Reply mdv on May 31, 2013 at 9:13 pm Sam you could do this as an individual and do 40 reps of each. Reply Sammy B on May 31, 2013 at 10:05 pm Got it! Thanks Coach! Reply Susan Stein on May 31, 2013 at 9:07 pm Yay Wendy!!!! Reply JC on May 31, 2013 at 9:37 pm Atta girl Wendy. Looking super strong! So much progress the last few months!

So strong too. Reply Laura c on May 31, 2013 at 10:02 pm Wendy = hot. Badass. Sweetheart. Reply Ali on May 31, 2013 at 10:04 pm Truth. Reply Wendy P on May 31, 2013 at 10:41 pm I just cried.. Not just because I get more emotional as I get older… Not because I have worked really hard to become a better crossfitter or athlete in general in the last 9 months, BUT because I have made the move to the east coast 16 years ago and never felt like someone/community that was truly behind me. I thank you all immensely! This area is very hard for transplants. I have really felt a love at CFNE that I did not know existed. Xoxo. Wen Reply Ken K on May 31, 2013 at 11:02 pm Wendy, We are also transplants coming from the south 8 years ago ( we did have a stint outside the US for a couple of years, but landed back in Boston). I can empathize with your sentiment. This can be a tough town for outsiders. That said, I agree that CFNE is a special place and the people make it that way. You should feel awesome about the gains you have made…you did the work and put in the effort. We are all very fortunate to have a place like CFNE. Keep it up! Now you can be an ambassador to others who want to be a part of something special. Very cool! Reply Ali on June 1, 2013 at 1:23 am Yessss….another love-fest moment. CFNE <3 laura c on June 1, 2013 at 10:09 am me three! I am a transplant and I agree with all the above said. And I LOVE to walk in and see your smiling face…and bad ass arms! Reply Ken K on June 1, 2013 at 11:44 am Thanks Laura! Oh, you were talking about Wendy. JoeV on June 1, 2013 at 6:17 pm Wendy has been giving away free tickets to the gun show lately. She rocks. So happy for you, Wendy! SueB on June 1, 2013 at 12:00 am Way to go, Wendy!! Reply Matty Noits on June 1, 2013 at 8:33 am 5k run Saturday morning PR!!!! Previous time 24:04 Today’s time. 22:48 BAM! Reply Sarah S. on June 1, 2013 at 11:39 am BAM is right! Reply Sammy B on June 1, 2013 at 8:54 am Individual WoD: 17:16 (50#) 40 of each movement; squat clean and jerks. Harder than it sounded, esp squat cls. Would have been more fun as team WoD! But a good one all the same. Have a good wkend CFNE. Stay cool. Reply Braatz on June 1, 2013 at 9:34 am Team WOD: 24:02 Rx Team MADMen (Mike R, Andy L, Dennis, M Braatz). Don Draper looks, Roger Sterling smooth. Reply Andy L on June 1, 2013 at 10:53 am good times! Reply Patrick on June 1, 2013 at 9:37 am 2000m row – 8:58 3×4@175 30 muscle ups for time – 16:30. Made the mistake of doing two sets of 5 unbroken at the beginning, struggled to do singles for the second half. Probably took 15 additional tries to get 30 successful. Nevertheless, felt great to be at the gym and be able to do some different movements. Reply Sarah S. on June 1, 2013 at 11:37 am Nice Patrick! Great to see you back! Reply JC on June 1, 2013 at 9:39 am Old Guy WODs with Big Mike on the side deck. Reply Braatz on June 1, 2013 at 9:41 am p.s. Did anyone find my mini-tupperware cup containing a single serving of chocolate protein powder? It was last seen on the shelf near the tape and lacrosse balls at 7am. I know it’s not much, but that cup has sentimental value – used it to transport my “sample” to the hospital following my vasectomy. If you accidentally took it, that’s the bad news. The good news, sort of… extra protein. Reply Laura c on June 1, 2013 at 10:06 am O.M.G. that’s worse then my cookie dough story!! Reply Braatz on June 1, 2013 at 10:16 am Yeah, but I’m pretty sure yours is true. Reply Laura c on June 1, 2013 at 10:24 am Yeah… It’s true… Reply Tricia D on June 1, 2013 at 10:05 am Congratulations, Wendy! Reply laura c on June 1, 2013 at 10:13 am Team WOD: 19:29 RX Meg,laura,lori and maura I have to say I was a bit intimidated to do this WOD with these ladies but as I drove home I thought about that is what makes CFNE special (among a million other things) but I am able to do a team WOD with games athletes and not feel bad about it! And 2 other “moms” that are super strong! Fun time ladies and great work! And Rachel- thanks for the cues on my clean and jerk – totally HELPED! Reply Derek on June 1, 2013 at 11:19 am Anyone have a recommendation for a trail run near the gym/ in the area? Reply Eugene on June 1, 2013 at 1:09 pm Saint knows all the trails in Wellesley… Reply Kim P. on June 1, 2013 at 2:35 pm How far do you want to run? There are trails near Scrub a Dub and a nice flat loop around Wellesley College. Reply Derek on June 1, 2013 at 3:33 pm You guy are the best. Probably a 5ish miler. Pls email me if you have a good one. Derek@crossfitnewengland.com Thanks! Reply Rick W. on June 1, 2013 at 2:43 pm on Rt. 9 just before hitting the Toyota dealership (near rt. 95) are a bunch of trails. You can park at the toyota dealership or the office park attached. Reply JoeV on June 1, 2013 at 6:20 pm Check out the aqueducts in Wayland, Sudbury, etc. Reply Deb R on June 1, 2013 at 11:42 am Team WOD: 20:49 w/ Rich (not sure of last name), Andy R and today’s cover Model, Wendy P.(looking good Wendy) Great Job! That was a lot of fun! Reply Corey on June 1, 2013 at 11:49 am 5K: 33:50 2 second PR haha However, the heat was brutal, the sun was brutal and I walked a few times so, I believe had conditions been similar I would have finished around 30 mins but alas, it is what it is I then decided hey, lets stick around for the 9am. So did the team WOD with Greg, Nikki and Mike. No idea what our time was but that was super fun. Reply Laura c on June 1, 2013 at 11:56 am But your shades were awesome Reply Greg D on June 1, 2013 at 12:17 pm Awesome job on the team WOD today. Our time was 23:23 with Mike and I doing 75# OHS. Great to meet Mike and Nikki today. Awesome team effort! Reply Corey on June 1, 2013 at 1:44 pm Oh and challenge results: 4lbs gone, 4 inches gone, and 2% body fat. Seeee ya lata!

Reply Melinda on June 1, 2013 at 1:21 pm Solo WOD: 16:00 Rx + GW Reply Sarah Wilson on June 1, 2013 at 6:15 pm Team WOD with Ernie P, Bob R, and Thomas. 21:50 I think. We were really awesome. After party: soccer game on turf in 95 degree heat. And I was the only one on the field over 30. I really appreciate the training I do here. Also feel lucky to find that spare Tupperware bottle this morning with the egg white in it. Great pregame drink. Reply Braatz on June 1, 2013 at 6:29 pm I NEVER write “LOL”, but holy sh_t that is funny. L.O.L. Literally. Reply Ken K on June 1, 2013 at 7:28 pm Ha!!!!

Reply LRay on June 14, 2013 at 5:23 pm Did people do this with one athlete working at a time or 2? Chipper style?
