Cert or Not? July 29, 2008Posted by Jericho in news, programming, workout.
Wow. It’s been quite a while since I last updated this (almost) daily blog. Since I last posted, I went underway for 3 months (well, two full months – one month was spent doing FCET ops and preps).
Anyway, just to post some highlights.
Worked out like crazy underway, but damn(!) is the food horrible! Not much for choice, and even if you try to get some good meat or veggies or fruit, it’s either fried, brown or canned. A person can only live on this stuff for so long. (Alas, it seems that 90% of the guys on the sub that I have to work with don’t actually mind the crap they feed us.) Thank God for beef jerky and Lara Bars.
I brought a pair of elite rings underway, and that was probably the best thing I could have brought. I was also able to improve my body weight WODs markedly: Cindy went from 13 rounds to 24 rounds; Angie went from 1/2 completed in 16:18 to a full Angie in 16:53. Murph time dropped from 47:11 to 39:47 and 100 burpies went from 11:05 to 9:08. I just wish the food was good!
The first weekend of Sept this year CFOW is holding a Level I Cert, and I really would love to go. The only problem is the price of $1000. I mean in some ways its a lot of money, and in others it is a damn good price for what you get. I’ll consider it more, as Jennifer has given me permission to go, but damn $1k. That’s quite a bit.
If you are reading this looking for updates on the Fitness App, stay patient. I’m working hard with what little spare time I do have. I’d rather release a lot later than an early as a piece of junk. I’m still attempting to hit the summer beta (alpha?!) and the end of July is quickly approaching. Anyway, back to coding.
