21:24 95# Thrusters, 175# Trap Bar DL, everything else Rx'd

Did not want to go to heavy and chance risking another back and neck injury. Feel great post-WOD. Hopefully next time will go Rx'd.

Thanks for the coaching Margie.

Thanks for posting the times Dan!

The Snip Wilson memorial fun run was a blast. The weather was great, and I saw Fox, Jess, Dan and Asta at various points on the out-and-back course.

Finished with a blister on my arch and some arching knees, but otherwise everything went according to plan. Missed my target time by only 2:14, which seems pretty decent considering I didn't have a watch.

Hey everyone,Well this sucked, after all this time on the road I finally get to do a chipper and man was it tough! We're in Minneapolis at a place with a great gym that actually had everything I needed to do this WOD. The jump rope sucked, however, making double unders impossible. Total time was about 32 minutes. Thrusters @ 70 lbs, box jump 24", dead lift @155 with trap bar, 150 singles. Scaled deadlifts to only 15 as my back started to give. I am way out of shape! See you all in a couple weeks.

congrats to the half marathoners!! I have much respect for you.

Great effort today to small, but hard working crew.

Thanks for help on the setup/breakdown to my early and late classes.

Samir - glad you are still conscious. Oy.

Brooklyn Lyceum: 34:35 rx'd except for jumping pullups

almost 9 minutes faster than last time. Burpees are still a killer, everything else actually felt okay, especially compared to last time, which was a travesty.

Thanks to Margie for the coaching and setting the 35 min. target for me.

Congrats to all the runners, I'm hoping to be with you in the not too distant future.

Hard 1/2 marathon in the Bronx today. Got extremely lucky with the weather for summer in the Bronx. Congrats to everyone. Odyssey of the weird continues next weekend with Mt. Washington Bicycle Hillclimb:http://www.tinmountain.org/?page_id=1200

Yikes! Need to get to the Box and work on leg strength. STAT!
