Squad toted some weight today in our first phase conclusion maxes! S/O Coach Grummet for a great program and to Tyler Douglas with that 675lb Squat! I increased 105lbs, 550lb Squat, 550lb Deadlift, and 345lb Bench. Once again, thanks to the man, myth, and legend @calebgrummet ! #W1N#OCFB#lifting
Did a thing and ran the @uberendurancesports Boulder Field 50k on Saturday. I'm a little sad I missed out on an epic @spartanrace Ultra Beast in Killington but I made the decision not to run it after completing it last year so I'm not too mad...congrats to everyone who finished and accomplished their goals! This 50k chewed me up, spit me out and scrambled me all over the plate a few times. First 13 mile loop was a bit hilly, 90% of the race was technical and my hip/calves were just not having it anymore after 11 miles. My goal of 5:30 slowly diminished and eventually turned into just trying to beat my 50k PR. Well, despite running the last 1.5-2 miles HARD at a 7'30" pace (don't ask, I really don't know how), I still missed my time by 2 minutes.....but hey, I earned 2nd place 🥈 in the M18-29 AG so that's definitely a huge #W1N!!! I've never won anything until this year and recently I've taken home some smaller victories. No checks, no wins in any elite heats, no coins, but it's nice to know I'm making some progress. I didn't have a great race but I'm already looking at the Blues Cruise 50k in 13 days for redemption....hoping all these long runs will do me some good for Dallas Spartan UB, NYC Marathon and Devil Dog 100k coming up. Also check out this nifty little German weather house finisher award!! 😁 #spartanEZ#thecrewocr#medalmonday#growler#spartanrace#ocr#obstacleracing#spartantraining#boulderfield#trailandultra#trailrunning#enduranceathlete#hybridathlete#crossfit#strengthrunner#liftandrun#dowhatyoulove#v1ktorathletics#v1ktorathlete#V1KTOR#hammernutrition#howihammer
Had a great day at the Iron Man Expo in AC at the V1ktor Athletics tent. Great to finally meet Dave, Stacey and her son. Always a pleasure to work along side DeeAnn, Camille, Kimberley, Michele, Jen and Jeremy!
P.S. That Spartan Dough Boy burger... Was insanely delicious
Today we celebrate. 200k miles on the way home from my first official MTB race. I have an intense fear of organized events and social gatherings where there are lots of people. So yeah definitely stepped out of my comfort zone. Apparently I don't like change either and have had my car a while too. Either way, we celebrate this #w1n#toyota#hybrid#comfortzone#fearsconqured
