Jerk(2x24kg) 3 minutes @ 8 rpm

Snatches felt good again today. Left side was better than the right. I was able to keep my backswing all the way to the end on the left, but the right side started to fall apart over the last 40 seconds with the last 3 reps being dead snatches......but I did it. It is important for me to get comfortable working the eight minute sets both mentally and physically, then I can start to pick up the pace again.
I shut down the planned 5 minute jerk set at the 3 minute mark secondary to some knee discomfort. At this point, I think it is better for me to heal than to start pushing the jerks too early. I continued to work the single leg squats (Bulgarian Split Squat) and am hopeful that by rebuilding the strength in my quads (especially vastus medialis) and glutes will help my knee pain.
