Friday’s QOD

Did you ask Santa for any CrossFit gear?

Yankee Swap!

Everyone that comes will select a number and then choose a ‘present’. Upon opening it, you’ll find a workout. If you were #2, you have the option of switching with #1. Number 3 can switch with 1 or 2, and so on. Person #1 will be allowed to switch with anyone…so you’d better hope to get #1!

  1. Ugh !!! This sounds like fun, and yet again this thing called work is sending me away again today. 🙁 I always miss the good ones and when I’m home I get wall ball and burpees!

  2. Pulled out Elizabeth this morning…yay

    Squat Cleans (135#)
    Ring Dips

    9:18 (no PR…knee acted up after first round, so switched to power cleans)

    1. Lucky! Cool coincidence too, same WOD as yesterday.

      Have you always had it as squat cleans on the board whenever we did it?

      1. Nvm, I just look at the old posts, all squat clean. Was under the impression I had done it with power cleans, but just realised I never did the full prescribed weight.

        Good score btw!

    2. I believe so. It’s always a hot debate on the main site. But I’ve always considered it squat cleans unless otherwise stated.

    “Yankee Swap”


    150 Walls Balls – (10 minute time cap)

    Completed 108 @ 12#

    1. I made the mistake of trading for Karen last year, I TRADED my gift to take Karen from someone….


  4. Yankee Swap – picked out Grace and got to keep it, Merry Christmas to me 🙂

    Rx’d – 3:59

    No PR but there’s a huge difference working out in the morning when you’re used to evenings in my opinion.

    1. Valérie Arseneau

      Already did 100 wall balls this week… I am hoping to avoid more wall balls… especially Karen! Last 2 times I saw her, we did not get along very well…

  5. WU x 1
    Group Workout disguised as a warmup

    Drew “Diane” and kept it.
    — Deadlifts @ 225#
    — Handstand Pushups

    Time: DNF – Had 3 HSPU left at 15 min.

    Did the first set of 21 HSPU of then did the rest with an abmat. Should have done them all that way and maybe finished. Need to practice kickups more and get my HSPUs back.
    Wrist felt good though so that’s a positive.

    Always fun though!

    Yankee swap. Got Elizabeth, traded for Isabel and ended up with Grace.

    Grace @ 65#

    Not a time PR but a weight PR. April 8, 2013 did Grace @ 50# in 2:54.

    1. Haha! Look at you talking about dying and complaining in the same sentence 😉

      Great job! That’s not an easy one!

    Pick and kept Elizabeth
    Small band

    Wish I had it in me to do this sans band, but 45 ring dips in a lot…

    Shout out to my traveling friend, Rachel. She tackled Fran today at CFM. Took a PR and sub 6 minute. 🙂

    1. PR for me too. 1 minute plus 10lbs heavier. Happy with this even though I felt like I sandbagged the first set.

    WOD “Yankee Swap”

    Was the second to pick. Got “Karen” which ordinarily I would love, but after Monday’s wall balls and burpees, my legs are wrecked. Quickly stole “Grace”. Quickly lost “Grace”….and got…………………………………..wait for it……………………………….yup, got “Karen” back.
    I guess it was meant to be.

    Karen @ Rx
    150 wall balls 14#, 10′
    Time = 8:07

    PR of 41 seconds from July. Super happy with that. Next time will try for sub 8:00.

    Love Yankee Swap day. Fun class Corinna.

    1. Yeah…sorry about sticking you with Karen, Lora, but as a 3rd round pick, this was my only play, unless I wanted to keep Karen for myself. No way hosay!! Congrats on the PR. See, I did you a favour 🙂

  13. Mob
    WU x 1 + first part of the group WU

    Yankee Swap!

    Fran – picked it and decided to keep it 🙂
    Thrusters 35#
    Pullups (black)

    Time : 9:10

    Happy to finish it under the cap and happy that I didn’t bail on the weights… my back up plan was to take the 10# plates off and do the thrusters with just the 15# bar if my knee acted up.

    Last time doing Fran was on 2013-07-29 and I had done push press @55# + air squats and finished in 6:09 mins. But I won’t compare because air squats are NOT thrusters.

    1. YAY for thrusters! I’m happy the “rehab” of your knee is going well enough to start doing thrusters. Onward and upward, my friend. Great work tonight. It was so nice to see you 🙂

  14. WU x 1

    Elizabeth @ 85#


    Squat cleans


    What?! Squat cleans!…It was just as mental as it was physical. Tried to maintain form throughout but some reps suffered!

    1. Way to go! Squat cleans require mental toughness, that’s for sure..especially after the week of WODs we’ve had. Great job!

    Thanks Kevin for your wish before u left tonight and Jack making it come true!!
    Yankee swap got #2 ended up with a
    Wod: Karen
    150 wall balls @ 20#
    Rx 8:19
    I had drawn Diane which I really like. Ended up with Karen which I don’t like.. Lol
    But it was a big pr because I have never finished it. I think I actually over paced it because I wasn’t as winded as I thought I would be.
    Very fun class Corinna, great work everybody tonight.

  17. QOD : My family doesn’t really ‘get’ the whole Crossfit thing yet… they just know I go to a ‘gym’ so they wouldn’t know what kind of stuff to buy. So I get to shop for xfit gear for myself, and since it’s a good ’cause’ I don’t feel guilty about splurging a little. 🙂

    WOD: yankee swap!! “Jackie”
    -1000 m row
    -50 thrusters @35#

    First time trying Jackie it was pretty good!!! Fun Day Thanks Kevin!

  19. WU x 1

    Pulled Karen debated trading with Heidi for Grace, but she threatened cutting me off; so I traded with Jeremy for Christine. However, Jenn B took her from me and gave me Diane…I still can’t believe it.

    Wod: “Diane”
    Dead lift @ 225
    Handstand push ups

    Scaled to 185#, haven’t done heavy DL in a while, HSPU with 25# plate & Ab Mat,

    Time: 10:38

  20. Yankee Swap

    30 Clean & Jerks @ 85#
    Time = 6:21

    10# more on weight, but time was 2 1/2 minutes slower than at 75#, so not so good. I’ll blame it on the Christmas diet….too many treats at the office these days.

    Grace is a sweet girl & I was happy to have kept her for myself, after a near miss of loosing her. I love you Marcel 🙂

  21. Mobility
