On Saturday we had a birthday celebration for my 50th.  Sometimes I will put a lot of effort into creating a workout like this but this time, I just decided to do a benchmark.  We did Filthy Fifty through once and then back through again.  I wore a 20 lb vest.

This was way more difficult than I thought it would be and it took me 63 minutes.

Afterward, we did a community ice bath and then everyone came upstairs to have pancakes and coffee.  Thanks to Allison and Alan Lebovitz and my wife Cynthia for getting this all together.  

Matt Greenwell also designed a really cool t-shirt for my birthday

 5 sets of 10 and then Gratitude.  Greenwell nailed it

After the pancakes, we took my son Hayden to Move in day at Belmont.  He got moved in and settled.  Good luck Hayden!

Today, we did this one

Deadlift 5-4-3-2-1

then

CrossFit Games 50 + Handstand Walk Event

Handstand Walk 40 feet

20 Wall Balls

Handstand Walk 40 Feet

I finished this in 1:39.  This would have had me around 8th place at the Games.  Need work!

We then did short rope climbs with no legs.  EMOM for 5 minutes 

 

Farmers walks next with double 53 KBs.  As far as you can go until dropping.

Then, Circle up for core and stretching.  Done by 6:40

Have a great week
