    I have a couple sleep disorders. Sleep paralysis is one. I’ve laid there unable to move for up to 10 to 15 minutes before. Usually the only thing I can do is move my eyes, grunt, and sometimes I can shake a foot or clinch my fist. Most of the time my Fiance is with me, so I can start breathing loud or grunting and she will shake me out of it, but when I’m alone it’s terrible. Shaking a foot really hard for a little bit normally gets me out of it. Sometimes nothing works and I just lay there motionless. It’s hard to breath and it really sucks.

    I also sleep walk… and sleep eat. I’ll wake up in front of the fridge sometimes. A couple weeks ago I woke up with a dairy taste in my mouth. I walked into the kitchen and a whole tub of cottage cheese that I had bought the night before had been eaten. I didn’t remember any of it. I’ve done the same thing with peanut butter before.

    Yeah… I’m a freakin wierdo. As long as I stick to eating in my sleep and not walking out into traffic naked, I’ll be good.

    Theres been a few times when I swore I had beer in my fridge and the next day….all gone???

    but seriously Will. That sucks! Reminds me of “Jonny Get Your Gun”….or otherwise known as the guy from the Metallica “One” video. I hope you get that figured out.

  3. klowe says:

    I could only imagine “driving” that car home after a WOD in our current gym…..in Alabama……in August.

    but my 5K row time would kick some serious ass!

    I need to go to bed

    • Patrick says:

      After watching the “toy car” video… I can imagine getting behind this goob when your tired, stressed and trying to get home at the end of a busy day.

      And, how about merging into heavy traffic while rowing that silly contraption.

      One more piece of chaff in the technological grain bin.

  4. Aaron says:

    6:30.0 pr by almost 2 minutes

    Annie was a blast today, especially after getting my teeth kicked in from the last two hero wods. Great push from Larry this morning, finally caught him on the last 2 situps.

  5. Ryan says:

    Nice work bro. Sounds like you found your double unders?

    • Aaron says:

      Thanks. DU’s felt really good. I actually think the last couple wods fatigued my shoulders enough to where they were obsolete from my DU’s and I had to use proper technique with my wrists. I wonder if that was intentional…

  6. klowe says:

    FYI in case interested. EBAY has the black INOV-8’s (the flat ones) for 50.00 buy it now.

    They don’t have my size available but hopefully yall might be interested. Pretty good deal. And INOV-8 tend to run small so if you normally wear a 10.5 then youll need to order an 11

  7. Larry Lowe says:

    6:30.5 (pr by 12 seconds). Aaron yelled time right before I did. Nice work! (Would have had you if I wouldn’t have collided ropes with Jada in the 30s :).

    Situps still slow me down. Not much to do there to improve other than just doing them faster.

  8. Craig Herr says:

    6:51 (pr by 44 seconds) slow set of 40’s I can get faster on the sit ups.

    great job to all the pr’s this am. I saw Ms. Miller killed it and had a pr as well. I think that moves her to the top of the white board for Annie or close!

  9. Jake Naumcheff says:

    PR by 18 seconds

    Double-unders were there today. Sit-ups weren’t as fast as they have been in the past but I’ll take it.

  10. Will Blankenship says:

    10:58… 2:30 OVER PR… suck!

    I had 30 unbroken du’s in warmup. When the wod started and the music got cranked up, I completely lost my rhythm. So frustrating.

  11. Aaron says:

    Is this what they do next door? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m kidding but this video is too funny not to share. Caution: This may be offensive to some.


  12. Penelope says:

    9:47 (4X singles); I will gladly pay a large sum of $$ to anyone who can help find my Double Unders.

  13. Ryan says:

    8:38 First time with Annie. Double unders flowed “like butter drippin off a hot biscuit” (name that quote anyone? not you Aaron!) Sit ups were tough. With abmat or without abmat, equal suck.

    • Aaron says:

      With all the PR’s, maybe a new nickname for the gym is in order, afterall “such a multitude of masculinity […and femininity] could only be found in one place and that was O’Malley’s Alley.”

    • klowe says:

      “she new what she wanted, she was looking for that stud bull Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee — cat….and that was me”

    • Aaron says:

      Rad. I knew there were others.

  14. Mandee Miller says:

    6:53 (PR)

  15. Tye says:

    7:36; PR by 89 seconds over when I did Annie on the 4 July.

  16. klowe says:

    -56 seconds slower than PR but the way my DU’s have been going…I”ll take it!
    -the round of 40 was a disaster that probably accounted for most of the lost 56 seconds

  17. Garrett D says:

    14:02 Annie was an epic failure for me today. I knew I didn’t have DU’s today but stubbornly decided to try to find them in the workout. After doing both the 50 and 40 round at nothing more than 2 or maybe 3 linked, I admitted defeat and went to singles. What a suckfest. Singles would have gotten me there so much faster since they were virtually unbroken.

  18. Karen says:

    Did this one at home. 7:50. Found some of my double unders but then the braid in my hair fell out so my ponytail kept hitting the rope and screwing up the rhythm! But I was able to make it through the 20 count round unbroken – minimal ponytail interference ๐Ÿ™‚ Just happy to hit the rhythm again! So, like KLowe, I’ll take it! It is at least 3 minutes faster than last time. But last time, I wanted to chuck the jump rope out my back door.

  19. Kerri says:

    Annie ‘on a Boat’: 13:11
    500m/400m/300m/200m/100m row subbed for DU’s, to avoid splitting the leg open.

    This, was tougher than I’d imagined…my abs didn’t know what to do when I was rowing…..

  20. Emily D. says:

    7:01 as rx’d

    7 sec slower than my PR…DUs were crap the first round…couldn’t hit more than 9 or 10 at a time. Caught up the last 3 rounds….hit a better stride.

  21. tracey says:

    I forgot my time…i think sub 9 min. I did single unders, while Kevin did his du’s. Then I sorta found the du’s at 4:30. I have no idea why this is a horrible exercise for me, but it is. I want to pee the intire time reguardless if I just went pee or not.
    It is something that has to be practiced often…therefore thats why I still struggle with them.
    Good work Kevin and Jake!!!! congrats Mandee!

  22. Robert S. says:

    No rope, and I figured trying to do du’s with a fire hose would be a bad idea so I made up box squats from Sunday.

    10×2 box squats:

    11# plates made for odd numbers.

  23. Ryan says:

    You have made me sooooo proud Kevin.

  24. Aaron says:

    CF Endurance at HHS Track
    1:1 Intervals
    45 sec on, 45 sec off, 1:30 on, 1:30 off, 3 min on, 3 min off, 6 min on, 6 min off, 3min on, 3 min off, 1:30 on, 1:30 off, 45 sec on

    Roughly 16 mins of work and probably just shy of 3 miles. My legs are trashed. I appreciate Jake coming out and doing this one with me. This wod was a good one, especially if youโ€™re not familiar with pacing yourself or dodging pee wee football kids and their parents. I hope more people come out for these runs.

    Next CFE wod is Thursday, 8/19/10: 5K TT, RPE 85% not going all out on this one.

  25. Russ says:

    13:45- Subbed DUs with Jump Tucks. Still working to get DUs.

  26. LeshaS says:

    9:10 as rx – PR by almost 2 minutes (last Annie was 11:02). Double-unders are much better (is it the Buddy Lee Rope?) but sit-ups will always be slow…

  27. AmandaJ says:

    First time with Annie…subbed tuck jumps for DUs. 9:55.

  28. Kyle Mosier says:

    11:02 as rx’d – DU were okay in first and second rounds, crappy in the third, and better in the fourth and fifth. Sit ups should have been faster. I get that sore on my tailbone that drives me crazy. Any suggestions?
