I convinced Paul and Dork to hold off so that we could be in the final heat together. Paul had the leader board with a 6:50 to my 7:19. Rico had all ready put up a 7:09 to push me to 3rd on the leader board. Rowing between Paul and Dork I knew I couldnt or shouldnt try to match their pace. Dork ended up doing a 3:13, Paul a 3:20. and I did a 3:33. I knew I had to do the Thrusters unbroken. I was matching Paul's speed but that wasnt good enough as I was already behind. Paul finished and I was 3 reps behind. My saving grace was that Paul stopped to chalk up his hands. I went right to the bar and kept going until I was at 30 finishing just before Paul. It was a great push for me. The more I train head to head with Paul the better.
My final time was a 6:12. That is a minute and 7 seconds faster than the last time I did it.
I visited Dr Gale today to have him work on my arm. Much better after one treatment.
