[I]This was a slog! The pull ups took me ~6+ min to complete. The 1st 21 Thrusters, I did in subsets of 7. The last half of the WOD was tougher and I decided to do Jumping Pull Ups during the last run because I could FEEL my shoulder talking to me! I've got to do MORE mobility work!![/I]

Friday October 4, 2013 (Is it really October already??)

15 minutes warmup to do snatches and C&J

Every Two Minutes For ten Minutes
Do 2 snatches at 90% of your 1RM
5 minute rest
Do 2 C&J at 90% of your 1RM

I wasn't sure what my 1RM would be today, so I did the first 6 snatches at 135, did the next 2 at 145, and did the final 2 at 155. I did them all as split snatches. Felt like I might have been able to go heavier, which means I was probably at the appropriate 90%. Same with the C&J, so I did the first 6 at 205, the next 2 at 215, and the final 2 at 225. Did them all with power cleans. The clean is what is limiting my 1RM on C&J.

3 rounds, for time
row 500m
12 burpees
21 box jumps (12", and I actually jumped, see blog post)


I am nearly catatonic at this moment, and I already had a nap...

Saturday October 5, 2013

Really didn't have it today.
Sometimes the Shed 'o Pain should be titled the Shed o' #*$* Pain...

Deadlifts to 440 (failed twice at 440, which is well below my PR)

Karen Rx 13:22 (this was a mental exercise today)
To be honest, there were probably 30 no reps in the 150 tosses...
Improving my squats, especially front squats, really helped with Karen.
But it's the heart and lungs that gave out today.
At least my mind didn't quit today...
Which was a concern, b/c I was unable to complete Karen in the Open last year and it's been bugging me ever since. By way of comparison, once did Karen in 4:32 (before hip replacement).

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Bill and JT it does seem that we sometimes hit wall in some of the WOD's and we get stuck with panting,straining to get control of breathing, and for me slowing my heart rate down. At an elite level, such WOD's would be completed without a break. For me this is just another form of scaling .

Like today's WOD. "DT"
5 rft: 155 # of 12 DL, 9 power cleans, 6 push press. Took this one with 135#. First round in one minute. Then reality set in. Finished in 14:35.
