This morning I realized I have 2 weeks before heading to Fort Dix for a month. Need to add more running in, but I know myself and running along with lifting at the rate I am now will result in lifting taking priority unless i make myself tone it down for the next 2 weeks.

2 week plan:
1. 2 days of lifting per week, that's it, MP and DL one day, S and BP the other.
2. Limit accessories exercises to 1-2 per lift, probably a counter movement, i.e. MP day = pullups, BP day = rows...etc
3. Abs and Neck every lifting session
4. No conditioning on lifting days
5. Condensed version of Muscular Endurance program from 8 Weeks out, need to concentrate on pushups and this is a good time to test out the method
6. Run - mornings have finally cooled off here, so 3 times a week, alternating between intervals and longer runs. Need to condition my legs/feet again.
7. Conditioning after runs if energy allows - following Rob Shaul Afghan prep program guidelines
8. Mob WODS - every day

That's it for the next 2 weeks, 2 days lifting, 3 days running, maybe 1 day of rucking per week.

After those 2 weeks we'll see what it's like at Fort Dix and the workout situation, i.e. gym access, PT situation...etc

9/5/2010
MobWod - 9/5/2010 - 1 min L/R hips when sitting probably hit this at least 5+ times per side throughout the day, trying to remember to do this at work as well.

Went down to Savannah for for the night and walked around the Historic downtown area, lots of walking.

9/6/2010
Day at Tybee Beach and then home to SC.

MobWOD 9/6/2010
-2minL/R in front rack band position - The ROM was crazy
-1 min exploring the hip before winding it up and going belly button over foot for 1.5 min of hold relax stretching - I don't think I was doing the belly button over foot thing correctly didn't get much out of this one.

I was wondering the same thing. I know I probably would have been laying on the floor at the Y and they really don't like that... Nice job on your DL, programming and the runs.
