Watching everyone post through my phone has me all giddy... I'll post the WOD when I get home in a bit, as promised. Note to self: Ultra Marathoners don't get out of breath during training, holding own breath to appear resilient only causes dark spots in eyes. Damnit.

Great day today, we were pretty blown away by the sheer volume of CrossFitters that assaulted CFNH this afternoon.

I also want to thank everyone for starting to post scores again, makes things much easier to track for us and as always it provides another venue for obscene amounts of sarcasm. Carry on.

Back Squats 135lbs
"Sisyphus" Rx'd
4 rounds + 1 muscle up
ultra runners never get out of breath when training cause we run sooo slow it's that that short fast crossfit stuff that I hate & kills me.
Altitude Training: holding your breath running fast uphill until you see the blackness close in wake up puking green is good prep for Leadville 100

Wait a second... there's no need to worry about blacking out, if we do we'll wake in the halls of Valhalla.
