8/6 Endurance WOD

Run 35 minutes from Old Mission up Gibralter Road.
3.14 miles, 1,130’ elevation gain.
(WFS) [url][/url]

Took a little longer to feel warmed up (i.e. not out of breath) on this run, but then pushed it pretty hard. Just a bit over 11:00 per mile pace, well ahead of my 12 minute mile goal. After a short cool down walk, ran fast downhill with Quigley. I also have to say – and this is no reflection on Kiwi’s programming – I am getting pretty goddam tired of running up this hill. Will be glad once I get this year’s Pier to Peak under my belt.

8/7 WOD

A. Thruster, build to a 1RM

B. OHS, 30X2, 3 reps, 5 sets, 2:00 rest
EMOTM, 8;00
5 PC+PJ at 70% 1RM
Did not do, stretched out instead.

I have been missing lifting weights a lot lately, so I decided to come in to Open Gym to do the strength part of the Sport WOD. Good ROM on all movements I am pleased to report. Strength down as expected. I have basically never done heavy thrusters, so 155 seemed OK. OHS way down, but part was probably the 3 second descent. Also I am fasting today. Good to know I still have it in me to make poor Crossfit choices!

8/8 Endurance WOD

25 mins as far as possible up Gibralter Road from a little past intersection of Gibralter and El Cielito.

2.31 miles, 907’ elevation gain. Average pace 10:51.

I pushed it very hard. No way I can keep sub-11 going up Gibralter Road for the entire race, but I held it for over two miles.

This is the same WOD as 8/1, and it showed great improvement! Here is a comparison (WFS): [url][/url]

Deadlift 7-7-7-7-7-7-7 reps

For each set, touch and go at ground only.

135(7), 185(7), 205(7), 225(7), 245(7), 275(3), 225(7)

[I]This WOD looked great on the main site. My grip was the limiting factor. I really wanted to do break 300#.[/I]

[B]7 Aug:[/B]
15 min:
Est Max 3-position Snatch (Floor, Hang, High-Hang)
45#, 65#, 75#, 85#

[I]It helped doing some OHS with the target weight, which helped. But the 85# were power snatches.[/I]

50 Wall Ball (20,14#)

50 Double Unders [I](150 Single Unders)[/I]

40 Box Jumps (24,20")

20 Cleans (145,100#)

[I]Did everything except 28 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) and the cleans. Felt good about the wall balls and the box jumps. It also included a run from one side of the base Globo. Kinda wanted to get to the Cleans...[/I]
