One Week In

Fell back asleep until almost 8 this morning. Needed it. My abs are sore from the sit-ups Friday night and my legs are sore from all of the activity yesterday. Got up and headed out for a run since I know I won’t want to do it in the rain tonight.

Run Every Day

Went out slow with a 10+ minute mile. It was into the wind. 😉 Couldn’t let my average pace have so many digits so I picked it up on the way back. Went 2.1 miles in 20:46. It said my average heart rate was 136, but the chart shows it spiking hard for the first 0.6 miles and there is no way that’s correct. Steps per minute were in the 170s too, which is becoming normal.

Seven days and over 15 miles, not including any running in workouts, like the 10x200m yesterday. Hopefully my joints get used to the running or this may not last the entire month.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Thrusters – 45 & 95#

Death by Thrusters

With a continuously running clock…

  • 1 Thruster in the first minute
  • 2 Thrusters in the second minute
  • 3 Thrusters in the third minute
  • … until failure

* 115/75#

I forgot I’ve done this before. It was a long time ago, in September of 2012, when I got 7+7. Today I went through the round of 8 unbroken for an easy PR and it didn’t feel bad. Then I think I went 5-4, 5-5 (or maybe 4-3-3?), 4-4-3, 4-4-4, and 3-3-2-2. It all blurs together. I finished 12 minutes and got 10 in the 13th. It started to get pretty terrible in rounds 9 and 10.


6 Rounds

  • 15s MU + L-sit
  • 15s Rest

Ended up being about 12 seconds in the L-sit each time. Was really feeling it by the end and the last muscle-up wasn’t easy.


3:00 AMRAP

  • Buy-in: 400m Run
  • Burpees

Rest 3:00, then…

  • # Burpees from AMRAP
  • 400m Run

* Can you finish in 3:00?

Came up with this little gem early in the week. Sounded challenging but doable. I managed 26 burpees, which got pretty slow after 10. Had a good pace doing them the second time and then tried to push the run. Finished in 2:57!

Fun & Dirty

No set plan, we got out the tires and flipped them around a bunch.
