    1. You are right Mario, looking good Chris!! Sarah I promise this is the last time I check him out hahaha!! πŸ˜‰

  1. I would like to admire Rich from a far..but would love to hang out with Annie. I loved watching her compete in the games. Always smiling, but so focused.

    -Decided to do the challenge inbetween strength sets. Needless to say that I did not finish my OHS sets.
    -Member challenge: AMRAP 1 minute of 30′ shuttle run – 20
    -WOD Rxd – 9:06

    Oh my legs! Doing the challenge before this WOD might not have been the best idea.
    Great job, Maria! So fast!

    1. Actually, I am glad I did the challenge. Thank you Heidi for pushing me to do it. I love working out with you, you are so strong and are always willing to get out of your comfort zone. It is inspiring. πŸ™‚

    2. WOW! Great job on the shuttle runs,Gillyon! Wicked time on the WOD too, considering your legs and lungs got a workout from the running….D’OH! πŸ™‚

  2. I had so much fun coaching this morning, the shuttle runs were fun!

    QOD: Annie! Rich is nice to look at (that may be an understatement) but Annie is a cool chick.

    1. Thanks Gill! Great job this morning – your shuttle runs were crazy!

      And, nice seeing you this morning, Rachel!

  3. I’d rather meet Chris Spealler than either given the choice but Annie I suppose being that she’s from one of my favorite countries πŸ™‚

  4. Ok, I’ll say it just because it drives Kevin crazy…I would rather meet Carl Paoli than Rich or Annie πŸ™‚

    Cheering on the Challengers

    Wod Rx

    Happy with performance improvement compared to Wednesdays Wod.

  6. Well if we are going to add some other athletes in the mix….I would meet my crossfit crush, Azadeh.

  7. QOD: I think I’d be mesmerized by any of them… I’m not sure if I could make a good first impression… staring at Rich’s 6 pack OR staring at Annie’s 6 pack. In any of the cases, I think it would be very difficult to maintain eye contact. Yeah.. I know… it sounds weird LOL

  8. I would say Annie.. watched a documentary on her once and she seems like a cool chick! And plus I am in love with Channing Tatum.. move over Rich Froning… lol

    PS hot pic of my amazing husband!!! hehe

    After talking with Ron and Kevin… I have officially decided to register for the Blizzard beatdown in January! I am nervous-excited but that is probably a good thing and will provide some motivation to train hard(er)! Looking forward to it πŸ™‚

    Nice work 8:30 crew! Always a fun class.

    1. Great decision! Im sure you’ll enjoy the experience!

      That goes for everyone wondering as well, group events/competition are pretty amazing and you shouldnt be afraid to go for it, whatever your experience level.

    2x WU

    strength deadlift x 5
    95-135-135-135-135-135 light as a test to see how knees take it, slow build from here.

    thrusters (scale to push press)
    lunges (scale to box step ups 20″)


    1. So happy to have you back! Take it nice and slow. I don’t want you back on the “bench” any time soon.

      Nice job on the WOD. Looked like a pretty heavy push press you were doing. 95#? Actually not a bad looking duo for a future WOD…

  26. WU x 1 + foam rolling
    No strength. Did the Shuttle Run Challenge = 19. That was fun, but probably not the best idea before a bunch of thrusters…better before than after I guess.

    WOD Rx’d = 9:12

    Tuff WOD, but a good one.

  27. WU x 2

    Foam Roller Friday

    WOD Rx’d

    1. I saw you doing those kipping pullups in your warm up tonight! πŸ˜‰ Congrats! They looked strong! Great push on the WOD as well!

      1. Thanks they are starting to come together, i keep pinching my hands when I do them so I ordered the gymnastic leather grips so hopefully that will help. Should be in any day now.
