    Happy Friday kids, hope all is well. @gam3rguy, what an upcoming schedule. Love it. I had nothing but varied bench press with an AMRAP at 80%. I also AMRAP at 70% with deadlifts. Needless to say this ole girl is sore. My youngest turned 18 today. Time does fly. Have a great weekend kids. Keep up the AWESOME work.

    I can't do "real" pushups anymore, either. Arthritic wrists and elbows plus being less strong because I'm 51. Here is a substitute: Place hands on wall in front of you, back your feet away as far as seems reasonable and push "up" off the wall. You'll just do more reps to make up for the lowered resistance.

    @gam3rguy - Love your OCR schedule. That's a LOT of racing. And the Spartan Beast is held at Killington, isn't it?
    I'm guessing that will be a long "fun filled" day. :) Have you raced it before? What is the time limit for completion?
    Killington is correct. This will be my first time there. The time limit is finish before they close the mountain. Lol. I think in Jersey you have till 9 pm. So, depends on start time.

    Didn't post it Friday, but that day was back/bi's day. Decided to throw in shrugs as well, as they are a pulling motion of a sort. Always a good day when you finish and mark in your log to INCREASE the work for next workout. :-)

    When I saw that entry and realized it was held at Killington, I remembered comments from friends who did the race and underestimated the significant cardio fitness required to travel up and down the mountains for half a day.

    With your consistent training, I'm sure you're going to spank that course! :)

    Weighed in today. Scale steady but I'm down a size, so recomp is happening. I'm having some gut pain today and until I figure out what it is, I'm going to rest.

    Hi all. Did a version of crossfit yesterday. It was good. Certainly got a sweat on. Then curled for just shy of two hours. I can feel that I am getting stronger; my arms were not nearly as tired sweeping as they were 2 weeks ago. :)

    Two days ago I spent National Bench Press Day (aka Monday) under a squat bar doing leg day instead. No wait times, and almost no DOMS. Score!

    Unfortunately, my lower back is reminding me about that one set of deadlifts where my form broke down. Phooey. Not severe pain, more of a discomfort, but a good reminder to do things right in the future.

    Another reminder I got on Monday was the lesson being wary of comparisons. As in, do not compare yourself to others, but against yourself. While I was in the squat rack, a young woman half my age and half my weight set up in the next rack over and worked her way up to not only squatting with the same bar weight I was using, but with a deeper dip (I go thighs parallel to ground, she was hips to ankles). The old me from a decade ago would have felt compelled to immediately up my own weight, despite the fact I was doing sets of ten and she doubles. But the more mature me just applauded her set, then went right back to what I was doing, lifting a heavier weight than my last squat day and being happy about it.
