Default Mike's Hybrid log

Figured I could use this log to track my progress, originally posted it on CF forum then realized it belongs here. Some beginning stats: 33 year old male, 5'9" tall, 175 lbs, Air Force ALS Instructor. Minimal sports background, been a garage Crossfitter for about 9 months, mostly making up my own WOD's. I run the PT program @ ALS where we do a scaled version of CF w/ minimal equip. Decided to follow dot.com last week, then changed my mind after reading Gant Grimes' thread. I'm fickle, so we'll see where this thread goes...
