I really enjoyed the feature on Heather Gillespie on the games site. What an amazingly humble person.

Gary - keep winning brother! Your story will inspire thousands as it's inspired me. I used your video series as a promo to a buddy of mine considering Crossfit

Murph today to get ready for Memorial Day Murph. Another Crossfitter saw me doing cleans in the (non-Crossfit) gym yesterday - he's rocking Murph with me - it's gonna be awesome!

Has anyone developed a really bad case of tendinitis on the inside bend of the elbow? Maybe the big bicep tendon. I've actually taken a 1.5 months off. No difference. Any cleaning upright rowing type of movement just kills it sometimes. I thought maybe the pull ups was the cause idk. Any remedies other than more rest? This sucks.

What happened to the classical music, and thought provoking articles? I really love that, along with all the great crossfit info.

I totally rock rest days. I manage max reps of "nothing" each time. WooHoo!

anyone have a good workout you can do with a sprained ankle? i googled it, but no dice.

I hope there is a sequel called KTFMD. Gary's Dad could be next. That would be even more amazing!

Day 8
Since I had Sat/Sun off and know that Fri won't be happening this week, I decided to drive on. I did Sun WOD yesterday and so today did yesterday's WOD today. I subbed Tuck Jumps for the Double Unders and it went something like this:
1) 105
2) 115
3) 125
4) 130
5) 135
6) 140
7) 145
8) 150 - failed
Not wanting to end an otherwise great workout on a failed attempt:
9) 140
10) 140

I can't even Rx a rest day.

20-mile Sandia Mtn Run, elevation gain 5,261 ft through two circuits. 4:26:41. Slow, I know, but the terrain dictates the pace and my legs are still smoked from Sunday's WOD. I'll stop whining now.

Sounds like golfer's/tennis elbow. Really hurts when you do pull-ups or pulling lifts? To fix this try stretching your elbow tendons by straightening your arm out in front (think Frankenstein), palm facing up, and pulling your fingers back slowly towards your elbow. Hold for 5-10 seconds. This will loosen/elongate the tendon. Will also improve your front squat position with the increased wrist flexibility.

Killing the fat man is a great series.
I get that you're going through an amazing transformitive experience and you're in love with life and the whole world again.... but DUDE you just put your drivers license number, date of birth, and address on the internet.
It's time to return to planet earth, man.
