    1. Hope your back feels better soon. Good for you, listening to your body and stopping after 3 rounds. Sometimes that is easier said than done.

  4. Yes, Uncle Patrick…Hell has frozen over 😀

    Outside of Saturday’s, this was my first morning WOD. And…I survived!

    WU x 2 (sub ring rows for pullups because of sore shoulder)

    1. I just got home from work….I wish I could have tried this one. I am sure I would have gotten 397 (minus a couple of hundred). Great job Lora.

    2. Good Work this morning Lora! Just getting up early for a WOD is crazy in itself, not to mention the high bar you set for the rest of the CFM crew today! Great work!

  5. Warmup with handstand pushups (abmat) Thanks Heidi for being a positive influence. Seeing you push 10 out…pushed me. 🙂

    Just wanted to thank everyone who has cheered me on this last summer. Its been great! You’ve helped me to push myself to do things I never thought possible. I could only have dreamed that by the end of the summer I would have been able to do unassisted pull ups. I also never thought that I would have done one, let alone two wods this summer RX’d.

    All in all im going to miss everyone at the gym and doing wods at school just won’t be the same :(! Today was a great way to end the summer with this last day of Rx and first times.

    And for all the born hockey players who don’t train with crossfit in the summer- all the cool kids do it ;P

    Thanks again see everyone at Thanksgiving!

    1. You’re a great athlete, Julia! Great summer working out with you, and great job on your pullups! See you at Thanksgiving!

    2. I did not realize that today was your last day with us for a while. I am sad that I did not get a chance to say good luck in person. It has been wonderful having you train with us Julia. See you at Thanksgiving!

    3. Great job today Julia, and all summer it was fun to work out with you! have fun at school and see you in the fall..

    4. We’ll miss you Julia!! It has been a pleasure to workout with you and I am glad I was there to see your firsts pull ups withouth band so proud of you!! Enjoy University 🙂

    5. So glad to have you as part of the CFM family. You’re dedication is paying off! Best of luck in school and see you over the holidays.

    6. You just seem to keep getting better Jul, it looks like I’m going to have to train hard so you don’t leave me in the dust when you get back. 🙂 Have fun while you’re away, not to much though, passing is important as well.

    7. What fun it’s been to have a CFT buddy to travel with, laugh with, and harass! Couldn’t be prouder of all your progress and sure will miss you – but now I have a chance to fix my clean form and catch up with you!!

    8. It has been great having you at the gym this summer, Julia 🙂 Congrats on reaching your milestone of unassisted pullups, and on those Rx’d WODs you now have under your belt! Keep training. Study hard. Oh, and have fun too! See you at Thanksgiving 🙂

    9. Congrats Julia on the awesome achievements! I am certain you will push yourself as hard at school as you do in the CFM gym!

    Woahhh this was a great WOD !!! I think I found the right rythme for this one 🙂 I didn’t take breaks (except the 1 minute rest) and it felt pretty good !!! I had a BAD toe cramp afterward but I’ll survive hehe Good job everybody 😀

    1. Good job Chantal 🙂
      I, too, was VERY aware of my squat “style” today while I was doing this WOD. I laughed a little to myself every time I got to the squats….

    2x WU

    foam roll and practice cleans.. also stretch out tight shoulder (maybe a few too many MU in the last week or so try to reel in JO? lol)

    The Chief

    final total was 389 but Kevin said the depth of my squats was questionable (knees have been very stiff and sore so limited range of motion 🙁 ) to be fair and to still have a number to look back on the next time we do this, I removed the squat portion of the equation and came up with 314! know that is a bit drastic as some of them were probably good, Kev said 4/5 Rx! lol.. but happy with this number and now room to improve! hopefully the next time I see the Chief I’ll have some better stilts under me and I’ll have an easy time making a PR out of this one!

    great job 6:45 class!

    1. Great work Jeff! Hope your knee stiffness and problems with range of motion will soon be a thing of the past!

    2. Awesome work Jeff. That is a great score. I know the knees have been acting up lately, but you aren’t letting that keep you from working out and giving it your best. 🙂

    3. I can tell ur knees are bothering you…and coming from the “gimp” club myself, I can appreciate ur pain!!! LOL but u don’t let it stop u and that’s awesome to watch!!! 🙂

    PR of 108 reps and 60#
    It looks like a lot but first time doing this wod was in my first week of crossfit.Happy to do it Rx.
    Nice to see what a year of dedication can do.

  22. What a freaking day I had is all I can say!

    My morning started at my car dealership at 7:30 a.m. whereby I was told that mice may have possibly damaged wires near my left front headlights. Rodent damage is not a warranty problem therefore, I am looking at a potential 2000$ bill. I thought it was an April fools joke! I mean really; I have never in my life heard of mice climbing underneath a vehicle and eating wires?????

    Secondly, I went to my doctor to get tests results from a kidney scan done way back in June and he tells me that the results were MIA!

    Thirdly, I rush to pick up my dogs at Four Paws after work and I step in dog poop with the sneakers I was about to wear to Cross Fit. Let’s say the smell on the way home in the car was quite unpleasant!

    So when I finally get to Cross Fit and see that Marie had done 444 reps I almost shit in my pants, but after the day I had, I have to thank you Marie and Lora for motivating me to work my butt off!

    WOD ” The Chief” Rx @ 95 lbs

    Total reps: 433

    I did this WOD in June and my score was 380 (53 rep PR)

    1. awesome job Corinna, and I’ll wager even without the ‘bad’ day you would have still had a GO at this one!! lol..

    2. “….see that Marie had done 444 reps I almost shit in my pants” – LOL!!!
      Nice score Corinna..surely that cancels out the bad day?

    3. Is it wrong of me to laugh all the way through your awful day!?! So glad the wod went well and THANKS for not wearing those sneakers beside me!!

    4. WAY TO GO!!! Super way to end what started as a “crappy” day (pun intended!).
      That is an incredible PR!

    5. See Corinna, not a bad day after all!!! Sorry I couldn’t stay to encourage you until the end. WOW what an awesome PR!!! You’re a machine! Great work out there tonight!

    6. OMG! I am still laughing just thinking about your shitty day!! I have been there many times!! I feel your pain!! Awesome score!!!! I could tell you almost pooped your pants when you saw her amazing score!! LOL you friggin did amazing at this WOD…I could see you at the corner of my eye and I was trying to keep up with you on the squats and couldn’t even come close…I need to learn how to do “strangler”!!! Maybe you could teach me on Sunday!!! 😉 awesome job today!!!

  23. Great time tonight. After Jeff Kicked me out of my seat in the peanut gallery twice and Christine moved my foot and made me trip a small child… the wod was fun.
