  1. Loven’ the 6am class and the new-to-me people! (even though Liz and I go way back) Learned so much today & didn’t have to run! Who knew jumping rope would require so much skill? I blame the early hour… Loved the rope climb -can’t wait to try again.
    Side note: Awesome feeling getting to work knowing what I have already accomplished for the day. Yay!

  2. Great work 6am and 9am, that row feels so much different than any other type of row.
    I worked in with Dustin at 9am.
    We each hit 5 rope climbs and one trip across the monkey bars.
    Then I worked up to a 1.5 pood KB and 25lb vest pull up. (approximately 77 total pounds for my 3x pull ups)
    We then hit the Turkish get ups, we both worked up to the 45lb barbell just to play with it.
    And finished with a 2 x 50 cals of mental battle rowing. My main goal was to be consistent in all three rows, my second goal was to be sub 2minutes, I never got the sub 2, but stayed consistent. (2:06, 2:10, 2:13)
    Need to get some more work on my overall cardio, I have let slide a little in the last few weeks.

  3. Jena-Remember when we first met? Sheesh, seems like yesterday.
    Josh-ROWING MACHINE! Web is a Brit, they have been rowing a lot longer than us Yankees.
    My rope climb is so close to being a climb, and not just a grab and stand up. I really need to commit to dead-hang pull-ups (with assistance) at every class. Putting it on the blog, makes it a commitment.

  6. I’ve already dropped off my contribution and to that if anyone would like to bring mixers for say.. Whiskey, Rum, Vodka, Tequila then feel free… Of course this is in NO way paleo, but even the cave men had to have fun every once in a while.. Juss’ sayin’

  7. Ive come to the point in my love with Crossfit that when I’m out of town and missing a WOD I think, “Dang! That one looks fun! I hate that I’m out of town!” I’m enjoying my vacation but I feel so devoted to my love for crossfit that I’m disappointed when I see the WOD and I’m unable to participate.
    With that being said have fun tomorrow partying and WODing it up tomorrow people! I wish I could be there!
