Six rounds of anything is a bitch and a half. Make it pretty much all legs and throw in 400M runs every round and you got yourself a full-on disaster! We all faced it head on though, and I’m sure SSgt Loredo would be proud of the effort.
Matis took the cake at the end of the party, finishing in a ridiculous 18:52, prompting Julia to say “I don’t even want to know what that feels like” – and I agree. Freaking awesome work, Matis – as well as Grantham (20:22) and Dan (20:20) who held the lead at different points in the day.
Tomorrow we get back in the benchmark swing with “Helen”, a blurry mashup of running, KB swings and pullups that will leave you feeling like you never want to meet the girl it was named after.
