    Mean Gean! I want to be you when I grow up!

  2. 34:21, many mods, did some extra reps too because I kept messing up the counting
    Thanks for letting me crash the 0530 class guys!
    Merry Christmas!
    And Gene, you rock!

  3. DNF. I struggled today. 53# bar

    Merry Christmas everyone!!

    38:44. Rx. 1:56 Pr. Hooray for Christmas.

    35:10. Pistols to box and they were ugly. No Pr. Hooray for the two pounds of spaghetti I ate last night. Felt it on round 10.

    Fun 8:45er class! As John McClain, the best Christmas hero ever, said “yippee ki yay *+**^€==~”

  6. 40+ minutes…too many mods to list. I knew this wod looked too easy.
    Merry Christmas!!

  7. 41:16 Rx. 16 seconds slower than last year but Rx this year. Spent 3+ minutes on the last 5 ring dips. Gotta work on those. Call me crazy, but I like this wod…

    26:50 Rx
    49 second PR!

    Worked on each exercise unbroken, walk between events, and then “pick up and go”.

    This WOD always surprises me on how fast you can go through the first “9 days”, but then 10, 11, & 12 take about the same time.

    Strong work today folks!!

  9. 32:19rx

  10. 34:55Rx other than pistols to a box.

  11. 39:22 at master’s prescribed 115# 24″box 45#kb

  12. 46:39 Scaled
    Pistol attempts (surely some of those counted)
    1-2 Rx HSPUs, then like 3 with 1 ab mat, and then everything else on the tire.

    Shoulders were fried. So slow on dips, HSPUs, PLUs, and row.

  13. 40:43 Mod
    73# Bar
    Pistols w purple band
    Ring dip w band
    18″ box
    HSPU with ab mat

    Look forward to this WOD every year!
