Controlled Falling

Got moving pretty late this morning, but still made it to 9am, even though it was a few minutes late. I’ve never been late to a class. Legs are pretty tight today, either from the thrusters on Sunday or back squats yesterday.

Shoulder Press

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95#
  • 5×115#
  • 3×125#
  • 7x5x135#

Phew! Somehow made it through all the sets again.


5:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • 10 American KBS (53#)

All unbroken for 5 rounds plus the 10 wall balls. Got to the kettlebell, but didn’t get it locked out in time for a rep.

Rested 2:00, then…

5:00 AMRAP

  • 5 Curtis P (95#)
  • 5 Burpees

Ugh, damn barbell. Finished 3 rounds and with only about 8 seconds left I didn’t pick up the bar.

At 6:30 I attended a running technique class. Dan recorded us, talked about running form, had us do a bunch of drills, and then recorded us again. My main problem was running too much on my toes, which is what I’ve always thought running on my midfoot. Apparently not. But at least I don’t heel strike like the majority of people. Felt weird to try landing more back on my foot. I’ll have to continue to think about it as well as concentrating on the lean, which I’ve already been trying to work on.

Started feeling my hamstrings a lot more in the afternoon and at night. I’m surprised I could run at all with my quads tight from thrusters and squats and now my hamstrings from the deadlifts.
