Day 17 Results

Day 17 - Tues, Jan 19, 2010
Well, today was a much better day. I was in great spirits. I did 1/2 of the challenge before spin class.
Snatches: I started with snatches. I did 15 snatches/side with the 16kg (5/side), 20kg (8/side), and 24kg (only 2/side). I was feeling really strong, so I went for it. Boy did the snatches feel GREAT with heavier weight. I still had to tape my hands and go slowly, but I did it!
Swings: I did 100 swings with the 24kg. They're starting to feel easy (two-handed at least). I'll start doing more 1H swings in a few days.

I'll finish the challenge up after class. I had a chance to ride tonight in spin class, and it felt great! We rode hard and anerobically for portions of class. I'm starving now, so I'll eat and then try to finish up my challenge before bed.

How was day 17 for you? I realize that I took an entire week off from the challenge, but I do plan to extend the challenge by 1 week to make up for the time. My new end date will be Sat, Feb 6 instead of Sat, Jan 30. Life happens, but I'm strong and resolve to reach the finish line!
