I’m a fan first.
It’s taken me a bit to understand what truly motivates me about sport.
- I like rooting for others (probably why I like coaching).
- I like being part of a team (others effort inspires me to reach deeper).
- I like having FUN (take this shit too serious and it’s no fun).
Amazingly last years CrossFit Games was the FIRST EVER CrossFit competition I competed in SOLO.
This year will only be the SECOND time I’ve competed as an individual. So both times on the big stage. Shit, I should have entered some comps this year hey? NAH, I’m not sure I even enjoy competing as an individual, crazy right? Let me tell ya what I’ve learned; last year I was way to focused on performing well, put silly pressure on myself. This year I truly can’t wait to enjoy the experience of competing with my fellow athletes. I can’t wait to go root them on! I look forward to watching their efforts and soaking in that inspiration! I can’t wait to go have some FUN!
In case ya haven’t noticed, I grew some chops…the chops are a reminder to have fun and be myself.
Oh and one more thing; this STUFF is way more FUN when you show up in shape.
Well the problem with blogging your training is if you have an effort you’re not happy with ya still gotta write it down!
A. 30 sqcl at 205#
-result; all singles in 8:46-
I paced through the whole thing and never got fired up or treated it as a tester. Last week I got 2 TnG x 15 at 205# in 10:00 so maybe I paced out to only beat that but still, not a killer effort. My first 14 reps were in 4:00, thats :17 a rep, my final pace was :17.5 sec a rep so started to slow/paced too much. Oh well…it’s all training!
B. 9 TnG DL every 2:00 at 255# x 4 sets
Up from 225# last week. Goal here is to build over the next few weeks. Had great speed and strength.

Aerobic intervals with the Prowler: Light load, high turnover. 25 yard push, 50 yard jog, 25 yard push. 20:00 of work, Murphy goes, I go (took about :30-:40 a person) so we might have got 16+ round each. Good Aerobic breathing and effort.
