My recent birthday goals:
Hit 1 min. free handstand hold on the floor - 9/4
5 second straddle planche hold, got 6 seconds on 9/10

Completing CFN skill level 3 is my mission for the end of the year.

MOD- you'll have to come up here to Portland and we'll go on a microbrewery tour.....

Been sidelined for a month or so. Most recent PR was 100kg C&J back in August.

I'm shooting for 1.5 BW C&J (about 10kg to go) and 91k snatch by year's end. More importantly, will attempt a PR at the all-you-can-eat sushi place near my parent's house. I'm cleaning house.

~65 pieces of sushi/sashimi (mostly sashimi) at the all-you-can-eat joint -- this was the first time I actually kept count.

Probably could have broken triple digits had I also not consumed several plates of mixed greens and raw vegetables.

Talking about weird PRs last night i managed to train so hard that my tongue cramped up.

Tonight was a bit better, sporting my brand new "Camp Victory Kettlebell Club" T shirt from Iraq I managed a PR double in the power clean 105kg/230# and PR doubles in the push press (3x2 @ 90kg/200#)

Derek - are you going to run a 5k race around thanksgiving?
If so - let me know. I'd love to join and a couple of our athletes have been talking about running a 5k.

Last time it was 21:40 with completely dead legs. Going to shoot for 20:30 or even sub 20 this time around!

Leo,

Here you go. My family runs this race every year. My grandmother might even walk it. It is a great flat, out and back course with lots of overhanging oaks.

Here are my results from last years race

10 / 76 / 422 Derek Simonds 36 Deland FL 24:51 (time on gun) 8:00 (Pace) 24:26 (chip time)

Super cool.

May be we'll just shut the gym down and tell everyone that WOD is 5k run

May be even a CF in the Blue Springs park 10 to noon or so!

I definately want to race!
