I just couldn’t resist…

photoThe day started off slow, as only 4 folks, including Jeff, attended the 6 am session. Three new folks began the 7 am Boot Camp. Chris F. recently passed his Level 1 cert., and he was kind enough to to assist with the 7 am and coach the 8:30 am session. Thanks, Chris! Four athletes attended the 8:3o session, which is par for the course. I just used a golf expression. I don’t know what a par is.

Then it happened: 18, 10, & 17 attended the 11:45, 5:15, & 6:30 sessions. Wow.

But enough about Surmounties, it’s time to talk about me, me, me! I worked out after 1 pm, completing tomorrow’s programmed metcon. It’s a tough one.


Cleans @ 65% of body weight, 95#
Dead-lifts @ 125% of bodyweight, 185#
Box jumps, 30″

I didn’t at all enjoy this. Everything felt very, very heavy and/or high. My goal was to complete all rounds of reps unbroken. Sadly, I didn’t drop under the bar fast enough on the 7th rep of the first round. Time 9:10. There are going to be some faster times posted tomorrow, and this makes me happy.

Prior to coaching a make-up Foundations session, I completed today’s metcon.

14-min AMRAP
0-2 — pull-ups
2-5 — pushups
5-9 — Abmat sit-ups
9-14 — air squats

This was the most fun I’ve had in quite some time, and I only wished that it had lasted longer. I kid you not.

I completed 20 unbroken pull-ups and then another 22 for a total of 42. I wasted time writing down reps, but I didn’t trust myself to count up.

I completed 25 unbroken pushups and then another 52 for a total of 77.

I completed 110 unbroken Abmat sit-ups. In other words, I didn’t rest at any time during the 4 minutes.

I completed 100 unbroken air squats, and then completed the remaining in sets of 25 until time ran out. I completed 196.

Total score = 425. Yo. I almost forgot the “yo”.
