A Hero WOD

I am finding that the extra heavy humidity and tough workouts from last week have left me feeling a little run down.  So I took two days off (Monday and Tuesday) hoping that would help me recover.  I wasn't feeling so recovered when I went to Forged Fitness this morning but it turned out to be a good thing to go because I'm feeling bouncy now.  The WOD:

Run 800M
30 dumbbell cleans 2x20 lb
30 burpees
Time 35:13
It was tough and I took it easy on the weight.  I think I could have done 25 lb dumbbells but I wanted to have enough gas in the tank to do my deadlifts after:
125 lbs 5 reps
140 lbs 3 reps
160 lbs 9 reps
Pretty awesome for me- I think I could have done a couple more reps at 160 lbs but I was losing my grip and didn't think it would count if I reset myself.  Next time on my heaviest set I'm going to try the alternate hand grip so I can pull for more reps since my legs and back still felt strong.
