What? We're half way through Summer?

I haven't blogged in a while.  Obviously.

Kind of forgot about until someone mentioned it this weekend, at our CFJ pool party.

I've been working hard at the gym, usually doing the Masters Rx weight on stuff.  I mean, I"m not officially 55 (two more years), but the weights feel about right to me.

Also, I'm down to 16 lb weight loss since April 11 or whenever I started this.  Managed to not gain a ton on my June vacation, despite eating some pretty tasty stuff.  Heading out to the Virgin Islands for a couple weeks this Wednesday, and hopefully when I return I won't have gained it all back.

I'm 4 lbs from a 20 lb goal.  Hopefully I can hit that goal by the end of August, and another 5 by end of September.  Then I'll be happy with it and settle in at that weight.  I already feel SO much better having that 16 lbs gone. 

Today's WOD:

For Time:
100m Run/sprint
21 Thrusters 95/65 MRX 75/55
3 Rope Climbs15′ RX+ 3 Legless MRX 3 10′
15 Thrusters
2 Rope Climbs15′ RX+ 2 Legless MRX 2 10′
9 Thrusters
1 Rope Climb 15′ RX+ 1 Legless MRX 1 10′
100m Run/sprint

My time:  10:18, MRx

I still do not like thrusters.   Probably not going to happen at this point, eight years+ of CF.  But I'll do them.  It's all exercise, so whatever.  I love the rope climbs.  Just wish I wasn't scared of the higher one. 

Strength was Back Squats

I should get back to lifting heavier on these.  Maybe this fall, I'll focus more on that.
