Grizzly Way 131010 (Blogiversary)
This morning my computer had an unfortunate run in with…whatever computers run into that make them do this for 2 hours, literally, 2 hours.
The struggle is real folks! But seriously – what a downer. Good thing it was only my work computer, the rest of my life is still safe and sound at home. And now I have an excuse to work from home on a semi-permanent basis for the next few days. How exciting!
At least I started the day the best way I know how – great coffee and some hard work.

Yesterday was a pretty mixed bag. I had a meeting get rescheduled so I missed my Lab session – which sucks because my clean still leaves a lot to be desired and it’s tough to practice those loads alone, especially when it feels like you’re getting worse. The first miss really send my head crazy. The good news is everything beyond that went pretty well. Rack jerks blow, but other than that it was a productive day.
The big surprise of the day was the max set of muscle ups, I’ve never tested this before, and wasn’t expecting it to go very well, maybe 5ish, so when I did 8 I was pretty happy, I probably could’ve really squeeze through 9 or 10 but didn’t press it. I really need to learn to kip the dip, thats the part that really get tiring. The gymnastics progressions are interesting, but not the toughest, at least not yet. As with any progression we’re starting pretty low on the totem pole, it’s a progression, that’s where you start. I’m sure it’ll get pretty challenging pretty soon. I wanted to add a WOD suggested by a twitter follower to really celebrate the 1 year anniversary, but our one working airdyne that counts calories was occupied, so I just went home…It might still happen today.
