3/27 WOD

“Full Grace” – Challenge Trials
30 Squat Clean and Jerks For Time (135#/95#)

7:45 @ 105#. It's been a crazy week (poor food, bad sleep, lots of stress), so I did not have high hopes for this one. I'm pleasantly surprised with this performance.

Hi everyone! Have to share my new [COLOR="red"]rowing PR.[/COLOR]...

[COLOR="Red"]I just rowed a 1:58.[/COLOR] :pepper: My previous best was a 2:04. I'm convinced it's due to my new home studio (see my blog or log for pics).

I kept looking at my pace, and when it would get to 1:55 or so, I'd lay off until it'd get back to 2:00, and then I'd pick it up again. I thought that was a good way to survive and break 2:00. I just couldn't hold steady at the 1:55/1:56 pace. I was hurtin'.

Thanks John! And thanks for leaving a comment on the blog. Hey, you need to go out this weekend and buy some paint and spiff up your home gym. No excuses!!!

Smooth [B]Nancy[/B]...congrats.

3-29-10
WU: 1600m C2=7:30.9

WOD: 30 Muscle Ups
I did this using a technique I learned recently wherein you place the rings so the bottoms are just touching the tops of your shoulders. Using a false grip and standing on one leg (ladies choice) lean back until arms are at full extension and execute a jumping MU.
I did 10, then adjusted the rings up 2 inches, did another 10 and adjusted up another 2 inches. I managed 8 more when I failed and then executed last 2. Didn't keep time.

I was in a hurry and did the following mini-METCON:
AMRAP in 7 minutes of:
1 x #135 push press
2 x ring push ups full ROM
3 x pullups

Managed 9 full rounds, though I was shooting for 10. Got sweaty: met goal.

Nancy, Congrats on the PR. Your studio looks great. Another reason to swing through SoCal.

Nancy---cool gym. I love the bosu. I am not a certified trainer. Got a cert. in bosu locally so I could be more creative with it. I was introduced to it as a part of PT after knee surgery in 2004. Cute pooch posted in your blog.

Terry, give us all the story once you've caught your breathe. What were the work outs? What were the age ranges competing?

Today I did the 100326 from the main site: 5 RFT of 40 Double unders, 30 Box Jumps@24", 20 KB Swings of 1.5 pood (or 55#DB). I subbed on 5:1 singles, step up instead of jump, and 55# DB for KB.

This was a long one at 39:18.

Just got the manual for the Level 1 cert. in Scottsdale this May. Getting psyched just anticipating the weekend.
