145 lb x 2
150 lb x 2
155 lb x 2

And then we got a call...

It sucked! :lol: I hate running. And I hate running in the cold. Although I must admit I'm not hating it as much as used to. When I started CF, I would DREAD the days where running was part of the WOD. I almost don't care now. Almost...

Haha. Glad to see you aren't dead or something. :lol: Sometimes I would see your log on my list of "followed topics" or whatever, and wonder what happened to you.

Not quite dead...but I started my clinical rotations and dropped off the face of the earth as I learned to balance life with an 80 hour work week! Everything's under control now...I think. Hehe.

Yeah, but the only games showing on FoxSC is Madrid vs. Tottenham, and Inter Milan vs. Schalke. And ESPN2 isn't showing any of them, which is unusual. Shite. :evil:

04/05/2011
Warm up:
3 rounds of -
5 ring dips (red band)
5 pistols (used rope for support)
5 hand stand push ups (small range of motion)
5 kipping pulls ups (touched the floor after each one :( )

WOD:
Part 1
4 rounds of -
Row 150 M
12 unbroken barbell Thrusters (45 lbs)
7 pull ups (used green band)
90 secs rest
Total Time - 8:37 not including rest periods

Part 2
10 minutes to find max load for x1 Power clean into x5 unbroken Thrusters
Load -
65 lbs
85 lbs
95 lbs

Maybe could have gone a little heavier, but the fatigue was setting in and my form was bound to be getting sloppier.

Surprisingly, doing this second part after already being tired was pretty fun. Endorphines kicking in, I guess. Felt like a beast :lol:

@Carrie - When I first started, I would see people doing handstands, and I'd think I could never do that. Not to mention HSPU's. But it just takes practice, practice, practice. I get better every time and closer and closer to a full range HSPU.

@JB - :lol: Thanks for the update. I'm glad Drogba finally ended his dry spell in the Stoke game. I was getting worried about him.
