The runs always feel slow and probably are. I think the clock said 2:00 when I came in on the first one. Quick singles for all of the power cleans. I scaled back from 185# to keep the pace up and again to not risk my back. I split up the rope pull-ups to keep things even with one hand higher on the rope. 5-5-4-4, 7-7, and then my grip was giving out, partially due to a cut on my thumb, so I went 5 and 2-1-1-1. It was kind a of a jumping rope pull-up, but still a lot of pull. Finished in 11:05.

Happy with my loading and scaling choices lately, especially with the switch to this Ben Smith affiliate programming. Keep moving and keep the intensity high.
