05/14/11:

10K TT - 1:01:48. Kind of disappointed in my time. But my legs were SCREAMING at me the whole way, and I still have lots of gross gunk in my lungs from my cold. Had to stop a couple of times during the second half to cough up a lung. Reminds me of when I used to be a smoker. Lovely.

05/15/11:

Wanted to do a CF WOD, but I figured with my legs as tired as they were I should just take a rest day. Will roll/stretch before bed. Might hit up the hot tub.

So I've been lurking on your and MaryStella's logs...reading your workouts...and I'm finally going to ask what is probably a stupid question:

What's "WOD" stand for??

"workout of the day", it's a CrossFit thing. I don't do official CrossFit, but Mary does, she's a coach actually. And she was kind enough to set me up with some CrossFit WOD's I can do at my gym. :)

okay wow, life got kind of crazy last week, wasn't online much at all. But it was a deload week for me so I guess the timing worked out.

Anyway, back at it today.

5/31/11:

Ended up working at home so I didn't get weight training in, but I did a running WOD this AM:
2 x 12 min. intervals, 2 min rest between

This evening I'm going to make sure I get in at least 30 min. stretching/foam rolling. I haven't stretched or anything in over a week and I feel really tight and sore.


I'm thinking of getting a pair of push up bars:
http://www.amazon.com/Cap-Barbell-Definity-Push-Holder/dp/B002OEQ50Y/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I38VF5VL0X2A6R&colid=1HVALBLKZYKQO

They were suggested to me in order to increase my ROM. Has anyone used them before?

I haven't used those specifically, but I've used tables, or other objects to serve the same purpose. I'd improvise to save money, but if you do get them, I'm sure it will improve your strength in that area.

How do you use tables? I'm confused. Or do you mean doing incline push ups between two tables? Is it better to do incline push ups rather than use the bars down on the floor?

OHP:
2x5x45
1x3x45
2x5x55
1x6x65
2x10x55
1x6x55 (fail)
2x10x45

Assisted Chins (60 lbs assistance):
6
4
3

Farmer Walks:
3 sets with 50 lb db's

Like coffee tables. They're already pretty close to the floor. I honestly don't know what is better. I get that shaky feeling in my arms and shoulders, so it's doing something. :)

Oh I gotcha! I was thinking kitchen tables, and then I was wondering why you had two. :)
