  1. For those of you on the move and still want to Zone, there’s a food dehydrator on sale at Canadian Tire tomorrow for $35. That’s a huge deal!

    You can make and package your own beef jerky and dried fruits!

    Oct. 7/09: 1st Muscle-up: My trophy accomplishment for the month!! Set a goal to get one out by Thanksgiving and I nailed it!!

    I’ve heard & witnessed many awesome PRs this past month… let’s post’em folks!!! 🙂

  3. This hasn’t been a big PR month for me except small ones like Push Jerks(125 or 135) and Dead Lifts(205) I think. I’m still working up to my first Muscle Up. The ring dips in my warm up seem to help a lot so far.


    It was my goal and i finally got it. 🙂

    My new goal is to be nice to Jane each and everyday untill I leave

  5. thanks for all the awesome comments yesterday everyone! 🙂 Crossfit people rock!

    Kevin, I’m going to take my rest day today instead of tomorrow, i’ll bring your $$ also.

  6. Pull-ups!
    I got my first pull up after only one month of CrossFit.
    Now just a couple of weeks later I did unassisted pullups for the entire warmup.

    I really thought my first pull-up would only happen after a few months.

    This is from a guy that hasn’t entered a gym in 13 years!
    I’m following the Zone, feeling better about myself and loving CrossFit! 🙂

  7. HUGE accomplishments this month! Congrats everyone!

    I’ll chime in here too. My workout PR would be my sub-4 Fran. Never thought I get that. My strength PR would be my overhead squat at 180#.

  8. Jane made my cry so i wont be able to go tonight, so there is an open spot at 4 15

    Kev is there any spots open later tongiht at 5 30 and 6 30?

  9. Great PR everyone!! Mine will the ring dips….that happens way before I though I would be able!!

    I need to cancel for 5h30 class!

    Guess by the blood on my leg & knee the bar was close enough…

    1. I guess that picture worked! Everyone was keeping the bar against their legs tonight!

      Everyone should invest in some deadlifting (soccer) socks! Helps keep the skin on your legs.

  15. I did this nasty little wod tonight after everyone left. I did the rowing instead of running (much worse!)

    Row 250m

    Oh, and another PR for me (kinda) was Tuesday. The number of visitors to the site reached 890! That’s a new daily record! Keep telling your friends!

  16. Couldn’t come at the gym but still wanted to move!!
    warmup: 1K rowing

    wod: 4 rounds of:
    1 min plank
    1 min side plank
    1min other side plank
    1 min rest

    It was harder than I expect!!

    Good job on those ring dips Gill and Jeff!!
