Good morning New England! Okay so i know this is a far fetch, but I figured i would give it a try. As I open a new chapter in my life, and find opportunity to move across the country, I am met with some hesitation because I think the move i really want to make is to Massachusetts. As a competitive athlete, I am excited to be guided by Ben, but feel that it would be so much more beneficial to me if I was there in person. Moving is hard, and I only want to do it once. My goal is to someday fill a spot as a coach at New England, become an HQ Trainer, and most importantly, place top 10 at the CrossFit Games. To do this I need better training, better opportunity, and a new location. I truly think you guys are an amazing group of people. When I visited earlier this year, I was greeted with open arms. I felt so comfortable. I hope I had the chance to impact some of you in the same way. Any who…what I am searching for is,
1. Anyone looking for a cheap roommate until i can get on my feet if i move up there?
2. Any job opportunities you can think of>? I am skilled in many fields, but love CrossFit first and foremost.
Hi Cheryl. When are you looking to move? Email me at email@example.com thanks
There are a BUNCH of new cf boxes opening and recently opened in the area. I don’t think that part would be an issue. Love to have you up here soon. Hurry-we’re gonna be getting HA-UGE soon.

Did the 6:30am kicked butt today or what? Looks like the honey badger 5:30am needs to step it up a notch! Nice work 6:30am!
thanks for the encouragement to hit rx weight! We will step it up next week!!
Black & Blue: 7:23 Rx (1:26 PR)
Froning was in the house this morning so could not let him show up once and crush us all as usual. Though he probably was saving a little something for a 100 mile bike ride…or the workout he was going to go over and do at CF2A at lunch.
Nice work bro
Black and Blue: 8:19, 65#, felt good with my back. :31 second PR from March, with the same weight!
Nope, I take that back- I went 5# heavier today!

Awesome coaching MDV, and great job on the wod.
Lots of awesome pr’s this am. So fun to be with the class.
I was taken aback by how many people made various comments that sounded like this: “I pr’d by X. I know this stuff works but WOW- this stuff REALLY works. I’m so glad I keep track of my times.”
Personally, I haven’t been doing a good enough job of this in the last few months, but I’m starting again today!
Are YOU tracking your wods? What do you use? Logbook, logsitall.com, beyondthewhiteboard, something else? Doesnt matter, just do it!
You should have scaled up, this WOD was too easy for you!
I track my WODs in 3 places- and I’m glad I do, because I frequently find mistakes! I have a log book, I keep a blog, and I track them here!
I track my wods in 4 places; the CFNE website, MyWod app, logbook, Facebok(sometimes), where else shoud I should I track them?
Beyond the whiteboard. http://beyondthewhiteboard.com/
It is a bit of a pain in the @$$ to enter data, but the charts and grapsh are pretty cool, especially for geeks like me.
Ooooo that’s a good time… Hoping for ^sub 5 myself
Psyched you will be heading our way, Cheryl!
“Black and Blue” 8:32, 85#
PCs were heavy for me — thanks MDV for talking me down when I wanted to jettison some mid-WOD. In looking at the times everyone’s posting at Rx, I think I may have missed a round somehow, especially considering how slow I felt on the cleans. If that’s the case, I’m going to call it “strength scaling” instead of “accidental cheating because I can’t count.” Wish I could come in for a do-over tonight!
getting strong, Rachel!
Thanks, Michelle! Today was a mess but looking forward to getting back at it this weekend. You’ve been having a heck of a week yourself!!
Wow, good for you! I bet you did all 5 rounds. You are usually a speed demon on those burpees.
Black & Blue 8:37 115#
Not a PR (did it same time @ 125# in March) but that is ok -a hard week of training and stressful week of work has me running on fumes. Gave it my all today.
I felt the same way today Rick. Nice job.
Awesome energy this morning. Love my early morners!
Great job brother! I think is at least a :30 pr for you! Smokin
Holy COW you are FAST! Our fearless 5:30 am leader showing us how it’s done. Thanks for all the encouragement and incredible coaching. You rock!
Black and blue 10:22 @ 85#. Did round 1 with 95# starting failing in rnd 2 so dropped some weight. Have done this rx in the past but just didn’t have it in me today. Day 4 in a row and it has been grueling. Happy for rest day tomorrow.
Black and Blue: 10:53 Rx. This was a huge success for me today. I did this workout about 9 months ago at a time of 10:40 but did 65#. 30# more and roughly the same time frame.
Felt good! thanks for the extra support and push Allie!!
That’s awesome! Nice work.
Black and Blue; 10:30 Rx (0:23 pr)
happy with pr for two reasons; last WOD was in March (not that long ago), and today’s humidity was crazy (and I typically do not do well in heat).
3 mile run with the parent’s puppy. She was pretty focused though.
we miss you but the vacation looks like fun. Aiming to run a 5k in the fall…any interest in joining me?
Bullet Proof Shoulders
Great work brother! Tied for the week! Looks like we’ll have to battle tomorrow! Let me know what time you’re planning on going.
Wish I could go. Cape bound this weekend. Will be in Monday!
B&B: 8:00, 60#, 22 sec pr.
Oh that’s right, you’re a burpee MACHINE!!!!!!
yes, she is!!!
150 WB (16#): 10:10
Lots of WBs this week. Slowly taking weight back up again. Started @ 10# last Saturday and took it up 2# every other day.
I “got to” do bar warm up today. First time in months. Felt fine…pretty psyched about this development.
2000m row with Neeb
Bullet Proof Shoulders.
This sounds a bit ridiculous, but I miss Burpees!
I understand – I did them for the first time today…..
Nice work JC! Slowly but surely working your way back!
Black and Blue: 7:05 rx
Black & Blue: 9:46 (55#) Thanks Max & MDV for help with form!
Great job Krystle! Looking super strong!
Pullups and now this! Nice work!
@ CF SCOTTSDALE
I don’t think I’ve done this WOD before but I’m not sure. I didn’t have my log book because chad made me only bring a carry on so the log book and weight lifting shoes had to stay home.
B & B: 7:15 (75#)
5# more than last time and 30 sec slower
Great 9:30 class Ali
great job, Nicole. Let me know about whether you want me to pass along a name for your feet.
Black and Blue 12:27 115#
Did with 95# last time in 10:05
Black and Blue: 9:48 Rx (PR by 1:50 and 30#)
Hope and change are alive at CFNE. Excellent coaching, MA Jen – thanks for handing me the wrench.
Black and Blue – 8:39 60# -
Prob could have done 65# but I played a mental game with myself over it…..
About a minute PR and 5# PR
I’m liking seeing my progress.
Thanks Jen for a great Nooner, as usual:)!
Laura are you talking dirty with me ? Ha! Was a great time. You guys did fantastic!!!
I AM!!! Finally a woman who has my sense of humor. Sorry I was so “quick” this time:)!
Black&Blue:10:16 with 75#. 04 seconds faster and 10# heavier.No too bad after yesterday’s wod.
Black and Blue 8:45 115#
Bulls Eye: 14:29 95#, 20 sit-ups, 30 sec rest between rounds.
Black and Blue: 9:15 65#
Was pleased that this was 5# heavier than Power Hour, but probably could have gone heavier. MDV gave great advice to take the burpees one rep at a time, which was a great mental tool for me today since burpees usually get to me.
Black and Blue 10:27
6Pc per round @85#
thank you for the tips MDV!!
good job Max!
I LOVE this WOD … and it looks like Derek finally beat me at it! Nice work.
Miss you guys, it’s nice to see basically the entire old 530pm was the party bus crew. That’s how it’s done.
