Good day today. Today had a buy-in, which was 50 pistols on each leg, but I managed them with the green band (blue band at CFP; it’s all very confusing: this one is 2″ or thereabouts), BUT, I used it horizontal instead of vertical around the squat rack. I didn’t do every single one perfectly, but it was better than previous efforts. Then, on to the WoD, which was Annie:

50-40-30-20-10

-Double unders
-Sit-ups

Got it in 9:43 Rx’d, which is 45 seconds faster than my last PR. Yay!

Finished with some handstands and stuff.

Killah Annie, Lousy Barbara

It’s weird; when I have a good lifting day, I have bad metcon, and when I have a bad lifting day, I have a good metcon day. I wonder if that happens to anyone else. Wednesday, I had a terrible front squat day:

45×5
95×5
105×5
115×5
125×3(F)

Wha?

But I finished with a new PR on an Rx’d Annie:

50-40-30-20-10
-Double unders
-Sit-ups

I nailed that in 10:28, beating my last PR by over 30 seconds.

Today was the opposite. I actually had a pretty good press, approaching the numbers I was getting before the triathlon threw everything:

45×5
65×5
75×5
80×5
85×5
90×3(F)

Although the last was technically a fail, I prefer to fail at 90 than at 85. Then I finished with an attempt at a four-round Barbara, 4 rounds of 20 pull-ups, 30 push-ups, 40 sit-ups, and 50 squats. For some reason the first round (done with under-bar rows) just did me in. I don’t know why. I slept like crap last night and didn’t really want to be there, so maybe that was the problem, and I definitely was running out of time. But that was it. Suck.

Annie, Thrusters

Posted in annie, competition, fran, overhead squats, presses with tags , , , , on March 25, 2012 by coughingsparks

Friday I did an attempt at a 1RM press, which was not as good as I had hoped:

45×5
65×3
75×3
80×2
85×2
90×1
95×1
100×1
105×0(F)
105×0(F)

Oh well. But I killed Annie, like blew it out of the water, as Rx’d:

50-40-30-20-10
-Sit-ups
-Double unders

Did it in 11:03 which beats my PR by about a minute and a half. Who knew? I did the sit-ups unbroken, and my abs were very sore yesterday.

Yesterday, did an OHS, which was an attempt just to get back into it because I never do them any more and I used to be pretty good:

45×5
65×5
75×5
75×5

That was a good start. I finished with CFNYC’s 12.5 prep, which was five rounds of AMRepsAP, one minute on, one minute off of:

-Thrusters 95#/65#
-Chest-to-bar pull-ups

I got through one round and had to go and change K’s diaper. Aaaargh!! At least it was only one round. So I had to start over again, and I got:

Thrusters: 17-13-15-13-13 (71)
Pull-ups: 5-5-4-4-4 (22)

I was somewhat strategic about the pull-ups because I would do as many as I could at the start, one at 30 seconds, and one at, like, 55. So my total was 93.

I scaled it, but not like I normally do. I did regular pull-ups. Really.

So don’t miss

Horrible day today, rushed to get to the gym, started out in a terrible mood, and had a crappy OHS:

45×5
65×5
75×5
75×5

Finished by adding 51 seconds onto Annie, making 14:51:

50-40-30-20-10
-double unders
-sit-ups

Just couldn’t get a good run of DUs except once but mostly it was 2 at a time. Also, because I was missing so much, my arms got all cut up by the rope and I had to wear long sleeves at work so my patients didn’t think I was a self-mutilator. Blergh.

Annie as Rx’d

Posted in annie, front squats with tags , on November 10, 2011 by coughingsparks

Today I went back to 5×5 front squat, which was OK but not record-breaking:

45×5
75×5
85×5
95×5
105×5
105×5

Eh, at least I got 105 twice. Went on to Annie, which was today’s CFNYC WoD:

50-40-30-20-10
-Double unders
-Sit-ups

Did it as prescribed in 14:00, glacial really, but AS RX’D! My worst time ever, but only by 19 seconds.

Big Lifting Day

Posted in annie, cleans, overhead squats, presses with tags , , , on October 12, 2011 by coughingsparks

I did a lot of lifting today, not knowing what the next two days will bring, exercise-wise. I started with a 5×3 OHS:

45×5
55×3
60×3
65×3
65×3
70×3

70 is actually a new PR, so that was good, although it was a scary set. I went on to a 5×3 press, which was:

45×5
65×3
70×3
75×3
80×3
85×3

Also a new PR, there. So far so good. Went on to do 5×3 full power cleans, which was so-so:

65×3
75×3
85×3
85×3
85×3

It was like anything else: some were good and some not so much. I wrapped up with the slowest scaled Annie I have ever done:

50-40-30-20-10
-Double unders (3x singles, actually)
-Sit-ups

Did it in 10:47, but at least my sit-ups were unbroken, slow though they were, and I kept missing with the jump rope, which was frustrating. Oh well; no where to go but up, I suppose.
