    I weigh myself twice a year, when I go to the doctors and when I do Christine. Straight up embarrassed that I lost my weight somewhere along the way. If anyone asks I still weigh 200#. Doubling up on the goat milk going forward I guess.

    Switched up my strategy, I went with a rowing technique that would have a coach running over telling me to stop because I was doing it wrong. I set the damper low and went for a high strokes/min with a shortened pull to save my legs for the other two movements.

    Got to work out with former 7PM regular Kevin Burke tonight, been too long! Watching my dude OBJ and playing the new Call of Duty all night.

    November 2012: 15:18 Rx / BW=165lbs
    September 2013: 13:55 Rx / BW=165lbs

    November 2014: 14:24 Rx / BW=175lbs
    I decided to invalidate my score from back in September because I did step ups, which made the whole thing MUCH easier and more tolerable. I’m OK with getting 29 seconds below my PR since my conditioning is not what it was and I had 10 more lbs to deal with! There WILL be a PR come next time.

    • jason barrow 11/04/2014 at 2:03 am

      That invalidation is rad. I remember there was an Open WOD a couple years ago involving box jumps and the general consensus became that it’s best to do step-ups, people who were very capable of Rx box jumps. Lando ended up ranting on Facebook about how we all accomplish things we couldn’t do before and why would we dumb down a movement. That rant stuck with me. Lando’s awesome.

      • JBo 11/04/2014 at 3:09 am

        Thanks buddy. Yeah, my time back in September was 12:25. Pretty much 2 minutes faster than tonight. Since it was only 5 or 6 weeks after my foot fracture I was forced to do step ups instead of box jumps. Interesting experiment though…definitely expended much less oxygen.
        Another reason for invalidating that last score is because I had assumed I still weighed 165. When I weighed myself this morning and saw 175, I was like WHOA. I guess we both should be weighing ourselves more often!

  12. Petra 11/03/2014 at 5:56 pm

    12:21 RX. Not a PR, but better than my last recoded score from April

  13. Joe 11/03/2014 at 2:04 pm

    11:48…no PR this go around

  14. Frawls 11/03/2014 at 1:24 pm

  15. Brian M. Maser 11/03/2014 at 1:05 pm

    11:23 Rx (215# DL) (:29 PR)
