A Run WOD and presses

The WOD for this morning was row 500M and 25 knees to elbows for 4 rounds.  Since there were only 5 rowers and 8 of us, we split the group up so 4 people ran 400M instead of rowing.  I decided to run since I didn't run at all yesterday and it was about 42F this morning- perfect running weather! I wore gloves this time because I knew hanging on the bar for 25 knees to elbows was going to scrape away at my palms, still hurt my palms but it was okay.  I ended up finishing the WOD in 14:02.  I stayed afterward to do some strict military presses with a barbell 5-5-5-5-5, the weights for each round: 33-45-50-55-60 lbs.  I tried doing 65 lbs but failed! I will probably try again tomorrow to see if  I can do a strict press at 65 lbs.  Looking back at my excel file history, I did a similar workout up to 55 lbs and my one rep max was 60 lbs (Feb 2011) with a note that I tried 65 lbs and failed.  There has been some progress, I can do 5 reps at 60 lbs but need to figure out if I can do 65 lbs at least once.  The more I can do on the strict military press, the better my chances are for doing a dead hang pullup. I've got a long way to go!
