Rope climbing is super-dy, duper-dy fun except that you get blisters on your hands and rope burns on your inner thighs and side of your lower leg. I need to perfect my rope climbing outfit. These shorts did not prevent rope burn. I tried boot cut pants, but I would step on the bottoms and pull my pants down as I climbed. Not good. Long socks work well and maybe I need to wear soccer shorts? I'll find out at the next rope climbing fest...

Here are a few of my personal records. I’m not feeling braggy as I write this because I most certainly get my can kicked in a big way by most people, but this is pretty good for me. I’ve come a long way in the 10 months that I’ve been at crossfit. Just want to record where I am, and see if I continue improving.

500 m row 2:01 min.
2000 m row 9:35 min.
1 mile run 8:52 min (course with some hills)
max push ups in 2 min.: 47
max 15’ rope climbs in 2 min.: 3
1 rep max:
back squat 135 pounds
front squat 120 pounds
shoulder press 70 pounds
bench press 85 pounds
deadlift 175 pounds
overhead squat 75 pounds
Olympic lifts:
Clean 90 pounds
Snatch 65 pounds
Jerk 105 pounds
Clean and jerk 95 pounds

Stuff I really need to work on: double unders, wall ball

I should write down what the women’s records are for our gym. It blows my mind. I’ll have to get that info.

P.S. Today's workout was craaazy. By the end we had done 150 reps of kettlebells swings, burpees, and GHD sit ups. Ahhhhh:
