Apologies to Tam for hijacking the thread momentarily.

Be prepared to shield your eyes. More or less wfs, I s'pose. Not recommended viewing if you have just eaten or are about to. Or have ever.

This is great. For real.

And, I will forgive you for shaving. It is going to itch like hell as it grows back .

We never row for WODs because we only have one rower at my affiliate. So, I torture myself at home. But, I just do not think I could ever force myself to do 1000m x 6. No way.
It was pretty horrible. My lungs had that post-Fran burn from about the 3rd one on.

It's a very close trim, not a razor shave. Hard to tell in the pic though.

Update! So, I wasn't planning to do Grace again this soon, that's for sure. But, my husband said he thought he could do Grace Rx'd. "You don't think I can C&J 135 lbs five times per minute?" Um, no. That's a 6:00 Grace, and you've only cleaned 135 lbs a handful of times, and your form sucks. But, whatever...we decided to go head to head. He ended up scaling to 115 lbs, which was definitely the right decision. So...

Grace Rx'd

April 25, 1010 = 4:48

Holy . 4:48. I was determined to pace myself better because that's where I screwed up on April 1. So, I started off at what I thought was a reasonable pace. Then, my coach told me I was at 1:00 when I was 10 reps in...and, I thought, crap, I am going too fast. But, it didn't feel too fast. And, then I got over 20 reps and she said something about going sub 5:00, and I wanted to scream "DON'T FREAK ME OUT!" So, 4:48 it was. Oh, and my husband did 5:16 at 115 lbs. Not too shabby for a first effort . And, I worked with him before and after to straighten out his horrible form. I definitely should NOT coach him.

I'm totally doing a happy dance right now.
