Slick Moves

I woke up to a text message that school was two hours late. Overnight the sky let loose with freezing rain and coated every surface with an icy terror. Driving is a dicey prospect in these conditions. Accelerating is not the problem; stopping is. And, as with the first anyweather of a season, people travel with amnesia of the danger. I want a "Stay back 50 feet" sign like you find on road graders.

I managed to make it to work without incident, taught half of my students, and headed out for what was sure to be a phenomenal training session.

I trained yesterday for about 45 minutes, so I wasn't sure what to expect today. I had snuck in a little extra sleep when I realized I didn't have to jump out of bed. In fact, I don't remember any yawns today.

Heavy Ballistics tested the best.

Circuit - 7 Rounds - 25 min. 40 secs

Dbl KB Cleans - 32 kg (70 lbs.)
82 reps = 5740 lbs.

Dbl KB Swings - 40 kg (88 lbs.)
185 reps = 16,280

Pushups / Planks
20 Pushups
5 X 40 secs Planks

Without factoring in the pushups or planks, I moved 22,020 lbs. Anyone know how to figure in the pushups and planks for a volume measurement?

In any case, my training can be described in one word. Slick.

Like the roads.
Like the day.
