The 14.3 Flu

I've made it through Week 3 of the Open! On Sunday morning, after coaching a huge 3-hour long Orientation, a few of the coaches and I tackled it ...

I have to say, 14.3 has been my favorite workout to date. But because I feared it would be pretty taxing on the CNS, I chose to only do it once. Sure, I could have squeezed out a few more reps had I re-done it and timed things differently, but oh well. I had FUN doing this workout, and to me, that's what it's about.

On my video (for submission), I'm even caught dancing at the end (I guess triples at 205 are exhilarating?), right before I throw myself into this crazy contraption ...

Decompressing the spine ... I tried this Saturday night, and moments after. I find that it almost acts as a poor man's inversion table. I'm excited to use it any time I go overhead as well (heavy jerks) when I feel super compressed throughout my entire spine afterwards. Give it a whirl, let me know what you think. (Goofy pictures are always appreciated).

Afterwards, I came home and splurged ... with s'mores!

And now? I'm sick as a dog. My body feels pretty good recovery-wise, but whatever this cold is that I have ... that's another story. Sore throat, nasty cough, ear aches, ugh.

How are you feeling after 14.3? Anyone break down with a cold?
