Day 1 Week 2 - Monday 29, March 2010

Warm - up

10 good minutes of stretching

2-4 rounds
20 pull ups
800m run
10 box jumps 20inch
800m run

Hope everyone had a restful recovery day yesterday, enjoyed their family and lives, and did their "homework". :-)


  1. Uggh... came down with flu like symptoms yesterday. Still felt off this morning so I missed the 5AM crew (sorry guys...). Went in at noon to give it a crack & ran out of gas about halfway through the first 800. Completed the round & threw in the towel. Hoping for better luck tomorrow.

  2. One of my all time favorite quotes, especially for warriors:

    It is not the critic who counts.
    Not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled or where the doer of great deeds could have done them better.
    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.
    Who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again.
    And who, while daring greatly, spends himself in a worthy cause so that his place may not be among those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

    Theodore Roosevelt

  3. WOW Gene, THANK YOU! That hits home!!!

  4. 36:06 (3 rounds)... thanks to Denny & Scott... otherwise I'm not sure how that workout would have ended up... but hey, I think I may have done those 60 pull-ups in less than 10 minutes... an improvement from Saturday!

    Travis... hope you feel better soon.

  5. Travis - hope your better ASAP!

  6. Feel better Travis!

    38:28 (4 rounds)
    My main focus was to complete the 20 pull-ups each round unbroken and my mission was accomplished. Awesome job 7pm crew, the rain and gust storm brought back memories of our Crazy Run :-).

  7. Thanks everybody. After a good nights rest, I think I'm back in action.

  8. 4 rounds

    All pull-ups and box jumps were in unbroken sets.

    Glad to see your doing better Travis!

  9. and the rain and wind made this all the more better!

  10. Before going out on operations in Iraq or Afghanistan, SEAL Team members would sometimes recite the INVICTUS poem as a silent prayer. The poem was originally written by William Henley in 1875 and has been used in countless instances of people overcoming adversity, including being read to the Country after 9/11 in a national address by then Secretary of State Colin Powell. (Forged clothing)


    Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever Gods may be For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of Circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of Chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    William Henley 1875
