    Congratulations are immediately in order for David “702” O. A seven-minute effort over 2000 meters is one of our gold standards for fitness and capacity in general–maybe, roughly equivalent to a three-minute “Fran,” though entirely different in its demands. It is truly an elite time, and, incidentally, 43 seconds faster than the last time he completed this workout.

    He was one-half of one stroke shy of 6:59, and will no doubt achieve that benchmark when this workout comes up again.

    Thanks. I see on my workout log that I have a new name “David ‘702’ O”…nice way to rub it in…I mean motivate me. Frankly, I think the reason I didn’t hit the 6:59 mark was because you neglected to tell me “don’t ‘F’ this up” before I started. I was completely off my game as a result.

    But seriously, thanks for pushing me. I had no Idea how I was doing until the last 500 meters when when you mentioned I was in the 6 min neighborhood. I could not have reached this mark without your coaching. Many thanks. Let’s do better next time…I am counting on you!

    David “702” O.

    I witnessed David “1:45.5 500m split for 2000m” O. and Neal and they were both heroic efforts – as was Joe’s, obviously. Neither David nor Neal watched the monitor – which I think would be grueling during the last 1,000 meters. Just for fun, and motivation, here are the world records (I need to shave off 1:49) by age, sex and weight:

    Consider that a standing order–“don’t $%!# this up.” Ever.

    holy sh*t.

    nice job, 702.

    Well according to the website Ted posted, I only have 1:05 to trim off my time to have the record for my age and weight…he says only…that is a lot of time.

    Ok coach, I hear you loud and clear.

    Congrats 702. Thanks for giving him the green light with his form of “motivation!” lol

    My stopping one row short has unrelentless nagged at me all day today. I totally “put the bar down.”

    Great job David!
