oust the overhead squat!

5 rounds for time of
5 push press @ 45 lbs
15 Overhead Squats @ 35 lbs
Row 500 meters
time 19:25

Went too light on the push press I thought about going heavier but I was concerned about wearing my shoulder out before the hated overhead squats especially with 5 rounds. Might have gone too light on the overheads too but I wanted to be in really good control of these as they are a hard position for me to get into since my shoulder surgery. I didn't have to break any of the sets. But they were really tough on my shoulder and I am curious to see how it is going to feel tomorrow. Just having to do these made me think of how I came to the decision to start doing triathlons. I've always been incredibly impressed by triathletes and always wondered if i could do it. After having two surgicial procedures in a few months, i retired from kickboxing, and was limited in what crossfit workouts I could do. So I started doing crossfit endurance workouts and I decided I wanted think about the things I accomplish this year instead of the injuries and surgeries and downtime and what I couldn't do but rather what I can do. Even though I hate the overhead squats I know it is exactly what I need to be doing.
