No excuses, just busy.  The daily blog returns after a layoff.  Sorry to the daily readers, but there is nothing wrong.  Thanks for your emails.

The CrossFit Open has been going on the last 3 weeks and it always throws me for a loop in training.  I want to do my best which usually requires a little rest and also a retest of each workout.  My schedule has been to watch the announcement on Thursday and then try it around 4 pm on Friday after sleeping in.  I will get more rest on Saturday and Sunday, sleep in on Monday and then try again at 5 pm.  Then Tuesday is usually some sort of skill work, hoping to outsmart Dave Castro and be a little ahead in some movement that I expect on the next workout.  So far, I have not outsmarted anyone.

Wednesday is track work and Thursday is more skill based and movement based stuff.

I actually think that my training goes down hill during the Open, but I do feel rested.

Core Circle Jerk

We all get in a circle and each of us calls out a core exercise and reps.  We went around once.  9 guys here today

I hope the Open is going well for everyone, if you are in it.
