Still on vacation.

Buy-In:
hike on the beach

8 rounds:
Run 80m
Rest as needed

16.23+14.75+14.02+13.62+14.39+14.01+14.65+14.4=1:57.07
PR by 5.28s on the total and almost a 2 tenths PR on the 80m.

Tide was pretty far in this morning, so some of these were through about 6 inches of water.

Rest as needed was part throwing the dummy for the dogs and part waiting for a more opportunistic time with the tide.

Cash-out:
more hiking on the beach

Inertia plays a mighty role in recovery, and an object at rest on a couch can stay there for a long time.

Morning all, Rest day today, Just waiting till Saturday to kick off next training cycle.I will be dropping the weights back to low 200s on Squat.Main focus will be to reawaken Muscles I haven’t used since 1990s when I squatted mid 400s regularly. I will be doing the same with Lea Ann also, With the exception of her using special squat bar. I found an old Video of her from 90s using the box or milk carton crate. The weight is 303 x 2 after her Worlds win in Canada 1993.  We wish all of you a Happy New Year and Continued success in your training Goals .Guy and Lea Ann .  http://vimeo.com/83027564

Thanks for all your encouragement and the coaching you give to us here on this great forum!
I wish you and Lea Ann a healthy and injury free 2014 !

Thanks David Back at you.

  Rest and Recovery are every bit as Vital to a successful training program as the Exercise itself. The two have a symbiotic relationship, relying heavily on each other to affect positive change in the Athlete.

TUESDAY 131231

Handstand walk 100 meters (SUB: Wheelbarrow walk)

If you fall, restart at the point of contact furthest from the finish.

Post time to comments.


Time: 9:43.7

I was using a wheeled chair so I could propel myself, and holy buckets was this hard. Having to make U-turns every 10 meters due to space constraints didn’t help much, either. My lack of supreme upper body strength really revealed itself in this one - my abs, although a little sore, aren’t quite so bad. Incredibly, I fell about 50-55 meters and had to put myself back into position to resume. Then, I also had to take short rests at both 60 and 80 meters, and struggled the final couple of meters to completion. I had given it everything my upper body had.

I feel like such a supreme wimp for having to take this WOD on the easiest level, and struggling with it as mightily as I did. I’m not really proud of myself the way I normally would be after finishing a tough WOD - instead, I feel like such a failure instead. My cardio is so good, my lower body solid and capable - but my upper body just struggles with just about anything you put in front of it. I will probably be sore for days. :-(

Don’t be so hard on yourself. You attempted the WOD and that’s most of the battle. There are a lot of CrossFitters who’ll have to scale, me included. Your strength will come; keep at it.  “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

Deadlift
135lbs x 8; 225lbs x 5; 315lbs x 5; 385lbs x 1 (f); 385lbs x 1 (f); 365lbs x1; 365 x1 (f); 315lbs x 4

Wanted to do deadlifts today so when I saw Murph’s sets thought I’d copy them. However, 385 was just not happening today. Scaled back and then finished up.

I scaled the wod and it was still way harder than I anticipated.

20:00 on spin bike warm up
100 handstand shoulder taps, facing wall, 9:41.
Then lateral wall walk, 12 feet right then 12 feet left in 4:00.
20:00 spin bike cool down.

I definitely felt my core working overdrive.

@OPG, thanks for another helpful video. Lea Ann is inspiring!

Second Glorybell!

Since I’m in, this is my work the last day of 2013 (in btw social comitments, sauna and dinner, no gym today);

365 (well, 365 days ~ 8*45 reps)
45 sit ups
45 SU
45 squat
45 SU
45 push ups
45 SU
45 jump for reach
45 SU
*wear a 10 kg vest

10:32
The jump for reach became “jump as high as I can)
Sit ups took most time.

Happy new year all! 30 min left, and someone is tanked to the limit! No HR wod tomorrow! 400 meter walking lunges will do the trick.

Press 5x1 - 115x1, 155x1, 155x1, 165xF, 157.5xF -
Yesterdays thrusters did not help. I realized that after I was logging my workout in yesterday that I would be pressing again today. Next time I guess. Whoops.

Push press 5x3 - 135x3, 145x3, 165x3 PR, 145x3, 145x3 -
I scaled back the last couple sets after the PR to save the shoulders for the Jerk.

Jerk 5x5 - 135x5, 155x5, 165x5, 170x5 PR, 155x5
My press was disappointing, but the Jerk made up for it. 20lb more on my Jerk then my last go at this in April.

Handstand walk 100 meters

I’m not really comfortable upside-down/in a handstand (even kicking up to a handstand), so I scaled this to 50 wall walk-ups.  I put down lines one yard apart that I touched during each rep.  Still really tough.
