This week has been all kinds of up and down in terms of workouts. I am overflowing with confidence, yet my strength numbers are nowhere near where I want them to be. My energy levels have been mostly up, but when they were down they were way down.
Thursday I hit some hill and stair repeats at one of the most incredibly breathtaking spots in the San Mateo area. Friday I got a good deal of tumbling work in and some solid sets of shoulder press. I was able to get 171.5 for a single with not too much struggle. While this doesn't seem like a ton of weight in comparison to my other lifts, but it's good for me and my majorly weak shoulders.
Today's workout was a blast. A handful of us met up at CrossFit San Mateo for some strongman style work.
2 x 50 meter car push, 20 shoulder changes with a log, 10 tire flips, 10 tire jumps
2 x 50 meter car push, 8 tire flips to jump throughs, 20 sledge hammer strikes
I was able to get the first two in 1:28 and 1:26, and the second two in 1:38 and 1:34, all of them all-out sprints. The rest of the group had an awesome mix of times between 1:30 and 2:30 and we all had a great time doing unconventional things in the gorgeous weather. After people shuffled out, Lindsey and I messed around with some of the competition WOD's for the Courage Games 2011 coming up in a week. We have one or two things to test, but everything is looking real good for this thing!
My programming feel right after this week and I expect to just keep working on all my weaknesses and seeing huge gains over this month. I have a huge testing week planned for the first week of March, so we'll see where I stand then!
In insightful articles news, I am working on a couple inspired by my CrossFit Community Month last month, so you can expect a slew of thought-provoking posts coming after this competition is over. Lot's of things to be excited for!
