The day after a big workout always seems to go to the extreme for me; it either completely sucks and I'm useless, or I get warm and moving, things loosen off, and I do pretty well. Today was the latter, as much as that can be the case for a workout that's not my jam! I trained at around 3:30pm.
6 Behind The Neck Press 50kg
3 Strict Muscle-Ups
No Feet Push Jerk
Build to heavy single - I managed 115kg, although my right foot may have moved a touch!
For Time: "JT"
Background: In honor of Petty Officer 1st Class Jeff Taylor, 30, of Little Creek, VA, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28, 2005.
“JT” was CrossFit’s very first hero WOD. The original hero workout was posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Wednesday, July 6, 2005 (“050706”).

Honestly, for a second Hero WOD in 2 days, I was really happy, but there's no pretending this is a strong workout for me. My handstand push-ups are really weak, as are my shoulders in general. This time ranks poorly compared to my other Hero workouts and benchmark workouts more broadly. That said, I'm pretty confident it's the fastest I have ever done it, so that's a big win!
I had breakfast at 7:45am, which consisted of 4 bacon rashers, and 4 scrambled eggs.
At 12;30pm, I had 4 bacon rashers, halloumi and 2 scrambled eggs.
At 6:30pm I had a banana and and orange for a snack.
I'll eat again at 9pm, however I'm not sure what I'll have yet, as I have to go shopping first! It'll likely be steak based though, for not so much of a change!
