Rest Days \• September 30, 2009
I procrastinate by writing a little blog entry in which I speculate that maybe one of the reasons I am so stressed out these days is because I procrastinate so much.
CrossFit Asheville WODS \• September 29, 2009
The WOD known as “Bear Country” comes back around. 3 rounds of 5 bear complex cycles and max rep pull-ups. Also, Kip-Swings.
Health Reports \• September 27, 2009
I examine my training and nutrition over the past five weeks in the light of my “never on a school night” plan, which I established on August 23rd. The results are mixed, but I seem to be healthy and on track for good things as I move forward with the plan.
Cheat Days \• September 26, 2009
The last WOD of a five week training cycle: L-Sits and a tricky met-con with six different olympic lifts. Next week I get to rest, thank God. Also, another Saturday night on the town leads to an extremely high calorie day, and a couple of different cheat items, and an excess of alcohol.

CrossFit Asheville member Robert turns 40 today. The WOD “celebrates” his joining our 40 and over club. Interrupted sleep (Orion, crying in the basement again, at 3:45, 4:30, and 5:10 am).

CrossFit Asheville WODS \• September 21, 2009
This was a great, high energy day for me. It started with an excellent WOD, continued with good teaching, and then finished off with some anti-malware kung-fu counter-hacking on the CrossFit Asheville Website. Warm-Up Strength: Overhead Squat I concentrated on form and had a good session. Results: 5 x 45 / 5 x 55 / [...]
