Week 6

Post by cheapo » Sun Apr 27, 2008 5:00 am

Week 6
  • Sunday, April 27, 2008
    Run: Tuesday, April 29, 2008
    D1L4:
    • 25 rounds (+6 cf. previous D1L4) (-1 cf. previous D1L3)
      I tried to do a round every 40 seconds. I managed that pace for 20 rounds or so. After that, I did a round when I could. I used the interval timer on my watch to count out the 40 seconds.

      I will try a round every 43 seconds next time. That should get be 27.9 (!) rounds.
    Wednesday, April 30, 2008
    D2L4:
    • 4'14" (+23" cf. previous D2L4) (-1'01" cf. previous D2L3)
      Did D1 yesterday, really felt it today. This is reflected in my time.
    Saturay, May 3
    D3L4:
    • 6'15" (-1'56" cf. previous D2L4) (+2'17" cf. previous D2L3)
      Pull-ups: 20 (11, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1)
      Push-ups: 41 (22, 8, 6, 3, 2)
      Squats: 41 (30, 11)
      I have dropped almost two minutes between each of my last 3 D3s!

Week 7

Post by cheapo » Tue May 06, 2008 3:21 am

Week 7
  • Monday, May 5, 2008
    D1L4:
    • 29 rounds (+4 cf. previous D1L4)
      I did a round every 43 seconds, somehow thinking that this would result in 29 rounds.
      At around the 25th round, I realized I was going to fall short, so I started going faster than my planned interval.
      I finished the squats a few seconds after the final beep of my stopwatch.
    Wednesday, May 7, 2008
    D2L4:
    • 3'39" (-25" cf. previous D2L4)
    Friday, May 9
    D3L4:
    • 4'58" (-1'17" cf. previous D3L4)
      Pull-ups: 20 (11, 3, 3, 2)
      Push-ups: 41 (26, 9, 5, 1)
      Squats: 41 (41)
      Whee! Under 5 minutes! Moving up to L5!

Thanks!

I'd like to track this too. I called my Dr., but she doesn't do body fat measurements. I guess I'll have to buy some calipers and do it myself.

I think I will take some more pictures this week. They're a fun indicator of progress.

Week 9

Post by cheapo » Tue May 20, 2008 3:35 am

Week 9
  • Monday, May 19, 2008
    D1L5:
    • 21 rounds (+/-0 cf. previous D1L4)
      Again, really hard. And I only matched last week's tally.
    Wednesday, May 21, 2008
    D2L5:
    • Untimed
      Again, really hard! I am doing a cleanse this week (3 day fast with master cleanser), so I should probably not be working out at all, but I don't want to fall off the SimpleFit wagon. Since I wasn't feeling very energetic, I took the squats pretty slow, only to find this made them much MUCH harder!
    Friday, May 23
    D3L5:
    • 8'24" (-1'26" cf. previous D3L5)
      Pull-ups: 26 (11, 4, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1)
      Push-ups: 51 (27, 8, 7, 2, 5, 2)
      Squats: 51 (25, 16, 10)
      Oooh, made good progress on my time, but man did I feel heavy on the chin-ups. No, my arms didn't feel weak, I felt heaver. Strange.

Week 10

Post by cheapo » Sun May 25, 2008 3:27 am

Week 10 (Easy)
  • Easy week already? Sometimes it seems like I've only been doing this for a few weeks. Other times it seems like I have been at it for ages and I wonder where my progress is.

    Sunday, May 25, 2008
    Weigh-In:
    • 93kg (205 lbs)
    Monday, May 26, 2008
    D1L3:
    • 24 rounds (-2 cf. previous D1L3)
      Upset stomach today. Good thing it's an easy week.
    Wednesday, May 28, 2008
    D2L3:
    • Untimed
      Untimed, but I threw in some clapping push-ups and one piked ("L") pull-up (crossfit video)...of which I am very proud.
    Friday, May 30
    D3L3:
    • This turned out to be a very easy week. No Day 3.

      3 weeks with the same number of rounds. Bummer.
      My wife however, scored a PR of 31 on D1L1, beating last week by 6 sets!

Week 12

Post by cheapo » Tue Jun 10, 2008 2:56 am

Week 12
  • Monday, June 9, 2008
    D1L5:
    • 17 rounds (-4 cf. previous D1L5)
      Still getting over my cold.
    Wednesday, June 11, 2008
    D2L5:
    • Untimed
      D2 used to be the easy day. It is still easier than the others, but it ain't easy! The squats are pretty tough.

      Also: 3 L-Pullups!
    Friday, June 13
    D3L5:
    • 8'25" (+0'1" cf. previous L5D3)

      Pull-ups: 27 (12, 4, 3, 3, 3, 1, 1)
      Push-ups: 51 (11, 9, 10, 6, 7, 3, 5)
      Squats: 51 (29, 22)

      Ugh. Frustrating that my time is identical (well, 1 second worse) than the last D3 at this level. I have not done D3 the last 2 weeks. I thought I might be well rested. Also, my time on the pull-ups was faster than previously, but that speed exhausted me and my push-ups were slow.

Amazing how that one little change increases the difficulty to the nth degree. Good Job.

Week 13

Post by cheapo » Sun Jun 15, 2008 8:54 am

Week 13
  • Sunday, June 15, 2008
    Weigh-In:
    • 92kg (203 lbs)
    Monday, June 16, 2008
    D1L5:
    • 22 rounds (+1 cf. previous D1L5)

      urgh!
      I set my interval timer for 52 seconds, a pace that would give me 23 sets.
      I then ignored the timer and went as fast as I could, until I started to lag, then I tried to follow the interval timer.
      This strategy should have resulted in more than 23 sets, but it didn't.
      BUT, I did beat my D1 score which has been holding steady at 21 for three weeks.

      I hate to say it, but tonight workout was tough too.
      I look forward to really mastering these more difficult workouts.
    Friday, June 20
    D3L5:
    • 6'51" (-1'34" cf. previous D3L5)
      Pull-ups: 26 (14, 4, 3, 3, 1, 1)
      Push-ups: 51 (30 ,7 6, 4, 4)
      Squats: 51 (31, 10, 10)

      I seem to be recovering from all my ill health of the past few weeks, and making decent progress again.
      I lopped a minute-and-a-half off my previous D3L5.
