B Day workout

1 mile jog



I did this one once before and it sucked.  It didn't feel nearly as bad this time.  I was left feeling like maybe I dogged it a little bit.  I should have timed it to compare with next time.  Thrusters still are the worst for me.  I would rather do burpees than thrusters.  It is something I want to get better at though.  I'm glad my wrist felt ok.  One of the reasons I've been staying away from thrusters is that I tweaked my wrist about a month ago doing cleans (incorrectly I'm sure).  So I'm glad I was able to complete a nice spicy workout for my birthday.  Now if I can just get home ahead of traffic.

Just CF

.5 mile jog

10 minutes AMRAP

20 hand release pushups
5 pull ups
20 DU

These kinds of straight up crossfit workouts are fun.  I need to do more of these.  I did some power cleans yesterday and I think my wrist wasn't fully recovered from the last time.  I am thinking of investing in some wrist wraps.

I heard somebody ripping Trump today saying that the he has failed at so many businesses why would we want somebody like that as president.  It made me think of 2 things.  First Trump just released his tax returns in which it was discovered that he made well over $500 million last year.  Maybe he has failed at a several business ventures.  Seems like it has all worked out for him.  Second, I was reminded of the following quote.  The master has failed more times than the beginner has tried.

10 minute walk

3 hsp

Today was basically a rest day.  I feel pretty beat up after the pistol/kettlebell walking lunch workout I tried to do on Sunday.  So today I wanted to just mess around a little.  I decided to try to walk my way up a wall until I was completely vertical.  I have a real mental problem with being upside down but once I was completely vertical it wasn't so bad.  Other than the unfamiliar sensation of  blood rushing to my head I was fine.  I even managed to do 3 actual hand stand pushups.  I'm going to go ahead and call that a win for the day.
