  1. *sniff* *sniff*

    Is that Fran I smell?

    1. it’s 11.6 you smell

  2. She does indeed have a very distinctive bouquet! Reminiscent of suffering, sweat, and pulmonary edema! Wait until you do 11.6 – like Fran that never ends!

  3. Thrusters: up to 133#
    WOD: 7:45 (reg PUs)

  4. thruster: 55#
    WOD: 11:46 (bb pu’s…with maybe some jumping in there too…)

    The whole toilet thing makes the gym…humid. My advice to you — du outside and use the bar in the doorway. I didn’t but I wished I did when I was about to pass out in the middle of the WOD.

  5. Thrusters: 89, 112, 112, 89, 105 (odd, I know)
    WoD: 10:49 w/ blue band. . . very much punished for not having done du’s in a while

  6. Thrusters: up to 133#
    WOD: 10:47 (jump PUs)

  7. Thrusters: 89, 99, 111, 111, 121

    No WOD just worked on C2B technique/efficiency

  8. 155 – 177 x 3 – 199 F
    7:30

  9. Thrusters: 62, 67×3, 72 – PR and I didn’t even know it! Thank you, newly acquired hip drive!
    WOD: 10:00, blue band C2Bs

  10. Thursters: 77, 87, 97 x 4. Prob need to go heavier, but my shoulder is bothering me
    WOD: 6:38

  11. Thrusters: 67 x 5 (pretty ugly, maybe should have gone slightly lighter)
    WOD: 9:03 (blue band PUs)

    Double under performance anxiety yet again. I seem to get better the more tired I am. The first 2 sets, I couldn’t string more than 2 together, but my last set I did 27 unbroken. Guess I just needed to find my rhythm…

    1. Or stop thinking about it 🙂

  12. Thrusters: 89, 89, fail at 94, 94, fail at 99
    But thanks to Cat I think that is a PR! Thank you Cat!

    WOD: 7:05 (red band C2B)

  13. Thrusters: 67, 77, 89# x 3
    WOD: 8:13 (RRs on the box, accounting for a 17 sec delayed start)

    CrossFail when my ring slipped off the band and I was dangling by my left arm… Thanks Ian for finding me a substitute station!

  14. thrusters: 67 x 5
    WOD: 8:50 (blue band pull ups)

  15. Thrusters: 89/89/99/99/111 (feels good to finally be back under a weighted bar, still keeping it light)
    WOD: 8:20 (RR’s w/ box, DU’s first 2 rounds, then broke my jump rope AGAIN… finished out with SU’s)

  16. Thruster: 89, 111, 121, 133(PR), 155(PR)

    WOD: 5:04 Rx, including time wasted w/ a double noted rope

  17. Thrusters: 89, 111, 133×3
    WOD: 8:24

    Wod: 4:51 (sub ring dips for pull-ups)

  19. Thruster 133

    WOD 6:07

  20. 111# thrusters
    9:32 RX

  21. Thrusters: 66,77,82,82,87
    WOD: 7:11, maybe 80% c2b

  22. Thrusters: 133
    WOD: 5:30

  23. Thrusters: 89, 99, 111, 111, 111(2)

    WOD: 10:04 Rx (breaking into small sets to get legit chest touching bar, not just height)

  24. Thrusters: 135×4; 155 x1

    WoD: 6:36 Rx

  25. Thrusters: 35,40×2,45×2

    WOD: 9:27 (BB PU’s, mostly SU’s with some DU’s mixed in)

  28. Thrusters: up to a set of 185, with a 199F in there somewhere.
    WOD: 8:57 chin to bar PU’s

  29. Thrusters up to 133#
    WOD – 5:58 Rx except later rounds of pus were not really up to C2B. Related q: is chest supposed to actually touch the bar or just get up there? If the former, I did zero C2B.

    1. ya there’s supposed to be contact with the bar.

      1. Thanks, Jason.

  30. Sub front squat for thrusters
    Wod: 10:00 ( not all c2b, rusty at du!)

  31. thrusters @77×4, 87
    wod- 10:40; off day for DUs for me too; maybe it’s something in the air/water

  32. Thrusters: 35, 40, 40, 45, 45
    No WOD…still in lazeballz recovery mode. 🙁

  33. thrusters- couldn’t get 87# Did 77# twice
