COT 3 of 3 was read verbatim

I made the mistake of waiting two days to file this Backblast.  I winged something.  It was, y’know, it was good… but I don’t have any particular memory of the wisdom I let drip outta my head.

Oh, dear God… whoever wrote this workout is tougher and has far more stamina than I can muster. Same goes for some of our other PAX… there was …”some modification” by the end.  Very few of our PAX had gotten to Mountain Climbers in Circuit #2 when we simply ran short on time.  I had everyone switch to Mountain Climbers so we didn’t end that circuit with some of us still trying to finish Bonnie Blairs.

We called time on everyone during the Captain Thors of the Mary.  There may have been some finishers, but I was too broke down to look around and see.  I extended our finish time by two minutes in order to make up for the three COTs during the workout.

– I may NOT have been the ideal Q for this one, but I’m awfully impressed by our crowd.
