    Used 24 kg on the swings. Have to step my game up and go for the big boy next time.

    C2B pull ups and thrusters at 95lbs felt strong.

    Thanks coaches for helping me heal by modifying my workouts for the last 3+ months. Although I’m weak and will be taking it slow, looks like I’m back to it all.

    Tommy, Jeff, Ed and Rachel – had a good time with you guys today!

    UES spitter on 3!

    16kg – KB
    53lbs – Thrusters

    Thanks to everyone for getting me through the end! Could have been at least 5 seconds faster if I didn’t hit my chin with the barbell in the middle of the last round of Thrusters! 🙂

    18:22 rx’d.
    Runs – The plan was to rest during these. I finished the first round in front as my peers seemed to have the same idea. I walked the beginning and end of round 2 and 3 (uphill parts) as I felt horrible.
    KBs – I was going to break these up but 2 pood felt good so I did them unbroken.
    C2B – Round 1 I did 10-6-5. I thought I was moving quickly but then saw jtisa hit the thrusters before me! He is a pull-up machine! I learned after the WOD that he was doing sets of 5 fast. I’ll try 6-5-5-5 next time with less rest. Round 2 was a no-brainer 5-5-5 and round three was 4-3-2 which I think was smart since I tried very short rests.
    Thrusters – Jared, I believe you were being genuine when you suggested doing these unbroken but you are confusing me with someone with knuckle tattoos. This was not happening. Round 1: 12-9. Round 2: 9 – 6. Round 3: Unbroken.

    I must admit that knowing Jared’s time improved my score.

  8. dlede

    7x800m sprints with 2 min rest
    Averaged about 3min each

    In Syracuse so also did this in 30 degree temps. Still coughing now. Good times.

    3 rounds – 21/15/9
    20kg/jumping pull ups/ 65# thrusters

    The kb swings were easy peazy – did them all unbroken. I will get the 24kg soon.

    Thrusters were rough today for some reason.

    23 flat w/lots of scaling. Missed gym all week due to cold and shoulder not feeling great (notes to self for next time!)

    26:59 at 95lb thrusters and 1.5 pood kbs. I did the thrusters paul bunyan style – split. them up. Thanks to the whole 11:30 crew for the push at the end.

    love this

    CrossFit Cue of the Day:

    For traditional kipping pull-ups, to ensure the shoulder isn’t internally rotated at the shoulder open position: “Pretend you are painting two parallel straight lines on the roof.”
