    When the 6 footers show up this afternoon I expect to see some sub 17 minute times.

    EJ & Kelly. So happy for you guys. I hear that Cookville Tennessee has replaced Hawaii as the number one honeymoon location. Just putting that out there.

    Wow, that was rough. Mental toughness is all you need to get through this.

    You’ll see how I fell apart below (mental toughness/running out of gas)…

    Congrats EJ & Kelly – a double whammy birthday! Love it.

    I didn’t get to come in this AM because I had baby duty while my wife did yoga.

    Get used to taking turns! It’s worth it!

  5. EJ

    Thanks for all the birthday greetings and congratulations 🙂 Great to have such awesome support and love from the community.

    And per usual business…

    Took a rest yesterday and made a big difference. I’ve also figured out that, rowing faster doesn’t translate to faster finish.

    Ditto on Jenna’s post – It was my first Yoga session and was really great – if you looking for an active rest day, its perfect. I can liken the warm up to one we did a couple of Saturdays ago with Bboy – very intense!
    Also it was great to be outside, taking in whats left of summer.
    Happy Birthday DONNA!

    The rower tells you how hard you are not pulling

    Excellent wod, I hate rowing and I would do it again

    Honestly my ass hurts more than anything, they should put some cushion on those seats. My ass has a lot of cushion.

    First time rowing more than 1000 m (not sure I’ve even ever done that – how is that possible?)

    500m = 2:17
    1000m = 4:43
    2000m = 9:23
    1000m = 4:36
    500m = 2:04
    Total = 23:03

    DLede setting up a race in the last round among the girls definitely shaved 10s off my last 500m #shirtsoff
