3 rounds + 9 squats in sub-round 2 (PR by 12 reps)
Thanks @Jim K for missing me (at least someone did) not being able to train properly for a mouth was so bad. I could not believe how much I missed CrossFit..... and you guys. .. will do today's WOD later..
Missed 15 squats to complete 4 rounds.
No excuse, but I'm tired, I have shoulder pain and the run is almost 500m here :)
4 rounds, and a fifth of the 5th 400m.
Cindy with a little run eh???
plus about 25m run
looking forward to see
how the usual suspects
crush this one.
snails run faster than me.
4 rnds + 400m & 1rnd
So much harder than I thought.
5 rounds + 50 METERS
Missed 4 complete rounds by 11 squats.
4 rounds + 340m of round 5.
1) Illin'. This respiratory thing can go away any time now, thank you very much. Totally get what you're feeling RW.
2) Breakable. We learn in our L1 seminars that CF is universally scalable. We talk about it here all the time. The good folks at Brand X give you 4 or 5 versions of each WOD published on .com every single day. And yet certain folks in all too predictable groups continue to get broken.
My brother-in-law was in town for about 14 hours to pick up my darling and altogether delightful niece at school. Great visit, but one that was tarnished by his tale of yet another injury which came from "too much" in his Box. It's tragic, really, because Pete really loves CrossFit. He openly states that it's the only thing in his 51 years that made him excited to exercise. Now despite his love for it he's afraid to start up again.
Who's to blame? Certainly Pete bears some responsibility because he admittedly can't make himself throttle down during a WOD, and he has never insisted that he be slowly ramped up to having the ability to safely redline each WOD as Rx'd. Here's where the coaches at his Box, especially the lead dogs, need to step in.
Lil'bingo has 3 or 4 guys just like Pete, mid-life men who are driven to perform, and a couple of them ended up "breaking". The one who just crumbled under the intensity of the volume of even heavily scaled WOD's was a pretty simple fix, especially since he realized his problem and brought it to his very young coaches. Scaling for him needed to include less volume, lengthening and flattening the steepness of his onramp to the highway of fitness.
The other client was just like Pete. He broke himself by redlining when he knew he shouldn't/couldn't. Here's the difference, though. Lil'bingo's client got smothered in coach attention after his injury because it was clear, and he admitted, that he was not to be trusted to protect himself. Injure yourself by not listening to or following advice? Shame on you. Do it twice though and at least some shame on your coach. That's part of the beauty of a Box vs. just being on your own, the fact that a coach lives in the box.
The message here is to the coaches in the Box: the further away we are as athletes from the athletes you may be coaching to the Games the MORE attention we need. Job #1 is don't break us. Job 1A is keep up from breaking ourselves.
3) Mom. It's Mother's Day in America. Mrs. bingo, mother to "The Heir", "Lovely Daughter", and "Lil'bingo" is astride her beloved Lyra, riding riding right in front of me as I type. They are a beautiful couple, all the more so because of the joy that springs from their mutual love and trust. Two very happy girls sharing their passion. Nothing in my life (except Mrs. bingo) makes me as happy as riding Lyra makes Beth happy.
A Mother's Day gift was easy for me: make sure my girl got to ride her horse.
Other than that the gift that I will send to my Mom, and the one I'm hoping my kids will send to Mrs. bingo, is a simple expression of how wonderful it's been to be her son. I'll search my internal hard drive for a couple of happy memories and bring them up when I call her. I'll make sure to let her know how lucky I am to still be the son of a Mom. In my case I'll also gently tease her about how she can probably relax a bit on the need for ongoing parenting her son, but we'll both know that dialing back on that is genetically impossible, another source I hope of happiness and smiles between us.
Unlike Father's Day, a day that I've proposed should be spent in the active pursuit of fatherly stuff, Mother's Day is quite reasonably a day to devote to whatever Mom might want just for Mom's sake. Like an hour at the barn for Mrs. bingo, or an hour at the Box for anyone who shows up to the Open Gym I'll run in a bit. And if Mom wants to do some Mom stuff today, well, we should all be as OK with that as we possibly can, at least for today.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you still fortunate enough to have a Mom to celebrate, like me, and the Clan bingo progeny. Tears and only the happiest of memories for those orphans of any age who must make do with only memories, again hopefully happy. Happy Mother's Day to each and every Mom chez CrossFit, making the world a better place one MomWOD at a time especially Shelly who will hover over "The Heir" for a couple of months. I hope you all get to do just exactly what you want all day!
Now, off to see what else will make Mrs. bingo smile! Happy Mother's Day to my darling Beth.
I'll see you next week...

I kept screwing up...I would do one round of Cindy, then start running, realized I messed up, run back, do another round, forget to do the third...
Wasted a lot of time.
Thanks Kevin C and Jim R! Nice work yourselves!
I hear you Carole! Great weather at last! I think that long cold winter slowed a lot of us down Jim R and Mike A. I too actually enjoyed the runs.
Welcome back RW!
At first glance at the picture, I thought Elijah was sitting on the crossbar! Great performance!

CFWU x 1, some add'l warm ups
4 Rds in 22:22.
Subbed runs with 500m row

At first I misread this and thought it was only one round of Cindy after each Run. Luckily I caught it right before I started. Was looking at everyone else's results and thinking I was hot stuff or something. Nope. Ha ha
4 Rounds and 1 x 400 Meter Run
Did this one outside.
@Mike Andridge, ChuckB, and Jim R, Kevin C, porffenton, Carole - awesome effort, everyone! I'm with you Mike, I need to run faster.

Hang Squat Sn@tch 1-1-1-1-1 reps
95 - 115 - 125 - 135 - 135
Nice work Joe N.!
I was complaining about the programming at my box because they frequently program AMRAPs with running that always end when you are on the middle of a run and are super frustrating. I pointed out how HQ never does AMRAPs with runs...until today.
Thanks Kristin Auger for the great article on Mother's Day. I'm 19 weeks pregnant with my 4th and still going strong in my garage every day. This is my second pregnancy with CrossFit to keep me going and it is all about listening to my body and not someone outside of it to tell me what to do. My midwives always advocated listening to your body, and it pays off throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Had to really kick on that last 400m to finish in time. Was an awesome finish to a great workout. I held a steady pace that I was pretty happy with the whole time, so finishing on nearly a sprint of a 400 really sent it home!
Was 106F here in Saudi today. Not too bad, since I got to duck into my AC for each round.

sub wallballs for squats. 3 full plus a partial 400M
Darn! Into 3rd 400m dawned that this was going way to quickly had only been doing 1 sub rd, corrected after that and managed 2 + 20m. Oh well 20 min wod nonetheless pedal to the metal flat out. Also sub'd HSPU for pull-ups.

Misc warmup, then
Deadhang pullups. At 19:56 I had completed 3 rounds, I stumbled for a few yards until 20 min exactly.
4 rounds, not for time time though. spiked a fever, couple extra rest days, easing back in. I'd like to hear how games level athletes deal with sickness/minor injuries.

CFWU-3. Reg 1st. HSPU instead of PU 2nd. L sits, KB work 3rd. Burgener.
4 rounds. Done at Clubworx so transition between run & PU may have hurt. Disapp. Thought I had better pace & also thought I only got 3 rounds & change last time. Run & squat pace felt good, but must need to go faster on squats, especially.
11/19:12: 4 + 200m.
Decent job pushing overall. As usual,could go faster on runs, squats too. Good job pushing on last run.
