Ahhhhhhhhh YEEEAHHH! Guess who's ready to get back into the training blog game? This guy. I've been hit or miss but now that we're 3 weeks in to the CrossFit Games, The Open Sectionals snowball has officially become an avalanche which has flattened life as I knew it. Now there's no more training routine, no more "what should I hit today?" or "maybe I'll get a heavy lift in"...Nope. Now my weekly training programming is mainly: Perform "AMAMRAPWAP", or As Many AMRAP WODs As Possible. As fun as the first one was to do FOUR times- I'm pretty sure I'll live if I perform the remaining WODs only once each week from here on out. Here's a quick re-hash of whats been going down in Mhire-town.....Jenny is in the 3rd trimester with our still oven-baking baby girl (Emille) due July-ish. We've settled in quite nicely into our new home and have met many lovely neighborly people. I mowed my lawn today and probably scared half of the children in the neigborhood to death. "Mommy is that dark complected guy with the mowhawk and all those tattoos going to kill us?" "No, Timmy, only if you run into his car with your bike." Good news is the lawn now looks beautiful. My 3 year old son, Vincent has been growing up like how kids do....FAST. Holy Crap! Just weeks ago he couldn't distinguish between his butthole and a hole in the ground and now he's coaching me on the importance of leverage, hip drive, and finishing when I perform the Olympic Lifts. Can someone please help me comprehend all this? I do love the snot out of the little dude. He's a funny, funny guy. Enough about him- let me tell you about what a little indian named Cochise has been up to...

2011 Sectionals WOD 1: HomeRun!!! I Did 8+ rounds (363rep) which I think was around the number that you needed to be at to separate yourself from the pack. After WOD 1 I was ranked 22nd in the region and 135th in the world. All good and well but I should have known the storm was on the horizon... 2011 Sectionals WOD 2: A Swing & A Miss. I did 10+ rounds of a WOD where the top tier scores were 11+ rounds. My score was borderline close to keeping me within the regional top 100 contention but as it were I dropped from 22nd in the region to 125th in the region. Blah. I did, however, manage to sleep every night henceforth with a very broad smile accross my face because I knew that at least I never resorted to pathetically worming up my push ups just to get more reps :) I kept'em strict and I'm happy to pay the price of having my rank drop because of it. It is what it is and we all saw alot of push ups in that wod weren't what they were supposed to be. Why even have standards?

2011 Sectionals WOD 3: A Base Hit! 30 Rounds (60 reps) I'll take it. In the video above- I had already performed two reps by the time the record button was hit. It was a tough WOD- you battle the desire to push all out until you crash or pace and stay steady but ultimately die a slow death.

WOD 4 was just released this evening. Its gonna be a nice little treat...10 Min AMRAP of 60 bar facing burpees, 30 OHS @ 120lb, and 10 Muscle Ups. My prediction is 130 reps. We shall soon find out!!!!
