Today, I worked with BUS, he is our master's athlete (40-44) who is competing in the 2015 CrossFit Games. We ran through some of his WODS that just recently were announced, today was some of the most fun I've had in a while training. We just sampled some of the wods or portions of the wods to get a feel. We don't need to do them in their entirety at this point, we are too close to competition and we trust that the training or work is already done.

40 GHD sit-ups
10 bar muscle-ups
50-meter sandbag run (100 / 60 lb.)

Competition Day

Event # 1 - 6 minute AMRAP
Partner Yoke #400 50'' down and back x3 + Sled pull/push #275 75' x4 + as many stone lifts as possible
We finished maybe 10th in this event?

Event #2 Sprint For Time
5 burpees + 18 flights of stairs - 2:16 - maybe top 5 in this event

Event #3 - barbell chipper...same one from Tuesday - we did 9:29 in competition and got 2nd.

Event #4 - 6 rounds for time of:
15 thrusters #95 + 5 muscle ups... 6:02 I think... 2nd place again and finished the day in 2nd.
Not bad. The reason I compete is only to make sure I have something to train for. The day of competition makes you deal with nerves just like bowhunting. You deal with physical pain just like bowhunting. You have to be mentally sound just like bowhunting and you have to perform when it matters just like bowhunting. Today was also very special - it was Alicia's and mine 6th Anniversary. We are so luck to have each other, but mainly me really lucky to have her, what a woman. Oh, by the way, she was in the same competition and took 1st, again! Nobody remembers second! HA.

Woke up before the family usually does and went to local 3D range and shot 15 targets from 40-100 yards. Was a great morning to say the least. Tomorrow I fly down to LA to coach one of my friends and athletes at the 2015 CrossFit Games, we are coming for that Podium.
