This Week - The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

I decided to be more cliche today, hence the title.

From this week:

The Good
1 - Completed this workout
For time:
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound
25 L Pull-ups
40 Wall ball shots, 20 pound
20 L Pull-ups
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound
15 L Pull-ups
20 Wall ball shots, 20 pound
10 L Pull-ups
I did this at a Bally's in Brookfield, WI. I had a lot of strange looks. Took 31 minutes

2 - Got to run with the Lapham gang on a fresh 8-12" blanket of snow.

3 - Did the squat workout on Wed with no problems.
Resting 60 seconds between sets:
Back squat 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2

The Bad
1 - See #1 above. It got ugly really quick. I finished, but it gone bad.

2 - See #2 above. I got dropped, or as they say it at Lapham "#%@&$#*", at the top of the peak. Jeff and Robert left me hanging out to dry (the squats from that morning caught up to me, as well as the extra 1/2 hour with Todd E.).

3 - Failed "Stephen" on Monday.

30-25-20-15-10-5 rep rounds of:
GHD sit-up
Back extension
Knees to elbow
95 pound Stiff legged deadlift

Made it to 7 reps on the Knees to elbow on the 25 rep set, and was done. Was dizzy and gone for about an hour.

4 - Only made it 2 rounds on this one.
Five rounds for time of:
Row 500 meters
135 pound Power clean, 12 reps
95 pound Thruster, 15 reps

And, I scaled down the clean to 95 pounds on the second round.

The Ugly
1 - See #1 above. I was a sad heap tredging through that snow at the 2 hour mark.

2 - See #2 above. It got ugly in the end. 2 reps on the pull ups and then a short break.

3 - #3 above. Knees to elbow are not fun.


I was asked why I spend more time running with the Lapham gang than any of my fellow Minnesotans'.

The answer is simple.

With my job, I actually have more business in WI than I do in MN. When I am on the road, it is easy to go out for a fun run if I don't have to work with customers. When I am traveling a lot, it is hard to bail on the family when I am home.

I will start venturing out in March.


Entering Zumbro tonight.

Game on

So long as your with us for the Border Battle(s) we don't mind... plus, you can bring back all the WI training secrets :)

Zumbro... less than 2mths away! No bother with the workouts you're doing.
