Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

CFWU x 2 (10 rep, 5 rep pull-up)

Monday 090209
"Cindy"
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats

As Rx'd: 17 rounds + 5 pull-ups and 4 push-ups

Felt really good on this. Started off strong (for me) and didn't feel like I burned off too bad. All pull-ups were unbroken sets. Almost all sets of squats were unbroken. As usual, push-ups were what held me back.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

CFWU x 2

Tuesday 090210
Deadlift 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

280-290-300-310-320-330-340(Fail)

Worked out in the moring for the second time in a long time. My back was starting to round on the last two attempts and I barely got the bar off the floor at 340. Going to try making it to jiu jitsu tonight. I haven't been in the last few months. Between physical therapy on my elbows, being insanely busy at work, traveling, and getting into crossfit, I've been putting it off. Going to try getting back into going at least two days a week. I'll have to see how I'm feeling this afternoon.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Went to jiu jitsu for the first time in almost 4 months. Haven't been back since I started doing crossfit. Normally, when I come back from taking time off I feel like I'm in my first ever class. Tonight, everything came back really quickly. I think that was completely due to the body control I have gained from crossfit. Additionally, I didn't get the slightest bit gassed when we rolled at the end of class. Normally, it takes a few weeks to get used to sparring even if I'd been working out really hard leading up to it.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Sunday 090215
3 rounds for time of:
Row 500 meters
21 Burpees
Run 400 meters

As Rx'd - 21:03

Didn't realize until the middle of the first round that I had the resistance on the rower on the highest level. Same problem with nutrition as last weekend. I always end up skipping meals and not hydrating enough on the weekends.

After recovering from the WOD, I did some work on thrusters, butterfly kips, and handstands.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Did and hour and a half of jiu jitsu last night. Felt fairly good throughout the entire practice. I had to roll with a guy who is a professional fighter and almost 1.5x my size. Needless to say, it was a pretty painful 5 minutes. I wasn't able to try anything offensive and spent the whole time trying to prevent myself from getting tapped out.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

CFWU x 2

Tuesday 090217
Squat clean 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

125-135-145-155-165-175-180

Then practiced butterfly kips, double unders, and handstands. The jump rope I got was too short and kept wacking me in the back of the head.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Wednesday 090218
With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

Previous attempt: 13 rounds plus 10 pullups

Today - 14 rounds plus 8 pullups

This was one of the first WODS I did when I started crossfit. I was hoping for a much bigger improvement. I was confident I would get it and felt almost nothing until I hit round 11. Then, I kept losing my grip. I'm hoping the fact that I worked out in the morning and didn't eat anything before factored in a little. Going to have to make adjustments before next morning workout.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Thursday 090219
For time:
50 Ring Dips
Run 400 meters
50 Push-ups
Run 400 meters
50 Handstand push-ups
Run 400 meters

As Rx'd - 25:47

Long, stressful day at work. Felt good to get a workout in. Dips and pushups went ok. I was pretty frustrated with my handstand pushups. They're usually one of my strengths. But, today they were almost all broken up into sets of 3.

I am probably going to take off the WOD on Saturday because I have the Hustle up the Hancock race up 94 flights of stairs on Sunday. Really not looking forward to it. I just found out I was off the wait list a few weeks ago. Originally, I was planning on doing some stair specific training. But, then I decided that Crossfit was more important to me and I didn't want to take a chance of overtraining. So, I've just been following the WODs. We'll see how that works out.

Re: Impossible is the Opposite of Possible

Took Saturday off to stretch and get ready for the Hustle up the Hancock. Ran in that yesterday and felt great considering I didn't train for it at all. Didn't have to stop once the entire 94 flight climb. Biggest issue was trying to pass big groups of people every time I caught up to a previous wave. Not only did it slow me up a ton, but I felt like I was burnign out my legs more having to walk up one step at a time as opposed to sprinting and letting my momentum carry me through. Oh well. Had a great time and definitely glad I did it.

Sunday 090222

Climb 94 flights of stairs for time.
