Two Weeks from Today

So Timberman is 2 weeks from today. Feeling ready, like I've been able to do some good work since Rev3. Nerves are beginning to creep up. I know I've done the distance before, so it's not that. It is the nerves of wanting to do well. I will do my best and give it my all and be happy (I say that now).

Last couple of results
Deadlifts, 7 sets of 1 rep max. Warmed up or so I thought and went 245,295(cranked my back a bit),315,325 failed, 320 failed, 295, 300. Got the two failed attempts to about my knees before stopping.

Back was tight, but not bad on Friday for Bench Press 1/2 body weight 21 reps, run 800m, bench press 15 reps, run 800, bench press 9 reps, run 800. Logistical reasons made me use the machine. Set it at #9 (90lbs.?). Finished in 11:16. Felt good in my new sneakers.

Yesterday was 50 step ups (25 each leg), 40 box jumps, 30 sit ups, 20 pushups, 10 burpees 2x for time. Finished in 11:47. Went to the pool and worked on my stroke. Actually swam faster breathing out of my right side. Feel like I can implement it at the upcoming races.

Today was supposed to be a 40 mile bike TT to practice nutrition/pacing for the race. Got a later start than I had hoped because I could not get my HR monitor to work. Went without it. Was only able to finish 5 loops in Central Park (30.1 miles). Took 1:35:10 for an average speed of 18.98mph. Came home and immediately did WOD # 2. 100 burpees for time. Finished in 10:21.
