  1. Day 80: Wednesday, Mar. 29 Goal 1: Eliminate sugar: Success Goal 2: Eliminate coffee: Fail Goal 3: Crossfit 3x a week: Rest. Went to the theater instead. Life Goal: Bullet Journalling done
  2. Using the action to tell a story: Wrestling! Shaar called it first, Kanobi has a lot of potential mileage
  3. 17.1 = 222 Scaled 17.2 = 107 Scaled 17.3 = 93 Scaled 17.4 = 16.4 = 175 Scaled 17.5 = 13:36 Scaled Due to a rise in the number of participants, it's hard to compare simply by ranking, so I'll use percentages. Also, due to a change in how Crossfit sets up the leaderboards, 2016 numbers don't take into account athletes who signed up but didn't submit scores for some or all of the workouts. Also, actual participants might be more, due to ties in the rankings. 2016 numbers 99.625th in the world out of 102.681 male athletes. Better than 3% of male participants 15.871th in Europe out of 16.248 male athletes. Better than 2,3% of male participants 47th in Greece out of 49 male athletes. Better than 4,1% of male participants 16.4 score: 146 reps 2017 numbers 181.368th in the world out of 201.949 male athletes. Better than 10.2% of male participants 35.292nd in Europe out of 38.237 male athletes. Better than 7,7% of male participants 127th in Greece out of 135 male athletes. Better than 5,9% of male participants 17.4 score: 175 reps While I had fun during this year's Open, I didn't feel badass or that I'd made any significant progress until 17.4 came up. Adding up the numbers now, it is apparent that I've done better on all fronts, but the slow grinding process makes it hard to realize.
  4. Score submission closed, I'd like to think that pretty much all of them have been verified and there are none pending. I fell to 127, but chubster remains at 131 so I beat him for 4 places, as opposed to last year's head to head race where I won simply by doing 16.5 Rx. 2016 numbers 99.625th in the world out of 102.681 male athletes.

  5. Mildly disappointed those aren't linked to hoses showering the runner as they move across the ring. OCRWC is getting soft.
  6. I completed the first Borderlands as soldier (Roland) as it was the most balanced, easy option. What I love about Krieg is he's so counter-intuitive. Most games I'll go for steady aim, pouncing from cover to cover etc. Krieg's skills force you to play all out bezerker and jump in the midst of it. It's not just his insane melee damage. He's got skills where he does more damage when his shield's down, when his health is low or while he's on freakin' fire. Seriously, he gets a skill that allows him to get hit by friendly fire, just so his teammates can light him on fire and set him loose. Couple that with Overkill, where if he kills someone with his axe, he recovers 'damage dealt-opponent's remaining life before hitting him' (so dealing 500 damage to a foe that had 20 hp left heals you for 480) and another skill where kills reduce his special power cooldown and you got an immortal meat grinder in perma-frenzy.
  7. Handy assistance tips: - Use a box, medball, chair or other device behind you. It will provide a depth signal once your butt hits it on the way down and help you get past the mental fear of falling - Try doing the Pistol Squats next to a doorframe or other sturdy vertical frame you can hold on to for support. If you want to make it slightly harder, ease the grip and simply use it as a guide to keep you vertical going down As per coach Mike Burgener's mantra, "when arms bend, power ends". Here's some interesting notes from his seminar.
  8. Hopefully while hanging from some sort of OCR obstacle
  9. Day 79: Tuesday, Mar. 28 Goal 1: Eliminate sugar: Success Goal 2: Eliminate coffee: Fail Goal 3: Crossfit 3x a week: Rest Life Goal: Bullet Journalling done Won't reveal what happens down the line, but at the time of the signings they both had potential. Inky also had mad skillz all around. As for Toby Juan Kanobi, I'll just say it's characters like that who made me want to write out the updates a tad more extensively
  10. No update? No color run photos? Tsk tsk tsk...
  11. Day 78: Monday, Mar. 27 Goal 1: Eliminate sugar: Success Goal 2: Eliminate coffee: Fail Goal 3: Crossfit 3x a week: 1/3 and we did Cindy, details here Life Goal: Bullet Journalling done I read it as a mix of this with this and the Roman soldierd from Asterix. Well played.
  12. Monday, 27 March Cindy 20' AMRAP 5 Pullups 10 Pushups 15 Squats Score: 9 rounds and 16 reps Comments: Pullups felt good, I'm finally recovering all the kipping skills and grip strength. Pushups are my achilles heel, but that's fine because the only way to improve is by doing pushups and Cindy is heavy in them. Squats were slower than normal due to a tweaked knee, but I still pushed through. Finished it off with a 500m row in 2:11, which sadly didn't break my 1:55 PR but after this and 17.4 I see considerable improvement in my rowing technique.
