12 strict reps @115 and a few close ones, man, that's pretty good work, regardless. I might have 2 at that weight.

John, I love your avatar. I have a snapshot of me swinging on a rope swing at a lake, from when I was 18. I'll have to dig it up out of the photo box and scan it. :)

Steve, I've been doing a lot of work like this lately, longer heavier work on strength and then quick, intense little WODs. Wonder how you feel it's working for you. This is the kind of thing Robb Wolf recommends as well.

John, thanks for your thoughts about this type of programming. It is a bit new to me and aside from having no endurance to speak of yet, I really like it. I had been following the Main Page for most of my CF workouts and threw in a bit of my own programming for the year I did CF at the globo. Most of what I did was obviously varied - - as short as "Fran" (for me, my best was 6:43 scaled) or "Diane," with ones as long as "the Kilo" which took me an hour and a half. I'd finish out my workouts with a strength or skill session which also varied, but I'd normally run out of steam after about an hour. When I had to stop the workouts last October, I was thriving on the WOD / strength program I'd been doing....

I apologize for the longish response.

That's quite a load of work you did today, Jeff. Congrats on the chin PR! That's awesome!
