"I was unable to walk for a whole week after that, so much did the race take out of me. But it was the most pleasant exhaustion I have ever known. "
- Emil Zatopek
.
In 1952 Emil Zatopek achieved the impossible. At the Helsinki Olympic Games he won the 5,000 meters, the 10,000 meters and the Marathon, setting an Olympic record in each event. Never before or since has an athlete approached his epic performance!

So sad that I hurt my toe so that I couldn't finish with the last .5 mile run! Damn chair getting in the way of my kip!

I had beautiful weather here yesterday so I did this after work (thursday) on a 400 m track.
1st 800 m run: 3:21
10 rounds: 19:21
2nd 800 m run: 3:34

One reason I love cross fit so much is that you can totally smoke yourself and all you need is one pull up bar and a small piece of ground.
