Josh in the Gym: One Helen of a Monday

Started off Saturday with some work on the Track. Tim prescribed a 30 min Run for distance, which was fine, however I didn’t expect it to be 90+ degrees on the track! The heat was sweltering and that was the toughest part of the whole trial.

TrackTook a 4 hour break, then… Team High Voltage practice!

It’s so great having a team to support you and to go through the same struggles and triumphs that you do. We had a great session on Saturday. It started off with some heavy Clean and Jerks, and moved into a team WOD, and finished up with a nice little MAP session.

The best part about Saturday was the overwhelming camaraderie that filled the gym. Everyone reaches new heights with the help of friends. Today’s blog is a simple one. Thanks Team High Voltage. You guys really made Saturday special and intimate. I love training with you guys.

See what I did there? Nice. So today I wanted to knock out one of this week’s trials, Heavy Helen. I tried to stick to what I’ve been doing lately. Most of my training has been pretty aerobic considering the fact that I have a triathlon in 2 weeks, so I didn’t want to over-do it this week. I tried my best to keep Helen aerobic and focused on breathing and pacing. It went fairly well, but the competitor in me always wants to do better ;).

Four hours later, I had the chance to work on some gymnastics and hit a solid structural session with Coach Katie. I felt like the core work will really help in the future. I was ready to quit, when the “Ocho” spontaneaously popped up and wanted to rock a MAP session with me. Everyone stepped up and crushed it. It was rough. Props to the Wolfpack… and Matt ‘The Lat’ Kloeris.

I’m listening to smooth jazz now, due to the fact that I’m so satisfied with today’s training :).
