I am honored to be listed with the names of such great people! I am certainly the low person on that totem pole, but I will be there with energy and enthusiasm! Looking forward to that time!
I am thinking about going.
What, if any, are the requirements for this course (other than paying for it and getting there of course)?
There are no other requirements....
Would it be possible to find out the course schedule for the three days, ie. start/end of the day. Especially for Sunday the 14th, as I am scheduled for a 5 day Pedestrian Collision Investigation class in Allentown, PA Nov 15 to 19. That way I can plan my flights, etc. Thanks!
10AM-4PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday plus any casual hang out and talk/eat time afterwards.
Did last Sat. WOD today:
Form and depth good thru 135#; 145# was doable, but tough to keep good form. Ended with 3x 105#
Had a great time at the colored pencil workshop this week. It's amazing how much you can learn from a gifted instructor. I went from having a strawberry that looked like a rotten tomato to creating two very realistic cat portraits. Colored pencil is an incredibly versatile medium that can range from looking grainy to watercolor soft to ink-like vivid. If Kristy Kutch ever teaches in your area, don't be afraid to attend her workshop. All but two people in this workshop signed up and paid for her 2005 Wisconsin workshop the last day of class - quite a testiment to her teaching ability. I believe she has an upcoming workshop in Vermont...
Monday I did the following motel workout:
Kettlebell deck of cards
Spades = 52# swings
Clubs = 26# military press
Hearts = 36# snatches
Diamonds = 26# pistols
Jokers = 50 26# situps
I learned the hard way that this workout is not one to rush. I was almost to the end of the deck when I pulled the king of spades, jack of spades, nine of hearts followed by the jack of diamonds and I my lower back gave up the ghost during the pistols. I could barely stand up straight the rest of the day. Ouch.
Tuesday I still had plenty of lower back pain, so I left the kettlebells to gather dust. Did the following workout for time:
25 HSPUs (no breaks, but it did hurt kicking up!)
50 door pullups
75 situps (feet anchored by desk in motel room)
Wednesday morning - 25 of Mike Mahler's Body Blasters. From standing position roll onto your back, then quickly roll forward. Hands onto floor and kick your feet out behind so you can do a pushup. Do the pushup then gather you feet under you and repeat. The kick out from the forward roll really kicked my butt.
Finished my "motel workouts" with changing my flat tire Thursday before driving back home...
Did yesterday's WOD ,modified a little bit.
Ring Dips W/ 40#=27
Pull-Ups = 49
I did a little endurance work today to help be prepare for the firefighters physical...possible date is in December.
3 sets of 3 minutes on step mill while wearing 20 lb weight vest
11 walking laps around the indoor track
enjoying the day off. ran a personal best 18.5 min 5k yesterday. not bad for a 215 lb dude.
My body is enjoying the day off. I finally got around to making a sled. Used the wheelbarrel method. Didn't have a harness handy so I hooked my set of rings up to it. The kids enjoyed being dragged around the back yard. Next project - sandbag.
Josh - outstanding run time!
Those pictures of Athena are way too cute. What a great CrossFit mascot!
Kelly: That's an awesome deck of cards workout. I doubt I'd survive it.
I did one today 'cause I hadn't gone online to see "Diane" posted:
Clubs: clean and jerk w/ 95-lb bar
Diamonds: pistols (each leg separately), or side-to-side box jumps
Spades: Squat thrust with backward roll (Steve Maxwell's "deck squat") injected into each one
Jokers: 50 situps, (or toes-to-bar for variety)
Took about 40 minutes to get through all cards . . .
