[QUOTE=Stephen R. Lampl;636748]Thank you, Sam! Fingers crossed, but I find out today if I have a job - - that will take a lot of stress off me. Legs seem to be healing up well, but I think there is something wrong with my jump and jump stance on power cleans and power snatches - - Rt knee hurts just a bit after I get done.

BTW, I got asked to put together a choir at our church for occasional special music. I am so stoked, because I haven't had a chance to direct a choir for perhaps 20 years.....we mostly do contemporary Christian, which is fine with me - - gonna start playing bass and singing again too, so that's even better!

Take care![/QUOTE]

:thumbs_up yayyyy job!

[I][B]090804 TUESDAY

Warm-up:
[/B][/I][B]Walking/Running: [/B]23:00. 1.6 miles total; incline at 1.5%.
Walked 3.5 to 4.0 MPH for 10:00 - .5 miles.
Ran/jogged .5 miles at 5.5 MPH
Walked .25 miles at 4.0 MPH
Ran .25 miles at 6.5 MPH
Cool down - walked .1 miles at 3.5 MPH
[I][B]Note: [/B]This is the best my legs have felt since I injured myself a month + ago. Very slight tightness in my left hamstring at 6.5 MPH run until I would consciously focus on relaxing. Felt GREAT to run a total of .7 miles today!

[B]CFWU - [/B][/I]Modified

[I][B]WOD: "Tabata Something Else" [/B](also for August Tabata Challenge).
[/I][B]20 seconds "on" of exercise, 10 seconds "off". Repeat for total of eight cycles per exercise with running clock for 4:00 minutes.
Pull-ups: [/B]10/10/6/7/5/7/6/7 = 58
[B]Push-ups: [/B]11/11/10/9/8/7/8/7 = 71
[B]Sit-ups: [/B]16/16/16/15/15/14/13/13 = 118
[U][B]Squats: [/B]16/15/16/13/12/12/12/12 = 108[/U]
[B]TOTAL: [COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black]As Rx'd - [/COLOR][/COLOR][I][COLOR=Red]355 - PR by 20![/COLOR][/I][/B]
Last "TSE" was 090502; 325 as Rx'd. Did 336 on 081202 with jumping pull-ups.

[I][B]Strength Work:
[/B][/I][B]Dead Lifts.
Warm-up sets:
[/B]PVC X 10
135# X 5
[I]Was going to use 185# as warm-up weight, but it sure felt heavy and I felt wasted. Decided to work on form and take it easy on the hamstrings a bit more......
[/I][B]Work Set:
[/B]185# X 5 X 3.
[I]Really concentrated on form - - "squeezing" the bar off the floor and focusing on bar alignment throughout the range of motion for each lift. Also tried the hook grip (properly) for the first time - - really took the load off my grip. These felt great, if not really heavy today.

[B]Double-under practice[/B][/I]: About 5:00 or so. Used my own rope. I need to stop putting it off and buy and decent rope. Got 2 chained together 3 times. Lots of trips and misses otherwise.

Christin and Gordon,

Thank you both! Felt good to have some "forward progress" again!

BTW Christin, you have really inspired people to just "go for it" even when they are in a slump, funk, or general "downer." You are a blessing to us all in the CF community! Keep up the great work! I expect you to not let me be a "slacker" next time I work out at CFED.

I couldn't agree more Steve. Anytime I feel like being lazy I go back to her post for inspiration. I workout from home so somedays it is difficult to dig down for the motivation, but going through some of my favorite logs here pushes me to try harder each time. This is probably the strongest aspect of crossfit in my opinion, not the physical side, but the fantastic community behind it. Thanks to you, Christin, Keith, and everyone on this site who inspires me daily to become the best I can be:thanx:

I too have been working out solo. I never thought that I would do as well as I have - - I am more a group / competition-motivated person, yet the CF community drives one to succeed, regardless. I believe you are right on the mark when you state that is the greatest aspect of CrossFit.

Hey Steve, great news about the choir. That should be fun!

And you're right about the CF community being motivating. That's why I always post my workouts/activities.....it keeps me from slacking and taking too many rest days and stuff like that....I'm too embarrassed to have too many days go by without posting!

Thanks! I haven't directed a choir since we first were in Crescent City nearly 30 years ago. Everything has pretty much gone the way of guitars, bass, drums, and keyboard.

Gotta agree with you about posting. And the knowledge that people possess here is nothing short of amazing. Ask a question or make a comment and you might get a response from a physician, kinesiologist, PT, or what have you!
