HEAVY SINGLE FS: 200!!!!!!!! 10 lb PR!  Been waiting for this number for a LONG time!  🙂

Pause FS with 175….sitting in the hole was a challenge.  I actually go really deep and pausing makes me stuck there.  It was difficult to get out of, but really see the value in this for me.  🙂

6:22 on wod….DL was great, DU were not so great.  My form on the DU were good, but I couldn’t string more than 20-30 in a row.  I was a bit more winded than I wanted to be.  must keep practicing.

I did this wod with David Williams today.  He started with the run, while I started with thrusters.  Every round I ended up with thrusters and a couple rope climbs.  This was BRUTAL since we did about 6 rounds, so I did 8×6 thrusters = 48 – 1 that david did.  UGH!  hard day!!!
