being the stronger hand, the imbalance in strength caused issues doing jerks using dumbbell instead of barbell. I may need to get a barbell set.

Then I did a moderated version of Annie (situp+doubleunderx50-40-30-20-10). I basically did full situps 25-20-15-10-5 with correct form and high jumps 50-40-30-20-10. High jumps were too easy but I dont have space or tools to do doubleunder. Sittups were hard, especially while keeping good form. It became harder to get jerk momentum past 10+sit ups. But 75 situps with few breaks isnt too shabby. With two WODs, I am back on track. Tomorrow also happens to be a rest day so perhaps I can squeeze in a run. Still got 4miler race this Saturday.
