[COLOR="Blue"][B]Hero WOD Nickman[/B][/COLOR]

With a 55-lb. and 35-lb. dumbbell, 10 rounds for time of:
200-meter farmers carry with both dumbbells
35-lb. weighted pull-ups, 10 reps
55-lb. dumbbell power snatches, 20 reps, alternating arms

Subbed from jump with 2 x 40# KB. My grip was failing after five rounds, so dropped weight to two 30# DBs. I did ring rows, and did 10 snatches with my right and rows/band pulls with left.

This WOD ranked in the top five hardest that I've ever done. Looked moderate on paper, but execution was another story....Finished in 49:00.

Rest easy, Specialist Burley!!!

Challenge Day 2
25 Goblet Squats 40#


I was long overdue for a long run, so today was the day. Bonus was that I ran on a new stretch of trail that I missed out on a few weeks back.

Bad was that my wife texted me while running, and it paused my app...:( I knew something was screwy when the audio coach didn't announce my second mile.

Trucked on until I hit two miles, and turned back. It wound up being nearly 5.5 miles; 4.8 miles in 46:04 by the app.

Challenge Day 3
30 Goblet Squats 40#

[B][COLOR="Blue"]San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb[/COLOR][/B]

My daughter, some friends and I participated in the 4th annual climb at the Tower of the Americas. It's always been an honor to sweat and honor the sacrifices of the brave who lost their lives on 9/11.

My knee feels like it's gonna be nagging me for a day or two....:crutch00: I've iced it and currently using a compression sleeve. We'll see how it feels in the a.m.

[B]Active Rest Day[/B] :snore:

Wisdom dictated that I lay low today....My knee felt much better but I don't want to jeopardize my legs for the sake of a workout. So, ended the 21 day challenge until further notice:(

Did some shoulder mobility work at PT, and iced my knee. Compression sleeve will go back on until bed.
