    Felt good during the squats (165#) but the WOD nearly killed me. Misread snatch as cleans at first. Someone has to teach me how to kip the pull-ups. Strict pull-ups are killing me. 12:59 with 75# and one red band. Nothing left in the tank Shane.

    It was a fun game of chase with Mandy Brown! Her pullups are quite good!

    Great class, Eric! After these past 3 days, shampooing hair and driving are tough!

    HBBS – 315# (GOOD GOD) Joe made me do it. I may have flipped him off when he suggested it, but I’m glad to have coaches like him and Sam to push me. Each rep of the last set was preceded by what felt like an hour long conversation with myself that changed in attitude and tone every time.

    WOD – 12:24 Rx. It felt like I was moving like an exhausted turtle.
