    10:21 (PR). Took 1:20 off of previous PR. Another forearm smoker. First two rounds were unbroken, last round…not so much.

    Rx’d 10:21 (+28)
    As much as I hate it, I may have to do some extra endurance training. I’m a helluva lot stronger, but run slower than when I started CF’ing.

    8:24 PR by 49s
    Had to break up the last round of pullups. Lost a lot of time on the last 400m.

    8:04 PR by 2:12

    Really wanted sub 8 on this, just have to push the runs harder, all rounds unbroken.

    10:23 PR by 1:20. Felt slow on 2nd and 3rd run. I know I can shave some seconds off next time. Overall very happy. Good job to the BENCHMARK class… Everyone was in the zone.

    Patrick,
    More endurance workouts? No. More CF workouts and less 5×5 back squats? Yes!

      Yeah… You’ve only been telling me this for like… forever. I’m still working on getting this notion through my noggin. In the end, I’d rather have a CFT over 1000 than a sub 9 Helen.

    sub rowing for running, I’m the slowest rower ever.. Karen gave me some tips tonight to help with that…I spent close to 7 minutes at that rowing machine!
    Had to do ring rows instead of PU’s bc I could only get one PU..UGH!
    So needless to say I didn’t do so hot on this benchmark.
