Reply Braatz on June 28, 2013 at 7:15 am 5K run: 25:14 Reply Andy M on June 28, 2013 at 7:24 am 830: 20:23 Rx Reply Heather O on June 28, 2013 at 7:46 am Happy Friday everyone! 5K run here in Dallas: 28:49. Not sure if PR or not bc though I did to the CFNE 5K length of 3.3 it was not the CFNE course that I last did in 29:00. But regardless ill take it. Also did 100 sit-ups and 100 push-ups. Yesterday I got in a 5 miler, some dumbbell snatches, thrusters and push presses and 50 sit-ups and push-ups. Have a great day and weekend everyone. Look forward to getting back at it next week. Reply Big Mie on June 28, 2013 at 7:52 am 3 RM front squat: 225 (10# pr) 10 RM front squat: 195 (7 reps) 5K row: 19:25 Big Mike: Where is Andrew? Real Doug Bell: There is no way he is coming, but I have a lot of unanswered questions, I’m not done with him. Big Mike: Ahh yes, the kiss…… We won’t be done with him for a while Reply Alison on June 28, 2013 at 9:02 am Huh? Do tell (or kiss and tell????) the story… Reply Dave N on June 28, 2013 at 10:01 am Too many Ciroc and Sodas last night…could not make 5:30am Great time…all excpet witnessing “The Kiss” ruined my night Reply Big Mike on June 28, 2013 at 10:22 am Hard to put it in words…..oh what the hell… Their eyes met, there was a connection. One of those once in a lifetime moments. Soul mates. They both felt it and they both knew it. This one time, this place, this one chance. It didn’t take words, just instinct, the kind of instinct that sends salmon swimming against the flow of mighty rivers. They moved closer until they could smell each others breath….Budweiser, some drink the girls drink mixing together to further fuel the passion that would soon come. They got closer, whiskers touched first (damn I knew I should have shaved he thought)….then the lips…just a momentary contact but it was enough…it was electric. Then Rachel dropped her drink as she realized her Playgirl Forum letter was about to come true…Hi, my name is Rachel and I never thought I would be writing this story………. Well-that’s how I saw it anyway. Reply Alison on June 28, 2013 at 11:14 am Oh! BTW — did you take a creative writing class from EL James? Reply Rachel E on June 28, 2013 at 5:33 pm Hahahaha this is amazing. As was that slow-mo movie kiss…. so romantic Reply Ho on June 28, 2013 at 10:42 am I have a couple of thoughts: 1) I woke up this morning and immediately started laughing at the idea that I thought, even for a second, that I would make it to the gym this morning…I’m still a little drunk as I type this. 2) I totally, and I mean totally, forgot about Casey kissing me…not shocking that now we all get to share in the story. Community love. 3) It’s been quite a while since I kissed a dude. At least he was gentle. 4) Rachel dropping her drink at the sight was the best part 5) If my eyes were closed and I was standing still, that makes it all ok. It could have been anyone. Reply Jen W on June 28, 2013 at 10:47 am OMG I’m so sad I missed this. Reply Big Mike on June 28, 2013 at 10:57 am If #1 had not happened-#2 probably would not have either. For god sakes it was squats…..one of the FEW movements you can make me feel like a little boy with and you didn’t make it in. For the record-I came in purely driven by the fear of retribution if I had slept in on my day off. You want to play-you gotta pay, young Padawan. Lesson learned. The 5:30 is calling you. Fitness awaits. Kisses…… Reply Ho on June 28, 2013 at 11:14 am Trust me…I’m pretty devastated I missed it, particularly since I’m on vacation starting tomorrow. No CFNE for a while. Sadness is setting in. Reply Big Bri on June 28, 2013 at 1:01 pm I need to get out more often. Reply KarenH. on June 28, 2013 at 2:42 pm my same exact thoughts Brian Heather V. on June 28, 2013 at 8:35 am 5K: 25:09 not sure this is a PR, as last time, I did the longer version in 25:30. guess it makes a difference when Big Mike is chasing/passing you. Only 5 runners in the 5:30am this morning. Reply Alison on June 28, 2013 at 9:03 am It’s hard to tell how fast/slow you are going without a rabbit (or a gps/pace watch). Reply Jen W on June 28, 2013 at 9:13 am I hear the MDV send off went late . . that may be why. Reply Kate S on June 28, 2013 at 10:15 am i’m going to say it was 25:00 – that tying of the shoe should be excluded Reply Stephan on June 28, 2013 at 8:45 am 5K 27:25 2:02 PR from 5/31 5K and 4:00 off 5/2 5K Reply sean on June 28, 2013 at 5:49 pm Boom! Reply Taxi on June 29, 2013 at 7:48 am Way to work, kid! Reply Andrew E on June 28, 2013 at 9:22 am It was awesome meeting so many CFNE people last night; MDV will be missed but welcome to being fully-aboard, Rachel! And good luck to anyone competing at the Masters comp in Canton this weekend. Reply Eddie on June 28, 2013 at 9:34 am 5K: 23:08 Reply Doole on June 28, 2013 at 9:43 am Congrats Rachel!! 20 rep BSq – 225. getting near my max here I think. That was tuff 5K – 22:32. Thanks for the push Craig!! 4 x 750 row good luck Master competitors this weekend!! Reply Craig B. on June 28, 2013 at 2:38 pm Ur a machine!! Reply Katrina on June 28, 2013 at 9:49 am BS 135# 20 reps Power Drill: 41:38 RX/PR. I was beating myself up over the time, but then went back and saw it took me 51min last time and 50min the time before with scaling. So today shaving 10mins off….pretty happy now. Reply Kristin B. on June 28, 2013 at 9:51 am Awesome Katrina! Reply Doole on June 28, 2013 at 9:53 am WOW! that’s awesome!! Reply Eileen on June 28, 2013 at 10:08 am Awesome, Katrina!

Seeing video on form was really helpful – tks, Ben! Reply Joe D on June 28, 2013 at 11:23 am 5k-36:09 Reply Jamie on June 28, 2013 at 11:55 am Greetings All, Latest intelligence suggests that MDV will not be coaching tonight’s 5:30. Thought it was gonna be his last rodeo. So with that today is going to be a much needed rest day. I also witnessed the KISS. A most beautiful moment indeed !! Reply Christian on June 28, 2013 at 12:05 pm Ah, what?? I couldn’t make it last night, but thought we’d get one more class with MDV! Reply Big Bri on June 28, 2013 at 12:40 pm 5K run – 24:20 Reply Susan Stein on June 28, 2013 at 12:51 pm Row 5K: 23:17 Reply Susan Stein on June 28, 2013 at 12:53 pm Forgot to say bye to Matty. I’m going on vacation so I won’t be back in for a couple of weeks. Best of luck to you Matty and thanks for all the great coaching. I’ll miss you!

Managed the first mile and a half without stopping to walk! Thanks to all who encouraged me. 39.36. Did 37 minutes last time, but it was not quite so humid. Reply Katrina on June 28, 2013 at 2:23 pm Way to stick with it. Nice work. Reply Craig B. on June 28, 2013 at 2:35 pm 5k: 22:49 Reply Bubba on June 28, 2013 at 2:38 pm 20 rep back squat. 225. Could go heavier but spitting distance to old numbers Max reps C2B: 28. Psyched 5k run: 23:16. Ok but paced first half too much. Second half was 30 seconds faster Reply LEARD on June 28, 2013 at 2:51 pm 5K 24:56 with the none’s (why did I not remember that is the hottest part of the day?) Need to work on my pose pulls, thanks for the video break down after too. Reply Melinda on June 28, 2013 at 3:58 pm Power Drill: 30:00-31:00 1abmatHSPU, rest Rx. Had a clock reset in middle, so time is someplace between. Wall balls are no joke in this one! 20 rep BSq 145# Thank you Jonathan for doing PD with me today! Reply Jonathan on June 28, 2013 at 5:15 pm You kicked ass…lapped me on the second round. I’m just happy to have survived it this time! Power Drill: About 4 minutes slower than Melinda (Rx).

Reply Carol on June 28, 2013 at 7:54 pm I went to the track, set out to do it. One mile in and my daughter starts screaming she needs to do #2. 1 mile: 10:08 It’s hard getting my mile times back here in Colorado. I have not broken the 10 minute mark yet. 40 minutes of yoga Reply Christian on June 28, 2013 at 8:39 pm 24:09 – I think I paced my first two miles too much. I was moving so much better that last mile + 200m Reply AK on June 28, 2013 at 11:37 pm 25:36… About 2 min off my PR from a month ago. Grateful for making it to the 5:30pm today. LOVE the new CFNE gear! Just in time for the 4th!
