Eleven Years

That’s how long I’ve been blogging.

Saturday, July 13

Run to Michigan Ave & back before each round
10 dl @ 225
9 @ 245
8 @ 265
7 @ 285
6 5 @ 295

Uhm, I had intended to make it down to singles, but I didn’t set my back before 5th rep @ 295 and pulled a muscle. I’m fine, so no need to fret. I rested and continued

10 RFT & reps
Run to turn of Meadow (70 or so m, 140 total)
Max reps strict & unbroken HSPUs

I began with 11, completed 8, 7, 6, 6, 5, 5, 5, 4, & 5 reps for a total of 62 reps.

Sunday, July 14

Just five months until my birthday. I like the color orange. I hate the orange president. Detest, abhor, loathe.

AFAP for reps, accumulating no fewer than 50 pull-ups
Row 250m
Max rep strict & unbroken pull-ups

~Rest~

AFAP for reps, accumulating no fewer than 100 K2E
Run to end of driveway and back
Max rep strict & unbroken K2E

Fifty-two pull-ups and 103 K2E. The fewest K2E I completed was 7, and that was only the second to last round of 11 total rounds.

Monday, July 15

9RFT
9 strict burpee + strict T2B
9 box steps & box steps with opposite leg knee raise, r then l (1 rep)

Try it. It’s not as easy as it appears. Box steps with knee raises make for a very nice ass. You’re welcome.

When I count I do so musically. That makes sense to me.

Tuesday, July 16

I briefly considered resting. Ha!

AFAP
100 kipping pull-ups

~Rest~

AFAP
100 mountain climbers

~Rest~

AFAP
25 presses, 75#

Monday was a helluva lot of pushing, so today was pulling (with some pushing recovery).

I didn’t miss a single rep of pull-ups, ensuring that chin did indeed go above the bar.

I’ve started to watch Fleabag. Hilarious!

I was delighted that Niecy Nash got an Emmy nod for “When They See Us.”

CB & AVL

I’m like the Flex. So spacious!

I enjoyed Stranger Things 3 and finally finished OITB season 6. Both were very satisfying.

Uhm, I worked out Friday and Saturday, and can’t recall what I did when. So there’s that.

10 RFT
1 strict pull-up
2 HRPUs
3 med ball cleans, 30#

1-2-3…13-14-15 shuttle sprints (10m up & back) & burpees; complete 5 strict pull-ups at the end of each round

100 K2E

1-2-3…13-14-15 shuttle sprints (10m forwards & 10m backwards); complete 5 K2E at the end of each round

Back to Asheville. Yay! I love the mountains.

Tuesday, July 9

7 RFT
Row 250m
5 pull-ups
10 pushups
15 air squats
20 Abmat sit-ups
20 Abmat back extensions

What a gasser! I truly sprinted the rows, completing each round in 22 strokes.

Wednesday, July 10

50 RFT
Pushup to plate + pushup l-hand on plate + pushup r-hand on plate (45#)
Plate press
Back squat w plate + behind the neck press
Box jump w plate (28″)

I dreamt that I did a similar workout. I had planned on 25 rounds, then decided (during workout, of course) to do 35, then 45, then 50. I didn’t want to do any more. I. Was. Done.

May the fourth be with you

I continue to get the Carolina Beach garage gym up and running. I purchased a new barbell, a set of used Rouge Hi Temp plates (45, 25, 15, & 10), clips, and a floor mat.

Wednesday, July 3

10 RFT
Odd-numbered rounds: 1 strict HSPU + 5 HPC + PP l arm, 5 r arm, 5 both arms (30# DBs)
Even-numbered: I strict HSPU + 10 BoR l arm, 10 l, 10 both


~ Rest~

5 min AMRAP
I strict burpee w hands on DBs
Twisting jump over DBs
1 strict burpee w DB DL

I didn’t get plates until later in the day; thus, no barbell workout. And that’s okay. I did get to use my new abacus.

Thursday, July 4

Jeff, Luke, and I spent the morning on the beach. ‘Twas a beautiful way to begin the day. We then went shopping for beach cruisers.

AFAP
Rounds 1 – 5: 1 strict burpee w strict HSPU + 1 DL @ 200# + 5 Abmat sit-ups
Rounds 6 – 10: 1 strict burpee w strict HSPU + 2 DL + 5 Abmat sit-ups
Rounds 11 – 15: 1 strict burpee w strict HSPU + 3 DL + 5 Abmat sit-ups
Rounds 16 – 20: 1 strict burpee w strict HSPU + 4 DL + 5 Abmat sit-ups
Rounds 21 – 25: 1 strict burpee w strict HSPU + 5 DL + 5 Abmat sit-ups
Rounds 26 – 30: same with 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10 DLs

Total of 30 burpee + HSPU, 115 DLs, & 150 sit-ups. That was grueling.

Friday, July 5

An overcast and very moist day at the beach. Luke and I began our day with a 2.5-mile walk at Carolina Beach State Park.

Today was all strength that, well, often felt like conditioning.

EMOM 5
TNG rounds @ 65, 75, 85, 95#
5 BoR
5 HPC
Clean

Rest as needed between rounds

Then single rounds @ 105, 115, 125, 135, 145#

I need chalk, as the knurling is quite rough. Well over 100 BoR and HPC. Whew!

Watched the first episode of Season 3 of Stranger Things.
