    10:59(RX) Great group at 8:30 this morning, stayed with Speedy the whole way and then made a final push to get her by 4 seconds. Nice job with the 155 today Juan. I tried to get 200 double unders but I was distracted by Juan’s short shorts and i only got 187.
    Also, great job with everyone at 8:30 who worked on some skills post WOD, great to see the dedication.

    attempted 13 DU and I was soo short of breath.I wasn’t sure I could do the WOD.
    Billy you make DU look so easy,you almost look pretty doing it:)
    ‘Wish I could be like you.

  3. Speedy J

    11:04(Rx)..I heard Billy’s feet, then his breathing..to close for comfort – got me! Great to join the 8:30 class this morning..thanks for the coaching tips Ramrod!

    @Ben: “Come and Take it” used to have a canoe race. Does it still?
    Yoga today. No joke. Shaking it up and lining up my shakras.
    Also running the dogs. A full body experience.

  6. Black'n'Blue/Triple B

    Started the WOD and popped my clavicle. The thruster part became painful after that so I ended up rowing a slow 2000m, 9:39. Thanks Daniel and everyone who stayed to encourage me along.

    Can’t wait to get back one more week and I should be healthy and ready! I look at the WOD’s every day and itching to take it on….patience is the key.

  8. Ben K

    @DirtyD nope no canoe race in this one just straight running…that sounds as if it may have been a fun element….One more day of Zpack and my battle with this stupid cold will be conqured. Cant wait to get back to the gym on Monday and get back on it! Thanks G for the photo and props!!

    Of course Juan and Billy did too!!
    Great job…Definitely need to work on my running!
    Awesome energy today at 830 as usual!!
    Double unders were terrible at 830…took another shot at noon and got 150 in 2 min.

    I was really sad to miss my Atomic Thursday but the day job prevented the workout this time. Maybe I’ll get to have Atomic Friday this week instead. Hey to the 4 pm class & Coach G.
