Instead I've been mixing exercises and sets up to complete as fast as possible. Think my time when doing it strict is another 10 mins +.
Well I can't comment, the thoughts of a 25+ min metcon sickens me.

The crossfit open starts this week, (today actually I think). see as you are doing that style of workout, you should do the weekly open WOD as one of your workouts.
I mentioned it to Lloyd and we'll gonna do a thread on here just for the open. Should be fun.

It was torture all the way through. Was expecting to see 50 mins + when, or if, I got to the finish line Vision actually started to get a bit blurry around km 8 but it didn't last too long.

Confident I can hit the 45:xx in my next race in Feb on the back of that. Felt great after but body shut down a couple of hours later. Much worse than my usual hangovers so won't be doing that again!
28/02:

10km race @ 45:21. Delighted with the time. Vast improvement on PB (1:20) and didn't even feel like I was going that great throughout it. Was out Friday night and had smoked a lot over the weekend so my breathing was a struggle throughout. I have another one next weekend so hoping a week smoke free will bring me down to 44:xx.

Making good progress with 2016 goals so far so going to rejig them somewhat:

Ran a 5km in 20:53 this month so the new target for the year is 19:xx.

Ran a 10km in 45:21 so the new target for the year is 42:xx.

I'm around 75.5kg at the minute but I'm currently cutting. I think 74kg is more likely to be my maintenance level.

Haven't got involved with the club yet but will do soon with the weather making it a more attractive proposition.

Hit 19 recently so the new target for the year is 30.

PB so far is 5:45. I'll aim for sub 5 mins for the year.

8 jumping chin-over-bar pull-ups

Men lunge 20kg
Gave the Crossfit Open first workout a go. Got 13 rounds in for a total of 338 reps which places me 126th out of around 30,000 based off this: http://games.crossfit.com/leaderboard. However I checked the last page and none of them had completed a round so not sure why they submitted. Hard to know the actual number of people who tried it properly. Anyways I should be happy with it Will aim for top 1% every week.

Good session overall. Legs were wrecked for the squats but found the mile run easy. Definitely can go under 5 mins next time out. Have another 10k race on Saturday so will take it easy next 2 days.

10km race @ 45:31. Happy with this as the course was a lot hillier and there was a strong wind at times.

Not so sure now if this was accurate. Thought I'd try and hit 5 flat today so set the treadmill to 12mph but only managed 2:50 mins or about 900m so I'm thinking I might have made a mistake with that PB because it felt quite comfortable too. Still think I can break 5 mins in 2016 but it will require good bit of training. Took a 5min rest and finished with:

400m@12mph, 2min rest, 400m@12mph, 2min rest, 300m@12mph, 1 min rest, 200m@12mph

09/03:

Filthy 50: 50 reps of each set before progressing (timed):
50 x 60cm box jumps
50 x jumping pull ups
50 x 20kg kettlebell swings
50 x walking lunges
50 x knees to elbows
50 x 20kg push press
50 x back extensions
50 x 9kg wallballs
50 x burpees
Time: 29:47 (4:58 faster than last attempt)

Difference in time would be mainly down to doing jumping pull ups instead of normal ones and no weight on the lunges compared to 20kg in previous attempts.

Good job, I really need to just man upo and do it. the thoughts of 30mins are killing me though.

Have you had a look at Crossfit open 16.2 yet? I'm going to do it today I think

On the fence, I tried do some squat cleans earlier and I just don't have the form so probably won't risk it.

Probably a good idea, full cleans aren't really best learn at high reps, high intensity when fatigued.

11/03:

Bench: 82.5kg*2, 70kg*10,8,10 (was expecting to have 3*5 in me but it felt way too heavy. Realised then my energy stores were low so changed plan of workout and just went with weights)
Incline bench: 50kg*10,10,9
Max push ups: 18
Press: 40kg*8,8,7
Preacher curls: 20kg*3*10
Lat Pulldown: 80kg*3*10
Side raises: 7.5kg*3*10
Max pull ups: 15
Dips: +15kg*2*10

Just wasn't with it today. Press and bench much weaker than normal. I also have a niggling tightness in right glute for the past 2 weeks that is making me cautious of doing squats. I've been using foam roller for a couple of mins during every session and I can feel the knots in there. Plan on foam rolling the shit out both glutes tomorrow. Off on holidays on Wed - Mon so I will get recovery time then but might be forced to take it easy in the mean time.

DB bench: 17.5kg*3*15
Incline DB bench: 17.5kg*3*15
Pull ups: 3*15
DB shoulder press: 20kg*15,13,12

Had planned to do a different workout but glutes were in bad way so just did small bit of upper body again. Going to take the next week or more off and hopefully foam rolling and stretching will sort me.
