Over the Overhead Squat

went to bed way too late last night. Tired getting up this morning but dragged myself to the pool. Did my usual warmup of 100, then 300 worth of drills. Then swam a 1000 in 24:42.  wasn't really feeling that great swimming today.  maybe cuz I was tired.  Crossfit workday today was Nancy but I changed the 400 meter runs to rowing to save my feet a bit.  So 5 rounds of row 400 meters and 35 lb Overhead Squats. Time 13:35.  I can't believe I am going to say this but overhead squats were not that bad this time. I think I will go heavier on them next time. I was able to get through all of these without breaking any of the sets. Did my usual bike commuting. Ended up coming home in a rain storm. going to get some new sneakers and see if that helps my feet at all.

The picture is of my new swim watch. It is the Timex Ironman Sleek 15 with tapscreen. I mostly use it for swimming and use my garmin for GPS and heart rate things. The Ironman is much easier to wear as an everyday watch because it fits much better than the clunky garmin. I have had a few issues with it when biking, if you bump it when riding or if you hit a pothole really hard it laps. I have to check if it has a lock function for the tapscreen so i can lock that out when needed.  


  1. I agree with you on the overhead squats. I actually like them better than regular squats, even though I've only done them once.

  2. whoa dan! I wouldn't go that far! They are still my least favorite amoung the squat series, I just hate them less than I used to.

  3. Maybe I like them because I've only done them once?

  4. maybe dan or you just have really good flexiility.
