Great to be back in the garage this morning.  While I truly love waking up early and starting my day off in the dark, on the water, I also love waking up and starting my day off in the dark, ready to get after a workout.

I am fortunate to be able to live a life in balance and enjoy both of these activities.  The good thing is that they are not mutually exclusive.  When I start the day off before the sun comes up on the water, I almost always get my workout in.  If I fish later, I workout in the morning.

Today, I chose a good one to get back into the groove:


5 rounds for time of:

Row, 1000 m

Farmers Walk (Dumbbell), 45 lbs, 200 m

Waiter Walk (Right Arm), 45 lbs, 50 m

Waiter Walk (Left Arm), 45 lbs, 50 m

Use dumbbell for waiter walk.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Michael E. Weston, 37, assigned to the Kabul Country Office in Kabul, Afghanistan, was killed on October 29, 2009, when the helicopter he was in crashed in western Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife Cynthia Tidler, parents Judy Zarit and Steve Weston, and brother Thomas.

This was an outstanding forearm blaster.  Wow.  The farmer's walk went from mildly uncomfortable in rounds 1 and 2 to a serious mental grind.  Great workout.  41:23
