    Teamed with Kelsey and Becky.
    73:23ish. Scaled thruster, Dl, and KB.

    Team Such a Stretchy Muff.
    78: something. Rx. Grant went down so had some rest time thrown in for me and Such so finish time is pretty much guesswork. .
    That was just a brutal WOD. Made Murph seem like a walk in the park. No way I’m ever doing that by myself.

  3. Not regretting my decision to go ride 4 wheelers with my family!

  4. Such a great time with the MP Vertical Family. Nothing brings a family together more than a bunch of SUCK!

    Great work everybody! We are done…until
    The 4th LOL

  5. Teamed with Speedy and Queen B
    73:23 scaled-I went to 93#deadlift and 53# thruster for last 3/2 rounds (respectively). Shoulder popped out on a thruster and deadlift form was terrible-didn’t want to risk injury.
    That two days post weighted Murph was awful. Something about a hero WOD makes you want to keep going though.

    Teamed with 2 Vertical buddies.
    Not sure on our time. Close to the 90 minute cap.
    Scaled. 73# thruster, 135# DL, 35# KB. Hands didn’t hold up after murph during this wod, so switched to hanging knee raises instead of k2e last couple rounds.
