 This doesn't have anything to do with today's workout.  This is a moment from Goruck Selection where they had us take everything out of our bags and put it in a giant pile.  THey took all our food and made sure we didnt have any prohibited items.  We had :30 seconds to get ready.  I am just over the Cadre's left shoulder.  This part of the event was not ideal for me or many others.

Sorry for the late post, I was pretty busy all day answering questions on my other various social media accounts.  For those who may not know, I have 3 fishing television shows that all have pretty healthy social followings.  My show is called Saltwater Experience and the handles are:

and my personal instagram @ tom_rowland

If you are into fishing, go check them out. 

Today, I offered to answer any questions posted until 2 pm.  There were alot of questions!  Wow...I hope I helped some people. That is what I was hoping to do.

On the workout side of life, we started our day with this one:

1. WHM Breathing

2.

CrossFit Games Open 11.6 / 12.5 : 93 reps | Rx'd -14 reps

AMReps in 7 mins:

3 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 3 reps 3 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups | 3 reps

6 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 6 reps 6 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups | 6 reps

9 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 9 reps 9 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups | 9 reps

12 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 12 reps 12 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups | 12 reps

15 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 15 reps 15 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups

18 Thrusters, 100 lbs | 3 reps 18 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups

21 Thrusters, 100 lbs 21 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups

 

It might look confusing the way it is written above but it is really simple.  do 3 thrusters/3 chest to bar pullups, then go to 6/6, 9/9, 12/12, 15/15...ect... for as many as you can possibly do in 7 minutes.

I have done this workout several times and my best was 107 reps or being 1 shy of completing the 18 thrusters.  I thought I could beat that today, but was not able to.  In fact I was 14 short.

I guess it is hard to set a PR every day, but at least I got one this week on the 5 mile run.

 

Ill take it. 

 

Have a great weekend
