Day 8- M+GW

Football Practice: 10am-12pm

First big practice for the fall season. It was good to see a lot of new guys out, plus some returning vets who've been away for a while. We had a strong turnout, almost 20 guys today. It was a nice change, because it's been way to long since we've had enough to run intersquad drills. I'm all for sprints, flag pulling, and route running drills, but it gets old. It's nice to just play. Bring on the season!

2pm:

3 x WU:

10 OHS w/ pvc
10 hip extensions
10 deadhang pullups (chest to bar)
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

"Heavy Makimba"

15-10-5 rep rounds
30# dumbell thrusters
squats
burpees

3:12

As Rx'd, "Makimba" calls for 10# dumbells, but I'd have felt ridiculous doing this workout with such a light weight. Originally, I had intended to do 20#, but when it came time to do it I decided, "Screw it, tomorrow's my 30th birthday. I'm doing 30#." Of course, tomorrow is going to be the real fun. I've got I nice birthday MGW planned. It's gonna be a BLAST!

Day 9- MGW

3 x WU:

25 double unders
20 OHS w/ pvc
15 hip extensions
10 chins w/ leg raise
5 parrallete HSPU's

"30th Birthday WOD"

30 min AMRAP
400m run
30 pullups
30 pushpress, 95#

5 rounds + 200m

This was a fun one, though I didn't have a clear goal going into. I rolled through the first round in about 4 min. At that point, I decided to shoot for 6 rounds; 5 minute rounds seemed very reasonable. Unfortunately, round 4 hit me like a ton of bricks. I had some trouble getting my wind back going into the run on round 5 and had to stop and walk for about 50m to catch my breath. All in all, not bad.

For real, I wish I would have been this serious about fitness when I was 14.

Day 11-W

3 x WU:

10 OHS w/ oly bar
10 hips extensions
10 deadhang pullups (chest to bar)
10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

"Albany CrossFit August Challenge"

10 min AMRAP
75# OHS

200 reps

This was an unscheduled weightlifting day. Normaly, today would be a monostructural day, and I may hit the pool after work. I was asked to give this challenge a try, and today seemed like the best fit. It gives me enough days to recover that I can try again on Sunday, on the off chance that someone tops my score. My friend Glory hit 150 on Tuesday, which means-at the moment- the mens and womens title for this challenge are coming home to CrossFit BWI.

Day 12- MGW

3 x WU:

25 double unders
20 OHS w/ pvc
15 hip and back extensions
10 chins w/ leg raise
5 parrallete HSPU's

"2007 CrossFit Games Hopper"

1000m row
5 rounds
25 pullups
7 push jerks, 135#

15:45

Ouch, doing this the day after all those OHS's was not fun. This was my first time attempting this WOD; I like it. My pullups weren't feeling very strong today; I actually had to break up every set. That's unusual for me; I should have been able to get at least the first set, if not the first two, unbroken. I guess the last two days have left my shoulders a little worn down.

Man, I wish I was built for squatting those numbers!

It's funny you say that, because I've always thought it was strange that you don't squat more-considering how much you deadlift. I think it's a hold over from back in the day, when I used to get my workout routines from Muscle&Fitness. I used to do leg presses like it was my job. I was pressing 800 for reps before I even knew how to do a deadlift. I'd love to have me a 3 x BW deadlift. I'm close, though; I've been teetering on the edge for the last six months. I just need to add about 25 lbs. to my PR, that and get my weight back under 170.

I moved this weekend, so I haven't worked out since Friday (although I don't think I would consider the last three days REST days). To make matters worse, I've been living off a steady diet of fast food, pizza, subs and Dunkin Donuts during that time (plus one marathon session of beer pong, on the last night in the house). I was worried about how I'd perform after destroying myself all weekend, but I think my time was respectable.
