  1. All Sorts of Stuff

    Heart of America Competition

    7 events over 3 days for the weekend - some tougher than others. Was a fun event, long weekend though!

    Monday, 10/1/2018

    Softball league doubleheader. This may have made me more achy than the competition - I am not used to swinging a bat or throwing!

    Tuesday, 10/2/2018 CrossFit Workout

    I had wanted to swim today but morning dog duty was on the docket instead because wife was out of town for work.

    Warmup - barbell warmup

    Strength - Clean deadlifting (hook grip, dead stop) - 135/5, 225/2, 275/2, 315/2, 345/2x6

    Conditioning - AMRAP 11
    15 cal row
    10 KB snatch 53#
    7 rounds + 11 cal row

    Wednesday, 10/3/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Had been planning to take a rest day but wife texted me at work and said she was going in the afternoon so I went with. It's a workout I enjoy anyway.

    Warmup - stretching, PVC warmup, plyos, gymnastic warmup

    Conditioning - "Nate" AMRAP 20
    2 muscleups
    4 HSPU
    8 KB swing, 70#
    13 rounds + 3 reps

    Thursday, 10/4/2018 Pool Workout

    Finally back to the pool! Did not feel good at all.

    3x200 3:30 same pace
    1x500 same pace}
    rd 1 - p/pads + snorkel, rd 2 - k/fins

    200 warmdown

    4000 yards

    Friday, 10/5/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - med ball warmup, barbell warmup

    Strength - Front Squat - 45/5, 95/4, 135/3, 185/2, 205/2, 235/2x6

    Conditioning -
    AMRAP 7
    5 S2OH 135#
    7 TTB
    9 wall ball 25#
    -> 5 rounds + 12 reps
    3 min rest
    AMRAP 5
    3 S2OH 155#
    5 TTB
    7 wall ball 25#
    5 rounds + 2 reps

    Probably will go to the gym Saturday (snatch day and partner workout!) then we are leaving for vacation in Colorado Sunday morning so I may hit a pool or a CF gym once or twice while there but altitude means it won't be too pretty. It will be good to have a break from work and routine life.

    SHOUT OUT: Trip. This was his "threshold" set. I was merely the rabbit for him to chase. A couple weeks ago he said he was no faster than 2:43 and on the last couple was barely under 2:50. This week: 2:38, then 4 2:39s, another 2:38, and then 2:35. The man brought the hammer down today. Since I am sure he will read this, Trip, know that it is far more rewarding to me to see YOU (and any other training partner) have a great set, than it is for me to have a great set. Thanks for making my day.

    Thursday, 9/27/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Have a three-day team CF competition in Springfield MO this weekend. Excited, have wanted to do this particular competition for like 5 years now but things never worked out. After that, a week of normal, then a week of vacation, then I will have 3 weeks before Ozark SCM Champs. Not sure exactly what my lineup will be, I want to do relays but don't know if there will be good ones to set up. But, I think I will swim 3 weeks as much as possible - 2 good training weeks and then 1 week of taper.
