Rxing the WOD and some strength work

The warmup for today's WOD was taking just a barbell (I  used the 33 lb one) and going through push presses, front squats and then thrusters (combo of a front squat to push press).  My legs were feeling a little like jelly just using the bar and I was wondering if I could even do 55 lbs in the WOD.  I decided to give it a shot anyway and it turned out to be the right decision.
Monday's WOD:
Row 600M
Then 5 rounds of:
10 thrusters (55 lbs)
10 Bent over Row (55 lbs)
10 Split Squat (55 lbs, 5 each leg)
Row 600M again
I finished in 18:21. It was hard but I did it!  

Afterward, I worked on one portion of the MTB strength training program, now in my 9th week and a new set of exercises to try:
Deadlifts 3 sets of 8 reps 125 lbs
Floor presses 3 sets of 8 reps 75 lbs
The rest of the training will have to be after work.
