WOD Helen, 2nd Time

With my week all sorts of messed up and my schedule for yesterday especially tight, I decided to give Helen another go. My first go around was 3/3/09, and I made it in 13:22.8

Second go was 9:47.26. I know it's not a blazing time, but crap, it totally knocked me out for the rest of the day!! Dinner plans with the fiance went out the door (to her chagrin), but at least I PR'd

Re: WOD Helen, 2nd Time

Not a blazing time? I dont know where these firebreathers squeeze more time from? I got 10:01. That 1 second bugs the crap out of me. LOL. We're newbs I guess. I should've ran faster that last round. I dont see squeezing more time out of the KB's or pullups...I did them straight thru.

Anyway - good doing.

Re: WOD Helen, 2nd Time

Thanks John, same to you!

I'm thinking kipping pull ups will definitely save us some time. I couldn't really kip because the only bar available was on a rickety power rack at the local highschool I coach at.

Re: WOD Helen, 2nd Time

That's a hell of a time. I was doing my first Helen today at a globo when a sow walked in and stole the treadmill so she could walk at 2mph. As ****ed as I was, it was kind of a relief. The date with Helen wasn't starting off real well.

Re: WOD Helen, 2nd Time

wow, awesome time Michael.. and without kipping? nice.

Helen always takes me out of commission for the rest of the day too, luckily I do the WOD in the evening.

Re: WOD Helen, 2nd Time

Tony, that's the worst (I work at a Globo so I know the feeling). I'm lucky because I have the keys, so I end up doing the workouts after/before hours a lot of times so there's less distraction.

Michael, I tried kipping as much as I could, but I seriously thought the power rack was going to tip over on me haha.

Thanks for the encouragement guys! I wish I could say I had the same success with Danny today...I only got 2 rounds.
