A. Deadlift 5 x 5
Result: 110kg

B. 3 Rounds for time of:
30 Alt Pistol Squats
15 Deadlifts 90/65kg
Result: 9:19 RX

10 extra kg on yesterday's 5 x 5 deadlifts,  and then 45 @ 90 kg in a metcon... my calculations puts that at just over 6 tonne pulled off the floor. I should note that the last few in the metcon my back had had enough, and stopped playing along. Talking of metcons, I was told if I could do pistols I had to do pistols, and that scaling could come from rep count. A fair call, though I had no idea how many I could do in succession, so I started the first round aiming to see what felt "fair". When I got to 30 unbroken, i realised that meant I had to do 60 more.

Oddly with pistols my right leg was harder than my left, but with the weighted box steps up the other week, it was the right that was getting teh job done with little fuss. I assume it's a case of balance (left) vs power (right).
