Thankfully it's a day off. I can get my legs back

What!?!...who hasn't passed out for a quick 20 min. siesta after an ass-kickin' WOD!?! Been there!

Comment #4 - Posted by: Junior81 at March 27, 2013 5:41 PM

Help me out, the standards for 13.4 say the bar must make contact with the shoulders for the the bar must touch the shoulder or it's a no rep?
What is an athlete doesn't have the flexibility to get that range of motion but is close to touching their shoulder?

Sara rocks!!!!!!

After killing WODs I lay down in victory

Sounds like Sinister7 has never really given his/her all. Yeah, you hear me.

We are supposed to be "forging elite athletes" not acting like we have never felt the pain of a challenging workout. Elite athletes have felt pain before and handle it with dignity, not rolling around on the ground like a wounded animal.

Great video Sara! I'm glad to see all is well in VB and at CF Takeover. Thanks for starting my CrossFit journey back at Odyssey. Listening to the video brought back memories of getting yelled at by my old coach. Keep up the great work!

Will 13.4 post Saturday or should I do it on Friday's rest day.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Jmyers at March 27, 2013 8:05 PM

For the love of god... get up.

I don't mind laying down for a quick breather after a killer WOD, but what's with the fetal position?

Comment #14 - Posted by: kw at March 28, 2013 4:04 AM

are they even sweating?

Comment #15 - Posted by: jon at March 28, 2013 5:08 AM

FINALLY! A pic for "Rest Day" that actually looks like people resting. 'bout damn time!

Comment #16 - Posted by: Wes at March 28, 2013 5:30 AM

I used to think the sprawled-out on the ground photos were silly. Then I started doing CrossFit.
It doesn't happen every time, but there are moments when you give it your all and that's about all you can do.

Fetal position is a nice touch.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Augustus at March 28, 2013 5:46 AM

Will 13.4 be Friday's WOD on or should it be completed on Thursday's rest day.

Does she have the bar between her legs? No wonder she looks like she's laughing (try to look at her right side up)

Comment #19 - Posted by: MDMelissa at March 28, 2013 6:08 AM

that pic is me every post-Fran. bwahaha.

M/ 39/ 135 lbs/ 5'-6"
I did Open WOD 13.4 this morning before work for 60 reps
7 Minute AMRAP of:
3 C&J with 135 lbs
3 Toes to Bar
6 C&J
6 T2B
9 C&J
9 T2B
keep on going until 7 mins. are up.
I did this one before work at Tribeca EA Club because it has a good bar for T2B. I ws a bit sore and a little tired but no big deal.
I completed the 12th rep of T2B giving me a score of: 60
In the set right before, I wzs planning on starting the WOD, but pinched my neck on the 1st rep... took a few minutes and then restarted. I felt it a bit but figured it would probably feel worse tomorrow so I better get it out of the way if I was able to so I did.
I think if I had bumper plates it would have been faster since I would have been able to just drop it and go and that would have saved some energy. I was hoping for 70 reps but not to be... toes to bar were not bad at all...
GRIP was KILLED after this WOD... I liked the format and the short time makes you have to push with very little rest... for me this is a C&J WOD.. with a bit of a taxed grip part. I'll do this again some time down the road... fun.. short and hard.

Getting after it at altitude.. somedays its like breathing through a coffee straw. Love the pic!

How much weight for clean and jerk in 13.4?

Comment #23 - Posted by: Bruce at March 28, 2013 9:07 AM

I know 13.4 is posted but, Will 13.4 be Friday's WOD on or should it be completed on Thursday's rest day?

Comment #24 - Posted by: WOD at March 28, 2013 9:25 AM

this picture is awesome, exactly how i felt after 13.2!

Comment #25 - Posted by: BM m/22/155/5'8" at March 28, 2013 9:51 AM

13.4 - 54 reps

Comment #26 - Posted by: Mike Vinson/M/45/5'8/212 at March 28, 2013 10:19 AM

I dont understand why people make rude comments about this photo. I work very hard and this is the first time I have competed in the open. Isnt the crossfit community supposed to support each other? I think it is an amazing photo and I am very proud of the work that I have put in to this sport.

Comment #27 - Posted by: kristen at March 28, 2013 10:55 AM

13.4 - 60 reps. Very soon after I started the second round I realized Spealler might have me beat on this one. My next goal was to finish the 12 reps with 40 seconds left so I can get through the TTB's with any last bit of energy I had left. I got the feeling back in my forearms after 6 minutes.

Day 332

For time:
Run 1 mile
100 pull-ups
200 push-ups
300 squats
Run 1 mile
Time - 49:42

Comment #29 - Posted by: fargingbastige at March 28, 2013 11:21 AM

Did 13.4, got thru 3 T2B in the round of 15. Total reps = 78.

I'm disappointed with the result, but not the effort. T2B was the easier of the two - perhaps unexpectedly - unbroken through 9, then 8-4. Tried to pace C&J as best I could - unbroken through 6, then sets of 3 and eventually a lot of singles. I was hurting pretty good from the round of 12 on - actually caught myself wondering if this would be the WOD I would meet Pukie. Hit the round of 15 with not quite 2 minutes left, but just could not go any faster. Got to the 15 T2B with about 10 seconds left. Another 20 seconds and I might have been able to knock them out. Still a fun WOD.

Completed Workout 13.1 today!! Really enjoyed this one! Need to work on my snatch, some Muscular endurance and Strength work required! Ascending volume work should help!!

Total reps - 122

Found the 135lb difficult! Broke them into 2 rep rests!!

Comment #31 - Posted by: Kris Hamilton at March 28, 2013 1:06 PM

As far as the Photo today goes....they look like some fit ladies but they need to watch Sisu, the Mikko Salo Documentary. Who won? The WOD or you?

Comment #32 - Posted by: Sam at March 28, 2013 1:27 PM

@Hard-Os talking trash about recovering after a WOD on the floor. Are you kidding me? Did you watch 13.4 last night? Spealler kicked ass and went to the floor immediately.

Just recieved notification that I passed my Lvl 1 Cert! Awesome!

"So, what did you do?"

Priceless. Great kids, great mom!

Kristen I didn't mean to be rude re:#19...just trying to be lite-hearted.....I'm sorry I offended you and/or minimized your efforts.

Comment #39 - Posted by: MDMelissa at March 30, 2013 4:48 AM

#9 . . . Give it a rest . . . We are forging elite athletes but that doesn't mean that a WOD doesn't hurt . . . Maybe you've never reached that point of pain or exhaustion that leaves you curled up on the floor waiting for it to pass enough to be able to sit up, never mind stand up . . . If you have & have been able to play it off with a smile then good for you, but don't denigrate the rest of us who have from time to time found ourselves feeling like a "wounded animal" & acting like it until the moment passed . . .
