    Whaaaat, look at these comments! Good work everyone.

    Nice big fun class at 7PM tonight.

    WOD: 23:11 Rx

    In the spirit of this post, this was the first ring dip WOD that I completed without having to scale down to a band at some point during the WOD. Still spent the majority of the time staring at the rings before jumping on, but it’s progress.

    Pumped about a 42″ box jump on 6/27.

    On vacation and still nursing a bum Achilles but I made it over to CFS stud Tony’s home gym and banged out 18 rounds doing the Cindy wod. I believe that earns me a couple extra coronas tonight.
