Thans, LeeAnn! It is an awesome feeling. I let out a yell when I got the last lift...didn't look to see if anyone was staring. :D

Hi Delita,

Thank you! The cert was a blast and taught me so much, it's hard to adequately describe. DLs felt wonderful - glad my grip didn't give out.
I'd never have thought of myself as being / becoming an animal. What a great complement! You made my day!

Thanks Carter! The cert really did help my technique. I also feel a lot stronger in that my eating is finally getting dialed in.

Hey, congrats on the Cert and that DL. That's a huge jump. You've clearly been getting way stronger doing things other than max DLs. Nice job on the 6x500m row a couple weeks back, too. Holding a pace like that for that long is positively brutal.

Patrick,

Thanks so much for your kind words! I clearly would not have been able to do this without the encouragement and knowledge you have brought to and shared with me and others!

[I][B]....You're making better gains than most of us youngin's....


[/B][/I]I don't know about that, Justin, but I sure surprised the heck out of myself! If anyone would have told me six months ago I would be doing this, I'd have told them otherwise....

Makes me wonder what I couldda pulled 30 years ago....my best ever back then (well....at any time until CF) was 245....

Thanks again for the encouragement.

090305. THURSDAY

Worked out again at globo in Cottonwood, AZ.

Warm up: Treadmill. 5:00 at 4.0 MPH.
MOD. CFWU X 1rd
Shoulder pass thrus X 10
Body cir ea. Dir X 10
Trunk rotations ea dir X 10
Push ups X 10
Sit ups X 10
OHS X 10
Dips (jumping assist) X 10
Pull ups X 5
Db swings X 10
Lat pull downs 75# X 25

WOD: Helen.
Was going to do this one - Didn't realize how gassed I was from DLs yesterday until I tried the db swings. R/ Achilles was really hurting too when I ran...

Substitute workout:
Progressive 400m runs
1. 400m @ 5.5 MPH
2. 400m @ 6.0 MPH
3. 400m @ 6.5 MPH
4. 100m @ 7.0 MPH. Had to cut it short due to R/ Achilles. Took short rests at 4.0 MPH between runs. Too bad I had to stop. These felt really strong and I'm sure I could have gotten 8.0 MPH today...

GTG kipping pull ups. Tried to work on technique despite cramped space, which forced me to really concentrate.
4, 4, 3, 4, 2, 5, 5, 3 = 30.
Got the fives when I got a chance to explain the kipping PU to a retired strength coach from the local community college. She wanted to help me with my pull ups 'cause it looked like I was having trouble doing them. She'd never seen a kipping PU before. - had to really concentrate to show her and explain while I did them. Ripped 'em right out!

35# Db swings X 20M. Was going to do more. Totally smoked...went home.

BLEH!
