Do not fear the bar, make the bar fear you!!
-You’re your biggest obstacle so get over it and change the way you think.

QOD: A few I’ve collected over time…
“I’ll show you my jerk if you show me your snatch”
“Crossfit – Have you hugged the floor today?”
“I’d run away if I could use my legs”
” I clean, I jerk and I have a nice snatch”
“Do what? How many times? For how many rounds? And come back tomorrow?”
“You train to look good, We train to kick your ass” or “Bust mine to kick yours”
“Stop working out on machines, be one”
“Harder, Better, Faster, STRONGER”
“The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community.”
“OCD=Obsessive CrossFit Disorder”
*stealing some quotes*
SO many good ones! I especially like “OCD – Obsessive CrossFit Disorder”!
Ooh I love the floor hugging one! Haven’t heard that one before!
I Love “Bust Mine to Kick Yours”
Me too! I also like:
- you train to look good, I train to kick your @ss
- your girl does Pilates, I do pullups.

A quote regarding Chris Spealler in one of today’s artical in the Crossfit Journal…
“Spealler scares the big people, empowers the little people, inspires all the people.”
“You’ll pass out before you die” (one of old CFM T-shirt slogans) is one of my favourites.
“Your workout is our warmup” (on CF Fredericton’s tshirt, I think)
“Raise the bar” (forget where I saw this one)
“I would rather wear chalk than lipstick” (I think I heard Joanna say this the other day”
“Don’t just do it…do it for time”.
These are great!

“If you can’t fix it with squats or fish oil, you’re probably going to die.”

WUx1 (I arrived late was stuck in a meeting at work )
20-16-12-8-4 KBS 25#
Time : 5:39
Arriving late threw me off. Started off too slow. During my last set had like 3 no reps on the rings because I kept kicking the box and losing all momentum. Wasted a good 15secs + doing that…
Loved the WOD but I could of done much better. Boo.
QOD : “Embrace the suck” or any puns with snatchs or jerks lol.

Really sore from yesterday so it was nice to take extra time for the warm-up today.
My toes to bar felt awesome today! I loved this WOD!
Wow!! Awesome score!!
Sweet time! Sub 4:00! That’s crazy fast, Corinna
Crazy fast! Awesome!
Last time I did today’s WOD my time was 4:45 and I did situps and not toes to bar. PR 52 seconds. For all of you who are struggling with toes to bar; take it from the girl who could not do one of these 2 years ago, they do get better with work!
I was so discombobulated after the ” Nutts WOD” yesterday that I could not even imagine not remembering doing this WOD in the past. Well it turns out that I did indeed do this WOD last year and my time was 30:28, so I got a PR yesterday of 2:55!!!! Cool!
I guess we do eventually forget all the pain storms we put our minds and body through doing Cross Fit! Thank the Jesus I’d say!
Double PR! Nice job Corinna!
You continue to amaze, nice work again Corrina!
