  14. Michelene

    Pinwheel: 22:53 (10#) This is the closest I have ever come to throwing up during a WOD. Although I think that might have had something to do with the pizza and sundae I had for dinner last night… It was a good one for sure – the WOD and the dinner!

    • Kristin R

      Ha – would never have known. Great job this morning!

    • Harry Palley

      Loved the effort this morning Michelene. Got after it. Maybe pizzas and sundaes are the secret…

    Thank you Ben for the rowing help. So lucky to have a personal rowing training session with Ben…even if 10,000 people have seen it. :)

    • 10,000? no way … wait, it’s 30,755 @ 6:25pm today!

      • Lol. I haven’t noticed since the first day but I should’ve realized when people have been contacting me from random parts of my life mentioning it. So funny.

    Pinwheel 17:10 Thanks for the motivation Max!

  34. Nick C.

    Pinwheel – 19:03 Rx

    Love when the talk guy WODs make an appearance!

  35. 25:06 (14#, rest RX)

    Discussing the workout’s strategy Max wanted us to go “unbroken everything” in rounds of 15s and 10s. Alas, didn’t happen for me, though I got unbroken rows in all rounds :-)

    Had to switch to sets of 5s in rounds of 15s and 10s in box-jumps, but glad to have 10 unbroken wall-balls in the last round!

    Props for great job to at least half a dozen of 7:30pmers (Matt, Nick, Craig and others) – I noticed that you were done when I was only about to start round of 15s!

    • Erkin way to get those last 10 wall balls unbroken! Victory!

    • Nick C.

      Nice job tonight, Erkin! You moved your way through it at a great pace.
