Slight deviation in training

Today's Crossfit WOD was fun!

Five rounds of:
5 Dumbbell deadlifts
5 Dumbbell hang cleans
5 Dumbbell push presses
5 Dumbbell squats

I'm feeling a bit fatigued and a little sick from the antibiotic I'm currently taking for a potential staph infection (see Saturday's post), so this was a great workout for me. I didn't need a lot of energy -- something I have less of since starting this medication.

I'm not very strong but thought I would be able to increase my weight, ending at 40#. Boy was I wrong. I started at 15#, and the most I was able to successfully lift was 30#. I tried twice to lift 35# and was able to deadlift and hang clean the weight but could not push press 35# overhead. My attempts went like this: 15-20-25-30-35f-35f-30.

Today is supposed to be an endurance day, however I may change up my week as weather forecast is rain all day Wednesday. Plus, I ran Hulls twice yesterday, instead of my normal rest day. If I do my hill training tomorrow, I should give my legs a rest today and avoid CFE - though I need to add it later in the week.

Extra work:
I worry about my core and hips for the ultra run. I felt a little muscle irritation in my left hip during yesterday's run. So, I will spend time this afternoon working my core, hip and doing a little 1 legged jumping.
