- Wasn't training with anyone....no one in the gym period.  I am not sure I could have gone heavier on the squats.  The knee felt ok...not great.  I actually took a lot of time doing the strength things.  I ended up straightening up the gym during my rest.  Was kind of distracted.
- The met con was ok, I didn't rush it but also didn't lag on time.  On the last set of burpees I was too close to my gym bag and my food hooked my shoulder harness.  ALL the contents of my bag flew out.  Pissed me off.

OMG I JUST BURNED OUT MY CNS. HELP ME JOE


« Reply #501 on: May 23, 2015, 05:36:18 PM »

Well, its been a while.  So much has happened over the last year.  I am going to just update this thing as my time really isn't going to allow for much more. I am sure it won't thrill many (*cough* Joe *cough*) how I am still training...

So, the 2015 Crossfit Open has come and gone.  Last year I barely cracked the top 500 in the world.  My goal was to make it to the top 200 and qualify for the Masters Qualifier.  There would be a slim chance of making it to the Crossfit Games as only the top 20 out of that 200 get invited to the Games.  Last year it was mostly the endurance that kept me from placing higher.  Getting better at the lifts is a no-brainer, but that also helped.  So, with the Open I got a chest infection the day before workout #3.  It kicked my ass but I still scored fairly well.  Oh, and for those that don't know, the workouts are released on a Thursday at 7pm CST.  You have until the following Monday at 5pm to submit your scores.  I fought hard to get rid of the cold over the next week.  Here comes the Saturday before workout #4 and I was just rolling out my hips and I turned to the side and suddenly there was a sharp pain in my low back.  WTF!?!?!?!?!  I went got treated and managed to get through workout #4 and was surprised at how well I did.  Over the next week my cold came back with a vengeance.  Now I am dealing with low back pain and a cold.  I was in the top 200 at this point.  I was going to be pissed if this kept me back from my goal.  Well, I went to seminar over the weekend before workout #5 and actually picked up a few things that helped me out.  I scored a hell of a lot better than I thought I would have.  I ended up 173 in the world.  

So I had now about 3 - 4 weeks to prep for my Masters Qualifier.  With that you are given four workouts that you have to complete over four days.  The Top 20 move on to the Games.  Well, my bad luck didn't stop.  The weekend before the workouts were released, I had a HUGELY shitty thing happen. I lost my rottweiler Annie.  Was very sudden.  I was just numb all Saturday (4/18).  The next day I wanted to get a small workout in...just to get my mind off of it.  Well, that was not smart as I ended up tearing my bicep.  Just a mid belly tear, but still an injury none the less.  Well, I did it to myself....I deserved it.  So, I did rehab on it all week and was going to make an attempt at the MQ.  I knew I shouldn't be doing it...but still did it.  I did one workout on Friday...the 1rm Snatch.  I had to stop about 20# short of what I thought I could get because i felt a pulling in the bicep.  The next day was a workout that that didn't really involve the bicep and so I completed that one.  I rested on Sunday and then on Monday morning I attempted another workout.  This one was double Jackie with a 65# bar.  May not seem like much but here is the normal workout:

1000m row
50 Thrusters w/45# bar
30 pull ups

So, with this MQ workout you had to do it TWICE and use a 65# bar.  Again, you may think it looks easy...but the thrusters kill you.  My best time is 8:38.   Thats WITH a healthy bicep.  I ended up getting through the first round with doing 5 pullups stepping down...then 5 more...etc.  On the send round at the very end of the pullups I re-injured the bicep.  I called it quits and didn't finish the final workout.  Had I even done ONE REP of the final workout, I would have finished about 112th in the world.  Now, I have technically no placing.  So, its back to off season training.  I am about two weeks in...so I will update two weeks worth over the next few days.  Thanks....

Time - 29:03

- I normally crash hard on the shoulder pressing stuff.  Today I managed to get through them with relative ease.  I broke them into groups of 10 reps.  Made it easier.  Also the Toes to bar were broken up into 10/10 with the 20 reps round and then into groups of 5 reps with the remaining rounds.  I will say that I get VERY annoyed with people who are doing the workout and who are obviously NOT performing all the reps.  I was 3 exercises ahead of two people in the 30 rep round....and suddenly they are finishing about 4 secs behind me at the end.  I do NOT slow down.  I did not crash.  WHY CHEAT??

Well, today was national Crossfit-douche day.  Almost every place does the workout called "Murph".  It is something that most Crossfit gyms do on Memorial day.  "Murph” is a CrossFit "Hero" workout named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005 (remember him from Lone Survivor?). The workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it ‘Body Armor.’ He did it with a 20# vest on.

The workout is :

1 Mile Run
100 Pull ups (strict, kipping, butterfly..whatever you want)
200 Pushups
300 Air squats (i.e. just a bodyweight squat)
1 Mile Run

The reason I call it national Crossfit Douche day is on Facebook you will see SOOOOO many people asking what other people best "Murph time" is....how they plan on breaking it up (or even IF they can break it up)....pictures of the 'rips' on the hands people get (as if its a badge of honor)...the stupid sweat angels after they are done.  Really?  You think thats bad ass?  You were sweaty...big fucking deal.  ANYWAY...I did it, but didn't finish as I had to pick my friend up from the airport from a few days ago.  It was raining out and many complained about it.  Really?  You want to talk all this shit about how tough you are and how bad ass this is going to be and you are bitching about some LIGHT rain??  Ummm...isn't this a workout to HONOR someone in the service?  Hello?  They don't take days off if it rains.  Geezus...some people are annoying as hell.  The first time I did the workout I tried to each thing before moving on to the next exercise. HUGE mistake.  I was left with a HUGE rip in my hand that caused me to back off my training for a week.  I didn't take a pic of it and post on facebook....so don't think that.  Was a good time as there was about 50 - 60 people at the gym (NO I WILL NOT CALL IT A BOX LIKE A CF DOUCHE).  Many weren't members...just friends of members.  THAT is something you won't see with bodybuilding or something else.  Was a great community event.  We did a BBQ afterwards too.  Again, was an ass beating and some nice food and drink.  THAT is what separates the CF community from bodybuilding in my opinion.  Bodybuilding lost that "community" aspect back in the early 90's.  Just my opinion.   Anyway...most will never try something like this and will continue to shit on CF...but hey...I will take this over the oiled up glittery men in trunks fucking grapefruit any day of the week.

Rant over.  Oh, and yes...that was a meltdown.
