Best of luck

5k Run

Compare to July 25/11

We have a few folks from CrossFit Moncton headed down to Vermont this weekend for the Tough Mudder. It’s a gruelling challenge that goes over, under around and through a ski mountain (nothing like Poley Mountain). Check out the Vermont event in the video below. Looks like they will be cold, wet and muddy. Best of luck and way to represent CFM!

    5K
    Time: 29:30

    Before Crossfit the farthest I ran was 4K and the longest I could go without walking was about 1K.
    Today was 5K unbroken!!…..thanks crossfit I’m really happy with my results!!!
    Definatly a result of crew and coaches.

    7k- 31:11

    7k?? you ask, well someone had to test the route to CFM standards 😉 At the end of the run Kevin informed me that he had one loop too many, did 3.5 laps instead of 2.5. With Gilles info at lap 3, my time would have been in the 21-22 min mark. Must say, the Running drills helped quite a bit. No cramps and was able to finish strong. Nice morning for a run.

    Good Luck Tough Mudders!

    Good luck Uncle Patrick, Mario, Blake, Marcel and Heidi! I just watched that video…looks crazy and FUN! Can’t wait to hear all about it! 🙂

    I have to admit that when I checked the site this a.m. and sae the 5k I did a mental happy dance that today is a rest day for me – but now I’m a little sad about missing the running drills, ’cause no one needs them more than yours truly. Maybe next time…

    1. Jeff s

      CHERRY PICKER!! Don’t believe for a second that this was a scheduled rest day for you.. Get out of your comfort zone Steeves!! 🙂 on another note, Kevin can you cancel my 6:30 as I’m feeling under the weather!! lol

      1. Heather S

        It doesn’t take 5k to put me out of my comfort zone – a good 400m will do it! On the other hand, if I did the wod and you were under the weather (and running backwards) maybe we could run together 🙂

  5. Amanda

    I’m bummed to be missing the 5k run too…I think this will be the first one I’ve missed since I started 2+ years ago but I really need the rest day.

    Plus a 1k run to the gym, no PR today..still a great workout. I do not care to run in the heat though!

    Good Luck Tough Mudder competitors!

  7. Mario

    From all the CFM participants, thanks for all the good luck wishes! Darsey is also going with us to tackle the mud run.

  8. Heather S

    I knew a couple of those who were going to Tough Mudder, but now that I see the whole list I am impressed, but not surprised. Each one of you guys gives a 100% every time and that never-say-never perserverance (aka bitciness 🙂 ) will take you all the way this weekend. You guys don’t need it but Good Luck anyway!!

  9. Blake

    Thanks for the Tough Mudder well wishes guys! Thankfully Mario has been working on his squats and will be able to carry me …literally…through most of it!
    Lots of video and updates to follow!

  10. Frank

    Good luck Patrick, Heidi, Marcel, Blake, Darsey and Mario! It’s going to be brutal but think of how cool of an accomplishment it will be when you guys cross the finish line. Think about the beer you’ll get at the end 🙂

    Running drill

    WOD : 5k Run
    scale – 3K Run
    Time = 18:23 (killed myself trying to keep up with Gilles had to walk off a bad cramp for 25-30 feet but still a PR of 1:02(may 23/12) Kevin running drill really help)
    cash out – back stretch and leg stretch

  12. Mario

    WOD: 5k run = 28:14

    Around 2 mins under my PR I believe. Doesn’t matter, this is the first time since spring that anything over 1k felt great. I will gladly take it.

    Bring on the mud!

    1. Lora

      So happy you were able to do the whole 5k and still feel great. Take care of your back and no matter how much he BEGS, don’t carry Blake, ok? LOL

    1. Natacha

      Thanks! It actually started getting sweet after the 3rd k… Closed my eyes and imagined being on water… Kinda cool!

    Practiced running “Barefoot”

    Did not have running shoes and my body asked for a low impact day so I substituted the run for a 5K row.

    5k row: 21:21

    1. Lora

      Truly “barefoot”? Ouch!
      Nice time on the row. Did you at least get to set up the rower outside? I imagine it was quite a sweat-fest.

      1. Sheldon W.

        Well we weren’t really barefoot, just landing on the balls of your feet vs traditional heel to toe. Some folks refer to this style as barefoot running.

    2. jeff

      nice row sheldon.. and “forgetting” your shoes, what a shame but not sure rowing 5k would be a great trade off in my books!.. good work.

  14. Corinna

    WOD: 5 km run

    Time: 24:13

    Last time: 23:22 I did not take the right route last time so this is more indicative of my time. Thanks for keeping me in this one Darsey! Tough running in the heat and wind, but felt great once it was done.

    Congrats to all who conquered a 3km/5km run or row today!

    Awesome job on your 5km row Laura! I am very proud of you!

    WOD : 5k Run 27:15 PR Distance running is not my forte. It was still fun though!!

    Got beat by a 13 year old. My son Marc ran it in 23:02.

  17. Joanna

    Awesome runs (and rows) today peeps!

    Practiced some knee jumps tonight, got up to 3 45# plates, surprised I could get up that high. Good times!

    5k run
    Time 29:15

    Thought about scaling it but decided to go for it. so very glad i went for it super happy with the sub 30 mins didn’t think i was going to get it but pushing hard gets you results! Great job everyone was a hot one.

    WOD: 5k run = 27:03

    PR. Last time I did a 5km I was just over 28. Considering it was so hot out during the 5:30 class, I am super happy with my time and that it was unbroken.

    Good warm up for Parlee! If you’re bored this weekend, come to Parlee beach on Saturday and Sunday. There is a Ultimate Frisbee beach tourney! 🙂

      1. Valérie Arseneau

        Thx Lora!

        The knees bugged just a lil tad. Physio said my quads are too tight. So before the run I foam rolled for like 20 mins.

  20. jeff

    beach wod.. WU (laying out towel)

    for time:
    walk 200m to water jump in to cool off
    walk 200m back to lay on towel and get hammered by blowing sand
    200m walk to water jump in cool off, wash off before mentioned sand..
    burn ever so slightly..

    time 3:30:24.. not a PR but thinking if the weather holds it might be!!

    great job by everyone today tackling the 5K run.. wish i would have done that instead but really needed a rest day! and i’m sooo rested..

    Good Luck to all at Tough Mudder this weekend!

    1. Lora

      No wonder you were so tired when I got there 😉

      Too bad you strained your wrist twisting off all those beer caps…hope it heals up quickly.
