  1. 24:27 RX with Jeff. Thanks to all those who helped me get this done under the time cut off! Melissa W. I think I might hear “you just have… in my dreams tonight :)” thanks for all the help.

  2. 9:44 Rx’d with Christina. Enjoyed the programming. Medium to medium-heavy loads that required strength but also metcon. And to start it all off with a rope climb drill…very interesting.

  3. 20:46 Rx with Christina

    The one-arm KB snatch gave me a pretty good beating (they were really hard for me to complete and I have big bruises now on both forearms). I had to drop the KB almost every rep. Need to work on my overhead strength, its a glaring weakness of mine.

  4. 22:12 w/Christina. Rope climbs gave me the most trouble. Would like to try this one again after figuring out the most effective way for me to hit the beam. Also, I felt the kettle bell snatches got easier in round 2 and 3. Probably due to grip loss from climbing.

  5. 11:43 Rx with Christina as trainer. The squat snatch was the hardest. I thought it was going to be the KB snatch, but that ended up being okay once I got the hang of it.

  6. 16:36 with Christina

    Felt pretty good about the kb snatches, did rounds 2 and 3 unbroken on those. The barbell snatches absolutely owned me though. I wasted a ton of time on those. Was my first mecon in two months with clear lungs thanks to the worst sinus infection I’ve ever had. So it felt great to finally be able to breathe during a wod again. Feel like my mecon capacity has fallen off some due to the lack of consistent training past couple months. So glad to be healthy again!!!

  7. 14:32 with Christina

    I didn’t push myself at all and I know I could do better. I’m with Michael…going to try this one again at some point. After I let the bruises on my arm heal, that is…

  8. 14:51 with Jeff. Felt like he (and David) was breathing down my neck the entire time. Thanks bud. Saved a lot of grip strength by climbing the rope with my legs rather than my arms. A bit slower, but was able to link KB snatches consistently. And, like most, I have the bruises to prove it.

  9. 10:09 Rx’d with Jeff.
    Thanks for all the encouragement tonight everyone. This one destroyed me! It’s been a while since a WOD brougt me to tears afterwards. Great programing Christina! I need to learn from David and keep my form together making every rep count. I got sloppy and missed quite a few. Hats of to Zan for killing it! I think she lied to me when she told me it “wasn’t that bad”.

  10. 19:09 with Christina. Lost some time on the rope climbs, I lost my grip with my shoes and it made it a lot harder.

  11. 20:21 with Jeff

    Rope climbs kicked my butt. I have to get stronger. I have nothing more to say.

    Big thanks to Jeff, Daniel, Katie, Zan and Alex (and anyone I forgot) for the support!

  12. DNF 5 rope climbs + 38 reps.

    Started having some significant pain in my shoulder while doing the KB snatches, so I stopped. Not too happy about that, but really happy I got my first ever rope climbs in. Thank you Christina for the mini-lesson before class and for the encouragement before and throughout the WOD; it really helped. 😉

  13. DNF 68 reps (5 rope climbs + 2 rounds + 3 reps) with Christina
    I was pretty upset with myself after this workout. I didn’t do as well as I thought I should have. Still, I was glad to be able to do any 1 pood KB snatches. Thanks for your help and encouragement, Christina! 😀
