[I]Clipped 1:36 off my last attempt on 18 Apr 2012! The plan was to keep a stead pace. I got the 1st mile done just under 9 min. The row was tough. It took me about 9.5 min. The last mile was brutal and I walked 1/2 a lap for the 6th, 7th & 8th lap. Still, the steady pace worked out well![/I]

Thursday October 10, 2013

Played 6.25 holes of golf.
Isn't golf normally played in 9 or 18 you ask?
Yes it is.

Today, I collapsed in the 7th fairway after being stung/bitten in the neck by an insect. While being stung/bitten I slapped myself so hard in the neck/jaw region that I practically knocked myself out. Had to plop right down in the fairway where I "rested" for 5 minutes. The world was spinning and I was seeing stars. I reached for the epipen in my golf bag and was ready to inject myself but didn't have any allergy symptoms, so I didn't inject. I reasoned, in my half-witted slapped silly state, that the self-inflected punch to the neck/jaw was the culprit, not an insect. After 5 minutes I was able to get up and "walk" to the next tee where, mercifully, there was a bench to sit on. After about 20 minutes a couple came by in a golf cart and offered me a ride. I wasn't scared. The whole time I was sitting crumpled in the fairway I was really embarassed and worried that someone would think I'd had a heart attack and would take me to the hospital or do CPR when I'd simply swatted myself right in the "lights out" nerve where the insect bit/stung me.

Oh my God JT, that is hysterical. I hope you are doing better now. Guess I can't ask, "what does the other guy look like?" Claw

10/11 WOD
10:00 Skill Session: Handstand Work
Got 4 handstand walk steps in a row!

5 rounds of:
7 CTB Pullups or 3 Ring Muscle Ups
14 Wall Balls
21 KBS
rest 2:00
17:50 at 1.5 pood

Increasing split times tell the story: 1:45, 1:37, 1:55, 2:08, 2:15. Tried to keep up with Lloyd but he edged me out.
A little janky on movements. First four sets of pull ups straight through, but only first set of WB's and none of KBS's straight through. Surprisingly, the KBS were the hardest part of WOD.

Michael - Thanks! My shoulder is the limiting factor!

Claw - awesome on the handstand walks!!

JT - What can I say that hasn't been said?!?! Talk about the cure worse than the disease!! Hope you're feeling better. At least that will be another good story..
