Steve,
Love your title!
Did you wear your work clothes during the warm up?
Fran is a toughie, but you got to love her! Awesome time!

Bill,

Thanks! Yup, I did wear my work clothes for the warm-up too (though I was nice to my work partners and did change to a fresh set of clothes for work)! I have to agree with you - - Fran definitely causes CrossFitters' love-hate relationships!

CrossFit Sonora "Field Day" at Sonora High School Football Stadium. Lots of fun in the sun - - beautiful day!

[I][B]Warm-up:
[/B][/I]400m of various movements:
50m X Kariokes Rt.
50m X Kariokes Lt.
50m X jog forward
50m X jog backward
50m X Butt Kickers
50m X High Knee run
100m X high lift skipping

[I][B]WOD: "Tabatas in the Sun"[/B](Score is minimum distance/number of reps in each Tabata cycle).[/I]
[B]1. Tabata Sprints. [/B][I](Since this is how I recently tore my left hamstring, these were sub-maximal for me today!). [/I][B]Score; Approx. 70m
2. Tabata Squats (BTB). Score: 10 [/B](Total squats 95).
[B]3. Tabata Stadium Bleacher Seat Jumps w/ Tabata Push-ups. [/B](Jump stadium seats as box jumps - 20 sec, rest 10 sec., do push-ups - 20 sec, rest 10 sec. Repeat for eight cycles). [B]Score: 12 steps / 7 push-ups.[/B]

[I]This was a lot of fun - - would have been even more fun had I not tripped on one of the last steps during the last Tabata round and laid open my left shin. Finished the WOD anyway. One quick ER visit and some stitches later I'm ready to go again......[/I]

Ouch! Living up to the signature there, Steve! Love it! It seems like you are recovering nicely from that hamstring pull, which is good to hear.

I have to say, I think Marianne is on to something. In my experience, doing a metcon first detracts from subsequent strength work much more than the other way around. I think that is why programs like CF Football and CFSB have you do the strength work first. I'd try it for a while and if you really feel better with what you have been doing, revert back to it. Not everyone is the same.

Anyway, great job and keep up the hard work!

Stephen,
Awesome pushup Tabata score! I'm lucky to get 4!:notworth:

Got to watch those Jumps! I've cut my finger on one & started bleeding all over the place! Hopefully you didn't need that many stitches!

Kevin,

Thank you! The injury wasn't that bad and still is not painful - - I'm just glad I didn't hit beak-first! The hamstring pull is doing well, thanks. I'm finding out that my posterior chain weakness has a lot more to do with my problems, hamstring tears/pulls included, than I ever thought. I'm trying to concentrate as much as possible as building that up along with increased flexibility.

Both Marianne and you raise a good point. I dabbled a little with scaled CFFB WODs for a while and did well with them (completing the strength-based work first). I don't really remember which method produced [I][B]better[/B][/I] results for me, but a trip back through my logs will tell me.

Thanks much for the great encouragement and thoughts!

Bill,

Thanks! The 7 score was with broken reps and putting my knees down in between, so I don't know if that's a true Tabata score. I just like the "carrot" (meaning the 4:00 mark) which means I'm done!

I hear you on the jumps. I thought a long time ago that I'd slice myself up on a regular metal-framed box.....but Oh No, the Klutz has to pick a nice, stable, solid, concrete stadium step......:rofl::rofl:. The repair took only 3 double stitches and looks great. No pain to speak of. And what's nice is I can work out Monday!

Counts as far as I'm concerned! My 1st rounds are in the 20's & then dwindle down to 4 - and that's going to my knees!

Yeah, one of our box's "Supermen" considers box jumps to be the most dangerous things we do! They were killing me during Fight Gone Bad on Friday. I was being judged by a lady Col. & I kept missing reps during the last round 'cause my feet weren't landing completely on the top!:ranting2: She told me afterward that she was sorry she couldn't count all those jumps, but she thought my cussing when I missed reps was funny!:censored::icon_spee I had no idea what was coming out of my mouth! :):icon_spee

Makes me feel better. I too started out about 20 or so myself. Amazing how quickly the numbers fall off......

That has to be really frustrating. Seems our "coach" is more interested that we fully open our hips rather than make the landing 100%, so long as we land safely.
