    Wow, pullups are really weak. I realized on the way home that this is the first time I’ve done a pullup workout since I hurt my shoulder early January.

    On the voting page for the contest, there is a link on the right for CFIB. Whether you are a business owner or not there is a lot of information there that pertains to small business’ in Canada. Most Canadians are unaware of the trials and tribulations of operating a small business and what government does to lead to their premature demise. I think everyone should understand some of these issues so when you see prices go up within a business you know it is not for more profit, but likely to factor in increases to the payroll taxes or compliance costs etc…

    CFIB is non profit, non partisan lobby support group for small business owners in Canada. No funding from big business, labor or government.

    I am a bit partisan as I am a District Manager working with 450 small business owners in the area. I was extremely naive to the issues at hand before I started with the organization.

    Hey, was wondering if anyone else is unable to attend WOD 11.5 this saturday and would like to join up to do it beforehand on thursday, as I am not sure if the fitness room at our resort in Mexico will provide me with equipment to perform said WOD. πŸ˜›

    But joking aside… Kevin, is sunday the last day to perform a sectional WOD after its announcement? If so, I might be on a tight schedule to do WOD 11.6, as we fly back on saturday. A sunday open gym would be greatly appreciated. Would hate to miss out on the last workout of the sectionals.

    1. Patrick

      Yes Sunday is the last day to do the sectional WODs. If you get back Saturday, Sunday would be your only option. And yes I’ll be looking at doing this weed’s WOD on Thursday night if possible.

    2. Kevin

      We will see what the workout is and make decisions from that. You can do it on Thursday, but I can’t say when until I know the workout.

    It’s true what Dan said, running hard in round 1 wasn’t such a good idea, but I figured I was gonna be out of juice anyways by the end, so I ran with it, literally. Wanted to destroy this PR. Mission accomplished.

    Good job everyone! Hurray for running season.

      1. Mario

        Im already high… or maybe just tired.

        Also, as far as I’m concerned this Helen WOD can suck it. Just for the record.
