A Big Dawg Day

In Minnesota, we get a lot of 3 dog nights. This winter has had many.

With Crossfit Brand X, they scale the workouts into sizes of Dogs (dawgs)
Big Dawgs
The Porch
The Pack

I have done a few workouts to standard, but barely. And they take me forever.

Today I did

Five rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
30 Box jump, 24 inch box
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball

Time 33:37

I filled an old basketball with sand and taped it up.

Also, today I did a 12 minute time trial for the Crossfit Endurance workout.

I thought I would give 2 miles a shot on the deathmill, and I succeeded. Yeay. I know it does not count as the road, but it is close enough to give me confidence that I can run that hard for that time. I could have gone faster. Maybe next time.

I have not run back to back 6's in a LONG time, so I am getting psyched.

Tomorrow is "Griff" (supposed to do it Tuesday)
For time:
Run 800 meters
Run 400 meters backwards
Run 800 meters
Run 400 meters backwards

Should be pretty damn funny.

If you blow by me at kettle running backwards, I'm going to have to drop....

Helen, he's far too fast a runner these days for you to insult him that way.

Matt, pulled 6:42 this morning, we might have quite a race on our hands!! Tomorrow I'm doing a workout for you to try...Descending sets of Power Cleans and Jump Burpees. 10 PC's, 10 burpees. 9 PC's, 9 burpees, etc. down to 1 of each...for time. I haven't done PC's in a while so I'll probably go with 135 lbs.

6:42 aint' gonna be good enough. I am going for sub 6:30.

What's this anonymous crap?

Helen....... Ouch.

PC/Burpee workout: 12:54. Could tell I hadn't done much of these exercises in a while...was really gassed.

Hope you can do 6:30, I'll be lucky to go under 6:40. Maybe we'll have to do a 500m and 5K as well to test the whole area. I'm probably looking at just over 1:30 for 500m and about 18:00 for 5k.
