Lt Col Michael Hamilton passed away suddenly 23 September from a heart attack. Michael was a friend and mentor to all CrossFitters; he will be dearly missed. His friends will keep his dream alive by someday opening a CrossFit gym in Simi Valley, CA in his honor. Fair winds, Michael.

God bless him and his family. Thank you for your service Sir.
our prayers and thoughts are with you tonight michael.
You may have read about Mike's tragic death on the message board. Our San Antonio CrossFit group had recently linked up with Mike who was in town taking care of his ailing father. Mike had worked out with us on the day of his death and was going to share Oly lifting skills with us the following Saturday. What a shocking loss.
Let us know about the plans for the gym in his honor in Simi Valley. I'm sure Albert, Ken, and Gary will chime in with their thoughts here, too.
We thank Mike for his service to our nation and to the CF community. Our thoughts and prayers are especially with his children and his aged father.
Brendan stated it well.
I knew Mike for a very short time. Nevertheless, his sudden death has deeply saddened me and left me confused. Here was a guy in special forces, avid CrossFitter, i.e. doing everything right and he should die of a heart attack at only 49 years old. It seems so wrong.
I am especially saddened for his 83 y.o. father, who must have been glad to have him home and now must be devated by this loss.
I want to thank CrossFit for posting a great picture of Mike at his best
My and my family's thoughts are with Michael and our prayers of healing are for his family and friends.
praying for the family. peace and aloha, Mike.
All my love to his loved ones. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I understand this kind of loss and my prayers and thoughts are with all those who mourn this young mans passing,god be with you.
God speed to you Mike. I just got to San Antonio and I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you. I'll be doing some of those prayers of healing for your family.
Brendan, Ken and everyone else, I am so sorry for your loss. The body may die but the soul lives on forever.
God's Speed Warrior. And to Mike's family and friends, I am sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Deepest sympathies and condolences for the family and friends of LtCol Hamilton.
Be happy in the company of God. You will be remembered by our community.
I took a few day's of rest.
Started today with:
3 rounds/time of:
- 5x self assisted muscle-ups
- 5x hspu
- 5x slow swing L-sit/tucked planche
- 5x 3 balls juggling (continu counting only my right hand)
- 5x LR 1 leg squat
- 400 mtr run
total time: 16:02 min
Nice balance of strenght, coordination and technique!!
Have fun, Johan
There is no track or measurable distance around my home. I ran my 800's on a treadmill. Managed approx. 4:00 for each which seemed like 100 mph.
Thank you for your service LTC Michael Hamilton.

3:13 (don't remember 6:30?)
Treadmill @ 1.5% grade
Unfortunately I still am dealing with a major gash to my left heel. It is very painful to run on it so I was favoring that leg. Hard to get into a rhythm when you are tip-toeing on your left and coming down hard on your right. The cut is getting better but will probably be another 2 weeks before it is totally healed.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Michael's family and friends.
wu: 5 rounds reverse cindy 15 squats,10 pushups,5 pullups
last time all at 8.0 on treadmill time 3:45
this time (no incline)
RIP LTC. Hamilton and condolences to your family.
opened at 2:30 pace on the treadmill and couldn't hold it - bailed at about 2 minutes because I was nauseous.
The overhead squat is the bane of my existence. I felt OK with everything else but never felt comfortable with the 95 overhead. I did a weak and wobbly overhead "squat" that was just plain ugly. I will work on it coach. I have to say however I a proud of what I can do compared to when I started so again thanks. No one else in my group even tried it. My boxing coach created his own version of pukies revenge and went at it so props to him.
P.s. I figured out why yesterday's workout was so over the top. All 3 coaches in yesterday’s picture picked a WOD and combined it for the day. That was my hardest one yet.

Disheartening to hear of the sudden death of LTC Hamilton, especially when he was in such good condition.
RIP LTCOL Hamilton
wod: 2:58, 5:47 rest, 2:59, 6:40 rest, 3:02
much better than previous effort, still amazed at how some people can run that pace for 26 miles (even if they are fringe athletes!)
Urban Jungle/equipment failure style. First time doing this. Should be able to hit 3:00 next time with proper set-up.
on a treadmill:
first one was about 20" faster than my previous best - tough, but I think I could get under 2:30 on a track
Age 29 Bwt 200
00+05 rest between sets / run on the street
3+28 / 3+10 (PR by 11 seconds!)/ 3+11
Semper Fi. So few give so much.
Running that much in 110 degree heat today didn't really please our tenderfoot attitudes today so we opted for:
100 bodyweight air squats
50 squat thrusts (inadvertently did 100 but that's okay since I forgot to do the 4th and final 400m).
1:00+ (hey, it was a little warm!)
My thighs are sore, don't know if it's from today or yesterday's overhead squats...I think we've discovered a couple of muscles in certain areas we didn't know existed.
First time doing this. I used to run but my IT band got messed up and I'm not even supposed to be doing anything related to running. Are my times bad?
CF probably knows this, but this helps me determine running distances:
Sympathies to the family LTCOL Hamilton.
1. 3:47, 2 min rest
2. 3:54, 2 min rest
Nothing to compare it to, since on 060922 I did 400s. I'm slow...chicken legs, barrel chest, and I HATE to run (all those formation runs ruined me!).
May God watch over Michael's family at this time of need. Rest easy sir.
4:39 (4 min rest) 4:55 (5 min rest) 5:41
4:39 is a personal best for me at this distance. My times improved for each round over last time (by :18, :03 and :24). I feel pretty good about this one, but I definitely tend to wear myself out on the first 2 rounds. I have to very much pace myself on the third just to be able to get through it.

I an uncomfrotable with speed work on a treadmill I always feel like I am close to out of control. In my business we say if you are comfortable you aren't growing so I guess I need to suck it up.

My condolences to the friends and family.

Got to say, I only made it through a little more than 1/2 of the WOD on Wednesday. I had to scale the weight down but by the end of the 2nd round, I was toast. I look forward for it to come around again so I can give it another try.

Tim: 3:22, 3:44, 3:47
I felt like I was plodding on the last two splits -- I'd love to get my time under 3:00. Did 5 muscle-ups without dropping between splits 1&2, then did GHD sit-ups and 20# medicine ball hypers between splits 2&3. This probably did not help my times on those splits.
My inside left knee has a shooting pain at the lower attachment of what might be my tibialis. Any folk remedies for this? I've been sprinting in flat shoes with a forefoot strike lately.
A Crossfit gym in Simi Valley would be a wonderful memorial for Michael. I think opening one in his honor in San Antonio would also be a worthy goal.

yuk. Tried this on a treadmill today because there Julie thought the HS football team would be using the field tonight. Even on the third attempt my pace was still too slow.
3:44, 3:13, 3:05
SB'D 1000 meter rows for the runs..
Wow that felt good!!!
An article in this month's CrossFit Journal suggests that weightlifting shoes are a worthwhile investment. Any views on the Adidas adiStar shoes? Any other recommendations (i.e., shoe type or brand, where to buy online, etc.)? Any feedback would be much appreciated!
On another note, I am relatively new to CrossFit and am really sold on it. It has really reinvigorated my workouts and improved my overall fitness, not to mention my personal mind-set. Many thanks!
3:08 (appox 4min rest between runs)
Waaaay harder than last time on the treadmill. I'd be interested to see how I'd do on a track as opposed to the rutted trench of OPT's driveway on the way out and in, plus the hill, wind and aphids in my eyes that I experienced today.
New to Crossfit. Lots of fun so far.

Jogged 1/2 mile to warmup, alternated jogging and sprinting the final mile home.
Did the WOD after spending 3 1/2 hours scrubbing the 20 year growth of mold off a wood deck on my hands and knees....right shoulder, elbow and wrist did not enjoy the ordeal.
Age - 47

How weird is this? 3:13, 3:14, 3:14
All near-max effort.
A far cry from the sub 2 min halfs I used to run in HS!
3:06, 3:16, 3:19 - the wind was a killer on the track, 2:1 rest to work
OK - after looking at everybody else's times, I guess being consistent isn't all that weird. Never mind.
WOD (:02 rest between)
Don't think I was totaly warmed up yet until after the first run. Back started tightning up, maybe it's time to start stretching. Smoked on the 3rd. Times were slower then last time, except for the 2nd rd.
Get some, Go again!
Mike's passing affected me today when I read this wod at 5:00 AM. Two reasons - (1) every CF'r I've met so far is passionate, kind and generous. It sucks to lose a member of this community. And, (2)at age 43, I'm wondering selfishly, "how did this happen to a guy doing everything right?"
I believe that passion for fitness is derived in large part to a commitment to longevity. Thus, Micheal's passing is a tragic anomaly.
I am very sad for his family. My sincere condolences.
Finally, I decided to be inspired instead, as I think Michael or any CF'r would want. After a week of rest, I came back with "Mary" today and set a new PR: 18. Cheers, LTC Michael Hamilton!
My second day of CF! OOhRAH!
I am sore but feeling great!

3:09 brief stop off treadmill
Need to figure this one, not great pacing!
I've been xfitting for about a good 6 months, and I must say yesterdays workout was a whole lot of hell, although I didn't get a lot of sleep the night before, my well rested workout partner who is also an avid xfitter said the workout was mighty mean on him also, great job coach.

WU 1/2 mi walk on treadmill
4 ish (forgot to hit the button)
ran outside this time, 15 sec slower on average, but I don't feel like I'm going to be flung into the wall behind the treadmill either.
55 y.o. 152lb 5'10"
Ran this on a treadmill with a 1% incline. Wanted to do this on a track, but it was 90 degrees here (San Antonio) and humid. I did 880 on the treadmill. Would have liked to have gone faster, but it peaks out at 10 mph. It takes 20 secs to get the treadmill from stop to max speed, so I have to keep the thing running, (at 7.5mph)and then note where the odometer is when I start my Timex watch timer. It's all a bit much. It's hard to translate the time I did on a treadmill to a track. Hopefully by November it will have cooled down here and I can move outside.
2:54 2:56 2:56. 3 min. rest between rounds. Godspeed, Michael, and a hearty Semper Fi...

Deepest sympathies for Mike's family and friends. RIP
My hammies are smoked from the 99 lunge steps I did yesterday. Was gonna do this before work but ran out of time. So I jogged .75 mile, ate lunch and jogged .75 mile back. Left my timer at home. I'm trying to stop working out at 1 AM so I'm just glad I got my own personalized version of this done before sunset.
ran outside - perfect weather
here's praying that all has been revealed to you
and that your family and friends find peace in your passing
I did 8 x 30 yd sprints in deep sand at Pismo today
first sprinting since taking up Olympic Lifting full time 2 months ago
for me, at least, in other words for a 41 year old slightly overweight guy, I was smoking fast
tail wind didnt hurt
yesterday i hit my head on our ceiling jumping and showing off for my kids
I haven't had such dramatic improvement since the gains I had when I started Crossfit almost a year ago

Two laps around the UPenn track
gaucoin, you're getting 1 peach and some leftover mission hill grapes
On treadmill. Last one felt very tough. 3 minutes walking between. I'm sure I would be slower on a track.
Todays run felt good, very smooth and form held up well. Probably due to barefoot hill sprints and barefoot running for the past couple of weeks.
First lap is slower than last time, but total time is 8 seconds faster. Not a huge difference, but the better feeling in form alone made me happy.
Craig H post #117: I'm so with you on this Mike Hamilton question. At 42 yo myself, I'm wondering how vulnerable am I? I'm doing a lot of the right things, but do I need to be doing more (diet especially)? Maybe this is just an annomoly. But you are right on target with point (1)...the CF folks are indeed an incredibily community!
Like Ken post #135, it was still HOT this afternoon in San Antonio. I went to my kids' Middle School track and did the WOD...
I'm slow compared to my High School track days (and now at 6' and 192#), but I'm consistant! Did 800 warm up, and 800 jog between each, and and 800 jog afterwards.
Thanks Coach and God Bless Mike Hamilton.
OPT...you're a freak of nature.
Get some, go again.
I am far more used to 400mtr sprints.
First WOD for me. Took it easy and only did two.
4 minutes between sets.
Did with my dog Jake on a golf course. He did it carrying a six foot branch.
Sorry to hear about LTC Hamilton. My thoughts are with his family.
10 min ellip wu 15/15. wod= 3:39 at 8.5mph, 3:35 @ 8.7mph, 3:26 @ 9.2mph. felt i could have run faster but not comfortable pushing treadmill speed up too much. will next time. hr avg 117, hr max 177.
3 min rest between rounds. A couple seconds slower each round from last time.
30 yo weight down to 189! (6-2")
Rd 1 = 3:43
Rest = 3-5 minutes
Rd 2 = 3:43 (Started off on a better pace only to have to walk half of one of the track corners)
Rest = 3-5 minutes
Rd 3 = 4:02 (slower start off pace with a sprint the last 1/16th mile)
Had some head wind on the back stretch that was definitely noticeable.
Sub 1000 meter row
first @ 5 setting: 3:50
second @ 5 setting: 3:49
third @ 6 setting: 3:51
Took advice of most recent CF Journal and changed resistance from usual 4. Improved time by 14-15 seconds. Felt like I was cheating a bit, but I'll take it. What are others' experience with finding optimum resistance level?
Krista, #69, nice job on 3:39 for 1000 meters!
WOD as rxd,1-3:56)2-3:54)3-3:57.rain had me running inside around the basketball court.But at least I stayed dry.
Runs done at high school track. A little sore from running a 5k the night before. Marginally faster than last time. Goal is set: sub 3min 800's... soon.
no third round, starting slow.
May God bless Michael's family.
Ran a mile afterward (9:23; 4:34 first 800m and 4:49 second 800m) to get more practice with Pose running.
Sorry for the loss of your friend,
Sold out on the first one, lost it on the second, tried to bring it in on the last. Compare to 3:29/3:26/3:26 last time, so better...might need to start putting in more 800 work, as it is such a killer distance.
Michael, thank you for giving so much of much of yourself and your contribution to the lives of your family, freinds, and so many crossfitters. Rest in peace.
I'm a day behind so I was going yo do the double split with yesterdays wo am and todays pm. Not such a good idea. Did yesterdays as rx'd in 37.58.... toughest wo yet since 1st cf wo a week ago with Linda. Would have only been going through the motions if I'd have tried the sprints today. I'll double up on another day or skip next rest day.
Forgot...this time at the HS track (last time on street) and a bit windy.

3:18/rest 6 min./3:30/rest 4 min/3:23
I suck at running, but it's damn good for me!
Unable to run for effort due to a hamstring pull from last time I did this. So, I ran trying to keep a cosistent stride at about 80% effort without a finishing kick.
880 yds 3:13/3:19/3:13
One effort and two jogs. 3 min rest.
My most sincere condolences to Micheal's family and to all who know him - I'm sure this tragic loss will always be felt, yet all will rise stronger and better for knowing him.
I lost my brother Daniel a couple years ago at age 37 unexpectedly from a dissected aorta and it is still difficult to accept that he is gone. Sometimes I wonder, at age 38, if I am pushing the envelope with this CF stuff...
I guess it speaks to fragility of all of us - we never know what the day might bring. We owe it to those who love us and to ourselves to take the day head-on and live it fully.
Sounds like Micheal did just that.

first time on doing this WOD. Ran the block around my house (exactly 1/2 mi)
First time doing this type of work in some time. Did take the interval approach instead of running it as repeats (kept my rest to about the same ratio of the run).
had 2 minutes of rest between runs
5000 meter row at 45 rpm
25 knees to elbow
25lb weighted sit ups, 25 reps
After this WOD we have a new found respect for the rowing machine.

Paced 400m on a road track. Not a flat course and the turn around at 400m sucked. Definitely will do this on a track next time.
4 minute breaks
Ran outside so it was a rough 800m estimate
Left shin was numb after the 2nd round, still adjusting to sole-less Nike Free 5.0s so rowed instead. 3 minute breaks.
Ran outside in the neighborhood. Probably closer to 900m. Calves were pretty tight from du's last night.
Forgot to write down times but all were in 3:30 to 3:45 range. Its fun to run hard once in a while.

Blue skies, sir.
Ugly day at CrossFit Oakland:
Megan topped out at 95 lbs with a press-out.
Carlo had multiple ugly failures at 155/145 and topped out at 140 with a gnarly dump.
Max (me) Failed at 175 twice and 165 once (and gave up) even though I got 180 just a few days ago. Every day can't be a winner I guess. Got 155 with good form. Was hoping for 205, what a joke!
Ran two mi. instead, 15:23.
RIP LTC Hamilton. We remember and appreciate your service.

Combined total was 10 sec slower than last time. still getting back into it after a rest week.
rested well after each run, but kept it to a minimum.
Sucked bad. My shins were on fire after the first run. I really have to get faster. These times are crap.
