"Thanksgiving Throw Down"
Worked out at Seneca East with a group of 10 Crossfitters including Eric, Carl, the Ruffing Brothers, and others.

Mobility Work
Kettlebell swings, a few bar muscle ups, and TGU's.

"Fight Gone Bad"

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. We did 3 rounds.

Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps) I used 65 pounds.
Box Jump: 20" box (Reps)
Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps) I used 65 pounds.
Row: calories (Calories)-They only had 1 rower so some of us had to substitute another exercise. I did rope climbs.

The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

I lost count of the reps so I'm not sure of my score. I just tried to keep a steady pace going. It was fun working out with a group of like minded people.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Crossfitting friends.:)

Trip report 11-20-2012 to 11-24-2012
Thanksgiving climbing trip to The Red River Gorge
Thirteen of us rented a cabin at the Cliff View resort in Kentucky to spend the Thanksgiving holiday climbing and chillin' with friends. Joe and Tracy DeGaetano and their kids Jack and Ella, Paul and Christina Nelson, Criss Whisenhunt and Spencer V. Martel, Lena Moinova and me, Vladimir Tokarev and two dogs.

Lena and I left Cleveland after work on Friday and got there around midnight. Unfortunately, the cold that I had just got over last week decided to come back on the drive down and I was feeling pretty bad by the time we got to Kentucky. Chris and Spencer and Joe and Tracy and Vlad had been there since the morning and spent the day climbing. Paul and Christina arrived a couple of hours after Lena and me.

Wednesday morning, we split into various groups and headed to the rock. Joe, Chris Spenser and Vlad to Military Wall and Left Flank, Paul and Christina went to do Jack the Ripper, a trad route, I don't remember where, and Lena and I went to the Solar Collector to work on her project, Blue-eyed Honkey Jesus.

We got on the two 5.11b's for a warm-up, which Lena waked up, but I had to hang on pretty much every bolt. I had no energy, and being steep routes, they took more strength than technique to get up them. I'd flashed them both last year, but it wasn't happening this trip. As I was pulling the rope I saw a guy walk past me that I'm sure I recognized. So I picked up the rope and headed to the base of Blue-eyed Honkey Jesus, 5.12b, to get in the Que. The crag was packed with great climbers who were warming up on the 5.12s before moving on to the Gold Coast. I found out later that it was the Sterling Rope climbing team.

So the guy I had recognized turns out to be Daniel Woods. His girl friend was getting Blue-eyed Honkey Jesus and he was belaying for her. They offered to let Lena climb on there Petzl sponsored draws and we sat and watched her climb waiting our turn. It was almost noon at this point and true to its name, the Solar Collector was getting pretty warm. This badass sponsored climber complaining of the heat the whole time, bailed at the third bolt.

So Lena gets on and cleans those nice Petzl draws replacing them with mine. Daniel woods actually commented that he liked my wire gaits better than his. So, Lena finally gets on her project and makes it to the fifth or sixth bolt before falling and then did it bolt-to-bolt the rest of the way. Not bad for the first attempt of the day.

I got on it next hoping to dog my way up it. I got through the relatively easy bottom without too much trouble and actually made it to the clipping hold for the fifth bolt but I had my hands crossed so I wasn't able to let go to clip and took a nice big fall. It was too step to get back on, so I came to let Lena have another go. She decided however, not to get back on and leave my draws on the route until tomorrow. Ok, now I'm not happy. Not only did she decide to leave my draws without asking, it also meant that I was required to return the next day to a crag that I really didn't like in the first place.

We moved on to another area in Muir Valley that we had been to earlier this year, yes the place with the falling cows. We got on a 5.11b and I barely got up it. I had to hang a couple of times; I just didn't have the energy time climb steep rock. Lena did one more 5.11 that shared the same start, but I didn't get on it. I was done for the day. It was already getting late and I wasn't feeling very good. Lena wasn't done yet, so we hiked down to the next wall where she did a few easier routes. before we finally headed back to the cabin.

Back at the cabin, we found Paul sitting on the couch with his foot up on the table with an ice pack on it. Apparently, he took a forty foot fall on the trad route, blew a piece and hit a bulge on the way down. Paul was done for the trip. Joe, Spencer and Vlad hadn't gotten back yet, because they had to take Vlad to the hospital after he fell clipping the shuts, hitting his head on a tree behind him and slamming his face into the wall. He was wearing a helmet, but he still hit hard enough to black out for two minutes and split his lip open. So the first day really sucked.

Day two, Lena and I got up really early and headed back to the Solar Collector for round two on her project. She warmed up on the same two 5.11s and I declined to climb since I felt like crap and I'd already done them and wasn't real fond of them in the first place. Back on the project, Lena one-hangs it twice and then decides to leave my draws on it for another day. Argh!!

We went back to the cabin and had an awesome Thanksgiving feast. It was great spending time with such good friends.

Friday morning, was our last in the cabin, so we all packed up and headed home to lick wounds except Lena and me who moved to her friend Janelle's cabin. Lena dropped my sick butt off there and went climbing with Andy, a friend of Paul who had come in late Wednesday night.

Saturday morning was spent helping Janelle winterize the cabin and then Lena and headed back to the Solar Collector for round three. It was really cold, about forty degrees, and I was not very happy. Again, I belayed Lena on her warm-ups and then got in line to get on old Blue-eyes. The crag was packed. Everyone was hoping it would be warm there, but it was cloudy all morning so it didn't warm up until much later. Finally, Lena gets on her route and thank God, she sends it first go. She really did do a good job and there were plenty of climbers on hand to congratulate her and feed the ego.

Apparently not satisfied, she starts looking to get on something else and I finally lost it. I told her I was done and started packing up to go. On the hike out, she confronts me and I totally break down and yell at her. We spent the entire trip working on her project with me belaying and coughing and feeling like crap and not getting any climbing in, and she couldn't understand why I was upset.

Angrily, we headed back to the cabin, packed our things and headed home. Six hours is a long time to be in a car with someone who is ****ed at you. We finally got home a little after 10:00 pm. unpacked and went our separate ways. I did apologize for yelling at her when we got home, but this weekend definitely hurt our relationship.

This was by far, the worst climbing trip I've ever been on and at this point I have no intention of ever going on a trip with Lena again.

As a foot note, pun intended, Paul went to the hospital upon returning home to Columbus, and found he did not break anything, but tore all the tendons in the top of his foot.
