“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” –Theodore Roosevelt

  1. Was that not amazing. and everyone is 50 plus. That rocks.

  2. 13:13 Rx on todays WOD. Jakub was my pacekeeper on the cleans and MUs. I definetly would have rested more if he wasn’t fast on my heels the whole time.

    And to clear things up I did NOT get 10 rounds on the 7 min AMRAP last week. That was a typo. I got 5. I kept wondering why everyone was talking about how awesome I did when I didn’t really think it was a great performance.

  3. 16:55 Rx’d

    Found out today that I am taking way too long on my rest between reps. 4th round was a killer for me, and rest between reps was way too long. 5th round I stayed on the cleans even though it hurt. If I had done that the entire workout, I think I could have shaved another 1:30 off my time easy. But instead, I took the pansy route. Lesson learned.

    Was able to link all 5 muscle ups in every round, so I was happy about that. Worst part of this WOD was the run. Never thought 220 meters would feel so long.

    Thanks to Christina and Zan for the encouragement today! Always good to have someone yelling.

  4. 19:23 Rx’d
    I felt terrible today. This might have been a fun WOD on any other day. That run was brutal!

  5. 25:37
    4 rounds of:
    15 pull up
    15 bar dips (had to have my toes on the ground after the first round)
    75# power cleans
    220m run

    Lonnie killed me, finishing his 5th round when I finished my 4th, and I was dead.

    I think Christina yelled at me every other rep during my last two rounds, but that could just be because it all blurred together. Another great CFI workout.

  6. 24:41, 5rounds@ silver , 55lbs. This workout was fun untill i had to do the 220m run. Who would have thunk that would be the killer part. Thanks to Christina yelling at me to beat the clock I was able to finish strong and under 25 minutes! thanks!

    btw…I saw Brittany killing the double unders during the warm up! I was jealous! you go girl!
