Week 143
    Monday, December 27, 2010
    D1L7:
      25 +1 (+3 cf. previous D1L7, -4 cf. previous PR)
      Woo. So hard.
      Numbers moving up again.
      So. Hard.

      The "+1" above is an extra round I added after the 20 minutes had run out.
    Wednesday, December 29, 2010
    D2L7:
      Untimed.

      Day 2 is always surprisingly hard.

    Wednesday, December 22, 2010
    D3L7:
      7'16" (+1'41" cf. previous D3L7, +1'41" cf. previous PR)
      Pull-ups: 40 (24-7-3-3-3)
      Push-ups: 80 (30-14-14-6-4-6-3-2-1)
      Squats: 80 (40-23-12-5)

      Been dreading it, but I did Day 3 for the first time since Aug. 7, 2010.
      Form was only OK:

      Pull-Ups:
      Full extension: NO

      Push-Ups:
      Chest to floor: NO
      Elbows at sides: NO
      Hands positioned below shoulders: NO

      But, well...there it is.

Week 144
    Monday, January 3, 2011
    D1L7:
      24 +3 (-1 cf. previous D1L7, -5 cf. previous PR)
      The "+3" above is an extra round I added after the 20 minutes had run out.
      I don't count the +n rounds in my total for the day, but they help me make progress
    Wednesday, January 5, 2011
    D2L7:
      Untimed.

      I did it this way:
      16/48/80
      8/24/40
      16/48/80
      It was hard.
    Saturday, January 8, 2011
    D3L7:
      5'42" (-1'34" cf. previous D3L7, +7" cf. previous PR)

      Pull-ups: 40 (28-4-4-4)
      Push-ups: 80 (30-12-12-10-6-5)
      Squats: 80 (50-2010)

      Beat last week's time by 1'34" and only missed my PR by 7 seconds! I am pleased.

Week 145
    Monday, January 3, 2011
    D1L7:
      26 (+2 cf. previous D1L7, -3 cf. previous PR) .

      Creeping up is hard work!
      Especially pleased with this workout as I felt rather gassed even before starting—proof that desk job fatigue has little to no relation to physical fatigue.
    Wednesday, January 5, 2011
    D2L7:
      Untimed.

      Maybe one of these weeks I'll do Day 2 slowly, with perfect form...but I can't imagine the agony of that!
    Saturday, January 8, 2011
    D3L7:
      4'55" (-00:47 cf. previous D3L7, -00:40 cf. previous PR)

      Pull-ups: 40 (30-4-3-3)
      Push-ups: 80 (30-10-10-10-6-4-5-4-1)
      Squats: 80 (50-15-10-5)

Week 146 - Level 8 - The Ocho

    Wednesday, January 19, 2011
    D1L8:
      18 +1, PR.

      I wasn't sure how to approach this. I started off intending to pace myself, maybe even take it easy. Then it got hard.
      18 is a good benchmark; one I hope to beat next week.
    Saturday, January 22, 2011
    D3L7:
      9:02 PR

      Pull-ups: 50 (20-10-5-5-5-5)
      Push-ups: 100 (25-21-4-15-12-10-2-7-4)
      Squats: 100 (50-25-25)

      I don't have my notebook with me, so I will have to enter the subsets of the rounds later.
      What's cool about this level is that the sets are so big, they add up to a real workout!

Week 149
    Monday, February 7, 2011
    D1L8:
      20 (-2 cf. previous D1L8, -2 cf. previous PR)

      Tired today due to two late nights over the weekend.
    Saturday, February 12, 2011
    D3L8:
      8:04 PR (-00:29 cf. previous D3L8, -00:07 cf. previous PR)

      Pull-ups: 50 (20-6-4-4-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1)
      Push-ups: 100 (37-8-10-10-10-8-5-5-5-2)
      Squats: 100 (65-15-20)

      I couldn't get into my kipping rhythm and that meant I didn't get very many pull-ups in the all-important first set.
      (If I can get a huge number in that first set, it really helps my lower my overall time.)
      Somehow, I still managed a PR.
      Yay.
