  1. Warmup
    Jerk (3) up to 95lbs. Technique needs work. Thank you for the tips and watchful eye, Amanda.

    WOD rx’d @125lbs
    Time – 9:08
    Thanks for setting the pace, Pat!

  2. WOD rxโ€™d @120lbs
    Time โ€“ 12:17 (10 sec PR!! haha)

    5lbs more on my DL ๐Ÿ™‚ some fast times this morning!!

  3. 5:05 am – getting out of bed
    5:10 am – saw the wod… mild panic in my head relating to box jumps

    6am: WU x 2
    6:15am: Strength 3 x front squats
    115-125-135-145-150… wishing I had unlimited amounts of front squats left to do before the wod…wondering if I could sub box jumps for front squats

    6:30 am… stomach twisting as I get my box ready, and my deadlift bar that was freaking heavy

    6:35am: WOD @ 60%deadlift(160 #) with 21″ box….

    time- 20:57

    At round one, I was able to contain my mild panic through the box jumps by talking to myself but at the second round that mild turned into extreme and broke down into panic mode. THANKS Amanda for being there helping me to keep it together, and doing that run with me, and Gill for counting my last box jumps, and everyone who kept cheering!

    Strength does not only measure in a physical way but mentally and emotionally as well. I’m glad I have CF to help build that strength as a whole.

    Still feeling a little frail from this morning… but my day can only go better from now on… right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You were completely awesome this morning and I felt that you pulled yourself together very quickly. I was very impressed with how you pushed through that. You are very strong physically AND mentally, you should be very proud of yourself.

    2. What you taught me Chantal – Just do it – no big deal when it’s easy; powerful stuff when it’s hard. And yeah, now you are set to conquer the rest of the day no problem. Proud of you girl ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. Whenever I see you doing strength or a WOD it’s always to the finish and quitting is never an option, you always push through and amaze. I admire your drive and determination. Today is a personal PR for you and I wish I would have been there to see the smiles.

    4. What an awesome post, Chantal! I’m so proud of you! You are incredibly strong: both mentally and physically. Truly inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

    WOD (modified) “Running/Rowing Christine”
    3 rounds:
    — 400m Run (rowed 500m for 2nd & 3rd round)
    — 12 Bodyweight Dead lifts (180#)
    — 21 Box jumps (20โ€ณ)
    TIME: 12:50

    Slowly re-introducing my knee back into the WODs is going nicely. I pushed my 400m a little harder today (chasing Shawn and trying to stay ahead of Lora is a good motivator!) and had no real (knee) issues. The bodyweight lifts were timely as I have lost over 8# since the Paleo Challenge. I must have had it to lose because I felt I had just as much if not more energy.

    Great job nooners!!

    1. Way to go Blake! Awesome time! I wish I could have had you to chase for all 3 rounds….it was great motivation trying to catch you. And congrats on the Body Weight deadlifts! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Nothing to do with today’s WOD, but the thought occurred to me, at the end of this frustrating work day – I could really use a CrossFit butt-kicking now. I’m sure it would help to work out some of those frustrations!

    Can’t wait for tomorrow (I’m probably going to regret saying that)!

    1. Oh Robyn, you are officially one of the addicted and I couldn’t be happier for you!! (And I agree that cft is a great answer to a really crappy day!!)

    2. I’ve discovered that I have to pay too much attention to what I’m doing during a WOD to be thinking about anything else!

      For an hour, nothing exists outside the 4 walls of the gym (unless we’re running, of course)! It’s great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. For me, there is no better way to relieve stress than a Crossfit butt-kicking! Seriously. I turn off my mind and just run, jump, skip, push, pull, throw around weight and sweat! Its better than any medication (and THAT is coming from a pharmacist…so there! LOL!)

    My PR is 4:07. 5# more and 2″ more on the box. I’m not even sure how it’s possible. Must have been my new socks…

    Thank you Eric for pushing me through the box jumps, and Jeff S for yelling at me to pick up the bar. And Kevin and Jo, and everyone else who didn’t let me slow down today. I can’t even tell you guys how much I appreciated the push. As always. Frig I love our gym.

    And speaking of Jo, when she tells me to do something, I know she’s not a violent person but she says it like she might kick my ass if I don’t do what she says so she’s always good for some motivation. lol
