Are we all signing up for the Reggae Run??!!! Let’s make it an off campus WOD competition!!!!!
Absolutely, Megs. It’s in early October, which should leave us plenty of time to teach you how to keep your feet beneath you while running.
Hmm. 10/3 is the day right before the Morgan’s Canoe triathlon, though I should have enough endurance work in by that time that a 5K is just a warm-up…
well darn, my cousin gets married oct 3, i may have to miss the run…. haha 🙂
Re: Reggae Run So do you get the 4 beers Glenn mentioned even if you don’t place in the top 50? I can totally bring my own cup.
I’m not gonna promise anything, but if i’m still in the states and can get a pass I’ll come hobble my way through the Raggae Run.
Reggae Run sounds good. I have to get better at running.
Did 5k at 6:30am. Time was 27:56.
Steve, I wouldn’t cross your fingers!!
Did nasty girls with some subs
21 ring rows,21 pushups and cleans at 76 pounds
Cleans not nearly as smooth as the other day
Squats felt great and I can tell a big difference in both pushups and ring rows over just the last month
did nasty girls @ 95lbs with 3:1 subs pullups and pushups for MU… and thats where i spent the majority of my time ha – 24:39
Rowed 5k- 22:41 painful but stopped two times because i’m a wimp. Wanted to give a shout out to all the other rowers today: Sui, Mike, Jim!!! GREAT job, good efforts, and hopefully the pain has stopped by now!
Thanks for whipping me like a horse Meg.
Mike- you’re lucky i didn’t have my spurs on me today! Next time i’m going to pinch you everytime you put your hands on your thighs to ‘rest’!
2K row – 8:03 (20sec PR)
Yeah, it kinda hurt.
But BIG THANK YOU to MegsT for being my rowing coach! And all the other CFNers for their encouragement!
Minus Jordan (who yelled the following with about 300m left), “Go faster! Why are you rowing SO SLOW?”
5k run – 26:33
My first 5k on the CrossFit Nasti course. I am ashamed to admit that I walked about 200ft on Brotherton. I was focusing on running to Fielding at which point I would be home free. I had it in my sights and sped up. “Fielding” turned out to be a brick wall around half way between Rosslyn Dr and Fielding. I was so depressed. I will kick Brotherton’s ass on the next 5k.
Rowed 5k. 22:33. PR by 2:31.
You all clearly have the running piece covered so I’ll honor Bob (Marley, that is); sport dread locks, smoke ganja, and cheer your tired selves on from the sidelines
I feel that i have failed because you got an 8:03. I apologize, because if i gave you some more motivation you could have done it in under eight. So I can’t wait for the next time I am there when you are doing the WOD. I will bring so much motivation you will be able to take it home you.
1) Thank you for re-emphasizing that I got an 8:03 tonight instead of the highly desired 7:59.
2) The only “next time” where you’ll be there while I’m rowing a 2K, is if you’re on the rower next to me, breaking the red number tie.
3) Apology still accepted.
Did the 5K
31:11. PR by about 3 minutes!!!!! (and that was after blasting my insulin levels up incorrectly by eating 3 cups of oatmeal with that Oh-SO-NASTY 2% organic milk mixed with about 2 tbl spoons of honey. And THEN I tried to make up for it by eating 12 turkey sausage links. If Brent had seen this he would have punished me with 558 burpees= the equivalent of how many extra half-seconds I took.
Stupid.. STUPID!!! (image of Scott yelling at his belly the way Tim V. yells at his hands should come into your mind right now)
I must get better
Yes, there is only one way for this to happen…
It isn’t through burpees….
And no, stretching out will not help..
I…. MUST…. DU HAST…………………….
