Quick warm-up on some moderate problems,

(The system training went better than I expected. Still have a hard time with the cross-throughs.)

Walked to work.
Walked down 13 stories of stairs during fire drill.
Walked up 13 stories of stairs after fire drill.
Walked 1/2 way home, stopped on Public Square for Marine Week display.
Climbed all over tanks, APCs, LAVs, M155, HMVs, and then......
Couldn't just walk past the pull-up challenge.
Did enough strict pullups to win a lanyard.
D*mn I wanted to get 20 and get the kick-*ss technical shirt.
Those marines, and all the people watching, were pretty surprised to see a 50+ year old fat guy knocking out pullups!

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Overhead squats with 87% of your body weight is remarkable.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday June 17, 2012

Rode 21 miles in 1:30, that's 14 mph.
112 miles at 14mph is 8 hours.
Would need to be faster than that to allow 2 hours for swimming 2.4 miles and 7 hours to walk 26.2 miles...

Longest ride since hip replacement and hip scoping/detailing.
Now, where did I put that couch!

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Monday June 18, 2012

Warmed up by riding 2 miles on my mtn bike.
12 minutes work on c&j technique, with full clean squat.
10 minutes working up to heavy squats
21-15-9, for time, of:
155 power clean
ring dips (green band)
Made 21-15 and 1 power clean in the 15 minute hard count.
Then puked.

CrossFit sucks because it removes your ability to say “I can’t.” If you can’t press 100 pounds, you can press 50. If you can’t press 50, you can press ten. If you can’t press ten, you can press one, or an empty hand. If you can’t squat 100 pounds, you can squat 50, or 10, or simply sit down and stand up, over and over. If you can’t do a ring dip you can do a ring dip with a green band, or a blue, or a red. CrossFit sucks because when you can’t say “I can’t” anymore, then all of a sudden you can.

CrossFit sucks because candy used to taste so good, and be such a treat. Now candy just represents extra pounds for every pushup, pullup, ring dip, and squat. Candy used to taste so good going down, but now it burns when it is puked back up onto the floor of the box.

CrossFit sucks because of the puddles of sweat that pool at my feet after running through my hair, through my eyes, off my nose and chin, and down my back. Sweat used to be subtly or gently brushed aside after a nice wedge shot or putt. Now it stains my clothes, runs in rivers into the gutters in the box, and needs to be wiped up. Sweat angels aren’t sweet, and they aren’t angels.

CrossFit sucks, literally, because of all the times I can’t breath. Metcon equals “you can’t breath”. 21-15-9 is from the book of “why can’t I breath?” 3-2-1-go means “soon you won’t be able to breath.”

CrossFit sucks because every rep counts. And every rep goes in a book, and the next time that WOD comes up you know where the bar is and who put it there. You can’t duck your own bar.

CrossFit sucks because you have to schedule a time, which tends to make you show up at that time. And then it starts on time and has a structure and a plan that finds and fixes weaknesses you would have rather just ignored.

CrossFit sucks because people want you to finish the WOD, and help you finish the WOD, and no-one helps you quit.

CrossFit sucks because no matter how hot it is in the box it’s hotter somewhere in Iraq. CrossFit sucks because no matter how cold it is in the box it’s colder somewhere in the high mountains in Afghanistan. CrossFit sucks because no matter how hard you’re puking or how hard your hands are shaking, someone else is puking harder or shaking more through no choice of their own.

CrossFit sucks.

I wonder what tomorrow’s WOD is…

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Wednesday, walked for an hour
Thursday, hard Xfit workout that I don't completely remember. It involved burpees, box jumps, running, situps, ball slams, overhead squats, and pushups and took 45 minutes. It sucked.
Friday, rest day so far, hoping to ride my bike tonight at the farm.

Saturday, hope to walk five miles then climb (then have a helicopter take me back so I don't have to walk the five miles again)

Sunday, hopefully bike riding.

JT Kalnay 06-23-2012 08:27 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Saturday June 23, 2012

Five laps around the one mile track at the farm in 1:18:35. That's a whole mile farther than my longest walk since the hip replacement. Here's the splits, 17:30, 17:30 (35), 16:00 (51), 15:00 (1:06), 12:35 (1:18:35). I was stopping every lap to get water and towel off and would wait until the bottom or top of an interesting minute to get going again.

So five miles in basically 80 minutes would be twenty five miles in 400 minutes, add on another 15 minutes for the 1.2 to get to 26.2 and that's 415 minutes, which is just under seven hours. Hmmm..... If you count two hours for the swim, that would be nine hours, that would leave seven hours to ride 112 miles.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday June 24, 2012
Rode 25 miles in 1:50.
It's great to be riding.
I love my recumbent, even though you can't get it going very fast b/c (a) I'm kinda heavy (b) it's kinda heavy and (c) no way to get aerodynamic.
Still, it's great to ride the deserted country rodes out by the farm, even the hills!

Tim Babcock 06-24-2012 11:58 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Ten Sleep is in Wyoming. It's in the Big Horn Mountains. Mostly sport. Supposed to be really good.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
190 Ain't Lyin' On Da Floor...

There is real and distinct peril of drowning. My shoulder muscles have failed, and I am face down in a puddle of my own sweat. The thrusters are done, the back squats are done, but the Metcon is grinding away, until first my right shoulder, and then my left shoulder refuses to work. I can’t breath. I can’t roll over. Nothing works except whatever produces pain. I am going to die on a hard black rubber floor in 90 degree heat in the CTown Crossfit gym. I start to say good-bye to hope and pride, when two neon orange lifting shoes appear in my peripheral vision. “190 ain’t lyin’ on da floor” a voice barks down at me. He’s right. It’s here in this gym, and on a clean plate of real food, but it isn’t lying motionless on this floor with me. It has to be relentlessly chased down, earned, fought for. I force out one more rep, somehow make it to my feet, and head to the bar for pullups. It ain’t lyin’ on da floor.
