06-20-09 Saturday Week 19

This machine is called the Prowler and I can't think of one nice thing to say about it.

I had to go to Macon this morning, my mom and step-dad live there, it's where I grew up and my sister came up from Florida and my grandparents from Louisianna. I decided to stop by CrossFit North Macon to check them out. I am really glad I did. Howard and Virginia are great people and I had an awesome time talking with them and working out there! I am going to try to talk my mom into trying them out ... Mom, I know you're reading this - you should do it!!

Training Log
11AM
Front Squat 3x3
145 x 3
170 x 3 (previous 1RM)

Phew. That Prowler thing is hard! I loved it in that CrossFit kinda way, where the more awful it is the more you appreciate having done it when it's over. I'm not sure the exact distance I pushed it but I started out with 4 lengths, then did 3, then 2 - so the distance got a little shorter with the descending rep scheme. Yesterday was rest day but I am still sore from a really tough couple of days.

No doubt, the prowler is a b@stard. I like incorporating sled drags into my training.

Your workouts have reached another level of ill, Shana. With that kind of volume under your belt, you're gonna crush day 2 in Aromas.

Hey Shana,

Awesome work Saturday.

I think the one-way distance is 80' for the prowler push. I'll remeasure just to be sure.

Thanks again,
