Breck finished second at the Southwest Regional.
Beaten by Dutch Lowy.
Breck had best times for WOD1 and WOD3, but Dutch did an absolutely amazing WOD2 time of 3:12 for 50 chest-to-bar pull-ups and 50 Burpees. I think Breck had 3rd best time on WOD2, but was about a minute slower than Dutch on that WOD. I did not see Dutch's workout, but I am sure he must have done the 50 pull-ups and burpees all unbroken to get that time. Breck did 38 pull-ups before his first break. He had no breaks on the 50 burpees. I cannot imagine how their bodies do not scream out STOP!!!!!!!.. or how they ignore that scream.

Morning Everybody,
Man I feel like Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend. No PT and no Zone. The family reunion was fun and we ate southern style. I think the dessert table was bigger than the entree table...mmmm real banana pudding. Anyway, my part-time nanny has lost her mind and bailed on me this week (on no notice BTW), so I'm gonna have to figure out a way for my 4 year old to work the stop watch and call time for a Tabata later...

Charlie, Thanks for the [SIZE="6"]SHOUT OUT[/SIZE]. I think it was a typical combination of airplanes, guns and assorted sized bombs. Have you ever been inside a HMMWV when the .50 was firing? The voice inside your head gets really loud with good advice, like "MAKEITSTOP!"

Mark, Man, you have been busy. Good, solid work and consistant. I'm extra jealous.

Stephen, The gymboss works really well. Quite a bargain for $20. I paid 3 times that for a swimming lap timer that got returned after one use. I really like gadgets, much to my wife’s chagrin.

Today - 05/04/09

This morning was the first 6AM GROUP workout on the North Shore. There were [B]two 20-year-olds[/B] (both female collegiate athletes), [B]a 24-year-old[/B] (male), [B]a 28-year-old[/B] (male) [B]and me[/B].

We stuck to basics but it was non-stop misery for an hour. Our "rest" was holding a squat position!!! And I'm SO COMPETITIVE that I was determined not to be shown up by youngsters so I pushed until I was about ready to keel over. I held my own well and was 2nd-best during the the push-ups and I wiped the floor with them on sit-ups. The one guy called me "Bionic Abs". The problem began when I got home and almost couldn't get out of the car. And about an hour ago I knelt down to put away some groceries and I almost couldn't stand back up. I'm really not sure how I'm going to do this five days a week.

Maybe some broccoli will help! :broc::broc::broc:

Glad it's just not the guys with ego problems. Nice job beating on the young ones!!

Flew today. Pretty tired and now my head is ringing like a bell. Think I'll defer the WOD until tomorrow AM.


Never "make it stop" but have had a couple of "mama, I don't want to be a pilot anymore" situations. As far as hearing problems go, a few years back I had to go see the audiologist. He told me I had a hearing loss in the frequencies that happen to coincide with a woman's voice. So now I have a doctor's excuse to not hear what my wife is saying. :rofl: Then he told me that that kind of loss was usually from exposure to loud machine noises. (Duh, go figure) Then to top it off he asked me, while I was standing in front of him , in uniform with pilot wings in full view, where I might have been exposed to high machine noise levels. Sharp as the leading edge of a bowling ball. :bonk:

I need more broccoli :broc::broc::broc:
