I only got 10 minutes

I had to plead with Luke to get him to get out of the car. He's spoiled!

It’s been somewhat of a grueling week at CFS. I’m pleased that athletes are enjoying the programming — and staying injury-free.

I’m abulous, but even my abdominal muscles were sore after completing GHD sit-ups and strict toes through rings. Therefore I somewhat rested yesterday. What’s that mean, exactly? I didn’t complete any conditioning, but, as Jannicka and Fanny were kind enough to allow me to do so, I joined them for strength.

Strength
Bench press
5 @ 75%, 3 @ 85%, & 1 @ 95% of 1RM

I completed lifts @ 120, 135, & 155#. For whatever reason, bench presses have felt wonderful, and today was no exception. Thanks for spotting me, Jannicka!

I’m somewhat OCD. I spent the morning rearranging the medicine and slam balls and cleaning the box, including scouring the Abmats.

Jannicka and Emily met to complete the barbell challenge. I decided to join them, although I significantly modified the workout.

Conditioning
60 BS

50 push jerk
40 FS
30 push press
20 press
10 OHS

I completed in the reverse order and I lifted a mere 45#. I treated this as a fast metcon and thus set my goal to complete in fewer than 10 minutes and did so in 9:49.

No spoiler altert as the following is not tomorrow’s programmed metcon.

Conditioning
5 RFT
Row 150m
10 unbroken thrusters (65#)
6 unbroken chest to bar pull-ups

Unbroken thrusters and chest to bar pull-ups weren’t a goal, they were a requirement. My only goal was to complete in fewer than 10 minutes and I did so in 9:53.

That. Was. Tough.

Yup, it’ll be included in an upcoming WOD.
