    No goals or expectations — just doing it.

    Welcome and good for you!

    You managed 42 rounds of Day 1 and smoked Day 3.

    I’d say you should bump yourself up to Level 4, if not Level 5.

    I thought about bumping after completing that D3 and while it may be tempting to hustle up some levels, I’m inclined to take it somewhat easy on the climb. I do plan on not waiting a full day between workouts if my body recovers sufficiently.

    L3D1 confirmed what I suspected — that SimpleFit is going to be a good program for me. This was only my third Day 1 workout but I finally hit a cardio wall. I couldn’t maintain the steady pace I enjoyed during the earlier two Day 1’s. Looking forward to next workout.

    25 is a solid result.

    I’d say you’ll beat L3D3 this week.

    cheapo, I think you nailed the bump suggestion. Squeaked by L4D3 — I think I’ll meet my match going for L5D3.

    I believe I won’t be able to complete my first attempt at L5D3 in under 5 minutes. I’ve been going pretty quickly through the workouts with good success and it’s probably time to dial it down (more rest days between workouts). One thing I noticed on my L5D1 was that my pace took a serious downturn. I want to say that my muscles were tiring, but that my cardio fitness played a factor in me slowing down.

    My plan for next week is to start the Simple running program (http://www.simplefit.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=536” class=”bbcode_url”>http://www.simplefit.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=536). I’m hoping that’ll help out with recoveries because other than SF, I haven’t been engaged in any other forms of exercise.

    I’m thinking that next week will also be a designated rest week. I’m going to do each of LxD3 workouts (I’m kinda curious) and get going on the interval training.

    Scrapping the running idea. Just too many distractions (read: kid activities) to even pursue it consistently. Will mix in some other non-SF activities on rest days.

    Opted to do all of Level 1 instead of this plan, too.

    Holy smokes my garage was a sauna tonight.

    I just did started L6D1 after taking last week off (L2) and while I’ve increased one round from my last L6 it sure felt like I did way more in this heat and humidity. I better start looking for an air flow solution or I’ll cook.

    Might have to start kipping (read: learn to kip) if I’m going to move up to L7 or maybe I’ll stick with the dead-hang a bit longer. What to do, what to do…

    holy smoke, achieving a time of 5:44 on L6D3 without kipping – that’s awesome mate!!! are you sure you’re doing dinkum dead-hangs?

    Thanks.

    I’ve been doing the normal dead-hang pull-ups noting a periodic sway due to fatigue now and then.

    The pull-ups look like this, http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/StrictVKippingPullup.wmv” class=”bbcode_url”>http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/StrictVKippingPullup.wmv, except insert someone less in shape than that guy.
