  9. Yes, Jen Roe, that was a ton of squats. Holy glutes!
    6 rounds here + 400 jumprope and 20 squats.

    I'm surprised by my will to continue even though most of me is screaming to quit. I think that's the best thing these workouts have given me, determination.

    1. I agree! These workouts have definitely taught me that I can push my body farther than I think I can. I didn't think I would make it through this one but I did and now feel great about it.

  10. I almost lost it when I saw today's WOD. Then I said "Suck it up, buttercup!" and I went and did it!
