Dharma learns how to swing the Kettlebell

The front door has been sticking lately.  If you get to class and it seems locked.. it's not. PULL HARD!!

We've decided to lift the Burpee Penalty for latecomers. Taking extra time to do burpees only further disrupts class and has created some non-posi vibes... and you know, at SBK we're all about posi-vibes. Moving forward, if you're more than 10 minutes late you must ask the coach if it's okay for you to join the running class. 

There are a lot of clothes in the coat room, many of which have been sitting there for a long time.  If you've got something in there you wouldn't like removed, please pick it up before Wednesday night.  We're going to clean out the closet on Wednesday after classes.

Monday, May 31st is Memorial Day and you know what that means at SBK... MURPH!  Does everyone have the day off?  We'd love to get the community together in the afternoon, Murph and then get our grill on.  What say you?!

damn i just looked at my last mile time 6:49. How did I do that? Hopefully i can match it today. Went out with coworkers yesterday--drank a lot and ate a bunch of carby snacks.

re: murphI am off on Monday. I know last year we did it on Sunday and had the BBQ afterwards. For rest and recovery purposes I would rather do it on Sunday. That said if you guys decide to do it Monday--im gonna be there.

Shawn - we actually didn't do it on memorial day last year, if I remember correctly, which is why it was on a sunday...

Fun 8 am class with some of the CFSBK Parents (Ash, Charlotte, McGrath). Ash, hope your knee diagnosis is good!LBBSQ: (45x5, 95x5, 135x3, 155x1)170x5 HOLY HELL this was heavy.155x5x2

Lost about 20% of my strength from finishing Starting Strength in Feb. Also lost 5% of my bodyweight, so there's that...

Mile run: 7:15. Very very pathetic. Nice chasing/racing you, Ben.

Warmup:-400m jog-foam roll-Samson stretch, mountain climbers, squat thrusts

LBBS:(45x5, 75x5, 105x3, 130x2)work: 150x5x3-felt heavy but good. It's only gonna get harder though...

Mile: 7:23-this is gonna be a good baseline. Will test this again in August after the Bronx half, and then again after the marathon in November.

I'm on for murph on Monday! Can't wait. Also really looking forward to tomorrow's benchmark...

195x5x2 (pr)200x5x1(pr)Used the "Larry Craig special" wide stance per advice from Paulie. I've used this the past 2 times and really felt more stable. It feels easier to get down to depth and Im not losing my back as much. Have to remember to rip the ground apart.

Talking to laurel I might be able to bring my feet in a couple inches and maybe point my toes more. Will continue to work on it.

Mile: 6:35 (PR)Still pounding the hell out of the pavement with my feet once I get tired. Need to work on efficiency.

Was chasing JMD and his 5:45...geezus.

LBBS: 285x5x3

Mile Run (1): 6:55Mile Run (2): 7:12

Nice working with Fox. Definite sticking point after coming out o the hole @285 -- may do some box squats.

Feeling S-L-O-W on the run. Really need to pace this and not just run it all out. Cramped on the second lap of the second mile -- forced myself to finish.

Had to bail out of back squats. Did the warm-ups at 45x5, 95x5, 135x4, 165x3, 185x1, then did 205x2 before I stopped. Something wasn't feeling quite right.

Did the mile run in 6:21. Basically chased JMD all the way. A significant PR for me.

Back squats were with Shane doing 235 across. Felt pretty easy still. Nice to have this territory still there.

Run was done in 6:48 chasing Shawn. This was a substantial PR for me. Fastest I had ever done a mile was 7 flat in 7th grade.

Went and ate a pound of pork each with Katie and Laurel. Katie and I are not sure Laurel did her fair share so it may have been a bit more than a pound each for Katie and I.

LBBSQ: (45x5, 95x5, 135x3)160x5x3

Felt good, went up at a good speed, no twisting. Happy hip. HURRAY!

Run: 8:09. I wasn't sure how fast to go. Immediately afterwards I felt fine so I think I could have gone quite a bit faster, but had no idea what pace I could sustain. This is the first time that I have run something longer than 400 and not had to fight the urge to stop and walk. (past runs involve a constant chant of "keep running Laurel, keep running." I was braced for that moment this time but it didn't come.) It's kind of pathetic, I know, but for whatever reason running anything longer than 400 is beastly hard for me. Anyway, I'd like to try this again soon to see how much time I can shave off.

Reeeeally sore quads today. Oh, hello thrusters and rowing sprints...

Squat: 265x5x3

Mile: 7:40

Glad my squats went up. Wasn't sure what I'd feel like. Ran in my chucks and took it at about at about 80%

MY GIRL!!! Dharma had a BLAST at CF Teens today. Great job guys.

HBBSqw/up (45x5, 60x5, 65x3)70x5x5x5

This felt okay; it's been way too long since I've back squatted. Maybe I should have gone low bar? A few were shallow, and my knee wobble is still a problem, but overall a good day.

Mile: 7:15I ran this at about 85%. I took the first lap really easy after the squatting, and bearing in mind I have an 8-miler to do tomorrow. Almost caught up to Dan at the end, but he took off.

Then climbing at BKB! I took my first lesson and Neal and I were there for almost 4 hours. It was a BLAST! A huge deal for me, considering I am afraid of heights.

Observation: everyone there has tattoos too. It made me want one even more.

Squat: 115x5x3 - second exposure at this weight. Still trying to get the form correct.

Adapted the Mile to 2000 K rowing: 8:33

Happily took a nap in the middle of the day.
