October 23 workout

Surprise WOD tonight was the Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE). Sub 4:45 puts you in the RCMP. Sub 3 puts you in SWAT. Then we did max pushups for fun!

CrossFit is not just for young, fitness-frenzied athletes. It’s scalable so that anyone, of any age or fitness level can do it.

Check out this video of Sister Madonna Buder. She is the living example of one of my favorite quotes – “You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing”

  1. Wow! Sister Madonna Buder is beautiful and inspiring. Her friends worry about her getting hurt, but I think her spirit would suffer if she were to stop doing what she loves.

    3:17 for me!

    It was fun and harder than I thought!

    Tomorrow will be rest day for me in preparation for the race saturday!
    But I will still come and look at you guys suffering. 😀

  3. That’s an awesome-looking RCMP officer. I love that picture.

    CFWU x 3

    Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3

    135-155-170-185-195

    I wasn’t ready to stop so I tried more… 3-3-1

    200-200-225

    No PARE test for me. Yes the jump scared me (I admit it), but my leg was sore and it is causing me serious pain right now. I think it just needs rest and probably some stretching and cracking. Feels like an alignment issue.
