Because it feels so good when I stop

I've been underestimating the effect of ~50 thrusters, I think. Unlike the burpees, it appears this is not really a fire-and-forget kind of workout - it typically leaves me feeling pretty thrashed for the rest of the day. Of course, it could be that I'm doing these the morning after heavy squats.

47 thrusters at 77#, bear rules
10b(o), 10c(f), ML10a(o), ML10b(o)

The thrusters were moderately horrible. I think I'll make it to 87# under these conditions, but it's going to be hard and may take a couple attempts. The last 10, in particular, are when things start to fall apart. I wasn't able to make it to 50 this time - the bar just fell out of my hands on the 47th front squat.

I was pretty wrecked for climbing, as indicated by the fall on the (pumpy, granted) 10c. I've also now twice gotten a kind of electrical twinge in the fingers on my left hand when working it hard on a climb. I'm VERY nervous of injuring my fingers, so I backed it off and just focused on mock leading.

I wanted to go to class in the evening, but Rebecca had one of her horrible headaches, and I just couldn't get it together to do Mr. Joshua in the rain, as beat up as I was feeling, so I slacked.
