Ahhhh, able to do some more squats today. Did some overhead with a piece of lumber in hand. Thanks everyone for the advice on how to get over the soreness. One good thing came from (over) doing so many squats; my depth is better. : )

Did Grace today 1st time: 8:38 (seemed slow) 135 lbs.

I'm not sure. Seems as though it wasn't as relevant to the "event reporting" as the rest of the Regionals. Perhaps I just missed it....

Nice work on the overheads. I can get the depth, but wishing I had the shoulder flexibility. My form just seems to sorta crumble with any weight load over that of an empty bar or so.

That's a kickin' time on Grace, Bill! Awesome!

Thanks Stephen. Is you shoulder flexibility issue from an injury?

You're welcome, Bill. My shoulder inflexibility is from years of never having learned to put anything overhead except either on a Smith Machine, Universal, or press machine. Free weight military presses/shoulder presses were done without knowledge of form and probably not enough weight to cause injury.....so I am as tight up there as an overwound mainspring.....

5/6 WOD

1-1-1-1-1
Snatch Balance
45-65-75-75-75

Followed by:
“Annie”
50-40-30-20-10
Double Unders
Sit Ups

10:23. This is about 3 minutes off my previous time, and is because of the double-unders. I was not feeling great about them to this point, but was able to do the rounds of 20 and 10 without interruption. Need to work on increasing my max consecutive double-unders. Sit-ups are still slow, not sure what to do about that.

The Claw

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5/10 WOD

5 Rounds for Time:
20 KB Snatches
20 Knees to Elbows
200 M Run

17:12. Was trailing Augie the whole way, thought I could catch him on the last run, then he turned on the afterburners. Damn, Augie is fast. Hogans made a rare appearance and smoked everybody. She was done, rested, showered and gone before the rest of us finished.

Was able to link K2E's together, so there is room for more improvement. Felt the effect of the weekend in Seattle eating sweets and drinking. Fun, but the piper shall always be paid in the end.

Warmup included 400 m farmer's walk. I selected 45# dumbbells, and had to set them down 4 or 5 times (not counting the scheduled push-ups on the corners) to finish.

Hahahaha Stephen. I spell rehabilitation = TIME. If I live long enough I should be able to fix almost everything.

CrossFit Excel (Terry Dickman's Box) has posted the final results of the Mens' Masters from the Southwest Regional Competition this last weekend (I don't think the final results are up yet on the CF Games link)...

[B]TERRY PLACED 3rd overall!![/B] That is truly an amazing performance. The Southwest region engulfs all of California and Arizona. He placed 2nd in the Max Thruster workout with a thruster of 225 lbs! He placed top 10 in both other workouts from the weekend.

Terry is currently in 4th out of all athletes in the Masters division who have competed. The last regional will take place on the 30th of this month. If Terry is still in the top 15, he will have a place in competition at the CF Games in July, as the top 15 men and top 15 women (world-wide) in the Masters' Division will have a spot.

Truly AWESOME performance Terry! We're proud of you!
