26mins, urban route approx 5km. 5 mins slower than last time, which was on a track, so I think I judged it right.

With a pack of ~20lbs.

Comment #2 - Posted by: Matt G. at October 23, 2004 7:28 AM

28:13 w/no extra weight. Any weight vest recommendations?

Comment #3 - Posted by: Nemiah V. at October 23, 2004 9:01 AM

26:59. My first ever WOD. Glad to join you fine folks!

Comment #4 - Posted by: Chris Q. at October 23, 2004 9:32 AM

A couple minutes faster than last time.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Mark G. at October 23, 2004 9:41 AM

26:13 - Fighting gut distress the entire run; I really thought I was going to be visiting the weeds in the ditch along the road. Not happy with the time, but happy that I managed to complete the run without a pit stop.

Finished with pullups and clubbells (my 5 and 15# clubs arrived yesterday!):

27 kipping pullups (working on strong kip)
5x3 to order with 15# cb
3x3 pistols with 15# cb in order position
10 mills with 5# cb (trying to figure out the motion)
10 swipes with 10# cb
10 straight arm forward and backward circles with 10# cb
3x3 "contouring" the 10# cb, using three jumps - top, middle and bottom of club. One rep = one cycle of starting at the top of the club and ending back at the top of the club.

Off to work another Badger football game. Hey Lynne, one of the two night shift dispatchers quit yesterday so I'll be enjoying the 12-14 hour days you've had the pleasure of doing for so many months. Not a happy thing....

Nemiah...just my opinion, but you might wait until you're doing this a bit faster before you start adding weight.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Matt G. at October 23, 2004 10:20 AM

ran the first 2 miles at a 7:15 pace but started to overheat.
shouldn't have waited so long to get started.

30:10 still slow, but a few minutes faster than 040906. Now to do Friday's Tabata Hell.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Ambient at October 23, 2004 12:18 PM

5K - 29:45 - gotta love those steep hills pushing 60#! My quads were burning for a good part of it. Felt great to get out and run.

(Eric will do his WOD later.)

Comment #11 - Posted by: Eric 2 at October 23, 2004 12:18 PM

25:01--dumped 2:13 from the last 5k i ran when everyone else was running a 10k. think i will try it with some hills and such next time. the oval gets a little too boring.

Comment #12 - Posted by: J.J. at October 23, 2004 12:31 PM

Glad today was a run because my right shoulder is in pain from punching. I may be out of action until it heals... :(


treadmill 2% incline

first 5-10 minutes was a warmup..next time I should warm up prior..

Comment #13 - Posted by: jmon at October 23, 2004 12:35 PM

20:00 flat. My fastest time ever. I'm wondering if exertion level is increasing due to Cross-Fit training Fun


Comment #14 - Posted by: Eric at October 23, 2004 1:14 PM

19:00 flat I think this is a little slower than my last run, but I played an hours worth of basket ball before I ran so I will blaim it on that

Comment #16 - Posted by: Andy W. at October 23, 2004 2:25 PM

Did it urban, hills and trails and sidewalks and roads, about 25 minutes with my girlfriend.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Nic Nakis at October 23, 2004 3:09 PM

Well, my injuries caught up with me. Smashed toe (broken?) meant running and jump-rope were out. Raging tendonitis in left elbow makes rower a no-go. Spent 30 min working with the clubs; not much luck with the 35 due to the elbow, but linear moves with the 10s were ok. Rotational moves not good.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Lynne Pitts at October 23, 2004 3:31 PM

Lynne - what happened?

Comment #19 - Posted by: kelly moore at October 23, 2004 3:39 PM


my lower back really stiffens up after about 3k ... every time ... very unpleasant.

Comment #20 - Posted by: larry at October 23, 2004 4:02 PM

3 miles in 35:17. Can you say snails pace? Hey I did it without stopping which is progress for me.

Comment #21 - Posted by: John Walsh at October 23, 2004 4:17 PM


I ran the first mile in 7 min, second mile in 8 min, remainder in 9:25. Felt pretty good afterwards, considering I had laid off the running for about two weeks due to a cold.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Scott Arnold at October 23, 2004 4:40 PM

I always find it interesting how the number of comments drops off when we have a pure aerobic workout. Look back over the last week...the number of comments ranges around 70-100. Today...what're we looking at, maybe mid-30s?

Comment #24 - Posted by: Matt G. at October 23, 2004 4:41 PM

Matt G- Good observation. I think one factor in this phenomenon is the amount of lower body injuries circulating the crew these days.

And a lot of folks really hate running.

I'll give this one a shot tomorrow, promise.


Comment #25 - Posted by: Dan S. at October 23, 2004 5:27 PM

I agree with Dan S. Legs never recoverd from the deadlifts a few days ago then the TGU's. Did buy new running shoes today, so tomorrow is the day.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Steve S at October 23, 2004 5:42 PM

C2 5K
18:57 Crossed the 2500m mark on pace for 18:50
Not my fastest 5K, but certainly felt the stongest... ramped my final kick from 1200m out - from a 1:56/500m pace to 1:49/500m. I have definately felt the benefits of this past month of WODs; with the 800m work-outs and other exercises that specifically addressed my weak points. My thanks to Coach for the grueling past few weeks!

Comment #27 - Posted by: jdg at October 23, 2004 5:43 PM

We just received our C2 rower! it was raining out,did;nt want to run with a new toy in the house so we did a 5k on it to set a base line.

21:46 Jim
29:33 Tommie

Comment #28 - Posted by: Jim Howe at October 23, 2004 6:04 PM

Don't worry Matt, Connor and I will tackle this tomorrow. Today's work:
3 rounds
21 knees to elbows
21 front squats X 75#
800 M
21 kettlebell swings 50#
3 25 foot rope climbs
Ran a Krav Maga test today. 5 1/2 hours. Amazing how the people who have been doing CF did on the test.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Jeff at October 23, 2004 6:22 PM

Matt, DUH!! ;)
Somebody send me the "Snail's Pace" award.
But, I went almost non-stop. For me, that's unheard of. Walked .12 in the middle, ran 5.5-6.0 on the hamstermill at 1.0. Wanted to run this at home, but the kids didn't want go fast enough!
Thank God it was a 5K!!!

Comment #30 - Posted by: Ron N. at October 23, 2004 6:24 PM

Just saw John's post. Don't want to puor salt on a fellow snail! Looks like we have the same approach to the 5K. Slow and steady wins the race (against ourselves!).

Comment #31 - Posted by: Ron N. at October 23, 2004 6:26 PM

Jeff, I hear you on the Krav tests. Last one I took, my instructor told me beforehand that his goal was to make me hurl. I laughed at him and told him that the rest of the class would be dead before I puked.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Matt G. at October 23, 2004 6:33 PM

Went to the local high school to run this (we live in a hilly area and I wanted to get a benchmark time), but it was homecoming and the track was unavailable. Referencing Matt's comment, we hate running, but were determined to make today our first 5K. But it still didn't happen. We went to the gym and I did the "Bear" instead. It was my first time with it, and the version I did was power clean, front squat, push press, back squat, push press. I intended for 5 sets of 7 so I started "light" at 95lbs. Oops.

95lbs x 3,4
65lbs x 7
75lbs x 7
75lbs x 7
85lbs x 7

This is my new favorite workout. My students will be meeting the bear on Tuesday morning.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Tony B. at October 23, 2004 6:38 PM

just under 31min

I think I could have gone faster; the flesh was willing, but the spirit was weak...

Comment #34 - Posted by: Travis Mulroy at October 23, 2004 7:06 PM

A little PR for me this evening...a single one arm/one leg pushup per arm (yes, even with my left side) during a short break at work. What an incredible core workout - darn near blew my obliques out doing them, but I finally did it!

Comment #35 - Posted by: kelly moore at October 23, 2004 7:59 PM

It was raining this evening so I rowed 5K instead. 25:43

Comment #36 - Posted by: beth at October 23, 2004 8:10 PM

Enjoy running much more than deadlifts.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Ethan at October 23, 2004 8:12 PM

21:50 on a treadmill, no incline
hard run for me

Comment #38 - Posted by: Rene' at October 23, 2004 8:24 PM

18:35 on a treadmill

Comment #39 - Posted by: Todd H at October 23, 2004 8:35 PM


1:29 faster than last time. I didn't get to do many of the recent WODs involving running, on those, I had to sub jump rope or Coach Davies style calithentics complexes in place due to darkness. Perhaps I'd have done better if I'd run more recently. Distance runs still seem grueling to me...

One hour later at home did 20 min of gymnastic strength work-
Wall presses
tuck planches
half tucked/half extended front levers
tuck back levers
full body rows
wide grip ring dips
dragon flags
elbow levers

Comment #40 - Posted by: Scott at October 23, 2004 9:39 PM

Jeff @ Brand X gave us a beaut today:

3 rounds for time of:
21 knees to elbows
21 front squats (55# - I used 25)
800 meter run
21 45# kettlebell swings (10, 20,20 for me)
3 rope climbs (I did rope pulls)

It took me 46 minutes for this one!

Comment #41 - Posted by: Laurar at October 23, 2004 9:46 PM

Did the Turkish Getup WOD today due to track unavailability and Tony B's unwillingness to run off a track (something about a benchmark) - and it's true i hate the long runs but we're determined, so... tomorrow, track or no track.

TGU WOD about 30 min. used a 30# bar for the first two rounds then switched to the 15# bar.

Comment #42 - Posted by: Nicole at October 23, 2004 11:16 PM

I was looking forward to this one- I'm a stronger runner than lifter.
However, it rained all day in my neck of the woods. So I substituted the 5k w/a cardio machine(eliptical) workout for 30 minutes. I went as fast as possible at a steady rate for the first 20 minutes than did intervals(fast/slow) for the remaining 10.
Not the same as a run but I did work up good sweat and fwiw-the intervals were intense.
Looking forward to the next run- not looking forward to those snatches tomorrow 041024.

Comment #44 - Posted by: Lance at October 24, 2004 6:51 AM

Ran this yesterday, but didn't get a chance to post. High winds with some hills made things interesting and fun. I'm starting to get back to paces I had before the surgery. Time was 23:51.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Ryan Atkins at October 24, 2004 7:01 AM

Ran on indoor track with 1/8 mile laps. Round and round we go!
me - 28:07
wife - 25:04

Comment #46 - Posted by: Steve S at October 24, 2004 9:52 AM

2 mile run (was hurting today) 16:34

Comment #47 - Posted by: murph at October 24, 2004 11:22 AM

Treadmill with couple of degree incline. 3.2 miles in 24:50.


Comment #48 - Posted by: Dan S. at October 24, 2004 2:54 PM

between 2.5-3miles

Comment #49 - Posted by: Shelly at October 24, 2004 5:07 PM

3K 22:30 started at a 7:03 pace but had to slow to about 8:00 around 2 miles. I think this is a new P.R.

Comment #50 - Posted by: phil at October 24, 2004 5:44 PM

23:35 and thought i was going to die.

Comment #51 - Posted by: T. Rain at October 24, 2004 7:36 PM

28:10 5K
Running is definitely not my strong point. I was huffing and puffing the whole way....

Comment #52 - Posted by: Joe at October 24, 2004 8:33 PM

29:09 with a decent kick.

Comment #53 - Posted by: kevin o at October 25, 2004 4:45 AM

5K in 22:18. OK run did not feel great. Faster than last one by 5 seconds.

Comment #54 - Posted by: Jonathan B. at October 25, 2004 6:36 AM

Finally ran this one. Very hilly course, just under 5K in 24 minutes. There is one incline about .75 mile that finishes very steep right in the middle of the run. Nicole and I were both walking at the top. Still, we finished with a decent time. Direct evidence of the efficacy of CrossFit. This is our first long run since we started CrossFit in June.

Comment #55 - Posted by: Tony B. at October 25, 2004 10:18 AM

Almost did not complete this WOD as rx'ed because my calf was feekling tight but with some stretching and warm-up it loosened up. I went out at a comfortable pace with the aim of finishing in 26:33. I was able to muster a kick in the final 400M to arrive in at 25:56. Last month I had a DNF due to a lack of mental toughness. My aim is to get 23:30 now.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Tom Schneitter at October 25, 2004 11:13 AM

~33 min.
Very stiff & sore following yesterday's tabata WOD. Nice mental challenge for a non-runner.

Comment #57 - Posted by: Alex M. at October 25, 2004 12:41 PM

I did a run up on a mountain (10,800ft). It's a trail about 3 3/4 miles for warm up. Then there are 36 stairs. I go with friends and we do sprints on the stairs. 7 sets of 7 sprints (up and down=1). Then another 3/4 up the side of the mountain and done for a total time about 1.75 hours. I do that every Sunday. So I'm going to start counting it for my 5K run days.

Comment #58 - Posted by: ChemGirl at October 25, 2004 2:57 PM

Ran this with Tony B. on a hilly course near our house. About 24:00 min. Hats off to Tony - he blew by me on the last 100 meters and finished first!

Comment #59 - Posted by: Nicole at October 25, 2004 6:20 PM


Almost 1 minute faster than last time, but a few minutes short of my best. Quickest on my current course, however.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Pat at October 27, 2004 2:26 AM

4.29 flat kilometers around the Plains
1st 1.43 kmó8:24
2nd 1.43 kmó8:11
3rd 1.43 km---7:38
Time= 24:13

Paced myself. Good fun workout in the morning hours. I'm surprised to see so many joggers out at 6:45 at 7 degrees Celcius.

Comment #61 - Posted by: Paul Theodorescu at October 27, 2004 4:36 AM


Quite sore from yesterday's tabata hell. Not to disapointed as I have never been a runner.
