Thanks to Ro for the help on the last interval. Needed it and it paid off.

6:30 with McDowell, Ro, and Whit (!). Totally botched my barbell math so my Wendler sets were all over the place. Ended up doing 140#x3 175#x3 (doh!) and 185#x10. I like to believe that I might have had a little extra gas for a couple more reps at 185 had I not upped the weight too much on the second set, but so it goes.

75# and jumping pulls ups for the wod, finished in 4:26. All squats unbroken except the set of 9, which I should have just worked through. I love it when met cons are over this fast.

Huge 6:30PM class! Love the spirit of this place. JakeL: thanks for sharing that story.

I still get very anxious about every new workout or skill practice but I was pleased to get up t 93x10 on the LBBS and I think I coulda done more -- that feels great. Much thanks to Whit H for excellent coaching/cueing.

The WOD killed me. 65lbs in 8:05. I took several breaks to laugh and cry. By the round of 9 I could barely rack the weight. 'Ro got me through it! I'm looking forward to doing this one again.

So now I'm home in the middle of my post-workout shake-it-out routine and I realize I need to change my answer to the QOD: I'd be a back-up dancer to Justin Timberlake or Janelle Monae. Or any Bollywood movie.

Today was awesome and also totally kicked my ass.

LBBS: 305x9. Left one in the tank after I got a little squirrely on rep 9.
WOD rx: 4:04. That totally kicked my ass in a good way. All FSQ unbroken, first 15 PUs unbroken, and then 6-4-2; 5-3-2, 3-3, 3. I think maybe I should have broken up the first set but I thought there was a chance I could do all unbroken. I want to come back to this one.
