    1. Congrats on doing all of your pullups unassisted! That’s HUGE! Thanks again for keeping me going on that last run.

    2. Way to go Chris. Being new to CrossFit, tackling 50 unassisted pull ups is no joke…and you finished in the time cap. Nice work.

    broken in 10 rounds of 5,10,15 First time trying to kip (with purple band). Liked it a lot. :). Push ups were less than fun and thanks for callin me out Kev.
    23:22 the first 400m of the last run were more like an ugly power walk. Awesome job everyone. Way to finish hard lance and way to go hard all the way Jeff.

    1. nice job on the wod kev.. and thanks for sharing the bar tonight, and you are welcome for the tips, hope they helped!

    150 squats: sets of 30 (got this one)
    800m (half was a walk)
    Time: 24:22

    This was a killer. Doing the first 3 sets of pullups with no band was rough on the arms then the sets of 20 pushups finished me off.

    Thanks to Brigitte for being at her 400m point just as was at the last 400 of my run and thanks to Laura for yelling 15 seconds at the end to get me to push. Love the 6:45 crew.

    1. I was very happy Brigett and yourself hustled back from your run. You both are lots of fun to work out with. Laura

    Broke it up into 10 rounds of Cindy (5,10,15). Pull ups and squats were very manageable this way. Push ups were brutal, even with 10 per round. Did them in 2’s and 3’s. Second 800m run felt like a freakin’ marathon. Never been so out of gas in my life….Thanks Chris for keeping me going.
