The day began kinda crappy with light rain, but got better as the morning progressed. :)

[B]Endurance[/B]
50 solid minutes of HIIT at the park today!! :pepper: I had some really energentic folks there, so we cranked it up a notch.

[B]Strength[/B] :weight_l:
Squats 3x3
315#

I didn't think that I still had that left in me but it seemed relatively easy...after the first round.

[B]Skills[/B]
Played around prior to my circuit class and strung 10 DUs!!!!:D After my lifting, I practiced for 10 minutes.

I have been using a standard rope or my DIY cable rope. I'm definitely going to invest in a quality speed rope soon.

A good friend sent me a link to trail unning the other day. It inspired me to get out and run this morning!!

[B]Endurance[/B] :run:

I did about 3.6 miles in 34 minutes wearing my weight vest.

I stopped to take some shots of the view from the lookout tower, and forgot to restart my app....:o Also, I almost bit the dust on the second mile but maintained my footing. But, my big toe was not so fortunate....:crutch00: I ripped about an inch of skin on the outside portion of that toe. I still finished with a reasonable time even with a blood-soaked sock.

[B]WOD[/B]

I followed CFFB WOD today. I didn't Rx cuz 50# would have whooped my arce....;) I used 30# DBs.

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes:

DB Bent Over Rows 7 reps
DB Cleans 7 reps
DB Push Presses 7 reps

*Use 50 lb dumbbells for this workout

11+7

[B]Skills[/B]
15 minutes DUs

I borrowed a speed rope from the office to get a feel for different ropes. It's a lot lighter than I'm used to....I strung 6, 6, 5, then 6 in four attempts. I'm getting there.

Most of the practice time was trying to find a rhythmn.

[B]Strength[/B] :weight_l:

I tried some new exercises to help out my deadlifts. I've never done either before. A bunch of tutorials stated that you should rack pull more than your max DL, but I erred on the side of caution and went with close to 85% of my 1RM.

Rack Pulls 4x3
325#

Pendlay Rows 3x5

5x5 Pull ups; gotta get right for the Murph Challenge;)
