The hurricane moved back out over the Atlantic after wrecking Florida. The moisture and clouds from it are working their way in here today. We got one of those outstanding Hurricane sunsets out of it.
Today’s WOD was one that I didn’t feel like I’d get a lot out of, so I did one from long ago. I have a bunch of the older ones saved in my favorites, so I can do them on days like today. I went way heavier and PRed timewise on it to boot.
I am starting my third cycle of 5/3/1 today and the first day up is squat day. I’ve been feeling really good with it. It was time to change things up.
We had a nice fall sunrise this morning.
Last year, my arm/ shoulder was fucked. I found that a lot of the dumbbell stuff made it feel worse, so I took a break. I started back up recently and am already benching the fifties with no discomfort.
It felt great to take the barbell outside for a WOD this afternoon. I’ve been neglecting using that because we’ve been really into the sled work and the sandbag stuff. I decided that it’d be fun to do a sled plus power clean WOD.
It has been a long time coming, but I finally switched my strength program to 5/3/1. I read the first book years ago and was going to try it out then when we were still going to Crossfit, but didn’t.
I guess we were spoiled with it being too hot and humid this summer. The jackass neighbors haven’t been using their fire pit. Guess it was too inconvenient for them. Today was a very nice evening, with the temperature in seventies. It was a great night to relax and watch the Phillies with the doors and windows open. I knew they started their fire when my nose started itching and eyes burning.
Today was the day I would log my thousandth street parking WOD. I wanted to do a partner WOD with Molly to celebrate it, but she wanted to do a sled WOD outside. We made it work.
I had a good night’s sleep. Today is still warm and very humid, but a good bit cooler than it has been. That helped me have a great day lifting early this morning before 9:00 AM. I also did a WOD around lunchtime.
