No C in Momrik!
No C in Momrik!
Minutes before the workout I tweaked my back for the second time in a week, so I’m thrilled with this score.
19.4 in San Diego!
Same score I got in 2016.
Nice even 300.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for a used Concept2 rower over the last few years. Yesterday one finally came up at a good price, so I drove 30 minutes over to Midland and picked it up. What better day to break it in than during today’s winter storm, so I brought it in to the living room.
Yeah… I’m going to loving having this at home.
I checked the computer and it only had 13,520 lifetime meters on it! To put that in perspective, I rowed 2,500 meters in my first workout, so the machine is essentially brand new.
I enjoy creating workouts, or what we call metcons, short for metabolic conditioning, in CrossFit. I’ve been programming our Sunday workouts for several years and I’d estimate over 75% of the metcons we do are original creations pulled from my list of ideas.
Here are some of the workouts I haven’t used yet. If you try any of them, let me know how they go.
Each year I tend to watch a lot during the holiday break. This year it started a year and one day after sharing the Ocean’s 8 trailer. I was browsing iTunes movies and rented it as soon as I saw it. Exactly what you’d expect from the Ocean’s movies. Cool that there was some character carryover between the movies too.
On Christmas day I watched a few movies on Hallmark Channel with Mom. All very predictable and heartwarming. They were Christmas Made to Order, It’s Christmas, Eve, and Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa.
When I’m sick, I usually tune in to some type of marathon, because I can fall asleep and not care about missing anything. The Incredible Dr. Pol is a fascinating show about a veterinarian right here in central Michigan. I’ve seen so many calves delivered I’m pretty sure I could do it myself.
One night I was browsing movies on Netflix and Wind River caught my eye. I liked it and thought it was one of the best Jeremy Renner performances I’ve seen.
Tiger Woods: Return of the Roar on ESPN got me pumped for the upcoming golf season and reminded me how lucky we are to experience this comeback. 2019 could be something very special.
To close out my vacation I watched Mission: Impossible – Fallout last night. I almost went to see it when it was in theaters so it’s been on my watch list for a while. It was enjoyable.
I also watched countless videos on YouTube, but that’s the norm.
You know what I didn’t watch? A single play of college football. It was great.
Seven years ago I did my first CrossFit workout, was destroyed in less than 7 minutes of a scaled “Cindy,” and I was hooked. Over the years I’ve changed my approach many times, done a lot of add-on programs, and worked out in a lot of different gyms. Here are seven things I’ve learned.
Over the last year and a half, the tweak to my back, really changed my perspective and goals. I want to keep doing this because it makes me feel good and is a healthy life. This quote by Pat Sherwood sums it up…
