Thursday WOD: 100 thrusters!

The Thursday WOD was a little bit intimidating, any time there is a "100" in a workout, you know you have to have be mentally strong to get there:

Every minute on the minute 3 burpees.
Complete the minute with Thrusters 75/55 (I did 45 lbs, 55 lbs just seemed out of reach to obtain 100 reps)
Go until you hit 100 Thrusters (a front squat that goes directly into a push press)

I finished in 10:35. My first minute I did 20 thrusters and then I averaged 6-10 and in the last 3 rounds I did 6 reps.  My arms/shoulders were toast by the end but I rested for 5 minutes and did some deadlifts (something I need to do more often to strengthen my lower back):
3x10 deadlifts at 95, 105, and 115 lbs
After the 100 thrusters, each of these deadlift rounds felt like work but not to the point I was struggling to complete the 10 reps.
