    Partnered with Amanda and Adam. Great team 🙂
    Completed 8.75km at time cap.

    I don’t know why they wouldn’t let me do their Burpees and they complete my rows???

    Now that was a whole lot of fun 😉

    Thanks Shane. Happy Friday everyone.

    To go along with Mario’s Facebook post, super happy coach this morning, none of the 6 amer’s were cherry pickers!!! It’s been a tough week and actually had more people sign up after the Wod was announced!!
    Great work this morning everyone!!
    Hydrate accordingly this weekend 🙂

  3. Blind date stories? I love it!!!

    Yes, I once went on a blind date. My friend assured me he was a “really great guy”. And like a sucker, I believed her. It never occurred to me to ask “If he’s so great, why don’t you go out with him?”

    Anyway, on the night of our date, he picked me up in this filthy dirty, beat up old car. I was HORRIFIED as I opened the door and got in. He was nothing like my friend had said. For starters, he was MUCH, MUCH older than me, and that alone was a deal breaker. He was pushing 350# and had a long scraggly beard. And he was wearing workbooks, dirty jeans and an Albert County dinner jacket to boot 🙁
    Now, by today’s standards, his clothing alone deemed him a quarter “lumbersexual” but back in those days, he looked like something from the back woods 😛

    Very long story short, the date was a complete disaster. He was creepy as hell and after he started talking about the two of us getting married, he started naming our prospective children. I kid you not. It was the scariest date I’ve ever been and I ended up feigning sickness and asked him to bring me home. Incase you’re interested, if we had a girl her name would have been “Cougar” 😀

    It was the shortest and WORST date I’ve ever been on. In the end, it turned out that my friend really wanted to go out with one of his good looking friends and I got thrown under the bus to try and facilitate that.

    1. Oh Tara I feel your pain! I’ve been on way too MANY blind dates lol..and too many stories. I’ve heard this after I suggested we go play pool after our drinks “Well I only brought $20 bucks for tonight..I don’t believe in blowing money away on what might be just 1 date”. And I guess people just not being honest with their appearance and one guy right as we introduced ourselves moved in for a hug and a kiss! Woah la! lol, but I’ve also had some good ones too, you just never know what you’re getting into 🙂

  4. Warmup x 1 (15 reps), 15 Wallballs at 10#, and several no reps. 🙁

    Yikes. I felt sick no less than three times on this WOD. Nonetheless, our results were very consistent. Nice working out with you Dom and Bob.

    Another great class Shane. I think you are a keeper!!

    QOD: Haven’t been on many blind dates. Pretty much knew what they were going to look like before the date. There was one in high school (Gr9 I think). I remember her name was Tracy. We met at the mall by Toy R Us and planned on going to a movie. I was sitting on a bench waiting and I saw this girl come through the doors. And I knew it was her. And I was frightened. She came in for a hug right away and reeked of cigarettes (she just had one outside). And her body odour was…let’s say…ripe. I walked over to the theatre (reluctantly) and sat near the back. I was praying she wouldn’t try any funny business. Luckily, she only tried to hold my hand. I kept reaching for popcorn when she did. At the end, she went in for the goodnight kiss and I turned my head quickly and it turned into a friend hug. And we never met again.

    Hope to hear some of your stories! There has to be a few good ones.

    I was on a blind date once. But she found out right away that I wasn’t blind at all. That was the deal breaker.

    …padoum TSSSS!!!

  7. Heather P

    Never been on a blind date…actually never been on an official “first date!” The whole concept intrigues the hell out of me.

    Possibly got 6 triple unders…going to need to video these to be sure I’m getting all 3 passes.

    So, so close but I was running on fumes when I strapped in with 500m to go…an extra 20 seconds and I could have had it but I was completely spent.

    QOD – nope!
