Last time I hit Daniel, the blog was short. There was no witty commentary to be had. That's cause last time I did it, I hurt like the dickens and couldn't really type. So I'm comparing this Daniel to the one which we did back in April. April seems like a lifetime ago. So much has happened since then, but nonetheless it's a benchmark. So, let's do a comparison of a few months ago shall we?

Wait, did I really just write that? Holy balls Batman! (Can you tell that currently balls is my favorite word? It substitutes nicely for other profanity. :P ) Seriously, I dropped almost 7 minutes off this time. Not seconds, MINUTES. That's just sheer insanity. The chins on the first 50 felt AWESOME. I broke into sets of 10 and the rhythm just felt smooth. I'm going to get that 30 chins. I don't know when, but I'm going to get them. Notice I'm not really talking about the thrusters or the running... that's cause they... ew. Just ew. Andrea and Chriss said they looked good, but man it's so hard to feel about thrusters. They are kinda like burpees. As much as I want to like them, I just can't. They're kinda like the kid in class who picks his nose. You know he's not really all that bad, but you just can't like him no matter how hard you try. Humidity really slowed down the runs for me tonight. I think if I would have done this on a less humid day, (ha! we won't have one of those til December!) I may have dropped another minute, but I had a really hard time breathing today. Blech...
I was going to try to hit the 30 today... you know me... I've just got that itch. And you know that when I get "the fever" the only remedy is MORE COWBELL!!! I'm sorry... if you're not in the 0600 class, this probably doesn't make much sense to you, but it seems that we've been referencing the classic Christopher Walken and Will Ferell skit from Saturday Night Live where Will Ferell is supposed to be a member of Blue Oyster Cult a lot lately. If you've never seen it, go to YouTube and search for it. It's hilarious. Anyway, back to my itching. Ew, sorry, that sounds bad. But seriously, sometimes, when I get the itch to do something, I just need to do it and get it out of my system. I listened to Andrea and Chriss today who advised against going with another max set. I know their logic was right, but like I said... I just get that itch and I need to scratch it sometimes. :)
As an aside, Danny came in today, and while we were all doing Daniel, he SMOKED through 50 muscle ups. Folks, homie smoked that in 15 minutes. No, you read that right. 15 minutes for 50 muscle ups.... damn! I told him if he hit 50 today I'd owe him breakfast. I'm starting to learn apparently that breakfast is a big motivating factor around CFOT... ;) LOL. Andrea and Chris suggested Friday for a possible PR attempt. I'm thinking... it's going to be GO time. I need me some breakfast... ;)
