got up early and decided not to wait for Sat. class. Went to local pool and swam laps for 30 minutes. Mixed drills and running in water.

9/2 WOD
Pier to Peak

2:45
Messed up my Garmin a little way into the run.
First 10:31 [url]http://connect.garmin.com/activity/218367340[/url]
Break for Garmin screw up, about half a block.
Remainder of run: [url]http://connect.garmin.com/activity/218367372[/url]

Three goals. First, finish. Second, run all the way. Third, 2:45.
Achieved first and third goals. Ran first 10 miles, to Flores Flat. Next two miles were steeper, probably 3:1 running to walking. Thirteenth mile was just cruelly steep. Walked probably 90% of it. This was very hard, probably similar effort to doing Murph 1.5 times. Very proud of myself, the other CPC'ers who participated, and thanks to the best cheering/support system one could ask for!

Welcome JT and David :kicking0:

Had an evaluation last week, Functional Movement Screen. Wow. Shoulder ROM sucked, some balance and flexibility issues with my lower extremities. Working on fixing these now. The theory is that working out over movement impairment will continue to perpetuate the problem, slow performance, impede progress and increase risk of injury. :yikes:
