  7. I found it odd that I wasn’t really sore after my vacation, but it has caught up to me. Either that, or I was run over by a truck. I’m taking today and tomorrow off. Maybe Friday too. lol

    It was a lot of fun in the first round or two, and then it got really hard.

    1. I’ll take the bet too! I bet we’ll see double unders. If we’re both wrong, we’ll both do burpees on Sat after WOD 12.3… If you are wrong, I guess you owe Darsey 25 burpees + 25 for me…
      Anybody else want to take that bet?

  9. Oh wow! This is my first ever crossfit pic 🙂 90 snatches in 10 mins… Guess not too bad for my first class right in the games! Many thanks to my judge Heather for the support 🙂

    1. At first I thought you meant “during the 30-break in the WOD you did” … and that would just not be right…

    WU x 2

    152 double under’s in a row.

    15 minutes: 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off. Tried the ring inverts, but the feeling of being upside down almost made me shit in my pants so I opted for the toes to rings.

    Total :144. I have a big ass rip on my left hand after this WOD which made me wish I had done sit ups instead!

    75 minutes of hot yoga. The salty sweat felt really great on the rip on my left hand!

    Great day to be alive!

    1. Holy Crap….very nice, active day Corinna!! Sucks for the rip 🙁 ….especially with that T2B in 12.3!!
      You are inspirational for the DU’s….sweet!!

    Total: 254

    Just saw 12.3 – looks like the fun is over – Box jumps a big no go right now so I guess I can kiss my ranking good bye 🙁

      1. I was thinking the same, just do one to stay on the board….lots did that on the burpees. And see what the next WODs bring,

  27. Just finished 12.3. Gah!

    8 rounds + 2 Box Jumps

    Gassed, throat dry, shoulders burned out, dizzy.

    Sounds like a typical WOD.

    Thanks to all the judges who came out tonight.

  28. WOD 12.3

    7 Rounds + 6 box jumps

    Thanks again for all who came to judge/keep time/cheer, much appreciated. As for the WOD…I’m just glad its over….finally. That 18 mins felt like MUCH longer……and that’s what she wished she’d said.

  29. 12.3 -> 7 rounds and 14 BJ thanks to everyone who came out to cheer or judge. Thanks Gabe for being an awesome judge.

    1. Nice!!
      Again really sorry about your pre-WOD clean up, not the most motivating 🙁 ….thanks again for your help, really appreciated!! Wish we could have stayed to cheer….

  30. Came in late, shhhhhhhhh
    WU x 1
    No strength today
    WOD: Monkey business
    15 minutes of:
    30 sec ring inverts / or scale toes to rings
    30 sec rest

    Strength = Deadlifts x1

    WOD: Monkey Business
    15 minutes
    30secs on ring inverts
    30 secs rest
    Total 106 (RX)

    Hard on the grip the last few rounds!
    Great work 6:30 crew!


    WOD 12.3

    5 rounds + 15 BJs + 6 Push presses —– Not sure if it was 5-6-or 7 push presses

    Well, my 2 cents/advice for this WOD is PACE!!! Just go through the motions and get through the first 5-10 minutes not allowing yourself to get overIy out-of-breathe !! I was Not sure why I came out the gates guns a blazing but that is why I like doing these wods a few times… I can improve on this!! The Press weight of 115# is a bit outta my comfort zone THOUGH I was able to do the 1st 12 unbroken – I then did Push jerks which way better….Truly after that I cannot even remember much except for Rob and the others cheering me on and me talking to myself in my head saying “give up”! Anyway, I will do better than this next time – I just hope my PACING strategy works 🙂

    Good night peeps!
