Today we did "Thompson", named after David Thompson, a special forces officer killed in Afghanistan back in January.  It was a cool and challenging WOD, and I was happy to give this one my all in officer Thompson's memory, and in the general spirit of getting after it.

10 rounds for time of:
15 ft Rope Climb, 1 ascent
95 pound Back squat, 29 reps
135 pound barbells Farmer carry, 10 meters

scaled the rope climb by grabbing two rings (pushed together in the center) above my head, then jumping up touching alternate shoulders each rep (x15).  Man that farmer carry can be a serious bitch at the end of three rounds. I'm most comfortable with any kind of squat, so while doing 29 reps of back squats was no joke, I was able to get through those OK.

I don't currently have notes on the exact number of rounds I did, but I remember it being in the 3-4 range.  I hope to find the paper I wrote these on sometime soon.  For now the best I can remember is that I was toast at the end of my last farmer carry, and it would have been dangerous to continue...
