This post is a story. Of my life. Tonight. Only read it if you want a laugh (or 4) at my expense. Otherwise, the result video (and a sneak peak of the 5th Again Faster workout – “Russell”) are at the bottom of this post. Ready…. begin!

It’s been a good week of training so far, so I decided to give the 4th workout of the “Again Faster – Beat the Team Series” a try.

The workout, “Austin” was a 7 minute AMRAP. That meant in 7 minutes, you did as many reps as possible of:
2 Muscle-Ups / 2 Deadlifts (335#)

After working out at CrossFit Lakewood at 5pm, and then coaching the 6pm and the 7pm classes, I realized that I didn’t have enough free space on my GoPro to record the full workout. After calling my buddy Rj “Rejalicious” Smith IV who coaches at CrossFit LoDo, he let me know that I could take his keys to LoDo and do the workout there. Lifesaver!

I got there, and my friend Katie Mac (who literally lives across the street from the gym), offered to come over and give me some moral support while I went through the WOD. I graciously accepted her offer! I loosened up a bit (it was freeeezing tonight), set up my weights, and set up my camera to record the workout. About 45 seconds into the workout, Katie looks over at me and then points at the GoPro….

Yep. I went to Rj’s and cleared space off of my memory card and was ready to go! Little did I realize, my battery was low, too. So, almost 1 minute into the workout, the camera died completely. Hey, it’s better than 5 minutes into the workout, huh?

We plugged Katie’s phone in and let it charge a little more, and then it was off to the races… for the second time.

Aside from being a little frustrated and not picking up the deadlift bar a little faster in-between rounds, I am happy with the way this workout went.
For those of you that stuck with this ridiculous evening’s summary, thanks for your time. 🙂

And to Katie Mac, thanks for being CLUTCH and being there, recording the workout on your phone and then just sitting around chatting with me until the darn thing uploaded!
