    The run was like an obstacle course, many large puddles to avoid and had to concentrate on not busting my a** as my shoes had ZERO traction on the slippery road…
    Thanks JB for being my depth cop πŸ˜‰

  10. The Nomad

    16:32 Rx – struggled today but enjoyed the WOD.
    Had fun with the nooners!

  11. TC

    Nice change of pace going at noon!! I still hate running but felt pretty good on the first two laps!!! Nice pacing with Aida, JB, and the one and only Silverback!

  12. Lingo

    Randomly chosen from Eva T’s list of travel WoDs:
    Invisible Fran – 21-15-9 air squats and push-ups for time. 1:51.
    Thanks again to Teach for the recommendation. Off to PR (or as I like to think of it Aida-land) for a week. I will miss all of your sweaty, out-of-breath faces.

  13. Lingo

    Felt bad after looking at other people’s times, so I did the same workout again. 1:47.

  14. Silverback

    10:41 (Rx)
    nice welcome back WOD after a week & half off. Wolverine was way too fast for me to pace with & FPR caught up and passed me on back squats. Good job nooners!

    Hernan the B, letting you know you inspired me all the time during the WOD! It’s a compliment, Sir! I genuinely said that…

    FPR — T-Y for showing me how it’s done!
    Chrissy, you should have just done it again with us at noon!! Thank you!

  19. FPR

    10:38 (Rx)…Nice pacing with JB, TC, and Silverback. Awesome job Wolverine!!
    Thanks Barbella!! You’re funny…You did awesome and as always, very nice to see you!!
    Great job nooners!!
    Yeah…I’m glad I remembered to take my kids with me too..haha

  20. The Force (Kendra)

    15:53 (85#) I enjoy ring pushups as much as ring dips. Teach – thanks for “encouraging” me to do 85.

  21. chrissy c

    Barbella – I would have done it AGAIN at noon, had I done it at all earlier!!
    Nice job on those push ups – you got through them!

    11:40 (Rx)
    Thanks for the push on the rings Teach and HTB…and on the back squat – Weezy. Running hasn’t felt this good in a while.

  23. G

    @B-Jules and @Kaylynn
    Glad you gals could join the pacemakers today!
    Good to see Melanie, Chalkman, Wingman, C-Note, AK, Silverback, SOS, Weezy, Chris B, Toe, HD, 007, The Force, Rocky Top, Sarah H and JackRabbit back in action!
    TC – no worries, you made me laugh and I needed it =)
    Have fun in Aida-land Lingo!
    @JohnnyBaaad, good! That strategy worked on getting muscle failure on the ring push ups.
    @Arnold, stay with it for life…you’ll see marked improvement in performance, recovery, how you feel, and everything else.
    A good number of you did the ring push-ups for the first time! Good job on the milestone!

  24. G

    @JohnnyBaaad – I meant on NOT getting into muscle failure!
