WTG [B]Michelle![/B] Valarie where are you? :)

[B]8_9_11 Tuesday (pm)[/B]
warmup & stretch. bit of a surprise, I didnt follow the workout listed, and I so wanted to snatch and try pulls w/the new thing. He was going to teach me to do the ham/low back tension. Instead he told me snatch press & drop snatch...I had showed him the vid of my snatch misses at 100#.
75.7kg today

50kg (3) suck suck goose (the third one was the best)
53kg (3)
55kg (f/f - wasnt dropping under; again he said I had started dipping fast, no-no)
45kg

[B]1 Mile Brisk walk with dog[/B]

I have never done drop snatches before. Not too bad; better off not to think about is it heavy and just - drop. They weren't bad, he said one was perfect; my legs didnt bother me much after squatting this am, of course it wasn't a lot of volume/weight either.

Jerks were eh again - way better than last time but I wasnt getting the bar back quite enough and then not getting explosively under when I got up to 55, tired I guess. And, all weights I've done before. Kinda disappointing.

Coach pulled me aside to tell me I look big and muscular, and that must be good. Apparently starting to look somewhat like a weightlifter; now if I can start to lift like one – soon. :p

And Rex BEGGED me to walk him when I got home; he also friended me today on Facebook. And when I added him, I saw the little sh*t listed me as his grandma!! gotta be someone I know. :rofl:

So it's back on coumadin! :ranting2:
My wife asked me how I can be so calm about it. I told her it hasn't killed me & I treat it like a WOD. (Hell, I did Murph in a vest while on it!) [/I]

Ironic how CF trains our brains this way eh?

[B]8-10[/B]
I am elated today. I've been working on shoulders religiously for quite some time. A couple of weeks ago we did handstand holds and I made it 1:29 which was a minute longer than my previous time. This morning skill work was HSPU. I managed 3 sets of 3 reps on 2 abmats and I am freaking happy with that!! Progress slow and steady on the fundamentals is what is really working for me.

15 minute AMRAP: 3 strict band dead hang pull-ups (3 burpee penalty if kipped), 6 35# kb snatches, 9 24" box jumps. 7 rds + 1 rep.

Thanks all on the OHS comments!!

Jim: That's great running! Very good time on hills.

Today: 3 rounds: 10 HSPUS; 50 kettle ball swings with 2 pood; 20 thrusters @ 95lbs; approx. 50 yards of lunges with 30 lb dumbbells.

Totally exhausted myself with this self designed WOD. The HSPUS are too similar a movement to the thrusters so both were very hard to do in one workout.

Coming up on three years of cross fit. Once I had knee surgery in 2004, my running days were over. Several years of just push,pull,leg days at the gym. Some yoga, pilates, and hiking thrown in. Until I started cross fit, I did not realize how comparatively strong and how feeble my endurance had become.
