Like Diane, I took yesterday off. I was just too spent from the workout the day before. I look for role models where ever I can find them! Hehe.

Today I did the Kelly. I walked the 400 yards (ea. round of the five took around 4'), did step ups on 2 ft box, and since my gym doesn't own a 20 lb ball, I did BB thrusters w. bar only. The entire workout took 45'15". While it was long, it felt good.

Nice job on the 5k Mark... always a good feeling to PR.
I took the last few days off because of a nasty head cold, finally back at it.

Monday 090601
"Erin"

Five rounds for time of:
40 pound Dumbbells split clean, 15 reps
21 Pull-ups

My time 18:49 RX'd
I probably could have pushed harder, hard to keep a grip at the end.

glad to see you back at it Steve :)
I think you just broke some kind of unwritten CF rule

Friends don't let friends do Bicep Curls...so knock it off...:D

[B]2009 06 02[/B]

Overhead Squat 5-5-5-5-5

[B]WU:[/B] 0.4 mile run, 5 burpees, 7 back extensions, Burg. WU

[B]Warm Up Sets:[/B] bar x 5, bar x 5, 65 x 5

[B]Working Sets:[/B]
1 - 95 x 5
2 - 105 x 5
3 - 115 x 5
4 - 120 x 5
5 - 125 x 5 almost lost the bar on the third rep

These were harder than I thought they would be. Had origianlly intended 95 to be a warm up weight, but once I picked up the bar, I decided that this was a good place to start.

[B]Romanian Dead Lift (RDL)[/B]
10 x 135
10 x 185
10 x 205

0.8 mile run

Broccoli for all my friends.

[I][B]090602 TUESDAY

Warm-up:
[/B][/I][B]Stationary Cycling: [/B]10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.6 miles
[B]CFRWU

[I]WOD: OHS 5 X 5
[/I][/B][I]These are my weakest lift.Period. Kept the weight light and concentrated on form.
[/I][B]Warm up:
[/B]PVC X 15
[B]Work Sets:
45# bar by 5, 5, 5, 5, 5.[/B] Poor shoulder flexibility - - I had to fight to keep the bar back in the frontal plane for the entire work-out. My shoulders were fried at the end of the workout. Felt the weight come forward (came off my heels) on rep 3 of the 2nd set and the last rep of the 4th set. Last set felt [I][B]great[/B][/I]! These were hard! Not about to add weight for a while until I am rock solid on every rep.

[I][B]Running Work.[/B] Achilles felt good enough today to try some.
[/I]Warm-up 1:00 at 3.2 MPH
Walk 1:00 minute at 4.0 MPH
[B]Jog 1:00 min at 5.0 MPH[/B]
Walk 1:00 min at 4.2 MPH
[B]Run 1:00 min at 5.5 MPH[/B]
Walk 1:00 min at 4.2 MPH
[B]Run 1:00 min at 6.0 MPH[/B]
Walk 1:00 min at 4.2 MPH
[B]Run 1:00 min at 7.0 MPH[/B]
Walk 1:00 min at 4.2 MPH
[B]Run 1:00 min at [COLOR=Red]8.0 MPH[/COLOR][/B]
Walk 1:00 min at 3.5 MPH
[I]I haven't run this fast (even for one minute) since I busted up my knee over two years ago. WOO HOO![/I] :pepper::pepper:

[I][B]Note: [/B]Think I have been overtraining to some extent. Shoulders and arms are shot - - think that I overdid the hard pulling on some of my rows and definitely erred doing BPs yesterday. I was supposed to do 5 X 5s, NOT 5 X 5 X 5s........Can I say "Stupid?"[/I] [I]Pull-up numbers are also down too....[/I]

Hi Terry,

Thanks, I am glad to be back at it.....just having a bit of a slow time at it, though. I like your [I][B]"Friends don't let friends do Bicep Curls" [/B][/I]statement. I don't have any real equipment at the house and thought I'd mix it up a bit. Definitely with you on the Bill Starr quote too. Thanks for posting the link....
