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.
It was another hotter than hell day today, but thankfully the air conditioner works well. I got my lifts in and everything felt pretty good. The bench felt better than I expected, after last time.
I had a good night’s sleep last night, then I got up feeling pretty good. I had a good morning for my lifting, with everything feeling really great. A little while later I did a WOD and challenged myself with it.
I felt good this morning, so I decided that it seemed like it was a pretty good time to try a WOD with heavier weights than I typically use. The rep count was pretty low, so I figured why not?
It was another hot day, but thankfully we have the air conditioner installed. My lifts weren’t anything heavy today, but they felt good.
I have been thinking about picking up a weighted vest for years. I didn’t know how it would work for me, and they were pretty pricey, so I never did until I saw one cheap on Amazon. Today it arrived, and I tried it out, and it was a good pickup.
