    4/2/14: 19:01 RX (my first ever Rx workout! And the first time I ever contemplated giving up/passing out)
    9/18/14: 14:52 RX
    *same weight, but shaved off almost 5 minutes!!!!

    Christine progress (body weight is annoyingly constant at 165lbs)

    November 2012: 15:18 Rx
    September 2013: 13:55 Rx
    September 2014: 12:25 Rx-ish (don’t have clearance yet to do box jumps so had to do step ups instead)
    Looking forward to doing this one again in November when the foot is healed.

    I was inspired by Mel to go back and look at old scores – went like this:
    9/2012 – 12:02 RX
    11/2013 – 10:44 RX
    4/2014- 10:27 RX
    Today – 9:56 RX
    I love this WOD. one of the few times there are three movements I’m halfway good at together. I guarantee Rob Hassell would have beat me by 2 seconds if he went in the second heat.

      Nothing like a clearly defined goal to provide some focus – 9:45 vs 10:22 in April. Thanks for the benchmark Quigs

    Christine Progress:
    9/13/13 – 73% BW – 12:53
    11/1/13 – 75% BW – 13:20 (or 15:20? damn writing.)
    4/2/14 – 89% BW – 14:00
    9/18/14 – 13:26 RX!!

    The deadlifts are my hang up right now. Need to work on them. Or just lose the lbs. Either one 🙂

    10:36 up from 10:32
    I chalk it up to getting on the wrong rower!

    Nice work all this morning. Sick PR quigs

      Your judge also didn’t get your rower reset so that added some time. That guy sucks.

    Christine (1st time): 11:38. Followed by a partner WOD with Goose of removing a baby mouse from the gym (PR for both) and bro-ing out with Maser doing GHDs and rope climbs.

    • Brian M. Maser

      Totally forgot about the mouse near the PVC pipes. He was just trying to hit some pass-throughs.

    • Mike Quigley

      09/18/2014 @ 6:08 pm

      I thought you were going to go full paleo and eat that mouse when I saw you put it on a paper plate.

        Had the Challenge started already, maybe. You get extra points for killing and eating your own food, right?

  • Brian M. Maser

    First time for me doing Christine. 11:52 Rx. I was annoyed watching how Quigley worked through it effortlessly in under 10 minutes.

        Don’t worry Brian, you’ll be less annoyed when you see me do pullups….or HSPU…or ring dips…or…you get the point.
