There was a flash flood warning this morning, as we’ve gotten much needed rain — in a very short amount of time. I was concerned that the 9am endurance athletes and Michael Kelley wouldn’t have an opportunity to run the planned 5K. Fortunately, the skies cleared, and the race went on as planned. Nick, Jackie, Jay, Nick (I’ll call him “New Nick”), and Michael Kelley were in attendance. Someone doesn’t think he needs to warm up and/or do drills with the group.
I was very proud of the athletes, particularly Nick, Jackie, Jay, and New Nick. Nick won with a time of 20:13, and Michael Kelley was the first loser. (I’m also very proud of you, Michael Kelley. Don’t tell anyone.)
I had planned on doing the 10am WOD solo, but as Lindsey didn’t have a partner, I teamed with her.
20-minute AMRAP of the following (partner alternate rounds):
20 shoulder to overhead (135; I used 95)
At Lindsey’s request, I started and thus ran the first 400m. For the remainder of the WOD, I completed an additional 400m as well as 2 rounds of push press (reps of 10, 5, & 5 first round and reps of 13, 5 & 2 second round) and 2 rounds of pull-ups (17 & 3 [damn you platform rack!] & 20 unbroken). The look on Lindsey’s face after I completed the 20 unbroken pull-ups and informed her that she could start her run was priceless! Lindsey, you know how much I love you, and you did an awesome job today! There was, however, too much recovery time for my liking.
Not to worry, as I just got back from biking a challenging 16 miles on the muddy ATT!
I coached the 11am Community WOD, and there were 15 in attendance, including Jeff, Tegan & Ken, Kate, and a gaggle of Cubans, i.e., Cris and Dave. Attendees also completed a partner WOD, once again alternating rounds. 20-minute AMRAP of 5 pull-ups, 15 airs squats, and 30 double unders. Jeff went solo, and performed the entire WOD unbroken. Well done!
Whilst changing my shirt, I couldn’t help but notice the stares, particularly from always-shirtless-Max and his lovely wife, Audrey. Sayeth Max: “I know now why you don’t take off your shirt.” I replied, “I don’t want to show up all of you losers.” “No,” said Max, “It’s because you have a pierced belly button.” I said, “Uhm, no. I like my belly button ring. I got it the day I could actually see my belly button.” “You used to be a fatty?” Max asked.
Sheesh, Max. You’re not a very good listener. Everyone knows I used to be a fatty, and I’ve told you the story more than once. Good luck, Audrey!
