Mobility Work
A few deadlifts, hip thrusts, push ups, and ring rows. Shoulder was hurting.

Mary, JT, and I went to the reservoir and did hill repeats. I did 6. Legs are wobbly.

Easter Sunday 2015

Some easy deadlift warmups
Death By 225# deadlift
made it through 7 rounds

Hill repeats at the Res.
Did 4 all the way to the top and 3 half way to the top.
My legs are jello

I feel no shame in getting beaten up the hill by a high school cheerleader

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
2 problems
3 TGUs 15, 20, 35, 45, 53#
5 rounds
Felt pretty good.

Did 7 strict ring muscle ups. Felt strong. Even did one with a 8# ball between my feet.
Tried 3 attempts at a strict bar muscle up. Third one successful. First one in 2015. Hopefully many more coming...

Still some weakness and pain in the neck/shoulder. Obviously much better though. Tomorrow I'm heading to see a orthopedic sports medicine doctor. I wanted to be able to tell him what I could do and couldn't do. Surprised myself a little today.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
10 KBS 35, 45, 53#
5 pull ups
5 burpees
Gentle Shoulder Stretches
3 rounds

Wall Balls
15' Rope Ascents

5 sets of 10 ab rollouts
Squat holds and and handstand holds between sets.

I went to an orthopedic sports medicine doctor (he was so young) today. They took a lot of x-rays of my neck and shoulder area. The x-rays show arthritis and a bone spur on one section my neck vertebrae. The shoulder and rest of neck are in good shape. He prescribed a set of steroids and a short stint of PT. He mentioned gentle neck traction and assessment. I will ask the PT about neck alignment and what exercises and stretches will help.
This is probably the best outcome I could have expected. I am on the mend and seeking knowledge on how to prevent (or minimize) this in the future.

Wednesday April 8, 2015

Walked 1 mile at a brisk pace, no back pain, no legs falling asleep, very nice.

Coached basketball for 1.5 hours
This involves throwing hundreds of passes and chasing down rebounds.
I was drenched at the end and loving it.
Today was a conditioning day for the kids, not a skills day, and not one of them complained. I was running them HARD!!!
