Row for cals

Touch and go on the snatches, threw the ball to a 10ft target. Felt good.

Today-

Using the template of R27, now add 10 minutes to run near the end of the route, preferably involving a nasty climb. So, your five minutes from your usual finish, run in a different direction for five minutes out and then five minute back and then continue.

I didn't get the nasty climb in. There were plenty in the begining. First 1.5 miles was 10:18, finisher of 3.06 was 21:36, so I went on until 31:26 and got 4.25 miles in. Felt pretty toasty.


5X100m sprints, rest :30 after each sprint, 8X50m sprints, rest :15 after each sprint.

Swam these without a fins but in a mask. The mask makes me hypoxic. My form was poor on this and I'm not sure if I should really go for form and stop trying to race. I haven't yet because I am SO slow.

weighted pull-ups, 65# 2X10
weighted dips, 65# 2X10

Started these with #65 hanging from my waist. My tender areas were under dire threat. I put on the 20# vest and hung the 45#. It worked well. I rested 1:30 between sets.

Default one more thing

Some people tried this at CrossFit RVA today. It seems right up PM's alley:

10 rounds-

1 minute max Clean and Jerk reps.
1 minute rest

The clean is a power clean, the jerk is a split jerk or a push jerk. Go heavy on the loading (i.e. something close to your 5 rep max). Your score is the round with the lowest number of reps.

One guy did 135lbs. He scored a 5.

I'd like to see some of you guys try it.

Weighted 8 foot rope climbs, #12 vest, no feet 2X10

These were not that hard.

"Those burpees suck"
10 pull-ups
20 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 pood
30 24' box jumps
40 push-ups
50 sit-ups
60 burpees

This name is a misnomer. The burpees did not suck. Everything was done unbroken except for the burpees.

Have to go to work so I squeezed this in:

4 rounds

400m run
15 #85 push-presses
15 #85 SDHP

13:50

I did this one about 10 months ago and did it in 23 minutes. Not a bad improvement.

Might row later, might not.
