    Hi Everyone, I am coming back to the States on Wednesday and I sold my car before I left. I am planning on buying one when I get back but until that time I am car less. Does anyone have an extra car that I could borrow / rent for a week or two? Thanks so much!!!

    • Min says:

      Hi Ali!!! Glad to hear you’re coming back!!! Were you able to find a loaner car? If not, I have an older CR-V that I can loan to you. It’s runs well and is a awesome car. Let me know.

    • Matt V says:

      Good thing I broke away from Monroe to push you through the end🙂 Wouldnt miss an opportunity to tell you to “pick up the damn bar”

      • TOS says:

        I was all excited to be partners! I saw that this morning was my favorite Matt V gets to yell at me WOD and I was pumped. Then that Monroe tried to totally steal you away. I can’t say that I blame him, but he better not try it again.

    So wife is having contractions on and off today, thought it best I stay close to home. So I did this outside on the patio. Problem is, I don’t have increment plates yet (2.5/5lb) so it was either 65# or 95#. Went with 65# but added 25 reps for 100 Total.

    75 Reps @ 65#: 5:02 (Muscle Snatch)
    100 Reps @ 65#: 7:23 (Muscle Snatch)

    Warmed up with 115
