Great picture.

Rest day for me today, but I couldn't sit still. Ran 5k in 28:25, worked on double unders (without much success) for 6 minutes, then did 45 kettlebell swings @ 45 pounds, followed by 10 push ups with bilateral rows @ 20 pounds.

Now that is a rest day!

Wanted to add that their is a great piece on Christmas Abbott on REAL Sports on HBO. It aired tonight, but there might be repeats or you can watch online if you are an HBO subscriber. Nice piece on CrossFit.

I was expecting a working rest day to support the victims of the Boston Marathon. I thought it was noble to work through rest day for the Kenyans a few months ago. This tragedy presents another opportunity to help those in need in any way we can. Hopefully, the main site can put together a program for the next rest day.

I've been waiting for a rest day to do the Khalipa and Fronning Jr, lunch break workout. 10:21

Great story on HBO. I knew the minute I seem her she did crossfit.

Prayers for victims and families in BOSTON.

3 months in and still sore in new places ha. Maybe if I can find the energy I will do that lunch break workout.

I thought my fellow CrossFit'rs would get a kick out of this. Especially since the pull-up picture is obviously at a CrossFit box.

Random question, but does HQ ever hire for guys with business backgrounds? Think it would be an awesome place to work but I've looked around and haven't seen anything. Thanks all!

Made up yesterday's row/bench

Wife just flew to Boston for business. Prayers to all in Boston.

Too nice not to run w happy English Setter dog: 1/2 mile jog, stretches, then 4 x 400m with 60-75 secs rest in between:

1:37, 1:36, 1:46, 1:44

Had more in tank for rounds 3 and 4 but dog didn't. (That may be a first.)

Walked 1/2 mile to cool down.

Target was 1:40-1:50 for each 400, so I'm happy

I ran yesterday as a "rest" day and did the 5 x 500m rows & 15 rep bench press workout today.
Used 65# for the bench press.
21-min. + some odd seconds (lost track of seconds).

I love rowing!

nice roll out - cruised a 5k on 2.5-4.5% incline - 25:30

M/ 39/ 136 lbs/ 5'-6"
I did my own WOD last night
20 lb Weighted vest - 12 box jumps, 6 Snatch Balance, 6 L Pullups

I did this WOD on a wim, with VERY little warm up time.

I was wearing a 20lb weightee vest for the entire WOD, except for the Post WOD where I did a modified version jumping higher, doing OHS, and C2B pullups for cariety and explosion even when tired.
I did 5 complete rounds with an additional warm up round with regular pullups
I then did an additional round with NO vest, doing higher jumps, OHS x 10 and then Chest To Bar pullups
This was a fun WOD and I tweeked my back a bit doing the box jumps.. I was bending over a little bit and then exploding upward. I was really trying to rebound right off the ground. I progressed each round with higher box jumps. I started with 95 lbs, but then used 100 for the other rounds.
