my bench press while 70 lbs under my last p.r. is 30 lbs more than last time i did 1-1-1 for bench press so i will take that as a sign that my shoulder while still sore and not happy much of the time is getting stronger

4 Rounds: 400M run; 15 Thrusters @ 95 lbs; 15 pull ups: 26:53.

Did the run a little slower (fluctuated between 6 and 7 minute miles) so I had more in the tank for *thrusters. *Don't know if it's a good strategy. Will try all out running next time this WOD comes around.

Nice Perry!

They gave us a 20 minute cut-off and I just finished round 3 at the cut-off with 65# thrusters. I was not a happy camper. Sacrificing speed for the heavier loads is a head game for me.

[B]9-13[/B]

OHS 1-1-1-1-1 75#-85#-90#-95X-95#
FS 1-1-1-1-1 105#-110#-115#-120X-120X-120X all in my head.
BS 1-1-1-1-1 115#-125#-135#-145#-155#

No complaints. :)

I don't understand the 20 min. cutoff. What's the objective in that?

Generally speaking the trainers will cap a WOD they think should be done in a given amount of time based on mainsite demo times. Some days I get disgruntled with it because I'm trying to get my WOD's closer to Rx'd in weight and that forces me to go slower. I have no doubt I would have finished the WOD between 26-28 minutes. I have often wondered if other boxes do that. Especially since I'm one of the only 4 or 5 masters aged peeps there.

Cliff - Sounds like you're making GREAT progress!! That's what you need to focus on!!

David - I'm still finding my "P"'s in many ways!! ;)

Michelle, Perry - I know that frustration when they cap a WOD, but that usually means that the WOD becomes a different one, i.e. starts using a different metabolic pathway. I usually trust what the instructors are telling me to do. Frustrating at times, but it's been working so far!

[B]WU:[/B]
Plank holds to "bird dogs"
Hollow Rocks
40ft walking lunges with rubber bands over head touching the ground with each hand every 2 lunges
40ft broad jumps from squat with rubber band over head & 3 pass throughs every 2nd jump

Snatch Balance Practice

[B]WOD:
[/B]30 26# Left Handed Kettlebell Snatches
1000m row
30 26# Right Handed Kettlebell Snatches
1000m row

13:56 [I]What leg smoker!! 30 KB Snatches & THEN row!! Tried to focus on form (Especially my hip extension!!). Was the 1st one done in the class! Next time I'm going for heavier weights!![/I]

They were talking about somebody talking to some girl and will it be a relationship like a bf/gf thing or what (theyre ALL young very good looking very nice boys great personalities! can date anybody!!). Pete and I were laughing in the codger's corner - I told them, what youre worried about THAT? "relationship" "marriage" overrated!! Doesnt matter - you either committed or not regardless of how "official it is; if the girl's talking to you at all about seeing you and then, its well, oh, i kinda sorta have a BF - SHE'S NOT COMMITTED! fair game go after it! Probably think Im crazy, but you can be married and NOT committed!! Granny giving life advice, OMG :rofl:
I saw my grandbaby on a sonogram today just one (twins & triplets run through all four families) - looks like a speck! Its the size of a grain of rice yet - he/she (i dont care, long as its a healthy baby) due in April. Well I know it'll have light blue eyes and blonde hair!!
