Okay I was 312 out of 1355 of the 30-39 year old male age group. I could have done better but the start sucked donkey balls. http://www.warriordash.com/...xas_Sat_AG.htm# 5

Time was 42:59

Sucks they have the photo stuff copy blocked and I am not paying over a $100 for these shots.

just the one where I busted my finger! Still waiting on it to heal. Too swollen to even get my ring on. Probably would help if I would quit training with it all fat and sore. But that ain't how I roll lol.


Damn man that still makes me feel bad. :(

Anything I can do for you?

Glad to know the staples are out and everything is going well.

I saw someone doing some kind of circuit that included KB swings and OHPs and pull ups and something else I don't know the name of and I thought of you and JLo and Crossfit.

Hey there - thanks for checking in on me the other day. My turn: You movin' yet or still sore? :)

I'm still in the game...got my 54 goblet squats done last night (30#KB). Trying hard not to miss a day, because having to catch up by doing more than one set of these in a day at reps over 50 would just suck! LOL!

Good to hear from you! I've had a busy month, too - but it was mostly good for vacation. The week after has been rough with trying to get re-organized and back into things.

Safe travels - and OUCH, in advance for when you return! :)

Well maybe that explains why I took on this goblet squat challenge; I've been called "evil" on more than one occasion. Apparently, the bad side of my Gemini self is trying to bust out...mwahahahaha! :)

Lol I found it and posted it on FB to our lifting/running group. Got to die from something I guess.

Thanks Led, Dday posted one for a zombie run in Austin in December.

Glad to read your surgery went well. I'm most impressed with 10 rounds of 400 meter runs. You must in great shape. I read somewhere Dan John said the toughest workout was front squats supersetted with 400 meter runs.

I am getting there Eco, a year ago I could not have run 400 meters without oxygen and someone to put an AED on me. Now I can run 3-4 miles easy at 8-9 min miles. Which is not great but at 230 pounds not bad I think.
