Hey Trent...I'm glad to see you over here too man.  It looks like you got some good work in the other day as usual.  Hopefully you are staying warm in all of that cold weather you're getting. :)

Solid work TM!  That accessory work would have me laying on the floor in a puddle.  Yep, pretty sure I'd pass out.  Maybe toss my cookies too.
Thanks so much!  I try to step on the gas a little. ;)

Welcome to IS Mr. Trent! Great session buddy!
Thanks Shawn!  Great to be here!

Holy crap dude that's a lot of work in a short time. I'd be sucking wind through my a$$hole for sure. Nice work.
Thanks so much!

Thanks Greg.  We managed to get a lot of rain while everyone around us got snow.  ::)

Comments:  Well, this is the last week of this cycle so I'm going for broke.  Doing reps of 7 and am combining Squat/DL with OHP/PU again as I have four straight days of hard work in the field starting tomorrow.  I may throw a short metcon in there over the next few days, but work will easily serve as conditioning too.  Just one more week of work and it's vacation time!

Squat:  Felt good for these.  Strong sets and good depth.  Finished with 3 sets at program weight.

Deadlift:  My toes were numb during these sets.  Freakin' cold out here...  I was going to stop at 255, about 20 lbs less than my "program weight", but ended up working my way up to one set at my program weight.  That was a particularly huge victory for me as I haven't done any program sets in probably six months, since my injuries. 

OHP/Pull-ups:  Felt very strong on these for a change.  Good sets.

Accessory:  Tried to do 40% of (estimated) 1 rep max for all of these.  Definitely challenging.  It's pretty bad when GHD sit-ups are your break...

Intervals/Sprints:  This was supposed to have a minute of running between each movement but I took it out as I was running low on time.  Still pretty tough. 

Well, BOGO again this Sunday.  Just Bench and Rows left to do this week at some point.  I will try to do a short metcon sometime in the next few days before that.  I will, of course, finish it off with a run next weekend.  Hope you all have a great day and I apologize again for my absense in your journals.  Life is busy right now.

Forgot to post this one from Saturday:

Conditioning:  Distance Run, Indoor, Treadmill
5K, 24:35, 8:00 Pace, 495 Calories, 315 Feet Elevation Gain

Comments:  It is 34 degrees and raining right now so I hit the treadmill for my run.  Everyone around us got half a foot of snow, but we held strong in the "rain peninsula" and get to enjoy the mud instead of the snow.  ::)  I decided to do a pretty fast pace on this one and am feeling it.  Got it done though.

Conditioning: Metcon

White

4 rounds for time of:
15 Pull-ups with knees to elbows (sub for 3 rope climbs)
10 Toes-to-bars
21 Overhead walking lunge steps, 25-lb. plate
Run 400 meters

Post time: 21:40

Comments:  Well, I think this is four Mondays in a row now that I've woken up around 3:30AM and not ever really gotten back to sleep.  Oh well, I will be on vacation for the next THREE Mondays so the end is in sight...  I ended up getting out of bed at 5:00AM and made my way out to the 28 degree garage.  I've got a pretty challenging day in the field at work and am a little sore from yesterday's session, but am going to try and get a metcon in.  A hero metcon from crossfit nonetheless...

Metcon:  Managed to break a sweat out here in this cold, dark garage.  Subbed 15 pull-ups with knees to elbows for 3 rope climbs.  I subbed a 25 lb plate for the walking lunges.  I have a surfboard hanging from the ceiling that prevents me from doing proper OH Lunges so half of those reps were at sort of a mid press with my elbows flexed (to not ding the surfboard).  I had to stop after four rounds as I'm out of time.  Definitely had that fifth round in the tank though.

Please forgive me for not being more active in your journals.  I'm slammed right now but will catch up as soon as I can.  Time to go hang off the side of a building for a few hours.  Ha ha...  Have a great day folks!

You're spiderman?  :o  ;D

Metcons looking tough as always Trent.  Enjoy the weather.  I'll take snow over rain personally.  I'm looking out my window at a nice dusting right now.
