Allan,
www.dynamic-eleiko.com (http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com) has sizing info for their Adidas shoes. They recommend you go by your dress shoe size and NOT your running shoe size.

Robert,
do you think following just the OL portion of Burgener's WOD and then following it with the CF WOD is too much?

Or should I just alternate the Mike's Gym WOD and teh CF WOD?

I would say that the answer for the really high rep WODs like Annie is a combination of "be patient dude" and NOT selling out on the first set of the exercise.

I'd probably run 5-10 k and call it good enough. Or maybe take the dog for a 2 hour hike.

I'm not going to risk an injury by running that far over the longest runs I'm used to running.

My wife, brother, and I all train out of my garage gym. We have to take turns doing our workouts, so we each have 2 counters watching. It does indeed help having someone there watching every rep.

The KB floor press is what I plan on subbing. I'll use the 24 KG bells. The slight increase in weight to 106# should offset the slight decrease in range of motion.
