[QUOTE=Jason David;453180][B]11/22/08[/B]

Today was a big day. Ever since I beat Vinny's time in 'Fran' i've been looking forward to the next time...and beating him again!!!

Today we did Fran. Vinny's wife was there...there was a pretty good group and we were all fired up and ready to go.

Vinny's best time prior to today was 5:38...Mine was 5:03. I though there was no way in hell he was going to bet me. We both PR'd but get this...his time was[B] 4:21[/B]GOOD LORD!! What a monster!!! My time - 4:49. PR by 14 seconds so I guess I can't be too upset. This is why we love CrossFit. The minute you think you got it all figured out somebody comes along and kicks you in the pills.

Great job Vinny!! I'm gunning for you!![/QUOTE]

Great job for both of you setting new Fran PRs!

keep it up!

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

I don't usually post skill days but today I planned on doing the MCCF Warmup and some MU and pistol practice.

I could not BELIEVE how close I was to my first MU today. I got all the way up to the middle of the transition and my elbows just kind of got away from me. I couldn't believe how close I was though. Makes me think that it's only a matter of time now.

I can't wait!

1 - 172
1 - 192 (LOL)
1 - 182 (F)
1 - 182
1 - 187 (F)

Weighted Pullups

1 - 28
1 - 33
1 - 36
1 - 38
1 - 49 (PR)
1 - 50 (PR)
1 - 60 (F)

PR is kind of silly as I'm still losing weight. Also on a few of them the height was iffy. I mean I got there but might have used a little bit of body english.

I also jogged lightly 400 M for no apparent reason.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Ran in the turkey trot yesterday...times weren't posted til today.

My time (5k) 27:10.
Have to subtract at least a minute from that though because it took forever for me to get to the starting line.

Anyway...good times...and 4 minutes better than my last 5 K in May.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Front Squat

10 - 45
7 - 95
5 - 135
3 - 185
1 - 225 (PR)
1 - 230
1 - 235
1 - 240
1 - 245
1 - 245
1 - 245

I guess they were all PR's...last 1 RM was 220 but haven't done it in a while. Must have a lot to do with form since my front squat has gone up and my back squat has pretty much stayed the same since I started CF...

100 Burpee pullups (G.I. Jane) - Always wanted to do this...used the PU bar closest to the door

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

AMRAP in 20 mins.

5 Clean 135#
10 KB swings 1.5 pood
15 Med ball pushups?

11 rounds + 2 cleans

Med ball pushups were weird...vinny just kind of invented them today when we were thinking about what to do. If anybody has done these let me know. but it's weird because you have to keep your balance and keep your hands from sliding down. We use everlast med balls instead of dynamax. they're a little smaller and a bit more firm.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle

Ugly day today...don't know if I've been going too hard or that yesterday was over 50 cleans of 135# but today was deadlift day and I was not good...

Here's how it looked


10 - 134
7 - 184
5 - 225

3 - 275
3 - 295
3 - 305 (F)

Did not attempt the other sets. Back didn't feel right. Strength wasn't there. Mental toughness wasn't there. Don't know what the dilleo was. I'm going to chalk it up as a bad day. Last time I had a rough day like this was deadlift day too...owell. I thought I was getting better at these suckers.

I may try some (deadlifts) on friday but not sure. I am taking a scheduled off week next week. My last week off was beginning of September and I don't to 50% weeks. I think i'm going to finish out the week though with some intervals. We'll see.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 05:12 AM.
