Larry C hit 50 today, and to celebrate, decided to hit FRAN — and knocked it out at 6:48. Claudine Z turned 35 today, and celebrated with a “Filthy Thirty-Five” (doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like “Fifty”, but it’s her birthday, so she can name it whatever she likes. Both put in impressive efforts and continue to inspire everyone around them. Happy Birthday Larry and Claudine!
Tanner, despite stifling heat, did the whole thing in a 20# vest (he came in later that night to work on his Oly lifts – he trains like a champion!). Also taking on the WOD was Larry, Sue P, Dave G, Nick, Amy and John F. Great effort — tough WOD on a tough day.
The Monday (02/22/10) WOD was: five 3 minute rounds of 3 Burpees, 6 Thrusters, and 9 Box Jumps (AMRAP), with a 1 minute rest in between rounds. The morning crew hit it hard, and it hit back. John E, Rob J, Rob V, Scott L, and Steve R. The New Haven crew came in next, with Larry C joining in. Again, hard effort and bodies on the floor. Both groups put in some terrific effort – nicely done!
The morning crew was hard at it again (Larry C, Rob J, Marianne U, Rob V, and Jay B). The WOD was 20, 15, and 10 Back Squats, going up in weight and as heavy as possible on each progression. Jay was particularly impressive, as he likely does not weigh more than 170, yet (although he began his 20 at 95#), stepped up his game big time and went to 185# for his 15 and the 225# for his 10! Her-ka-lees! Her-ka-lees! (with hand clapping in between).
