Wednesday, June 18
School is out for the summer, members are on vacation, and it’s hard to know how many folks are going to attend any given session. I coached the 9:30 session, and only Coach Emily and Alexus were in attendance. I asked permission to join them, they kindly granted permission, and I did just that.
Establish press 1RM
Establish max reps unbroken strict pull-ups
I attempted 140, 5# more than 1RM, and was unable to complete lift. Dammit. I decreased weight to 137# and attempted twice. Dammit. I came this close. Dammit, dammit, dammit. (That’s a “dammit” for each attempt.)
I forgot to tell Emily and Alexus to complete pull-ups. Read on.
3, 4-minute rounds: rest 1 minute between rounds
Alternate through the following activities, completing 5 reps at the top of each minute:
Bent over rows
Complete maximum rep lateral bar hops in remaining time
Score = lateral bar hops
Nicholas had completed 624 reps and challenged me to better his score. Game. On.
I can’t find the piece of paper that I used to record reps each round. I completed 733 lateral bar hops. That’s a lot of f@cking lateral bar hops, folks.
We had just completed metcon when I remembered that we hadn’t completed pull-ups. I could barely keep a grasp on the bar because I was sweating so profusely. I completed 12 strict and unbroken reps.
I joined the Wednesday endurance athletes for fartlek workout. ‘Twas much fun. I recall Laurie saying, “You’re fast.” Haha! I suppose I am.

I joined the 6am Boot Campers for 5-minute plank. Not much of a challenge — unless Luke is trying to get you to play with him. He’s such a good boy!

See what I did there?
The plural of “fly” is “flies,” not “flys”.
