Spent about 2 hours collecting Vitamin D samples for future reference. #tan #sun #goodforthesoul
She selflessly toiled in hardship for an insufferable husband, the lawyer suggested, but the jury’s glaring eyes suggested the man did not deserve the axe.
Didn’t see that coming…
"The Martian" by Andy Weir. If you are even slightly a geek this is an absolute fun read. Astronaut left behind on Mars has to figure out how to survive. MacGyver on steroids but interesting…
14.2 really sucked yesterday both physically and mentally. Physically it was the lack of ability to stabilize a light weight overhead. Mentally it was realizing just how weak my shoulder is and how much pain is still present. I thought that surgery would help, or had helped, but it only took cash out of my pocket and took me out of the gym for several months.
That said I think that 14.2, and the Open, is why I love this stuff. It’s real.
It’s a test that I can’t hide from. Either we hit the reps or we don’t. Heck, some people PR”d their overhead squat to get 1 rep, and some people are getting their first ever chest-to-bar pullup.
I know that my shoulder is weak. I know that my shoulder range of motion needs help, but we don’t OHS a ton. From reading other workouts it looks like most boxes don’t program OHS a lot either. I’m not sure how I will make time, or what I will do, but clearly standard programming is not sufficient for me. Need to add in shoulder strengthening sessions and work a lot more on shoulder mobility.
At some point, I may need to go back in to see Mr. Surgeon again too. That may be unavoidable, but, for now, I’ll put that on hold.
My 14.2 score sucks. Really, really, really sucks. I won’t lie. I want a better score, and I am capable of a better score. If I hit the box tomorrow and people are hitting the WOD I may join in, or I may not. I have a score, and I have some limitations that need to be overcome.
Yosemite. If you haven’t been….Go.
Great footage, but it’s even more amazing in person. I love knowing most of these locations. Love even more the memories that come back from seeing them.
The $3G’s I dropped on shoulder surgery was a total waste. Should have used it on a trip to the Big Island. At least I’d have a tan.– me
Shoulder too darn weak to effectively stabilize overhead.
Repped out Chest-to-bars like a mutha…
mindset is to see if my weaksauce shoulder can keep 95# easily stabilized and go at a moderate pace. Feel it out.
If I’m shoulder limited I’ll take what happens. If I can do more I’ll come back on Sunday and obliterate my soul.
Anybody else throwing down today?
If you’re a vegan that does crossfit which one do you tell people about first?
When I ask you to give me “specific examples of” - give me specific examples.
Do not give me a vague description of a Venn diagram outlining aligned synergies or other B-school dribble. Being wrong is much better than not even being in the ballpark.
I’ve been to B-school too. There’s a lot to be learned, but application is key.
Show me you can think son…..
