  • If I can't reasonably do the workout, then blow it off and then lovingly mock my friends when they do it, acting as if I could have done it better. Give them all sorts of advice about what they should do or should have done, even though I can't do it myself.
  • Make excuses about how I would have totally killed that workout if only my knee, elbow, ankle, shoulder, or self-esteem wasn't injured.

All sarcasm aside, it sounds like it's going to be a chipper from the little commercial they posted.

All sarcasm aside, aside, slow and steady? Make a plan and stick to it? When the plan fails and you realize you can't break everything up the way you had hoped, start putting your hands on your lower back like you're still nursing an injury from 14.3 and shrug your shoulders at people that tell you to keep going.

13.3 except for the elites was a chipper of sorts.. 150 wall balls, 90 D/U's and 30 Muscle ups.. they might have two of three events in this one.

Getting excited about 14.4!

I do it on Thursday nights that way I can be fresh again on Monday for the re do if needed.

14.1- no re do
14.2- 1st 189 and 2nd one 190
14.3- 1st 136 and 2nd one 141

Glad I did both of them.. that 1 reps and that 5 reps was a bunch of points in the reverse way.

1. Sweet potato hash browns for breakfast.
2. Wear cool socks.

After the announcement, I may develop a more specific strategy.

Shoes on or shoes off ?

I already have my white shorts on under my sweats. All I need to hear is 10,9...
With only 10 seconds I can't pace myself taking the sweats off. All out in one move and hope the shorts are still there. I might upload the video for judging purposes.
Oh and for the WOD- Take Rich's score divide by 2 add 1- bingo!

Isn't that what tear away basketball pants are for,that would have been so much cooler. Are those still around?

Surprised that they did that. So much for the garage gymmers without rowers.....

I'm currently carb loading with some Sierra Nevada watching basketball and the live announcement.
