It’s a “Novel” Approach

It’s been more than a hot minute since I’ve composed a blog. Much has happened in the recent past. Back squat PR, Friday 5Ks, crawler came off wall and I nearly died, nominated for teaching award, trained First Time Manager and Presentational Speaking at Triangle Insights Group, secured additional training engagements, yada, yada, yada.

Sunday, March 25

As Jeff has spin class Sunday mornings, Luke and I went for a walk by ourselves. I listened to a conversation in Spanish offered by DuoLingo. I’m up to the 31st podcast of Coffee Break Espanol. Yo estudio Espanol. Si? Si.

Strength
Push Press
Complete 1 rep exactly every 90 seconds, increasing weight by no less than 5# & no more than 3 attempts at any weight
Then
Establish 2, 3, & 5RM (in that order)

I began at 115, and completed reps @ 125, 135, 145, 155, 160, 165, & 170 (PR). I barely missed all 3 attempts @ 175.

With the clock no longer running I rested as long as I needed to but likely no longer than 2 minutes. I completed 2 reps @ 155, 3 @ 150, & 5 @ 145, all 5# PRs.

Uhm, it’s more difficult to attempt 2, 3, & 5RM when arms are already tired.

Conditioning
55 RFT
6-count burpee + 45# plate press + 27# box jump (plate placed on box)

Uhm, I completed 100 6-count burpee + K2E just yesterday. I love burpees. I enjoyed today’s workout as well. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?

Time = 16:35

I completed my novel today! I composed 50,000 words in 30 days, and feel quite accomplished. My memoirs shall never be published. I may continue writing…
