    Tried to keep track of my splits. First 400 was 1:09, then watch got twisted and missed the lap button.
    Solid work from 0600 this morning!

      Oops – I realize there’s an error up there. That should say, “There is only ONE date left on the schedule.” 🙂 I’m so pumped about Helen AND the fact that today is my last day of work before I’m off for 13 days that I’m just all over the place!

    7:57 RX’d, pr by 7s.

    I snatched all the swings, and by the last round of pullups had nothing left. Started the pullups at 7:25 and they took 32s, that shouldn’t have been the case. Next time.

        Josh, I can’t access FB while at work, but I saw your message.

        The snatch is faster, but it’ll fatigue your arms and take more of a toll on your pullups. Pretty much just something you need to feel out and try both ways to see what works best for you.

        My main reason for snatching is to just get accustomed to doing it that way because it’s easier to keep the bell straight at the top, and that will always be a sticking point with judging.

    Yay for Yoga! If you haven’t had a chance to go yet, you should. It is great and everyone needs to try it out!

    14:32 Rx’d

    Oh, Helen…. I was so excited to see you and you b%th slapped me. I was easily looking at a sub 15 and with 4 pullups left, rip rip riiippppp… Blood all over the bar. Thank you to Kerri and Tracey. With you guys pushing me, I was able to do those last 4 pullups. It took forever and I almost started crying, but I finished. 🙁 Rx’d, 17:43. WAY off my PR. Until next time, Helen.
