Leader boards
Long Live the Leader Boards!

If you've got a score you think is worthy of the boards, please post it on the far left whiteboard located by the foam rollers.  Include your Name, WOD/Lift, Score and Date completed.  Only scores dating from the Degraw Street move forward are fair game.  Enjoy!

Today's front-squatting was a bit of a fail.

I'd done 165x3x3 plus the squat-run WOD on Wednesday and I think I'm still sore and tired from that. So, today, I couldn't get past 165 (and even that felt very heavy and difficult). I landed up doing:

WU: 45x5, 95x3, 125x3, 145x3

Work: 175x2, 155x3, 160x3, 165x2

Subbed 30-lb DB cleans for thrusters in burner WOD. Completed 7 rounds plus 10 cleans.

Front squat stayed at 185x3x3. Did this successfully with my knees out so I get to go up in weight on Wednesday.

Mini Wod at 30lbs. 5 rounds + 5 Left side thrusters and then 4 rounds + 5 Left and 1 Right side thrusters.

Fun having my parents in the gym today.

Well, that was humbling. Ended up scaling down a bit:800 m run w/ 40# bag30 pull-ups, blue band30 OH squats at 63#50 DUs30 KBs30 v-ups800 m run w/ 14# med ballin 28:48big thanks to asta for counting reps and especially for running with me on the last 800 so i didn't totally give up. it was hard to ever get air--i guess just because you can do the movements rested doesn't mean you can do them in a long, hot WOD. and weighted running, especially with hard to hold weird things, is super hard. lessons learned? bring more food and work longer chippers sometimes. i'm not sure that <10 min WODs are necessarily translating super well to this kind of longer domain.but good times. dan and asta did great.

Katie - it is awesome that you competed. Good job. I'm sorry I couldn't be there to cheer you on today!

DL: 200x5, 200x4.5 - got freaked out that my back might be rounding and got into my old head space and suddenly couldn't complete the last rep.

WOD with 20lb dumbells, push press for thrusters (hip. grr.) 1st: 6 rounds + 5 left &5 right, 2nd: 6 rounds exactly. Kept it light to try and go fast and to cater to the weaker left side. Probably could've gone heavier though.
