Today, with Andrea as our coach, we hit Daniel - a hero's workout:
50 chins
400 meter run
21 Thrusters
800 meter run
20 Thrusters
400 meter run
50 chins

40:42 - as prescribed - 65lb Thrusters!!

I must say - Andrea is a wonderful coach, and she worked with the mixed skill levels in the 9am class very well. She also didn't give me a choice about going Rx - I was prepared to do 55lbs (as I had done 55lb clean and push press x15 5 rounds yesterday) - but I'm glad she pushed me! The Thrusters were my weak spot - as I was only doing 2-3 at a time. Chins are getting stronger for me - yesterday I hit a PR of 9chins in a row (following Katie's amazing 24!), and instead of doing 1-2 at a time like I used to, I'm now doing 3 at a time. Of course - doing 100 chins takes a toll:

Yup - my first blood blister. I'm both proud and a bit grossed out! It will heal though!

Also - I've been meaning to give Jessica a shout out for a while for how she gutted through Angie with bleeding hands. She just wouldn't stop! Here are some pictures:

Notice the gloves on her hands!

Yup... Angie was a fun day....
