Re: The Shed 'O Pain

Today is Thursday, February 18th, 2016. I haven't posted on here in quite a while, simply because I haven't done anything worth posting in quite a while. But as I morn the passing of my friend JT, I've been thinking a lot about his endless enthusiasm and the incredible advice and support he's given me over the years. So, this week I decided I was going to attempt to live up to his legacy and get back to working out. After all, if he were still here, he would be hitting it hard.

I've been climbing at the gym pretty regularly (bouldering three days a week), so I'm not COMPLETELY out of shape. But that's all I've been doing. Participating in the "JT Kalnay Memorial Dinosaur Slayer WOD" at Crossfit 15:13 this last weekend was the first REAL workout I've done in a VERY long time. I got through it, but I had to scale it WAY back.

So, I climbed at CRG on Tuesday, as usual, which is no great accomplishment. On Wednesday, I hit the Middleburg Heights rec center after work and got on the treadmill. Running has always been my first love (especially long distances), but the last couple years have been a struggle for me (I guess I really am getting old). No expectations and no ego, I did a thirty minute workout.

.25 mile walk (3.5mph)
1 mile run (6.1mph)
.2 mile walk (3.0mph)
.8 mile run (6.1mph)

Pretty sad for an ex-marathon runner, but it's a start.

Thursday, I was back at CRG for my typical bouldering session. After climbing for about 2 hours, I did a pull-up and ring-dip pyramid, 1,2,3,4,3,2,1 reps of each, followed by 75 wall-balls with a 12lb ball. Yes, I said WALL-BALLS, my least favorite CrossFit exercise. I'm going to hurt tomorrow.

I've said many times that JT tried harder than anyone I know. I owe it to him to do no less. Here's to trying harder.

As predicted, the legs really hurt today, so I kept the workout very light.

Treadmill:
.25 miles@ 3.5mph (warmup)
2 miles@ 6.1mph
.25 miles@ 3mph (cool down).

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

No workout Saturday or Sunday. Saturday was the JT Kalnay climbers memorial at Kendall Cliffs in Peninsula. It was really great to so many old friends again,
especially Rick, Tim and Brad.

Sunday, I went to CRG and set two new boulder problems. Both are mod- but contain a little bit harder move just to spice things up a little.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

Climbed at Rock Mills with Jeff, Norm, and Mary. Yes, Mary! Very fun to share my passion with my daughter. Did lots of good problems. Most were pretty easy but a few harder ones. I particularly enjoyed a white problem in the front that Jeff, Norm and I collaborated on.

Later Mary and I had a short session in the Shed.
3 TGUs @ 35, 45, 53, 62, and 71#.
Worked in some mobility work and 5 sets of 10 reverse wrist curls and pronators.
Worked with Mary on fall technique onto a gymnastic mat. Worked up to about 3 feet. She catches on quickly.
