[B]Deb I hope you feel better soon![/B]

[B]8-10[/B]
15 min AMRAP
3 pull-ups
6 35# KB Snatches
9 24" box jumps
7 rds + 1 rep

Also did my very first HSPU's to 2 abmats 3rds of 3 reps. I'll take it!

[B]8-11[/B]
Rest
[B]8-12[/B]
"Gator" scaled to:
5 reps 85# front squat (from clean, all racks were taken)
15 reps strict dumbbell push-ups
8 rounds for time: 24:50
My shoulders burned for 3 days after all of those db push-ups

[B]8-15[/B]
Every minute on the minute do the number of pull-ups & push-ups of that minute. Once you can no longer finish a movement in the minute continue with the movement you completed.

11 rounds of pull-ups...1-4 unassisted, 5-8 red band, 9-11, blue band. 9 reps of minute 12.
9 rounds of push-up
Total score 20.
Huge pull-up progress day by getting 10 unassisted. It's about friggin' time.

[B]8-16[/B]
Run 5K 34:32
Sadly my 5K time has decreased. I'm not a runner and I don't pretend to be one. I just keep working toward improvement through rowing and met-cons.

All in all I'm pretty darned happy with my life with CrossFit. I slowly continue to improve across the board and I'm good with that for now.

Every minute on the minute do the number of HSPU and Pull-ups of that minute. My first (scaled) HSPU's. Thanks coach Grant at CF Green Bay! Had 4 10# plates and an abmat on top, but I am still thrilled.

6 rounds, then finished with pull-ups (green band) to 13.

Not too bad, I got to train!! :)
Its weird b/c I was fine Wed., wed. nite my left hip started hurting in front, then also my stomach, I drove 2 hrs to the shore thurs. am and then realized my back was hurting and that I was pretty tight - staying with relatives a few days so I couldn't stretch out more than a little bit.

Coach seems to think its not a slipped disc per se but a pulled hip flexor (I think they originate on the spine there, would explain the back and stomach issues.) He poked around on my back some, told me to take a hot epsom salt bath and do some soft tissue work or use the balls. He said it would get better. Hurts when I bend over or sit, and still cant squat to full depth. But everything else was good as long as I kept my arch. Go figure!!
I remember snatch grip push press with the bar I'd have to cry myself to sleep. LOL

5 k.m. run

29:25

knocked 5:35 off my last 5 k.m. run which was november 13th:broc::broc:

and felt resonably good doing it. i guess droping those 25ish lbs since then didn't hurt either.
