Training: 12/30/2011

A. Power Snatch + OHS: 4x1+2 @ 70%; rest 1min
B. OHS: 5,3,1 @ 32x1;rest 4min
C. 7min: Zercher Carry (165lbs.), Stone Carry(115lbs.), Farmer's Carry (70lbs./hand)

Notes: Felt fired up tonight.  Always fun to throw some weight around.  I have been wondering what my 1RM OHS might be.  The most weight I have ever done was 205lbs. x 5.  Hitting 250lbs.  is a pretty cool thing, especially at this point of the year.  It really is a culmination of what the last 12 months has been about: improving strength and increasing ankle mobility. If this is a preview for what's to come in 2012, I am pretty excited. 

With that said, I feel like I am at  camp III on Everest.  I look down and see my old self down at base camp, weak and still wet behind the ears.  I look up at camp number IV and I see AJ, a baby gorilla with twice the strength and work capacity than me, hundreds of feet above me.  Far off in the distance however is the summit, and I can barely see a figure there.  The snow is too dense and the fog too thick to really make out who is there.  I lace up my shoes and prepare to climb.  I am excited to continue on my journey.  I am excited to train.  I am excited to suffer.  I am excited to feel good.  I am excited to sleep.  I am excited to attempt things that I may or may not be able to do.  Year ends tomorrow, let's end on a high note.
