Graham, don't feel bad - I'm bringing up the rear on this one. Outside, Phoenix AZ 92 degrees & sunny. Had to do it barefoot thanks to yesterday's rowing induced blisters.

Situps + C&J @ 65#
Wallball 10#, 12' target
Subbed "rage ball" for box jumps
Subbed 45# hang snatches for swings
TGU + lunges @ 25#

A whopping 1 hr 47 min.
Hat's off to all of you - this one really blew!

I did the achesquall and I am still sore 2 days later. Would have posted sooner but I just moved down here to SD and my computer doesn't get here until Thursday. Wanted to say thank you to Jeff and all the Brand X people for letting me come out and do this horrible challenge with them. I didn't keep track of how long it took me, but it felt like an eternity. I can't wait for the next one! This was my first community crossfit experience and I loved it. The atmosphere over at Brand-X is wonderful. It's great to see all the different types of people there working out together while their kids are out back tossing medicine balls around.

Hey, Andrew! Glad you came up/down/over to Ramona (that ought to cover all the options). I was the short crazy person doing single pull ups from the wooden box for 20 minutes. ;)

Brand X is an AWESOME place to do CrossFit. PainStorm and the UK guys just seem to fit right in with our insanity.

I swear I'm doing this one this week. Maybe tomorrow.

Coming down to Pala on Thursday night. Look for me in the spa or at a video poker machine!

Ron,

You get your arse over to Brand X or i'm coming over especially to kick you in the bollocks!

Such a wonderful word that has millions of implications...

"I couldn't give a bollocks"
"That is the bollocks"
"OOO, what a kick in the bollocks"
"I am absolutley bollocksed"
"Bollocks is as bollocks does"

Ok last one was made up, but i love that word!!!

Did you get the 25 for my birfday old mucker??

No, but I got 15 with the push ups. 14 for my anniversary and one for you!
Total of 125 push ups in 15 minutes was painful to say the least!
Now sit ups; I might get to 25!

When you get over here for the CF cert in September, I might have to get down to Brand-X for a special appearance!

Nice work Ron,

I would take it as a personal affront if you did not come to shake hands and indulge in a beverage (or two) when me and Davie hit the big country...

:wink:
