Boy, is it tempting to come in and do Helen today instead of the long run I'm supposed to do...

10.30 PR'd by 1 full minute. I'll take it. Did it at globo hell. Can't wait to be back at sbk tomorrow. I think I actually over heard some dudes talking about adding wheat gluten to their post workout shakes here today. Needless to say these guys were quarter squating 4 plates on the smith machine. I was tempted to say "no rep" as I passed by. Lol

12:24. Thanks, Margie! I had a great amount of fun today. You're always fun though! And I think I may've achieved some kips today. I really need to get those down as the strict pull-ups aren't always the appropriate move to do.

Thanks goodness the ball was only dropped once. Any more than five burpess would've made today's Helen that much more challenging.

Wouldve liked to break 10 but that won't happen until my running form get better. The 1st run was ie but when I'm tired round 2 and 3 is really inefficient foot pounding pavement that wears me down.

I Hurt myself by swinging a lot of kb swings with arms instead if hips. I hit lazy and didn't really snap my hips and that eventually led to a breakdown in pullups due to forearm fatigue.

All swings were unbroken

Pullups rd 1 unbrokenRd 2 8/4Rd 3 6/3/3

In the past pullups were a limiting factor but they felt good today

fun morning workout at 9am with margie... i think my time was 13:16 with green band assisted pullups and 1pd russian swings. this was my first helen and i thought i got the right metabolic intention of it down.

i haven't done too many benchmarks yet, but i really loved the annie ladder we did last month. i like that i didn't have to scale because you start at the bottom with 10 reps, and i can actually do double unders and situps!
