    “What is essientially more Crossfit than pull-ups and thrusters?” – Pat Sherwood

      1. OMG…that’s friggin awesome!! LOL.

        Do you still have your “guests not appearing on stage gifts (The morgan mint collection)??

  3. Warmup
    Foam rolled, foam rolled and more foam rolling.

    First time wearing my Oly shoes. Wow. Felt great. I was even able to do a pistol. Whoop.
    Was thinking this WOD would be easier than Fran, then I remembered that there are still 45 thrusters….

    Awesome workout!

  6. QOD – We rarely watch TV, but when we do, I want to laugh.
    Favourite silly shows: Arrested Development, Friends, and How I Met Your Mother

  7. QOD: TV? People still has time for that ? All joking aside – I don’t watch alot of TV but when I do I mostly pick something to watch on Netflix – movie or documentary – Anyone watched Hungry for change ? It’s a great documentary that wilmotivate you through the Paleo challenge. Funny part is my parents got me to watch it after 2 years of me telling them how most food they ate was crap and they didn’t believe me = best x-mas present ever πŸ™‚

    Face off with Mario was fun and intense! Could feel him breathing down my neck the entire time.. Helped push me. Glad I decided to lower the weight down 10#. Still recovering from Victoria πŸ™‚

    Great job nooners!!!!

    1. During WOD (in my head, round 3-4):

      “Damnit he’s still 4 reps ahead, what do I need to do to catch that him?!?!”

      Nice work bro!

  11. Really enjoyed the Friday Nooner time slot!

    WOD @ 45# with blue band for Pullups : 7:44

    Way to go nooners!!

  12. QOD: Big Bang Theory hands down. I think I’m addicted – I keep watching the same episodes over and over. The university faculty jokes are soooo much like real life!

  13. QOD: The Office, Survivor, and Biggest Loser. Thankfully Survivor and BL are only seasonal, I wouldn’t have time to watch if they were on every week.

    I set the bar down on my 3rd set of thrusters at 1:51 then it went down hill. I was winded or maybe i gave up a little. But the last 2 rounds the thrusters felt very hard…
