We’re getting induced today at 8am! Really excited to meet the new addition to the family. Since I’m pretty sure I won’t get a workout in tomorrow (Thursday), I was up early before we needed to leave the house.


50-40-30-20-10 reps for time of:

  • Double Unders
  • Situps

I really pushed the pace on both parts. Ended at 6:51, which is still far off my PR. Not quite sure how I can go faster.

Finished with some jump rope accessory work.

2 rounds of 1 minute each:

  • Double Under
  • Single Under

I need with 391 total reps.


Since we’re not sure when this baby is going to get here, I decided to knock out Murph today. No vest this year, which is totally okay with me!

I started off with a 10 min EMOM of 2 strict HSPU to add 20 to my yearly total. They felt pretty easy honestly, but I can tell I didn’t do any last week! Positioning didn’t feel great.

Then, it was Murph:

1 mile run then:

  • 100 Pull-ups
  • 200 Push-ups
  • 300 Squats

Followed by a 1 mile run

I partitioned the reps into 5/10/15 like normal, but everything was off from the start. I ran past the mile marker unfortunately which added a minute or so to my time. Then, I just wasn’t feeling it during the in gym portion. Finished in 37:13, which was disappointing as I was hoping for sub-35. Still, got it done!


Started off with 30 muscle-ups for time after I watched a colleague of mine and wanted to try his strategy.

Last time, I opened for sets of 5 on the minute. This time, I tried 3 reps every 30 seconds. I made it through 21 at maybe 3:15, right on pace. I ended up resting until 3:45 though and continued every 30 seconds. At 4:45, I went for my last set of 3 and missed my very last rep. 😔 Hopes back up and finished at 5:22 for a :58 second PR!

Then, I did the workout of the day:

3-6-8-10-12-10-8-6 reps for time of:

  • T2B
  • Alt DB Snatch (50#)

10 Cal Assault Bike after each full round.

Time: 14:43. Took a relatively leisurely pace because the AB felt tough! Only broke the set of 12 T2B (7/5).


As a bit of an extended warm-up, I did six sets of the following on a 12:00 clock:

  • 10 Goblet Squat (50#)
  • 16 Alternating Goblet Reverse Lunge
  • 20 Glute bridges

Then, I moved on to the main piece.

E2M for 10 minutes:

  • 15 DB Front Squats (50s)
  • Max Double Unders in remaining time

My DU sets went 90, 70, 75, 65, 50. Those front squats got a bit tough!!


We were over at the Wilson’s house to discuss some gym stuff so Zach and I got after a partner WOD in his garage. Felt good to get on a barbell again!

With a partner for time:

  • 60 Deadlifts (265)
  • 80 Pull-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)
  • 40 Deadlifts
  • 60 C2B Pull-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)
  • 20 Deadlifts
  • 40 Bar Muscle-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)

I can really tell that I haven’t touched a barbell in quite some time. All of my calluses are gone! I didn’t quite feel normal when I was kipping on the bar either. Towards the middle of the muscle-ups, I started to tear in both my hands so we switched to toes-to-bar, which worked out fine. Time was 19:11.


Feeling good coming off of a rest day yesterday. Quinn was also back in daycare today, which is a great relief. We finally have time to workout on our own again.

We had to pick up something from the gym so we actually went in there for a workout. Great to be back in the gym if only for a short time!


Over 15:00, work up to a 5RM back squat.

Since I haven’t squatted with a barbell in some time, I took this a bit easier than normal. I worked up to 255 and 265 for my heaviest sets of 5. Felt good!


Every 3:00 for 4 sets:

  • 75 Double Unders
  • 25 Wall Balls

Rest remainder of time.

My first three sets were on point. I finished right at 1:40 with everything going unbroken. The wheels came off during my last set 😂 I broke my DUs once and the wall balls 3x (10/8/7). This was a tough metcon!!
