Thanks for joining me in my Follow Dave Journey, we are in week 31. This journey chronicles my attempt to be one of the Top 200 Fittest 50 – 54 year old males as measured by the CrossFit Open.
Today is my sister Dana’s 56th birthday. Dana has always been an inspiration to me. We were always close and I grew up idolizing her, inspired by her zest and joy for life. Happy Birthday Sis.
After two weeks in the CrossFit Open I stand in 899th place. Short of my goal but in the top 10% of the world. I don’t say this boastfully but humbly, I know how hard I’ve worked and I’m in awe of how much more fit I need to be to reach the top 200.
Workout 18.2 had two parts to it with 18.2 being a cardio blaster followed by 18.2a being a one rep Max lift.
I once again did the workout twice but this week I was glad I did. I improved significantly in both parts of the workout and ended up with my best results ever in an Open workout.
Workout 18.3 was announced last night. I mentioned a few weeks back that I didn’t think Ring Muscle Ups would be in the Open and that I had made the decision not to work on these. I was wrong, they are a major part of this workout……oh boy
I have never done a Ring Muscle Up, but I’m going to go with the attitude that there is no time like the present to reach a new milestone. I’ll let you know how it goes.
The workout also includes Double Under’s and Overhead squats, two movements that I’m pretty good at, so at least I will be able to post a score.
I’m still having fun.
I’m writing this post from sunny Las Vegas. I’m here for the PAC 12 Basketball tournament. This is my fourth year in a row for this event. Currently my Oregon Ducks are still alive in the tournament, although I am not sure how…..smile
Thanks for following me on my journey.
