First some thoughts for today.
"There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. As well speak of a female liver."
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
OK, just one more quote. It's my favorite and I stand behind it everyday.
"I am a woman above everything else."
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Ok, it's the third time I've done this WOD this week. Today I got my best time, 3:34! Now I'll give it a rest for a bit and see if I can get 3 or under.
Diane got 4:50.
Then we did some KB swings person one for 1 min then person 2 for a min 3 rounds followed by a cool down round of 30 seconds. I kept my numbers in the 40's.
Yesterday with Jerry at Crossfit Challenge
Hang cleans I worked my way up to 110 I think? Gotta get under that bar faster. Jerry says I've got the power and I'm getting it up to my chest now I just have to get under it.
The we did 6 rounds for time of
5 deadlifts at 135#
5 presses at 45#
I should have gone a bit heavier on the press but was unsure what my shoulder would feel like.
I think we both finished in the 5 min area. I have to ask him for the time. I dug this workout. Fast, heavy and power centered!

Squat clean aka Full Clean aka Clean = start from the floor, catch in a full squat.
Hang clean = start from the hang position (above or below the knees), catch in the full squat position.
Power clean = start from the floor, catch in a quarter or half squat position aka the power position.
Hang power clean = start from the hang position above or below the knees, catch in the quarter or half squat.
"Hang" describes where you start.
"Power" describes where you catch.
I have to say this is one of my fav's. I like to do cleans with KB's and Barbells more than I like doing them with DB's.
