Welcome to Simplefit. That's a great start! The collective wisdom is that when you get to about 30 rounds on D1, you're getting into the leveling up range.

Have a great vacation! Then back to work!

Round 4
05/31/2012 - D1L3 - 21 rounds (after a relatively long and tiring break, 30 rounds seems a loooong way away)
06/04/2012 - D2L3 - 4:56 (2 min rest between rounds)
06/06/2012 - D3L3 - 5:43 Pull ups and push ups done in sets.
Will continue with L3 next round.

Great job! It looks like you are really ready for level 4. The D2 time with 1 min rests is particularly impressive. Everyone does the pull-ups and push-ups in sets for D3. The important thing is that they are done sequentially (i.e. all of the pull-ups before any of the push-ups, rather than in rounds like D2).

Just to clarify D2L3 of 5:18 (1 min rest between rounds) means total time taken was 9:18. After subtracting 4 min for the rests I get 5:18.

Severe muscle strain in upper back/neck area. I think I'll be out of commission for 6 -8 weeks.
Bummer.
p.s. Not due to simplefit, but from getting extremely tense in the dentist's chair.

Wow that really sucks. I guess maybe you could still do squats. Let us know how the recovery goes.
