Deads are my fave. It’s been a while since I’ve hit 140, they felt good. GHRs are bloody hard! And the pistols surprised me today, didn’t know I could do them weighted :)

WOD

21-15-9 for time.

  • Deadlifts
  • 200m run
  • 1 muscle up

The run and muscle up are done in between each round, so the rep range applies only to the deadlifts.

COMPLETED: DNF (time cap: 30mins)

The deads and run were easy, as was the mu in the first round. It was just that single mu in the second round! After several failed attempts, I left the rings and just moved on into the 9 deads, then the run, and after a few attempts got a mu rep in the third and final round.

The point where I kept failing was the transition. I’d be a smidge behind the catch, but then my momentum would stop there and I’d fall. Just gotta work on the progression for that part of the movement and I should be sweet.

Hello! My name is Penguin and I’m a Netherland Dwarf rabbit! My life hasn’t started out quite as happy as I would have liked. I believe I may have been an Easter Bunny present to some family, and after a while, they didn’t want me anymore, so I was released outside to fend for myself. I was found outside in a subdivision not too long after the Easter holiday by a nice GHRS volunteer who took me in. My rescuer was worried about me, so she took me to get checked out by Dr. Colby at Windward Animal Hospital; I’m about seven months old and am in good health.

Since Easter, I’ve been living with my rescuer at her home but I would really like to find a permanent place to call my own. I’m really sweet once I get to know you. I start off shy at first, but then I warm up to you, especially if you pet me a lot! My fur is super soft and I like to lay down while being petted. On some occasions, I’ve been known to run and binky, and I especially love it when I get my papaya treat or Exact!! I like receiving love and attention and will be the best companion, if given the opportunity. If you think I may be a good fit for your family, please call the nice people at the House Rabbit Society and tell them that you’re interested in adopting me! I would love to meet you!

With bunny love and kisses,
Penguin

The result of trying to fire with a plugged barrel. 

Royal hussars from 2/1 GHR were on a live fire exercise in OKSBØL Denmark. While under a march from Bajshøj to a location called the “old petrol station” They drove into a sand dune and had the gun dug into it and did not care to check the barrel afterwards. When they eventually fired it was with the sad result you are seeing here. An act of carelessness and being caught in the moment.

me: why am i so hungry all the time

“Scientists say that drinking increases levels of ghrelin, a hormone that makes you feel hungry, so don’t be surprised if you shovel in more dinner after downing a glass of wine.”

 “ People ate 221 more calories from snack foods the day after getting 5.5 hours of sleep compared to when they snoozed for 8.5 hours, according to a study from the University of Chicago. At that rate, you could pack on almost a pound after two weeks of sleep deprivation.”
