What a weekend! FGB and Mtb!

I got ready for the weekend by doing a WOD Friday morning:

Run 400M
20 med ball cleans 14 lbs
26 sledgehammers
4 rounds
It was an easy WOD, just took time since I only have one speed on the sledge hammer.

After that, I went on easy bike ride through Umstead park to get to the Bicycle Chain where I test rode two bikes.  I wasn't ready to think about a new bike and now I'm not sure what would be best. Something with a little more style/uniqueness or something that is guaranteed to ride well?  Maybe both the Santa Cruz 5010 and the Specialized Camber will ride well, but it probably depends more on the rider! 

That gave me about 13 miles on Friday.

Saturday was the big day: Forged Gone Bad: 
Fight gone bad WOD
1 minute each
Push press 55 lbs
Row for calories
Wall balls 12 lbs
Sumo deadlift high pulls 55 lbs
Box step ups
Rest 1 minute and repeat 2 more rounds
Well, I wasn't feeling confident this year, I feel a little out of shape and not as strong but in the end, I did all right: score of 265, last year was 261!
Not a huge improvement but at least I didn't do worse this year!  Hopefully now that my back is improving, I'll be able to get back into lifting. It was still a great event and I still managed to be the top fundraiser :)

And then I went for a leisurely bike ride on the greenway and in downtown Raleigh with my favorite singlespeeder.  We did 27 miles and cancelled it all out by eating at Chubby's Tacos.  

And then some more singlespeeding today with a great ride at Warrior Creek where I rode for about 15 miles.  It was a great weekend with friends both at the gym and on the bike!  Now I'm toast and ready for a rest day!
