a 115lb kb gives me a boner. What the hardy hand shake? (that question is not connected to my aforementioned boner btw). Good trainings.

3/26/10
Fooled around with kbs, medballs and rolling thunder

3/27/10
collars = 12lbs

My squat has always sucked but now it is very bad. I had a handjack put down on my right foot as it was pushed off a walk behind on to the back of a truck the tips went under the skid. They got scared and lifted the forks on the walk behind and that put a bunch of weight onto my foot. the steel toe took most of it. but it hurt the bone on top. When I dl, throw, cleans it is fine. but when I squat or run it hurts.

squat highbar
147lbs 1set 3reps 237lbs 1set 3reps 257lbs 1set 3reps

I have games the next 3 weekends.

This weekend started as a demo and is now a games. I wish it was still a demo I still need to put some work in.

Loch Norman is on the 17th and 18th. I am going to try the stone lifting on the 17th, I think it is most reps or something with a 220lbs field stone. I was going to try the wrestling but I have been having a lot of fun training with my stone thought I would give the stone a go. If the wrestling and the stone are not at the sametime I might try the wrestling to. On the 18th I will throw in the Bs.

The 24th is Steeletoser's games, it is an open. He and Billy ( Billy is the judge ) put on the best games around. I am making a stone for 1st prize. Last year I think Steeletoser gave out kilts for the top 3.

I did not get to compete this past weekend. I hurt my foot again. I knew it did not feel right Tuesday after I threw, Wednesday I had some pain. Thursday I could not put any weight on it, Took a salt bath and the swelling went down a lot. I went to the doc on Friday and he said it was my tendon. He also said that if I rested this week and the swelling and tightness went down that I could throw this weekend. so no training this week, I will bethrowing this weekend.

The stone lifting went well. It was # of reps, the record is 23. There is no time limit you just go around with whoever is in taking a turn doing whatever reps they want I worked in 2s. I did 17 for the win. I was happy with that. Think if I had to I could have got the record. I have some very bad stone kisses and was glad I did not have to. The stone starts in the middle of to barrels you pick it up carry it to one of them put it down, pick it up take it back and put it down in the middle, pick it up take it to the other barrel put it down, pick it up and carry it back to the middle put it down that is 1 rep. I think they said the stone was 220 to 230, it had a lot of iron in it.

4/18/10
I threw ok.

funny to me crossfit story. 3 crossfitters show up to throw they have on the elite fitness shirts. One of them gets "hurt" so all 3 drop out. We think it is because he is there ride. Then we see all 3 sitting drinking beer watching. It is very, very rare that someone drops out.

They are very deep scrapes. I should have stopped but pride would not let me. I am dumb like that. If I was a crossfitter I would always be hurt, just to try and see my name at the the top of some dry board.

rode bike to work.

fooled around with cbs and kbs.

rode bike home.

Next week back to training, training. I got some farmers walks a few weeks ago from NY Barbell. Because of my foot and the highland games the past weekends I have been holding off. After this weekend the games are done for me the next few months I can get back to it. If I hurt my foot I will not be happy but I will not be letting anyone down.

The stone I cast for steeletosser to give away to 1st place came out the best of any I have poured so far.

I am going to brag on my nephew a bit. He is 9 my sister and his brother came to live with me about 8 or 9 months ago. When they moved in both boys wanted to start to workout (9 and 11). I do not think kids should lift weights they should be kids, they were pests and I gave in some. No weights but we started doing some med ball training sprints that kind of thing. one of the things we do is I roll the med ball down the hill and where they run it down and stop it is where they carry it back up from. Anyway I have a old set of weights under the steps in my cellar, they want those weights very bad. I have a river stone that is about 130lbs. I told them when they lift the stone to lock out or turn 13 they can have the weights. They have been trying to lift it for about 6 months. last night, the 9 year old all 75lbs of him lifted it about 12". My eyes about popped out of my head. I think his brother was going to cry if he kept going and locked it out.
