[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;982033]:highfive: whats weird about that? I can do one. on a good day. for sure itd be easier if i was smaller and lighter (if I could I would, on WL days ;).[/QUOTE]

Hi Deb and thanks for the reply. I found it a bit weird because it seems like I was (kind of) bragging (posting) about two deadhangs when a bunch of folks here are so much stronger, faster, fitter and older than me. And I have set the bar a helluva lot higher on deadhangs so wondered if I shouldn't just wait and post when I hit, say, 10?

A PR's a PR; stronger faster fitter older - just a little bit further down the same road; youll get there!

Great PR! 2 deadhang pull-ups at 245lbs is VERY impressive!

Rest day for me. Gonna do a little hike with the dogs and pickle some cukes.

Nice work Bill!

[B][U]Sunday, Sept 4[/U][/B]
Jogged 0.5 miles to high school track
Ran 1 mile (8:30, HR mid-130s), walked 1 lap
Ran 1 mile (8:05, HR around 140), walked 1 lap
Ran 1 mile (7:50, HR in 140s) walked 1 lap
Ran 1 mile (7:05, HR in 150s)
Jogged 0.5 miles home

Almost 6 miles in total. Temp humid and in low 80s. Felt good today. Felt like I could have kept up the 7 min pace for a while. Hoping for a 21-something 5K at some point this year.

You big guys always have a hard time on pull ups. It's just like biking. It's the lighter guys who get up the hill fastest. That's what makes cross fit so great. You can press, bench, dead lift, etc. much more than some of "speed guys". It all evens out.

Felt better in afternoon. Easy 1/2 mile swim.

Looks like allot of good work going on. Out sick for some two weeks. Nasty ear clogs from flying w. Head cold and diving with grandsons. Got back to Tribal last Wednesday to discover my aerobic capacity at zero. Friday and Saturday were better.

Saturday: 3rft.
40 du
30 box jumps
20 kb with 1 pd.

Scale: singles and 12"box. The jumps were an experiment as I usually just step up on a higher box.

14:48.

Sunday knees were stiff. Today I'm catching up on outdoor work so I'm blowing off the late morning workout at Tribal. Great news Coach Jack Priest is moving us from the current 1500 sq. ft. w/o A.C. to a new 3200 sq. ft. place w. A.C. in January.

Core workout.

Power Clean and jerks: Warmup with bar @10 reps; 95lbs @ 10 reps; 115 lbs @ 5 reps; 135lbs @ 10 reps

4 mile run @ 33 mins. Felt like a governor on my lungs.
