This week working on setting new goals (handstand push ups, 5 minute mile, 5k under 18:00, 7 muscle ups, and a few off in the distance that are not for immediate disclosure.
I have really noticed the balance of what we are doing with CrossFit, one persons strength is always another weakness. Closing these gaps and filling in the holes is hard, but satisfying. Yoga showed me I am not anywhere near where I want to be with flexibility. In good news, 5 year old Kaya did 10 single reps of pull ups hanging on the bar by herself today. A big acccomplishment.
Special recognition to Randy Ross for hitting a muscle up on the rings, Dan Binkowitz for bench pressing 205 lbs and Dominic Sirianni for Split jerking 240lbs, deadlifting 365lbs and getting two dead hang pull ups, all in one week!

One kilometer path in morningside park. I know, i know…it says .97, but the html code won’t loop it. Anyway, aimed for 45 minutes. It’s nice to run this distance in a park on grass but also with a marker so you can pace. Peter’s first 10k ever…”I’m glad that’s over”.

Dan 44:01
Peter 58:51

Weighted Pull Ups 11am
Bodyweight slow as possible x5
40 lb. KB x5
70 lb. (40 and 30 KB) x2
80 lb. (40, 30kb, 10 lb plate) x2
95 lb. (40, 30kb, 2×10 lb plate, 5 lb plate) x1
90 lb. (40, 30kb, 2×10 lb plate) x1

Last two got stuck half way through the rep, had a light spot to finish and then fought the negative motion all the way down to dead hang. Goal is over 100 lb. no spot by February 16th.
