I saw that 24 WODs/24 Hours thing and thought "Wow, someone's going to die." Seriously, if someone actually finishes it, I would not be surprised by a hospital stay.
People talk about the potential health complications of marathon running, but I would run a marathon any day, with minimal training, before I would do that stupid ass "contest". At least I can walk a marathon and not be ridiculed so long as I finish. If I didn't vomit at least a few times in that 24 WOD thing, I may be excommunicated.
And when is peer review a concept to be considered hilarious? We're not talking about periodized calf and ab training here.
