    Thanks Gill for inspiring me to go RX by (unknowingly) going rx… I was only going to go for about 30% (45#) until I saw your bar 😀

    I was kind of nervous about this one, I even calculated that I only had 3 mins per round and was wondering if I would finish it or not!

    TIME 12:20

    First, need to say that when my picture has been on the site it never says “Hot Tamale” over it – not sure why…

    Second – as usual 7 a.m. is painful to get to and amazing to be at. Great work this morning eveyone and thanks to coach Ron whose eagle eyes miss nothing – do they teach that at the cert?

    1. Thanks for the kind words, in regards to the Cert, that was easy compared to passing Kevin’s trainer evaluation. He has very high standards and everyone benefits from it, especially the members…. Oh yea, and he’s a great guy too.

    2. Way to go, Heather! Congrats on Rx! And I love the focus you have always had on proper form. Great work on your push jerks!

  7. Strength: OHS
    5x 65-70-75-85

    WOD w/ 55#
    T = 10:00 flat

    That was rough. Rounds 1-3 were great, then I nearly barfed for the 4th & 5th so they were very slow. Didn’t drink enough water this morning, hydration has a HUGE impact on my wods.
    I want to do this again.

    Only broke up last round of lunges and tripped up once on the 4th round of doubles.

    1. You were some freaking fast! I was trying my hardest to keep up to you, but after about the second lunge (yes, the actual lunge, not SET of lunges) you were too far gone….nice work!
