Results 25-Feb-2008 Hal

Started the WOD on
Shoulder Press 1-1-1-1-1
Push Press 3-3-3-3-3
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5

But just barely made it through the Shoulder Press. The area that I pulled on my back is still really twingy and was hurting badly enough that it was borderline painful. So I did some other stuff instead. Here's today's workout.

Shoulder Press 1 x 95, 4x105. Not much as much weight as I want to be able to do, but I know my shoulders/back need work. So that's what I'm doing.
2 minutes of single under jump rope. Tried some double unders, still no dice. I'll get there soon enough. I was feeling more comfortable with the rope, and I'll keep speeding it up.
30 full situps.
1 mile run, 8.54" (7 mph avg) on treadmill.
Sitting Shoulder Press 12 reps, 60 lbs/arm. Felt much better on my back, but that's part of the problem. I need to engage my back in order to get it to strengthen.
Tricep cable pulldowns 2x9x50lbs.

So not a bad day, but kind of disappointing since I was looking forward to working on my back. But I guess I need to get it healthy before I get it strong.

Weekends, apparently, are bad for me and the gym. Spent the weekend working on my condo and looking at new places, so I guess I stayed reasonably active. Nothing fatiguing like a good trip to the gym, but better than sitting in a chair all day.
