  1. This was a good one at 6am. 12:42rx – not swift but a 2:14 improvement over last time.

    Brad, I figured out how I did my last helen so fast. I was at LTF on the treadmill running on 9.0. Can’t really compare that one!! The one today will be my benchmark!! Thanks for thinking I couldn’t do it in 12:20!!!!!
    P.S. This eating challenge is getting in the way of my eating! My mind and heart are not in it! Anyone for regrouping and starting on 1/1/2009? Please say yes, my Big Mac is warming up in the microwave!

  3. What a great benchmark WOD. Good luck everyone. I will be out for a few days. Miss you all and see you soon.

  4. Great job Martine! Good form on the KB swings.
    Austin, I did “Helen” in 10:21. If you are a decent runner then you should easily beat my time.
    Katie, Kim says I owe you both dinner for your awesome performances last week. I’m thinking Krispy Kreme would be good for you, it just might slow you down when I’m trying to keep up with you on the runs.

  5. Since today will involve some running… I thought this might give everyone a laugh and a way to keep busy at work:

  6. lucky for you ed I am in fact a horrible runner so your time SHOULD be safe.
    we shall see, my biggest weakness is the stupid KB swings. Can’t have any breaks. I think I did this at one world with an actual 55 lb kettle bell but with flat runs in like 10:30 something. So I am expecting something in the high tens low 11’s today. This is a fun one.

  7. Hey guys – it’s good to be back! I missed everyone. Today was tought after a 6 week hiatus, but hopefully I’ll be back in the swing of things in a couple of weeks. I was just glad I could still do some pull ups!
    Good to see all of you again!!

  8. good job to everyone in the 5:15 crowd! it was so great to see kamilah and stanley again. (peggy, you are still missed.)
    big ed, i’m going to have to pass on your offer to sabotage my running game 🙂 thanks for teaching my students to say “go devil dogs” last week though – they were precious!

  9. Sorry I missed my twin (Stanley) today. Kami, great to have you back!
    GND, u know u want those Krispy Kremes.
    Craig, great time on the runs.

  10. Great job today! Kamilah it’s great to have you back! We missed you! Stellar performances today by Big Ed, OCD, Hicky, Maulucci, Michael, Kevin, there’s so many it would take to long to type! See ya’ll tomorrow. if you would like to see a spreadsheet visit http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=p82f79T_c52exva_nKEJMRg
