    That quote from Bill McCartney on coaching is so right. Our coaches have helped me to develop mental toughness to grind through a WOD that I never realized I needed. Props to CF HSV coaching staff!!

    w/u: 2 mile easy
    Main: 2 x 1 mile repeats, rest 3:00,
    don’t slow to more than 3-5 seconds across efforts
    Effort 1: 5:48 (HR Avg 161, Max 172)
    Effort 2: 5:43 (HR Avg 167, Max 178)
    w/d: 2 mile easy

    Klepto had me sore-o but was feeling good, tempted to do 1 more repeat but starting to taper this week.
    Congratulations to “Jimmy” James “The Milkman” Stranahan for demolishing his previous 1 mile PR time!! Pretty sure he crushed it by at least 15 seconds!

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for the salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

      Don’t even know how to describe how much I loved watching this!!! First of all, the DU’s are sick! Sick!!! Secondly, I loved hearing you guys’ convo and commentary throughout it. When Jake hit 225 and pointed at you guys, I started to get butterflies in my tummy – I could feel his excitement! Listening to Dennis scream and motivate was just icing on the cake. Thanks for posting this – makes me feel like I was there. So awesome!

        I became stressed out from just watching it again!!!!! My voice was clearly gone within the first 3 hours of the day 1. So exciting to watch him do so well and to reap the rewards of his hard work.

      Wow, those DUs did look annoying. Great job Jake!
