Quick lower body workout

It snowed most of the day yesterday, and with one of our Subarus in the shop, my wife was driving a rental car that is nearly worthless in the snow. So, I had limited time to do my workout last night before I had to pick her up from work. Because my shoulder is still sore, I stuck to lower body work:

Squats: 10@45#, 10@135#, 5@185#, 3@225#, 1@275#, failed at 295 (I aborted the last lift by not dropping to parallel; I could tell I wasn't going to make it back up)

Deadlifts: 10@135#, 5@185#, 3@225#, 1@275#, 1@295#, 1@305#, failed at 315, even though I got the bar off the ground and then came up short.

Static Lunges: 10 per side with a pair of 20# DBs, 10 per side with a pair of 35# DBs, 5 per side with a pair of 45# DBs

18" Box Jumps: 3 sets of 10

Tonight is CrossFit. I just hope there's nothing that will really hit my shoulder. It's been nearly 3 weeks since I hurt the shoulder, and it seems to be getting worse rather than better. It's definitely affecting my ability to sleep at night.
