A Break for Thanks

Heading up to the homeland for the Thanksgiving holiday. So. Cold. The upside of the cold weather is that it allows for plenty of time to binge-watch Breaking Bad while loading up on coffee. Then adding some whiskey to the coffee and playing Cards Against Humanity with your people. Give thanks!

Dixie Summit Recovery
Sunday’s view from Dixie Summit Trail

Turned Saturday’s session into a recovery workout as I was feeling good, but sore from Friday’s EMOM. What’s interesting is that when I compared it to my previous times for Helen, it was faster. Huh. Now to get after those stinkin’ pull-ups – the ones with good movement that don’t blow up my shoulder.

Friday + EMOM + fun crew (CR at the station next to you) + feeling good = a great night at the ‘nasium. Kept the weight light and made the second power clean a regular clean. (What’s a squat clean?) Getting out from the bottom of the clean is always a good thing for me to work on. Ali took a vid for me to get me to stop over-thinking sheeit. It worked.
