Dan baileys my boy! No offense against Rich at all but I would love to see Dan take it all. Super pumped about the open anyone else signed up.
I'm signed up
look for me at the way bottom
but I'll be having the most fun.
As a high school health teacher of 188 students a semester, I feel overwhelmed trying to teach them about the dangers of sugar. It is like my own little "chipper" I've just got to keep plugging away.
Look foward to competing with you. Did it last year and was a lot of fun. My wife is also a teacher and every year she does a class project where the goal is to give up sugar for a week. This teaches them just how much sugar we are really consuming and how addictive sugar actually is.
I'm signed up and looking forward to competing; against myself. :)
I'm approaching the CF Games like I approached the marathons I've run. I didn't run them thinking for even a millisecond that I would win. I ran them because I wanted to challenge myself to be a better, faster runner.
Maybe we should start a pool on who'll be dead last, and I've a feeling it may be me. I'm perfectly okay with that!
I'm in. Excited and scared for tomorrow.
Can't wait, happy to attack the Open WODS with my CF family.
Going on a holiday today. Taking my rings, a kettlebell, a wallball and a rope... Bring on 14.1!
Okiedokie, troops. I have to take Friday off exercise, so I need a Crossfit workout for today instead.
Who wants to pick one for me?
Please be kind...I had a baby a few months ago.
Managed to sqeeze in a 5k row before work this morning. Will probably be no time for workouts this weekend :(
5k row (damper 5)
I really miss the CrossFit Journal articles by Dr. Steven Platek. Where'd he go? It's as if he dropped off the face of the planet.
Elle, congratulations on the baby!
Here's one you can do
10min AMRAP of:
5 Overhead Squats
10 Lateral Jumps over the Barbell
I second that
Ooh, I like it. Will do. Thanks!
Excited to hear the announcement tonight! Anyone else in London, UK hitting up 14.1?
W/U: 3 rounds of: 200m row, 5 ring dips, 15 double-unders, 10 GHD, 5 box jumps 30".
Strength: Squat 3x5 @ 210# (PR). Floor press 3x5 @ 182# (PR).
Conditioning: 5 rounds of max reps push press and 60s row for calories. 129 total reps (39 pp @ 135# & 90 calories row).
Good time of year to practice some personal sacrifice. Time to shut the spigot on the sugar intake.
I'm going to cut out all the sweet tasties, ice cream (the hardest part), the m's in my trail mix, even my post-workout chocolate milk. With any luck, my habits will morph for the better by the end of six weeks.
At least I'll be drinking less coffee.
I am a student teacher right now and I would love to see how your wife does this lesson about sugar. And how many kids give up sugar and how it effects them.If you have any information for me please pass it along. Looking for a little guidance.
CFT make up from yesterday.
Back squat - 315#
Press - 185#
Deadlift - 345#
Total - 845
@Nate, that's an amazing shoulder press from you. Well done! I'm jealous.
"He who has the most fun, wins."
Taking this one with me for the Open. Might not be my year for Regionals but damned if I don't have a blast judging and competing :)
Thanks! the squat and deadlift need some work, but with this programming I have a feeling they'll improve.
Made up yesterday's wod today and pr'd big on my squats and dead lifts.
My technique is getting better and I can feel it! So pumped wish I would have singed up for the open. I def have a goal for next year though.
8 P.M. here on the East Coast....... Waiting for tomorrow's WOD......Should have posted already
