SU. OBSTACLE TRAINING
Obstacle training was pretty sweet. It was very hot out. We did it after going to the beach and since we sat in the sun all day then put on our UA heatgear, it was even worse. Corey got sunburnt, even though he is Native American. But despite the heat, the sunburns and the bees, we kicked the shit out of the workout!!
It was three of us, Corey, Jay and I. We did the usual circuit, the drag bag was an extra pain in the ass. This thursday we are bringing down an older, but light tire to start carrying. Yeah buddy!!! I’ll try to get some new pics.

Thoughts: Same thoughts as usual, hard as hell, but I’m recovering faster from the workouts.
Thoughts: We were absolutely exhausted, so we treated ourselves with a day off. I gave my notice to my job, so that was emotionally draining. Corey had a rough day at work pulling cable. So, we need supps, so we headed over to Flex Appeal, got some protein, glutamine, vitamins and pre workout powder. Expensive day, but we finished off the night with a shower, dinner and watched Rocky II till we fell asleep. Much needed day.

Thoughts: What a crazy day. Work has been insane as usual. We were suppose to check out a new gym at a local campus with a friend, but when we got there, I did not have my ID. oops!!! So we turned back and went to our usual gym. Didn’t get home till 8:45pm..yuck. The workout took longer than usual because we were teaching one of his friends our workout.

FUCKING GREAT WORKOUT!!!! Instead of 4 times, we did 5!!! Took us pretty much the same time to do 5 sets of all of the obstacles as when we were just doing 4. I take that as a compliment!! We are getting faster and stronger.
I did 3 sets of the 440lb tire (3 x 5 flips = 15) by myself!!!! Corey was there to make sure it didn’t crush me, but I pushed, lifted and flipped that bitch!!! My shoulders are all scratched and bruised, but man I felt like beast.
I didn’t take too long of a breather between exercises, I kept going and going and going. I stopped thinking and just pushed through it.
Avg HR: 147 bpm
Thoughts: I felt so good during the obstacle training, but today I’m definitely sore today. I have cuts and bruises all over the place, so this weekend will be interesting! I’m heading to my place up North (those of you who are not New Englanders, we say “up North” going to New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont. I’m going to New Hampshire, which is roughly a 2 hour ride.
