    A morning in the life of a Crossfit Couple
    ——————————————–

    As he awakes he thinks to himself – day 4 of the zone, here we go – meanwhile his wife, a school teacher, lay beside him in bed thinking, I know there are sick days for teachers but do they have sore days?

    Meanwhile the two being their morning, he is quite suprised how much 1 ounce of cheese acutally is – nevertheless he is not worried. He hear’s a few faint screams from the shower, ahh soapy waters entering the wounds from 100 pull ups, my poor wife.

    He thinks to himself, he I kinda like this breakfast. Much better than that disgusting burrito breakfast I tried yesterday that included 1/3 of an onion. He doesn’t mind onions, but at 6 in the morning…

    All of a sudden, a crash from the bathroom.

    Quick to his feet to run and see his wife. It was the unimaginable. A battery operated toothbrush had hit the floor and there was toothpaste everywhere. His wife had to let go of the brush because it was hurting her hands too much…

    Moral of the story…we’re all crazy.

    Hey everyone, the online registration is currently down. If you need to make a change or register, shoot me an email. This issue should be corrected later today. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    In biochemistry, eicosanoids are signaling molecules made by oxygenation of twenty-carbon essential fatty acids, (EFAs). They exert complex control over many bodily systems, mainly in inflammation or immunity, and as messengers in the central nervous system. The networks of controls that depend upon eicosanoids are among the most complex in the human body.

    Not as bad as I thought but the backwards really sucks. I think those guys who wait to go to work at Allsco had a really good laugh at my expense. Gillyon, I hope you are o.k. I am still amazed that you did all of those pull-ups unassisted. AMAZING!

    Stayed for the 630 class to cheer on the crew and work on MU progression. Tks Kevin and Pierre for all your help – Much appreciated, I feel on track with my Thanksgiving goal… I think about it everyday. Man that false grip on the rings is killer on the wrists.
