    The cold is still sticking around, consequently I haven't slept that well the past few days and am having some trouble breathing right. Performance is about what you'd expect given that. 25s were good, 50s were OK, everything else was pretty bad.

    Tuesday, 12/4/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Did my first day of coaching Tuesday morning, it was more assistant coaching because the head coach is easing me into it. Getting used to the multitasking between two or three groups of intervals is going to be the tough part but it'll be fun. CF in the evening after work. Stuffy and a little sore from a cold so probably not my optimum effort.

    Warmup - rowing drills, 2x(10 KB swing, 5 tempo RR, 5 tempo pushups, 10 air squats)

    Strength - Deadlift (dead stop between reps) - 135/5, 225/5, 275/5, 315/5, 335/5, 355/5

    12 bodyweight DL (190#)
    21 box jumps 24"

    Wednesday, 12/5/2018, CrossFit Workout


    Warmup - plyos, banded stretching, barbell warmup

    Strength - A) Tempo strict pullups - 5x5 fast concentric, 3 sec hold, 5 sec eccentric
    B) Tempo overhead squats (same tempo) - 95/5, 135/5, 155/5, 175/5, 185/5

    Conditioning - EMOM 9

    Got a good tip from Coach Derek on breaststroke today - focusing on turning my hands out at the end of the recovery. Definitely feels different, will keep playing with it!

    Also, going to start coaching the Tuesday morning practices starting next week. One of the Masters coaches isn't on staff for the club team anymore so the other coach was looking for some people to take a couple days, I think one of the other club coaches is going to take another day too. Should be fun, I was kind of hoping to get back into coaching again, even if it is just our little Masters group for one day.
