You guys and gals need to ease back a bit. You're going to over do it. Besides I'm jealous. Tried to go for a 1 mile walk yesterday. Got 3/4 of the way to the turn around point and decided I had already gone to far. Took a long time to work my way home. Went back to work today. Over did it of course. Paid for it after I got home.

Row 5K - 19:29.1

Rest 10 minutes
KB drills

WOD
KB Fran
21-15-9
Thrusters (Two 35# KB)
Pull ups

7:08 (PR)

Something must have been in the air today. Don't have too many days like this anymore. My "warm-up" row put me only 5 seconds out of the top 25% in our age group on the C2 ratings board.
My KB Fran time was not only a PR, but I actually took 2:32 off my previous best.
Totally gassed but everything just felt good and worked right. If I didn't smash my thumb between the 2 kettlebells while putting them away, it would have been a perfect workout.
Maybe if I lose another 30 lbs, I can break 5 min.

Yesterday I ran 1.5 miles, then did 50 pushups, situps and squats of varying kind. Did I post that already? We had some layoffs yesterday. It was a long and intense day. But I'm still employed.

This morning I did Karen for the first time. Used a wimpy 6# ball and tossed to 10'. Really improved on the form. I wish there were at 8# ball to move up to. 10# is pretty darned hard. It'll be good for future warmups that include wallball though!

Up for discussion

I wonder how many of you have level one certification and if you might have any comments about it. I am sure that there are certain places that are probably superior.

Perhaps we can all get together somewhere. It would be fun.

Today's WOD
20 minutes bike
25 minutes T/M incline

Impressive day. What's a GI Jane? (maybe I don't want to know).

[B]Steve,[/B]
Congrats on the job! Nice short WOD. They never look as hard on paper.

[B]Pat,[/B]
Great job on the wtd pullups!

[B]Charlie,[/B]
Sounds like the recovery is hell. Hang in there.

[B]John,[/B]
Great "Fran" PR! and congrats on the rowing time. All that rowing is paying off.

[B]Deb,[/B]
Let us know how those manmakers go in a WOD.

[B]Diane D,[/B]
Serious core work today. Great job.

[B]Mark,[/B]
Nice job on the snatch/run WOD. I think I'm "looking forward" to doing that one in the next few days.

[B]Diane M,[/B]
Good job on the PR. Maybe scale the reps with the 10# next time?

[B]Jay,[/B]

I did my Level I almost 3 years ago. Skip was one of the trainers. Whether you want to train other people or not, you'll learn a lot and have a blast.

[B]08/31/2009[/B]
Taught the usual early Spinning Class. In evening, did my DL's.
CFWU x 1 round
DL 132x5; 182x3; 226x3; 256x3; 286x3. High Reps 226x14.
Not feeling it so skipped the Met Con.

[B]09/01/2009[/B]
CFWU x 1 round
BP 44x5; 94x5; 134x3; 144x3; 154x3; 164x3 (PR for 3)
High Rep BP: 134x10, 134x5, 134x6
Wtd Pullups (x1): +25; +45; +65; +70 (supine grip); +80 (fail); +70; +70
Met Con: from CF Football, 7 rds of: 7x135# Overhead Squat, 7x24" Box Jump; 7xClapping Pushups. Foolishly thought this would take me about 10 minutes. Time = 18:12. Should have scaled the overhead squats, but I did get 4/7 sets unbroken. Can't snatch that weight so would have to clean, put on rack, then push jerk from behind the neck to start each set. Kind of a grind. Box Jumps and pushups unbroken.
