I did the Rower sprint intervals - 250 m sprint / 150 m rest - max intervals in 7 minutes - I managed 8 intervals, hard work!
We celebrated Heathers birthday after class with a Double Chocolate Stout and Cherry Wheat Beer combination. Yum!

We even managed to get the girls out for a walk, all of us got chewed on by bugs, but all in all a good rest day :-)

Dave let me stay doing 3 laps instead of pushing me up to do 4, thanks for that but I am not sure the rest of the guys agree as I managed to win again!Thanks again to Emma for looking after the girls.
Matt failing at 375# check out that horribly rounded back! UGLY!
The gym at CrossFit Watertown, even the girls came down and joined us.

Once that job was done it was time to ride. Donna and I headed to the Trail of Tears here on the cape and proceeded to get lost for 2.5 hours riding sweet hardpacked single track and a little bit of fire road. Great riding but easy to get turned around, the fact that there are no real hills makes it a pleasant experience no matter what happens.
Donna ducking for a low branch!
Matt riding some stumps!
Since we had worked up an appetite it was off to the British Beer Company Pub (http://www.britishbeer.com/index.asp) for lunch. Their latest addition is a seasonal Pumpkin Ale with the glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon. I know this sounds odd but it tasted great!
Finally we needed to walk the girls so headed to the canal and breakwater for some more fresh air.

Checkout Beth R. Feet firmly planted, shins vertical, good back arch, elbows locked out, focused on the ceiling and not the bar, everything engaged before she lowers the weight.
There was good group critique of everyones form which is great that way everyone learns even the instructor.
After the session Donna and I headed to Grafton Lakes to pick up race packets and check out the course for tomorrows Xterra. Looks like a small field and a wet course so it should suit us both well.
