I'll be following your training to see your progress and how you're liking it. Good luck!
Oh man, that's a lot of pressure knowing someone's watching! I figured writing stuff on here would be good for getting an occasional bored/curious poster to wander in and offer suggestions. Looks like it's already working, heh.
I'll be checking out your training too, the heavy metcons always seemed interesting to me. I tend to stay away from a lot of those CFish metconny workouts because after a few of them my knees start to really wear out and get sore. Years of vball and being too fat have done a number on them! I should work my way back into that kind of thing. The right combo is fun and seems to work pretty well for everyone who keeps the weight and intensity high and the reps low.
Keep working hard and don't slack off on the log!
