  1. I woke up at 6am with my snow pants on, big boots on and all.. Ready to do some hardcore shoveling.
    go outside, and the tenant in the basement has the whole yard done. she loves snow apparently. lol. crazy part is, we have a snow blower that we both cant seem to start. haha. 🙂 have a good day!
    Chantal T. officialy moves to Freddy this weekend! Im gonna miss you!!!!

    1. The Corporate Relay Challenge is Saturday at 5:30 pm at the CEPS – it would be great to have another cheerleader there with me 🙂

      1. sounds good! im going out saturday night with my highschool friends from Miramichi,,, but I want to go there if i can before 🙂 cest quoi ton numero de telephone gabrielle?

    1. Is it only me but that snow was easy to shovel because of the virtual shoveling. Or was it only because it was fluffy light snow? 2nd option probably!!!!

    1. Will be there with my CF Moncton tshirt and lots of cheering energy – the more cheerleaders the merrier 🙂

  2. Jeff, Marco, John;

    Our relay team is registered now. Unfortunately I can’t make it to the practice session tomorrow evening, just to let you guys know.

    1. Jeff, and Marco
      I am in the same boat. I would have loved the coaching on technique. So I’ll just resort to tight aerodynamic clothes and hope that helps me…hahaha

  3. Chantal T… you’re moving to Freddy already???? J’pensais que c’etait seulement en Mars?? J’t’ai pas vu trop depuis que tu es de retour.. j’espere que tout va bien pis keep in touch pour sur.. we’ll miss you 🙂

    Thank you Joanna! I like that you didn’t let me give up. 🙂
    Oh and I was punished for saying ‘j’u pu capable’… 10 burpees for me. oops!

    It was fun working out with you Stephanie.

    1. No problem at all, I’ll give you that little extra push any day. I knew you could do it! Good job.

    Have to work on form, knees aren’t always bent.. I had fun working out with you as well Martine. Corrina your one strong woman 😉

    1. Thanks Steph. I struggled with the hang power snatch. I have such difficulty getting underneath the bar…pratice..practice…practice!

    Got it overhead pretty good, but little wobbly on the squat.

    1. I LOVE these kind of days. In my opinion, the best way to practice a movement is repetitiveness over a good period of time. There’s usually hardly enough time to practice anything before or after our WODs.

      Some might say there’s repetitiveness IN the WODs, but you’re going to time. Not technique. And there’s not time for coaching and feedback.

      So yes, I’d like to see more of these. Maybe not every week, but once in a while for sure.

    Started at 65# and built up to 160#.
    My old snatch pr was 155, so getting a pr from the hang means my snatch should increase. Yay!

    Great job tonight everyone. I’m happy to see so many people working on form, even if it meant sticking with a lower weight.

    I also heard feedback that people like these kind of days. What do you think? More of them?

    Matched my PR but this time was easier. Also happy i matched because i haven’t done snatches since i hurt my back.

    Was nice to see everyone tonight. Great snatches 🙂

    Kept going back and forth between 65 and up to 75 to get proper form. Was also jumping to high. Went back to the stick a few times.

    Good team work Gerry!
