07-06-09 Monday Week 22

Jumped in the 8AM session today with Christin Street (check out her workout log) so she wouldn't have to go it alone... it's officially taper week. Took the last 2 days off. I think I'm ready to go, although, if I'm not - it's a little late to decide that now!

Training Log
5 rounds for time:
20 Double Unders
15 Wall Ball Shots 14 lbs
10 Burpees

Time -- 9:57

I am so pre-occupied right now! Once I get on the plane to San Francisco I will feel better! Like an idiot I booked my flight home for like 6AM on Monday morning! AUGH! I wonder how difficult it would be to switch that....

07-03-09 Friday Week 21

Pic from August 30 of last year when I met Sven for the first time! We got "Randy" together.

SOoooo sore today. Holy crap, my gluteus is maximus-ly perturbed with me! Those lunges were no joke. Decided to do the HQ WOD today. Decided to use the men's weight. I may be paying for those decisions tomorrow and will most likely rest. Depends how I feel.

Training Log
For time:
75 Power Snatches 75 lbs

Time -- 9:32

Last August I did this in 8:24. I was hoping to PR by hitting about that same time with 20 lbs more but my "posterior chain" is so fried out, I wasn't really able to maintain as high a power output as I would have liked due to muscle failure. I will officially begin tapering tomorrow and do something light and fast on Sunday. Leaning towards "Helen" but am open to suggestions. I am thinking that HQ will release the Games wods soon and I get butterflies when I think about it.

07-02-09 Thursday Week 21

Decided to get up early today and do a morning workout with the 9AM crew. We had a great crew! Jonathan, Buddy, Taylor, Cannon, Matt, new-guy John and I with Hassan coaching us - lil ole me and 7 dudes - I like those odds! ;o)

Training Log
5 rounds for time:
20 Dumbbell Suitcase Walking Lunge Steps 35's
15 Dumbbell Single Arm Sumo Deadlift High Pull 35 lbs
10 Knees to Elbows
5 Handstand Pushups

Time -- 15:37

Oh. my. arse. (Got that word from Michael...) Uh, my butt was sore by evening, which is a bad sign considering it hadn't even been 24 hours! I'm going to have a CrossFit waddle tomorrow, I know!

07-01-09 Wednesday Week 21

In case you missed it on the Games site, vid from CF Games Southeast Quals.

Got about 3 hours of sleep last night, but after two rest days, that's no excuse to miss a wod. I did our gym's alternate wod for the 10K run. Did this with Brooke after coaching all the classes today. Amazing that I had the energy left. It's bed for me as soon as I hit "Post."

Training Log
10 rounds for time:
10 Jumping Pullups
10 Push Press 35 lb bar
10 Situps
100 M Sprint

Time -- 14:43
Brooke -- 17:23

That was good, and hard. But it's the same thing, right? Good night.
