Everything felt very good today. I knew after pushing my pace on Tuesday with the 20 minute set that I would not have that same effort in me today. The KB jerk and snatch sets were done at a pace that I could have carried on a conversation with someone while doing, and actually did during the snatch set while 2 other guys were deciding what weight increases they should use squatting.

The Deck of Cards was an interesting one at the end. I had never done a 'deck of cards' workout before and therefore did not try to do anything too crazy with it. I'm sure I will do this again, as it was a nice mix up and finish for the day.
