    Not quite what I expected still quite sore and weak from Monday. Even my Pullups for the warm up were tough… Lol
    Great class this morning Marie No. Good work 6 am er’s.

  4. Robyn told me last week about the Zenplanner app for iPhone so I downloaded it and have tried it and so far I think it’s awesome. Has anyone else tried it? Any issues?

    1. I just tried it now and the Info tab, which I assume would show me a list of the classes that I have scheduled but it shows me an error message.

      The Calendar tab seems to work really well though.

      1. Yeah the info tab doesn’t work for me either…probably only works if there is information in there to see?

    WU x 1… running a little late

    Bench Press – 10 sets of 5

    I didn’t have my old book but I remembered that I had finished at 140# so I planned out my weights with that number in mind… but things didn’t go as planned…


    What I hadn’t factored in and that I remember half way through today’s WOD was that last time we had done 5-3-3-2-2-1-1-1-1-1 reps.

    But I guess there’s a few PR’s in there for reps, so it’s all good. Next time i’ll have a better plan 😉

  12. Mobility, WU x 2
    Didn’t get to do the pec release w/ball on post

    Shared the bar with Jackie! Good times! 🙂

    Speed training balls and skipping rope came in the mail this week, so I can start doing some Double Under “homework”. 😀

    1. In answer to your plank question, Heidi says it’s just that I’m too b- itchy to give in. I’d say it’s because I try not to watch the clock and I count really slowly in my head so when the coach says what time is left I’m always pleasantly surprised! Probably Heidi’s right 😉
