John J.,

Just had to quip that we in Kah-li-foan-ya get Ahhhh-nold every day! Beautiful up here too, but still no runs/workouts until the middle of next week, if the doc clears me.

Pat,

Hope the cold goes away soon!

Diane,

Thanks. I just need to keep practicing the DUs and they'll come. You're gonna be ripping out those kipping pull-ups in no time.

Taking a break today, just had no energy and a lot of little aches and pains. Back at it tomorrow AM.

[B]Steve,[/B] my wife saw the Govern-ator and Sly Stallone at a local Gap store this afternoon. She said Ahhh-nold had so much makeup on, he looked like a corpse.

3/8 WOD

Snatch Grip Push Press
5-5-3-3-3

Followed by:
3 Rounds for Time of:
15 Overhead Squats (65#)
200 M Run

65-75-85-95-95. Glad to be working on snatch elements, I need lots of work before I feel I can start lifting to my capacity. Both Brian and I tried 105#, and the bar didn't budge. With the small muscles like the shoulders, it's pretty obvious where you stop! I'm thinking about my Press Elite Goal of 120#, and it has to be close, since I was able to get the snatch grip press up at 95#.

5:24. Really happy with my OHS! I used the 33# bar since all the 45#'ers were in use. I put 17.5# on each side, so I actually was doing 68#. Felt like I was getting enough depth on each rep. Talked to Traver about the quality of my reps recently, and we agreed I'm doing much better with my "challenges" re legitimate reps. ;) The runs were the bottleneck; not until the last run did I feel like I was really trying to go hard.

All in all, I felt very good this morning. I got plenty of sleep and rest over the weekend. Ate too much bread, crackers, and cheese (but just the right amount of champagne and wine :D ) at an Oscar party last night, so this week I'm going to eat much cleaner, starting with cold salmon and fruit for breakfast, plus one of KJ's awesome paleo cupcakes. If I didn't know the cupcakes were paleo, I would have guesses they were from crush cakes. Hard to believe they can be so sweet with no sugar!

Cupcakes? :)

I had a great deck of cards workout yesterday, facecards removed. It was burpees, situps, Amer. KB swings and slamball. Jokers were 400m run. I enjoyed it, especially when it ended. :)

Today is a rest day. Tomorrow is Fight Gone Bad, which I've only done once before. Gotta go check my journal and see if I can find how that went. I'm sure I can do better now. :smiley_ev
