I hate Fran but at least today went better (i.e. heavier and faster) than my last glimpse of her went. But circumstances are against me. I have yet to do a prescribed Fran; either novicity, or weakness, or injury has always prevented me when Fran comes around. One day I’ll be ready for Fran, but [...]

Plan HTFU was in full effect this morning as I did two workouts between 6:30 and 8:30 am; first a 5k walk/sprint (on my usual “Montford Crawl” route) and then, at the 7:30 am CFA class, a few sets of heavy Thrusters followed by the Carolina Challenge WOD. It was a lot of work. As [...]

Briefly: today’s skill work was handstands (mine seem to be getting better) followed by a curious, hard to describe WOD (see the description on the CFA webpage) combining box jumps and thrusters in a slow ascending and quick descending ladder. On the WOD I used a 20″ box, 85 lbs on the bar (~70% of [...]

I had a dispiriting workout on Wednesday morning, with a weak performance on the shoulder press and a super slow “Double Jackson,” which was more about mental than physical weakness. But before I rail too much on my “failures” I intend to look at the facts. Training Cycle: New Program Week 4/6 No Alcohol Month [...]

A mixed result on “Our Lady Micah,” but I did use Rx’d weights for Fran (95 lbs, no assistance bands). 3×75 on the Snatch Balance.

I had a good start to the workout week this morning with a new 1 RM PR in Thrusters (140 lbs) and a decent time in a little kettlebell / box step-up ladder called “Box Jump.” I went lighter than last time, but a lot faster: 6:19. It’s good to be alive.
