Doing 1RM C&J followed by "Grace" is not a good mix. So if the WODs don't line up well, then be ready to change one of them. Eat well, drink a LOT of water, and get good sleep. Good luck!
Things are well in Iraq. My prior post pretty much sums up a response. I really have to watch myself for signs of overtraining. Back home at our box, I get "sucked" into the programming a bit too much and don't take a day off during the week because I don't want to miss a particular WOD. You guys do a great job of programming and I like the results, so I tend to push myself too far and wind up having to take more time off than I would like.
Let me know what you think of the calendar that I attached.
