WOD: 15 Minute AMRAP:
200m Row
5 Front squats, 185#/125# (no racks!)
2 Rope climbs, 18'

Only 2 rounds. I can't tell if i am getting sick or just allergies but I got the snot kicked outta me by today's session. I sucked today.

First time ever climbing a rope and tore a bit of skin off my fingers. Almost got a muscle-up on my third try during our warm up.

I thought for a second about taking tomorrow off. It was a second too long...


I didn't get this far in life taking it easy.



For the goal-oriented individual falling short leads to an unsentimental self-assessment, and the bigger the failure, the deeper one must cut to root out the cause. And the harder one works to turn it to advantage. A former climbing partner once wrote that, "staying focused while truly opening oneself to actual risk of total failure beats specks of gold out of the dross* that comprises the bulk of modern man's existence."

-Mark Twight
