      Determined is what I see.

    • Robert S. says:

      I would say determination was an emotion I was feeling at that time. Thanks for the motivational words everyone.

      I have to second what everyone else has said about this pic. Excellent eye! Composition is wonderful and it really does portray what CF is all about in so many different ways.

    30:38. Battled sore calves that started unexpectedly in round 1. Paced myself. Could have broke 30:00 but I wasn’t paying attention to the clock.

  13. tracey says:

    completed 5 rounds 43:34( i think, i wrote it on the board) as Rx’d…we cut off at 35min., so at that point I was 4 rounds + 300ish meters.
    I was going to do all 5 requardless, to see how long it would actually take.
    The 24″ box is now my friend:)but I will always respect it.
    Wall balls still suck a$$!

  14. LeshaS says:

    30 min cut-off: 3 rounds and 400 m of the 4th round. 18 inch box is mastered! I am ready for 20 next (?)!

  15. Robb Dempsey says:

    Congrats Tracey on nailing the 24″ jumps!If we weren’t in the midst of the challenge, I’d say you more than deserve that glass of wine tonight!


  17. Daniel says:

    I loved today’s workout. It felt a bit like running a 5k.

  18. klowe says:

    5K run – 22:08 (only 2 sec from PR) – which was a total surprise considering the wind, mud, and pace.

    • Karen says:

      Great time! Long legs have to be a benefit in 2 out of 3 of these exercises!! 🙂

    • Kerri says:

      And a lifetime of basketball….=o) Those WBS are just like shooting a basketball over and over and over again, right Katy? I think that’s one reason they seem so easy to me…
      Yep, great time KD!!

  22. Robert S. says:


    I was debating if I should do this one or not. I figured I would give it a go because I wanted the wallball practice. Two days of active rest for me too, then it’s the games. I’m freaking amped!
