    Shout out to Dave for being a great example of teammate.

    Also we just had a fire drill at work. As I was coming up the stairs with a coworker he was telling me how he had been to a spinning class in the morning and his legs were fried. Then when we reached the fifth floor where we work he said, “wow I’m dying and you aren’t even winded.” I think you should all be proud of your efforts today. Now you know you can probably take most “spinners” in a staircase race 😉

      Many thanks and apologizes to the 7a group and the coaches.

      My performance was certainly less that acceptable and is something that I will learn from moving forward. My mental blocks and attitude pretty much set me up for failure (though Dave had no intention of letting that happen 🙂 ) from the beginning. This is something that I am going to work on to be a better athlete.

      Again, I appreciate everyone’s support.

      Dave R, you are a monster. That is just flat BAD ASS!! Nice work!

    I look at Sean (whose handle I suggest he shorten to “Tank”) and see nothing but power. You have it in you.

    This was a very mentally and physically challenging workout. Keep ’em coming coaches!

    • Tank | October 29, 2009 at 1:23 pm

      Agreed and done!

  4. train2live | October 29, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    Hey thanks for the shout out, but the kudos goes to Sean for finishing that workout. I knew you had it in you. Nice job!!

    BTW, I love the new handle!! TANK Nice.


    Yeah, awesome workout today coaches. I am still feeling pumped from it and if there was 135lb barbell infront of me right now I would be clean squatin’ it.

    oh, this looks like a fun WOD!
    but today im doing my own WOD at home:

    AMRAP in 24h: sit on ass, eat, nap. im going for a PR!

    keep squattin’!


  6. StuLu | October 29, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    Rest today…but I want to tackle this one tomorrow in the hotel. It looks too good to pass up.

    God I miss you all! Really. Now when I travel I have the emptiness of being without my wife and little girl as well as the hollow shell of a WOD without my team.

    I need a hug.
