CFNE A Team 123 Comments Cotter on July 26, 2013 at 7:09 am “Ben”: 21:40 Rx Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:54 am Solid! Reply Ho on July 26, 2013 at 7:16 am 3RM back squat: 305 10RM back squat: 255 Ben: first DNF…made it to the round of 4s but had to stop. Back and body were seizing up during the runs, scaring the crap out of me. Stung a lot to quit but I’m sort of proud of myself. Usually my pride gets the better of me. Who knew CFNE was also helping to make me less of a dinglehead? Time to rest. See ya Mondee. Reply Big Mike on July 26, 2013 at 8:30 am Now I feel really bad about hazing you. Smart move to shut it down. Reply Ho on July 26, 2013 at 9:42 am Yeah, there’s nothing quite like bending over writhing in pain, wondering if you’re destroying your back and ruining the next few months of your life and then hearing someone loudly screaming and making puke noises at you… Best. Friends. Forever. Reply Big Mike on July 26, 2013 at 10:31 am Pot of soup, ice bag and heat balm on its way over to your office. Feel better. Reply Braatz on July 26, 2013 at 9:38 am Me too… DNF. Similar symptoms in the lower back. I’m not sure I’m less of a dinglehead, though. I’ll add it to 2013 goals. Reply Ho on July 26, 2013 at 9:43 am This makes me feel better. Sorry, but it does. Doug begged off too. 3 DNFs for the 5;30 am crew…we are just so fit!!! Reply laura c on July 26, 2013 at 11:03 am sucks getting old…… Reply Sara C on July 26, 2013 at 6:38 pm I seriously considered a DNF today. The run after round two…my back just seized up and I had to turn around and head back inside. I pulled down a rower and finished up subbing rowing for runs, plus dropped my weight by 10# and did hang power cleans instead of squat cleans. I was proud of knowing my limits…that is definitely a victory for us all today and will keep us coming back rather than lying on the couch recovering from injury. Some days, it’s more about the mental workout than the physical one. Reply Heather V. on July 26, 2013 at 7:25 am Ben: 18:17 Rx Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 7:28 am Super fast… as usual! Reply Kate on July 26, 2013 at 8:38 am Awesome job today! Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:53 am Wow! Reply michelle on July 26, 2013 at 9:11 am So fast!!!

Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 7:27 am Ben: 22:26 (70#) Tried to think of a reason not to come when I heard the rain pelting off the roof at 4:40 am when the alarm went off but fortunately couldn’t come up with one! Reply Tricia D on July 26, 2013 at 8:35 am Great work today. You def kept me moving when I totally wanted to sneak off to my car during a 200. I was in a tough mental space this am, but just kept telling myself to try to keep up with you (or at least keep you in my sight :). Have a nice weekend. Reply Sarah S on July 26, 2013 at 8:40 am Michelene, you’ve become a FIERCE athlete! Reply Andy L on July 26, 2013 at 8:56 am I hear you Michelene! Great job today! Reply Stephanie on July 26, 2013 at 7:49 am Ben: 24:13 (35#) (just a few months ago, I couldn’t even make it to that 200 line more than twice in a row! Love CFNE!) Reply Kate S on July 26, 2013 at 8:13 am awesome Steph!! Reply Suzanne H. on July 26, 2013 at 8:13 am Good work Stephanie! Reply Tricia D on July 26, 2013 at 8:33 am Great job, keep after it!

Reply Rachel E on July 26, 2013 at 8:40 am Way to go, Steph! Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:53 am Nice Stephanie. Reply michelle on July 26, 2013 at 9:14 am Your progress is so impressive!! Awesome, Steph!! Reply Stephanie on July 26, 2013 at 9:40 am Thanks, everyone! (And this is another reason why I love CFNE – all the support is amazing!) Reply Heather V. on July 26, 2013 at 9:52 am Stephanie: u r doing awesome! It was great to meet u the other day! Love your go get’em attitude! Reply Melinda on July 26, 2013 at 10:25 am Yes Stephanie, excellent!!! Reply John G on July 26, 2013 at 11:39 am Oh yea! Reply Susan Stein on July 26, 2013 at 11:54 am Great job Stephanie! You’re doing so awesome! Reply Wendy P on July 26, 2013 at 1:58 pm Way to go Steph!!!! Reply Deb R on July 26, 2013 at 5:53 pm so proud of you girl!!! Reply Mike R on July 26, 2013 at 7:54 am Ben: 21:04 Rx Reply Sarah S on July 26, 2013 at 8:39 am Awesome job Mike, it was fun (trying to) chase you on those runs! Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:53 am Rx, super strong Mike. Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 7:55 am Beat Up By Ben: 25:15 (115#) Runs were slow and fs form was awful. No excuses but average of 5-6 hours of sleep a night doesn’t help. Some awesome performances at the 5:30AM today, people finishing when I was coming in on the 5’s, amazing. I want to be like all of you. Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 8:13 am 19:08rx went unbroken on cleans but still couldn’t hold off the assault by Craig. Great work bud! Also, killer job by the 5:30am getting after it this morning. Reply Big Mike on July 26, 2013 at 8:48 am But I WAS on the leaderboard for about 45 minutes. I’ll take that. I knew you and the rest of the 6:30 would crush this. Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 7:08 pm 3RM BS – 350 10RM BS – 325 Reply Kate S on July 26, 2013 at 8:13 am 16:04 w/ row instead of run Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:54 am lightening! Reply Heather V. on July 26, 2013 at 9:49 am Wow! W/ rowing! Reply Melinda on July 26, 2013 at 10:27 am super fast, nice Kate! Reply Big Mike on July 26, 2013 at 8:29 am Ben: 20:25 Rx Fun to watch how everyone was bounding over and around puddles on the first three runs, and then just straight through them on the last 7. Reply Andy M on July 26, 2013 at 8:54 am Nice job! Reply dennis on July 26, 2013 at 10:54 am That was me – couldn’t have gotten more wet after rnd 3. Reply Marcus on July 26, 2013 at 5:30 pm Nice! Reply Dan T on July 26, 2013 at 8:32 am Ben: 27:13 @ 115# Was on road all week – despite the rain I was so looking forward to this. Last to finish – but felt exhilerating. Also – odd sensation that my mechanics on the squat cleans got better as my exhaustion increased…Thanks for coaching this morning Max – was a great 0530. Have a great day all. Go Team CFNE! Reply Tricia D on July 26, 2013 at 8:32 am Ben: 23:42 (65#) I struggled from jump today. Not sure if it was the rain or the fact that I totally underestimated what a mental challenge that would be. Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 12:55 pm You did amazing today! I always think ‘ok, Tricia can do this so I can do this’ – so thanks for keeping me going!! Reply Sarah S on July 26, 2013 at 8:44 am Ben: 21:24 at 75#. There’s something about sprinting through heavy rain and puddles to make you feel a little more badass, way to go 5:30! Perhaps we were channeling our competitors – good luck this weekend!!! Reply Tricia D on July 26, 2013 at 12:29 pm Haha def true! Great job! Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 1:05 pm Absolutely! Reply Andy L on July 26, 2013 at 8:58 am Ben: 21:03 (#115) Kinda fun running in the rain, great class this morning 530! Reply Colleen (OC) on July 26, 2013 at 9:02 am While Todd and I were giggling at the fact that the mayhemers had to run in the rain while we were nice and dry inside, a part of me was secretly jealous… Awesome job just showing up! Death by Push Up and Sit Up: 1 Push Up & 1 Sit Up on the 1st minute 2 Push Ups & 2 Sit Ups on the 2nd minute, etc. 10 rounds. Got through the push ups on round 11, but not the sit ups. Todd got 12 rounds. Then we thought, “Hey that was so fun, let’s do it again!” So we did! Again, 10 rounds for me (although I finished 11 rounds after), and then Todd got 11 rounds on the 2nd go-round. Reply Katie c on July 26, 2013 at 10:11 am We’re saving your spot up front! took the spot behind and thought of you! We were soaked…but it was fun. Reply Andy L on July 26, 2013 at 1:23 pm Rain made me think of you this morning OC. I knew not ask… and did my first wod in the rain. woot. Reply Judi on July 26, 2013 at 1:54 pm Good workout. Might try it this afternoon. Sounds more entertaining than 100 push-ups, 100 sit ups. So impressed with your and Todd’s dedication! Reply Dan C. on July 26, 2013 at 9:03 am Back Squat 3RM: 315 10RM: 275 Ben: 26:40, best I had today Reply Ali G on July 26, 2013 at 9:29 am Ben: 19:40 RX Reply Heather V. on July 26, 2013 at 9:49 am Nice! Reply michelle on July 26, 2013 at 9:55 am Great job! Reply Craig B. on July 26, 2013 at 9:43 am Ben: 18:20 rx Reply michelle on July 26, 2013 at 10:00 am Ben: 18:xx? :16 I think? 75# & row. My body was talking to me today so I skipped the lifting and lowered the weight. Reply Katie c on July 26, 2013 at 10:09 am Sometimes I find that listening to my body is the most challenging part of any wod. Nice work! Reply Katie c on July 26, 2013 at 10:06 am Ben: 19:53 (80#) Go CFNE Team A! You guys are powerhouses and you’ll attack this competition w/ the same solidarity and strength you always bring to the wods. Go get ”em!! We’ll all be cheering as loud as we can for you.

Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 11:29 am CFNErs who aren’t in Cali, go to http://www.crossfitgames.com for a live feed at noon! GO CFNE! Reply Colleen (OC) on July 26, 2013 at 11:49 am Actually Max, the live feed on the Games site is only for international viewers. You have to go to ESPN3 for the live feed of the team, which of course, if anyone is at work watching it, it’s likely you won’t be able to. This stinks! Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 12:35 pm Haha yes I went to the Crossfit Games site and clicked the link and it brought me to ESPN3.com Reply Colleen (OC) on July 26, 2013 at 12:06 pm If you have cable of any kind, you just have to use your login and password to whatever your online cable website is (ours is Verizon Fios) and then you can watch it. So confusing, but it can be done! Reply Tricia D on July 26, 2013 at 3:54 pm We watched the first event, go CFNE! Keep up the hard work!! Reply Susan Stein on July 26, 2013 at 11:58 am Ben: 20:51 (65#) Thanks for the tip on the squat Doole, totally helped and I get it now! Hips under heels, I’ll be working on it! Great class 9:30. Go get ’em CFNE Team A, so excited to start watching and screaming at my computer in 3 minutes! Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 12:40 pm CFNE Team A finishes event 1 in 9th!!! Hell yes!!! Let’s go guys!!! Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 12:44 pm Having trouble picking them out of the crowd while I multitask. What color and/or #s are they? Reply Max on July 26, 2013 at 12:59 pm Yellow Reply Michelene on July 26, 2013 at 1:31 pm thanks!

Everything from “I am not athletic” to “the smell of this new mulch may make me be the first to puke in it”. The bright side is I def challenged myself bc fell back a few reps and missed them. And I did ALL singles which killed my time. I. AM. FITTER. TODAY fun to watch the feed at the class… Go cfne!! Reply denise sullivan on July 26, 2013 at 4:35 pm you are an amazing relentless athlete!

We also had Hamel as the pace car that we could draft off of. Reply Colleen (C4!) on July 26, 2013 at 3:25 pm Ben 18:33 75# (wrist troubles. I warmed up to 95 but too much of a throb.)

Reply Marcus on July 26, 2013 at 5:35 pm Back Squat: 225×3, 215×10 BEN – 23:10 Rx Easing back into weights coming off back problems/vacation/move. Not sure if BEN is the best way to ease back in from back problems though. Reply Ken K on July 26, 2013 at 6:20 pm Ben- Row That was a grind, but happy to go RX on weight.
