“In every workout there is a moment when a disproportionate amount of relief would come just by slowing down a teeny tiny bit. The ability to resist this temptation and not slow down is what most people are incapable of… How do I accomplish this next level? Before the workout I accept and deal with the pain intellectually… I make a decision to ignore the pain and ignore all impulses to slow down or stop. During a workout there is no choice… It’s already been made… My only limitations are now only what my body is capable of doing.”

    I’m pretty sure I could smoke Josh Everett… shotgunning a beer.

  2. Stephen says:

    Neil, does this imply that you could defeat Josh at a beer-shotgunning competition? Or rather that you could defeat him at a WOD that includes shotgunning beers? Either way, it sounds like you have some hidden skills that need to be seen…

  3. Neil says:

    I can see the confusion there; I was referring to simply shotgunning a beer, or two for that matter. Shotgunning is the elusive, and not publicized, 11th fitness domain that I mastered at a much too young age.

    Warmup actual shoveling… drive way with ice 25:33
    Fran ( f u Tim) 5:59PR by almost a min
    Thrusters 165-175-185f-185-195pr-205f-205f I think 205 would be possible without the fran ( f u Tim).

    Thinking about running a marathon or something just to calm down

    Two misses were by a total of 3″. Highly annoying, given the fact that 205 isn’t even a difficult push press for me. I know I didn’t do “Fran”, but I think I’ll still blame Tim for the misses.

    By the way – nice “Fran” PR, Jason.

  10. Tim says:

    So I saw the Josh Everett quote and the Thruster WOD and thought of only one thing….Fran
    So I did Fran

    4:13 – right back at ‘cha Jason

    Then Thrusters


    By the way, Josh was an instructor at my Level 1 Cert, what an amazingly humble and ridiculously strong dude. I’ll tell you some stories sometime….

  11. Stephen says:

    Pretty fast, Tim. May the quest for sub-4 (or dare I say 3?) begin…

    190 – 210 (PR) – 220f – 215f – 212f – 212f – 212f

    Too large a jump from 2nd to 3rd rep. Lesson learned for next time
