Wednesday WOD

Today's WOD was pretty tough and a good metric for where I am in terms of both strength/endurance in a crossfit workout, when I first looked at the board, I thought, that's easy, I can do 5 reps@75 lbs for each exercise and then it registered that it was 2 rounds of that repeated 3 times!  Yeah, I was not ready for that @75 lbs so I dropped it down to 63 lbs and found this challenging once I did the push press:
Bear complex:
5 power cleans
5 front squats
5 push press (or jerks)
5 back squats
2 rounds of the Bear complex then run 400M
Repeat for 3 rounds total
My time was 17:18
Karen finished at 14:22 and I was just getting started on my run, so it took me 3 minutes to finish my 400M which is a walking pace- my legs felt like molasses after the bear complex, it was tough to even pretend to run. 

I rested for five minutes and then worked on my military press:
5 reps@ 55 lbs
3 reps@ 60 lbs
3 reps@ 70 lbs
The presses were a challenge. According to my Wendler worksheet, I should have been able to do more reps at 70 lbs so I'm going to try this again when I'm fully rested later this week.
