Proof there is a God

Post by pigsteak » Thu Dec 01, 2011 9:09 pm

While some may deny his existence, a miracle occurred today that has made me a believer.

Lee Smith (one fall) has finally sent Table Direct. My biggest condolences go out to Matt Johns and Blake Bowling as they will be utterly lost 3 days a week, as their bodies were on auto pilot trudging up to Left Flank for I think the last 16 years on this proj.

Nonetheless, bad ass, and you have redefined grit, belief, and tenacity.
Positive vibes brah...positive vibes.

Hell freakin yea Lee. You are a fucking dedicated machine of a man. Light something on fire and drink some gasoline because you are invincible.

Thanks buddy. You have no idea how much I hate doing pullups.

Blake has it on his iPhone. He has MANY clips of the process. Hopefully I can get him to post up the finished product.

So sweet...

Now you can concentrate on the important things, like more training! I expect to hear of lots of epic beat-downs over the winter in anticipation of the next project.

Nice work.

Did it go down easy?

I know you guys like focusing on weight. What was the weigh in for that morning?

How many rest days did you have going in?

Was there direct sun on the bass mouth hold?

What was your warm up for the day? Which go of the day was the send?

What where the temps?

Total attempts?

Do you feel like this one was harder than Dirty Smelly?

I'll stop....... What is next?
