[I][B] Info from the South East Qualifiers...

[/B][/I]Christin Street is in 11th place out of 41 Female Masters with the conclusion of the Masters Events yesterday from the South East Qualifiers. Results from the Canada Quals are still pending. She managed to pull off this amazing performance while dealing with a nasty case of plantar fascitis (SP?), and finished 3rd in the C2B "Cindy" event yesterday.

Way to ROCK IT, Christin!

5/29 WOD

Murph. 48:57 as Rx'd (no weight vest).

Couldn't be happier with my performance. My goal was to get on the white board, which I figured would take 55 to 57 minutes. Secret "please God I have to beat this" goal was one hour. I figured if I aimed for 10 minutes per split, I'd be in the vicinity of a good time; I knew I could do the runs and the pull-ups within 10 minutes, but the rest were unknown. First mile done in a little over 8 minutes, very relaxing. Pull-ups OK. Started with 15, then 10, then quickly devolved to 2-4 between rests. Ripped open a callous at #83. Yuck. Push-ups devolved to 2-3 between rests at about 100. They were the worst part of this WOD. At about squat 100, I started going slow (lock knees, quick breath at top) and found I could go for 40 or more between breaks. At squat 200 I tried another good rhythm: 10 slow (quick breath at top of each), then 10 quick, then rest at 30 or 40. Final mile not too bad. Thanks to Hogans for running the first lap of the last mile with me, and thanks Zach, Migs, (someone else?-I was a little dazed ) for running the last lap. Worked on POSE in second mile, and it seemed to click in for me.

Glad to have this behind me. I'm on the white board!

Thanks Stephen. And now that you identified your picture as coming from Disneyland, I see it! Time to go to Disneyland again and get a little Goofy!

6/1 WOD

“Elizabeth”
21-15-9 Reps of:
Squat Cleans (135#/95#)
Ring Dips

13:46 @ 105#. This is as close as I've ever gotten to waking up at 5:20 am, then bagging the workout and going back to bed. My arms are still very sore from Murph on Saturday, thee days ago now. I could not straighten them in the warmup, so no pull-ups or K2E's for me, and my med ball cleans were with unstraightened arms. On Elizabeth I selected my Grace weight, and still had three or four missed reps. I also had problems getting full range of motion on the ring dips, so probably only a small fraction of my reps were totally legit. My goal was simply to finish, period; which I did.

Some days you're the windshield, and some days you're the bug. Today was definitely a bug day for me.
