Busters and Thurpees

We were kinda right about 14.5.  Total suckfest.  With a twist...


As Castro said, "The clock can't save you"

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps for time of:
Thrusters (95/65)

At least we got to suck with friends.  Sean and I and a few guys from CF Plexus went down to a neighboring affiliate and participated in their "Friday Night Lights" --  3 heats of 25+ athletes completing 14.5.  It was a blast!  They had some great athletes, and it was lots of fun to watch and cheer for everybody.  It was also helpful to see people endure the pain before we went.  Kind of.

Someone uploaded some video of our heat.  That's me!  (In the bright neon green, ObVee)

I finished in 19:04.  Goal was under 20 minutes.  Mission, accomplished.  BOOMSAUCE.

I didn't repeat any WODs and finished 22,435th place out of........44,984.  

Drumroll Please...... (do you even math, bro?)

That's 49.87%  JUST MADE IT in the top 50%!!! #thatwasclose  Next year I'll hopefully do better!!!

I've started following The Outlaw Way programming.  They have a muscle up progression that's apparently pretty much guaranteed, and they are always posting their followers PR-ing.  I want in on all of that!

I'm following a week behind schedule, so I can adjust the days if necessary.  Taking Thursdays and Sundays off.  And by off I mean LOTS of mobility.  I'm not going anywhere with my olympic lifts, I'm pretty sure, because I can't freaking land in a squat.  Because my hips suck.  So I'll be trying to fix my hips as well.

We booked our hotel for Regionals!  Sean got word that he'll be judging.  I bought my tickets.  Ready to go!
