With 3 regional competitions out of the way so far this year, I'm at two wins, and one 2nd place.
I've been following the crossfit, ME, crossfit routine for roughly 8 mos. now, aside from a few minor hiccups(partially torn achilles tendon). Aside frome this, I try to get event training once, or maybe twice a week. If I don't feel the WOD is suited to my goals at the particular time, I'll bypass it in favour of one I feel will benefit me in my pursuit. I know the purists will say that this approach will keep me from being the best "all around" athlete I can be. But right now, "generality" isn't what I'm looking for.

The highlights so far have been:
Pulling a school bus for 75 feet. Don't even ask me what it weighed. Lots!
Cleaning a 290lb log. Even though I wasn't able to press it.
Farmers walks with 305lbs per hand, for 75 feet.
Flipping an 800lb tire for 100 feet in 62 seconds.

Things are looking up!

Great work Steve!

Those are some big lifts! I can only just break 200lb farmers off the ground and carry them about 15ft and flip a 700lb tyre once! Lucky i'm a lightweight:blush:

A few of the CF Sydney guys are going to have a go at qualifying for strongman nationals this September.

I've just finished a squat specialization routine and am now back to morning event training + CF workout and afternoon O lifting. I don;t have access to a full blown gym so what i've done is written up on cards a series of CF workouts that i can do with what i've got here and i just draw a card at random for each day.

You freaking monster. Pull a school bus? My God, I need help to push start a scooter. The log cleaning I could do assuming I had a good rag and some polish. I've got you on this one because I actually, no kidding, won an award at at the 2005 Sea2Summit race at one of the special tasks when I did the best ironing of a shirt. I could press that log with no problem. I could probably walk 75 feet with a 305 pound farmer, I don't see what the big deal is about that one. I might be able to flip off an 800 lb tire but I have trouble enough flipping the 300 pounder I have.

Steven, you are incredible. Amazing work. Keep us posted on your exploits. Though they produce feelings of escalating inadequacy, I am amazed at the things people can accomplish.

Steve great job. Truly bone crushing events.

Eug, ironing a shirt, for time? You really are the all-around athlete.
