18:52. I felt sluggish, but I'm glad I got through it.

Darin scaled to 4 rounds and a mix of TTB and KTE. 19:26

20:01. Had to change weights mid WOD my math skills were a little sluggish this morning started with 125lbs then dropped to 85lbs.

I usually work out about 11:30 by myself or with one other guy. I have to say, it is much harder to let yourself slack with a little competition. Having someone right ahead or behind increases my intensity. I am now a believer in the benefits of group work-outs, however, 05:45 will take some getting used to.

Good WOD.

Mark Weaver said...

A disappointing 22:00... felt like I was constantly moving but couldn't get the pace up

Erin Anderson said...

21:54, scaled pp to 65. Thanks for the push Meg! You know i wanted to slow down!

Ross said...

RX'd Weight and Unbroken on PP and T2B for a 16:22, my goal was to beat 16:00 but just couldn't get my legs moving any faster... before hand did some more MU work, was getting them before and now they are escaped me again - dang... so frustrating...

Mac said...

16:25, as Rx'd. That was a good weight to keep things right at the tipping point between doable and not-doable. Gotta love that morning KS wind, too...but how does it manage to blow east and west at ths same time?
Nice and quiet in the bubble at 0815. While I know everyone trumpets the joys of group WODs on here, there's a lot of goodness in motivating yourself, too - at least if you enjoy the sound of your own labored breathing!

Noah said...

15:59, scaled PP to 85#. Solo workout=no fun.

I am still not a robot.

Amy said...

14:29 ish as Rx'd
I ran out the side door of the bubble, so my 400 may have been off a bit.

Meg Smith said...

22:02 Scaled my weight bc I found myself defaulting to a PJ. I was surprised that I had to break up a couple of sets of T2B--guess my shoulders were more tired than I anticipated...and 3 sets of GHD SU in the warm up was rather counterproductive. :-)

Expecting the jump ropes this week...will keep you all posted.

Julie said...

Meg- sent you a message through facebook. Just wanted you to check. Thanks!

Debbie said...

A VERY SLOW 23:11 for me. The positive was it was Rx'd and the PP went much better than the Games WOD, unbroken through round 4. So why was I so slow??? My runs were horrible, literally I almost walked twice and TTB only OK. I got myself a cup of coffee afterwards so overall a good morning :-)

Great WOD

Paige said...

16:37 BUT....I only did 55# PP because 1) I'm kind of a wuss, and #2) My right shoulder is still mad at me for attempting the 75# PP in the games so I was scarrrrrd.

I got TTB unbroken for the 1st time though and it was a beautiful afternoon for running!

21 mi 75 lbs

rob said...

Debbie's comments on slow running pertain to me as well. PP and T2B were unbroken and quick. But my running stinks. 16:50

Arod said...

19 1/2 min for 6 rounds (i am not sure why thought it was 6 rounds??), I scaled the push press down to 95-still have soreness in the shoulders...great week of programming! Good afternoon crowd.

Matt B. said...

20:16 as Rx. Ttb video helped, as I usually do the pike version. They were much easier doing kte with a kick. Still had too much swing to string them together though. Started each from a dead hang. Good WOD.

Dan said...

After a disappointing day yesterday, I had a much better one today: 16:05 Rx.

I used the side door of the bubble since it was right there and was open. That may have knocked a few meters off each 400.

Rob Graetz said...

23:49. 65# push press, getting better on the legs with this. Still only getting my knees to chest height or so for most T2B attempts. Any suggestions?

Dan said...

Rob G, I'd recommend being patient but determined w/ TTB. You'll build the requisite core strength over time (patience). The second piece is continually working to improve your form and range of motion (determination). Put TTB on your "to-do" list, chase that goal, and six months from now you'll be rocking 'em! (maybe sooner, who knows?)
