Workout 5/22: DL+HSPU and 5k

So far this week there are no red marks on my training calendar. That's a huge improvement from last week. I think I finally worked out all the kinks and realized how to work them around my schedule. And right now, my muscles notice the lack of missed workouts. And that's a good thing!

Morning Workout: Deadlifts and Handstand Push-ups
5 Rounds (rest in 3-5 minutes between rounds as needed in the style of "Lynne")
255# Deadlifts x 3
Max. HSPUs
*(HSPUs per round = 10, 9, 5, 5, 4)*Photo courtesy of Physical Subculture. Notice how the shoulders and hips rise at the same "pace" without rounding in the back. That's near-perfect form.

Afternoon Workout: 5k @ 90% 1 Mile TT
Goal Pace: 7:41/mile
Actual: 3.06 Miles in 24:30.40 (8:00/mile pace)
*Looks like I have some work to do. However, the fact that I actually got out there to run this 5k was an accomplishment in and of itself. I have four accountability partners to thank for that (you know who you are). I think my body is still getting acquainted with CFE.

Nice pic on the DL form.

Good job on the workout!

That's Mieke doing the deadlift, a powerlifting state record holder in the APA. But you can blame me for the amateur photoshop job. This computer stuff is still new to me.

Chip, I think this is a great photo all-around. It demonstrates good form, and really represents the deadlift well. I appreciate what your site has to offer and show.
