Welcome John Rossman!!

[quote=Deb Borbone;925877]yeah. hard to believe your arms wouldn't be shaking all over after the burpees. I guess locked out is locked out enough to keep the bar up there ;). How much time was left when you finished burpees?
My coach got almost a whole round, he thinks the burpees gotta be done unbroken, w/ 5 minutes or more left.... get as many OHS as possible - not that heavy... he thinks he can get into the 2nd round Saturday... Well see how our girls do. 90 isn't heavy we have some strong girls. its just after the burpees... and then none of them can do muscleups so I dunno what happens then.[/quote]

My instructor told us to keep moving! It took me around 7 min to get the burpees (Yay! Burpees!) done. It may have been 7:30. I had little idea about time & my whole body felt tanked after the burpees (Yay! Burpees!). If I had been a little fresher, I could've done more OHSs! you also have to try to be efficient as possible. My head was REALLY close to the bar at times.

[quote=Michelle Simpson;926064]Nice job William!!

We did a sort of prep wod for the official one yesterday.
[B]4-13-11[/B]
3 rounds for time: 25 minute cut off, I made 2 full rounds and 26 reps
20 head to bar burpees
10 ohs (75# for me yesterday)
3 mu's OR 5 mu transitions
I don't think I have to worry in the least bit about the fact that I cannot do a MU. I just want to make it through the burpees and on to a couple of OHS. I did one OHS at 85# just to mentally check the weight and I should be able to do them.

Michelle-Way to go on theat games WOD prep & the WOD! I was hoping that doing the games open WODs would step up my game a little and you're doing it!! Awesome! Also, good job on the 400m walking lunges! (1.72m per lunge! Not bad!) We did those back in September, which wasn't bad. I didn't bother to count the steps! BUT the next day, the WOD was 18" jumps & I was useless doing them!

Tim- Glad to see you're able to do WODs with your injury!! Always remember to scale. (I always have to tell myself that when I'm dealing with injuries!)

Jim Colby - great run/pull up couplet! How do you keep your heart rate so low? I'm jealous!! ;)

Wilfredo - Awesome Tabata score! i have a love/hate relationship with Tabatas!! When are you planning to run the 5K? They are usually pretty easy to run with relatively little preparation, IMHO.

John J - Love your Dead lift numbers! Awesome!

42kg/1+0
47kg/1+1 (2) (short stepping these, so much hard to split at the shed)
47kg/1+0
52kg/1+1 (2) (missed jerks, these are easy for me, I had them, but lot going on in the shed, people walking all over, got half an ear on the games stuff, or someone else doing something amazing. I realized I'm not focused enough w/ all that going on, hopefully it'll teach me to focus better.:))
52kg/1+0 (2)
55kg/1
Cleans were not bad at all. Missed one at 52, didn't release the bar, doh, just did it over it was fine. Much easier than when I first started these.

These didnt seem hard.

[B]Backsquat[/B]
Left the Shed (they needed the barbell) and squat at home.
Legs still toast from Thurs. - quads never really sore just maybe tight and fatigued? But hams and adductors... My legs felt like Lundquist's today. & right knee feels like a touch of bursitis or something.

Nice job on 11.4 [B]Claw[/B]! Saw on FB. Deeper is harder & better :)....
(Saw some of this wod at the box and one of my gymmates mentioned that some of the people OHS were too high; seems like people tend to make their stance way too wide to compensate for heavier weight, they're wearing vibrams, and dont keep their weight in their heels. No choice but to squat high, have your hips back, and/or tip forward. I noticed the scores of one of my gymmates in particular is a little less than the other guys, but his squats, just GORGEOUS!!! so damn deep, long admired.)

4/16 WOD

Open Wod #4
AMRAP 10
60 Over bar burpees
30 OHS @ 120#
10 Muscle Ups

60 burpees + 4 OHS. Disappointing. Burpees took about 6 minutes, and then I could only get 4 OHS in remaining 4 minutes. Very heavy for me. Traver was judging me, so I had to get full depth on them, and I did, which was the one bright spot in the WOD. Had a couple drinks and ate like crap last night. Really not a good idea before a hard morning WOD.

Thanks William..It turns out I'm doing a 4 mile run and it's on June 12, called the Survivor Harbor 7 run. Registered today - no turning back. Now, I know this is a pretty easy race for those who run. I'm not a runner, just started training, but have decided, that after watching so many NYC marathons, becoming inspired, and then feeling as if I'll never be able to run a marathon...I'm taking the leap. I'm starting with this to see how I like it. Who knows? I may catch the bug..and run cross country...:run:

WOD 4/16

Hanson 5 rounds for time

30 Kettlebells (scaled) 3@25 / 2@35 = a little bit of a wimp
30 Burpees (completed 12, then switched to push ups b/c of sprained ankle) :censored:
30 sit ups on mat (scaled, instead of GHD, have to practice)

Time: 39:38

It's hard being a newbie. I want to be the best already! :ranting2:

An ego is a terrible thing to have. But not giving up yet. Registered today for my first run...4 miles..got to start somewhere.
