    PR of 5 pull-ups but no band this time! Yay
    Good work 6amers, Trent and Vincent I have
    Fun trying to keep up with you, you guys are fast!

    1. I think you’re the fast one, considering they are twice your height and you can still keep up with them!

  4. The tough mudder event was so much fun! I had a blast. I’m not in that photo cause I finished earlier (3hrs 20 min) and had to take off to head back to the family. I was able to complete all the obstacles with out any help. ( crossfit training really helped for most, if not all of it, especially the funky monkey bars and Berlin walls) I don’t think I would have been able to complete these unassisted before crossfit 10 months ago.
    See you guys soon

      1. Ummmm….yeah….Mr Pretzel, come next week and “hang out” with us for 30 minutes again…holy flexible! I was happy to *almost* get my elbow to the floor until I looked over and you had your entire chest flat on the floor! LOL. Nice work!

  16. Thanks guys!

    As tough as it was, i felt like crossfit trainning got me more than prepared for this event. Many runners struggled on the steep hills. Some puked, many had severe cramping, etc. I wouldn’t say it was easy but i felt great through the whole thing. I’m already considering doing it again. Who’s with me? Haha

    1. Not surprised that Crossfit prepared you for this event. Congratulations on finishing Tough Mudder unscathed…(well, except for your hair, but damn, you look so BAD ASS with that mohawk!)

    2. Ditto to that Pat. CrossFit was the best training for this type of event and I felt great through the whole thing, and surprisingly, only a little bit sore today. Such a fun time and oh, what a rush at the finish line!

      1. Congrats on your “Tough Mudder” status Heidi….but then again, I always knew you were πŸ˜‰

    First time for this one I think (even after 2 years!) Would love to have run fast enough to get a few more PU in that last round – 400m is a lot of running for 3 extra reps!!

    Good job in the heat everyone!

    Love you baby ;P

      1. Thanks. My forearms are telling me it was alot. I could have been faster on the runs but I was just feeling gassed tonight for some reason. Alot of bad eating and drinks on the weekend would be the culprit I think.

    This was great. It will definitely be a regular workout soon.

    1. Ohhhhh…I like the look of this πŸ™‚ Last time “Nicole” came up as a WOD (June 2/11) I had a shoulder injury and subbed Max Front Squats for Max Pull ups. From what I recall it was “deeeee-lish”!

    1. Wow…huge numbers on the pull ups. Great job.

      Sorry I missed your Dad’s first WOD. I look forward to seeing him around the gym!

  25. Gotta say, CrossFit REALLY prepared me for the Tough Mudder both mentally and physically. It’s a very challenging course, but I knew given what I have accomplished at CFM that I could get through it. We stayed together as a pretty large group but what we gave up in time we made up for in team spirit. An AMAZING experience! CrossFit Moncton was well represented! See you at the box soon!
