November rain ain't sweet

Monday - Prewod jump rope. Lame. Did the 1 minute challenge, got 73. Still lame.
*For Total Reps*
*1 Minute at each station (20 seconds rest)
5 Rounds
1)Burpee Box Overs 24"
2)25ft Sprint (each cone =1)
3)KBS 55#
4)Shoulder to Overhead 45#
Total was 1276, we lost by 200 reps. Pushed at every station, ~10 burpees each round, 17-20 sprints, 15-20 kb swings, 25-32 s2o.
Post class, 50 burpees.

Tuesday - 50 burpees pre class. Skill - Deadlift, work to 1RM. 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 245x2, 275x1, 295x1, 300 failed. 295 new 1RM PR. So close to the 3 mark, got it off the ground, just not enough drive. In my head too much, 295 was fairly easy.
Muscle Ups (bar jumping)
Squat Snatch 95#
Snatches felt great. Wasn't stringing them together quickly, but felt form was good! Bar muscle ups were easier, 3 at a time before resting.
15 burpees post.

Wednesday - Nada.... had the internal argument between running, rowing, or resting. Hopefully made a good decision to rest today. Did some ab work, hoping the legs are ready to go in the morning.

Thursday - Skill - Front Squat. 5x135, 5x165, 3x185, 1x205, 225 - failed. 1x215! New PR.
30 Squat Clean and Jerks
7:13 - used 95#. Really focused on form, could have gone faster but would have been sloppy. These felt good, even the jerks.
Packet pickup for the cupcake run and ate at Mission Taco. Good duck tacos!

Friday - Skill - OHS. 5x95, 3x115, 2x135, 2x145, 1x155, 1x165... thought it was a pr, but nope. Had numbers screwed up. Already did 165x2 last week....
30 Power Snatches
Used 95#, first 5 unbroken. 4:00 time, can definitely go faster.
50 burpees

Saturday - Cupcake Run! Had a great run, Wy was slow as molasses eating though! WTF? HA! He went through his standard 1 mile crabby session, so I left him behind for a bit. Switched to the big 5 min cupcakes for the last 3 stops. Waited for him just before the 4th stop, much faster eating at the last 2 stops. And he full on sprinted to the finish FAST! Everything I could do to keep up. Actually had some really good finish times.
Then we both did the obstacle course races. 5K and 10 obstacles for me. Three of us in the lead pack till the second stop, then we left one behind. Mad it under the cargo nets quick, then the lawn ornament run up the hill. Next was the spin, which landed on "25 jumping jacks OR spin again". So I did the JJs, and the girl said now I had to spin again. Got to do 25 more JJs, while 1st place took off. Tracked him down during the run in time for the keg carry. Over the crooked balance beam carrying the kegs, then ran up the hill to go around the hay bales. One guy yells that I dont need to carry the kegs, so I drop em.... make it to the hay bales, and the other guy yell that I need the kegs. So I have to run back and get them and headed back down the hill and over the beams again. The girl at the bottom said I didn't need to do the beams back down... I didn't believe her.
Had to play catch up AGAIN. Stayed within 20 yards of him from then on. Had to do some hay bail hurdles, shoot a basket, remove 4 six packs of bottles and re pack them, scale 3 walls, traverse a rope between 2 trees, jump up in 2 buses and run through, then scale a cargo net over the bus. Finished off with monkey bars. The rungs spun, and the guy in first didn't handle it well. He dropped twice and basically skipped the end. I made it across and pushed him to keep going hard to the finish. Probably could have just sprinted around him, but for what ever reason, decided to just follow him in to the finish. Great time!
Wy had a GREAT run as well, starting in maybe 5th, he passed into second after the cargo crawl and lawn ornaments. Just him and first through the rest of the race. Finished by making his basket in 1 shot and ran strong to the finish, seconds behind first place. Great day of running!
Went to Mission Taco again for lunch. Duck tacos are addictive.

Sunday - Went for an easy 6 miler in the morning. Then Elvis at the Symphony! Went to Sweet Tomatoes after the symphony... and ate WAY too much.
