      That is a great article. Esp re: mobility. It is a great supplement, but will never replace doing the movement! Yes.

    I am hoping some extra cardio will help make a few changes since I did not exactly pull big numbers from the Team Challenge (sorry team!) Although I am a clean eater I did learn I typically eat too much protein in comparison to carbs and it has been good to dial back the drinking a bit. All in all I was able to learn a few new things. I will def. keep Zoning!!

    Can’t wait to see which class won :)

    • Rick W

      6:30 AM won. No contest really :)

    Cash out: Tabata row then burpees OTM with Michelle, Maura, Will, Lori and Kathy (great idea – thanks for the push)

  25. Chad M

    Snathch@115; C&J@135.
    Missed yesterday so 21-15-9 Skierg calories/T2B (original thought was ring dips, after the skierg, that wasn’t going to happen.)

  26. Snatch: 35#, C&J 65#. Kept it light to work on form and ease back in after injury. Felt good to lift again.

  27. Colleen (C4!)

    Snatch 70, C&J 100
    I cheated on the Naughty Nooners and went to the 9:30 class. Now that’s a naughty class. There’s a certain Nooner who’s wife goes to the 9:30. She’s more Naughty than he is. It’s hard to snatch when laughing!

    I’ve been thinking a lot about transformation this month, but maybe not in the same sense as others. I’ve been looking at my progress over the past year (I started CF in earnest a year ago April) and trying to understand and appreciate the gains I have made. I think it’s so important to do this, especially because we all tend to beat ourselves up a bit from day to day…should have been faster, should have gone heavier, shouldn’t have eaten that, etc. But when we look at progression as a whole, over the course of a year, it’s pretty outstanding and awfully cool.

    So, today’s point of transformation for me? A year ago, at the internal team throwdown, I could not clean 65#. Not once. Coach Ali was on my team and could not have been more encouraging and celebratory of my 55# max clean, even as she threw 195# up overhead without issue. Today, my 1RM is right around 100#, sometimes 105#, so I did this movement at 65#…the weight I could not do even once last year. On my last set of reps, Coach Kevin watched me and then said “like a pro!” Like a PRO? That meant the world to me. And, the truth is, I knew that I had nailed it on that lift. Not that it was a huge weight by any means, but my form was as good as (or better than) it’s ever been.

    It was a year’s worth of cues and hints and generally great coaching coming together really well. Listen to those cues…take them to heart and incorporate them into everything you do.

    Thanks today to…
    Coach Kevin: “Elbows up.” (<—about a zillion times) Coach Heather: "Let the bar roll back when you catch it." Coach MDV: "Take your time off the floor." Coach Ali: "Fast elbows. Get under the bar." Coach Meg: "Pretend you are scraping your shirt off your chest."

    • Ashley R

      Nice perspective Sara..the great thing about Crossfit is the emphasis on what your body can ‘do’!! Clearly yours has ‘done’ a lot this past year. Nice job- BTW- the side effect is that you look pretty awesome too. Woo-hoo!!!

    • Deb R

      Weally, weally great Sara!!:) I remember your first day at CFNE like it was yesterday! Time flies when your having fun!

    • Laura c

      True DAT! I chuckle at myself at times when I get frustrated over a wod and think of how far I’ve come… Not to mention how we compare outside our little crossfit bubble:)!

    • nice, Sarah:-)

    • Ben Bergeron

      I really like this a lot. Thanks Sarah.

    • You are awesome Sara!

  36. Alison

    snatch – 35#. The squat snatch is such a hard movement for me.
    C&J – 55#. Thanks for the great coaching on my jerk, Max. It made all the difference. I really nailed the last couple as a result. Woo hoo!
    DU Practice — working on not working so hard. My jumps were better, lower, less effort.

    Greg D. – great job on the tshirts – thanks!

    Harry – wishing you a speedy recovery.
