    went super light on deads bc my back is a disaster. The bummer was it got me back to the wall way to fast to do more hspu which became singles quickly. Need to work on these again!

    So proud of CFNE this past weekend. The grit and determination displayed was inspirational and amazing. The work ethic, technique, and the essence of Crossfit I learned at CFNE will always be with me. Within the walls of CFNE is something magical and is very unique to the Crossfit community. I can’t wait to get back at some point!
    Congratulations to the team and Ben!!!

    Congratulations CFNE Competitors. I am in awe of your accomplishments and success!

    Diane: 1 + 34 (145#, box hspu)

    Thank you to whomever programmed today’s workout, “Diane.” Your timing was perfect (for me anyway). I did this workout in honor of my, wife Diane. Today is the anniversary of our first date…yesterday was our wedding anniversary….so how could I not do this one…In fact, every time Diane is the work out I have and will always do it in her honor.

    • Heather O

      You are so sweet! This just brought tears to my eyes. I am sure she just loves this.

    • Jenny C

      She was watching and cheering for you John!

    • Alison

      What a fun way to remember and honor Diane!

    • Katie Chiappinelli

      You and Diane built such a beautiful life together and she’ll keep finding ways to let you know that she’s walking right by your side.

  17. Congrats to the Team, Big Bri, Bubba, Jerry and Ben!! U guys were amazing!

    Diane 1+60 HSPU were the tough part for me.
    Snatch 5RM TnG 145 and stopped there. no C+J. Sprained ankle.

    Soooo last week I sprained my toe when I jokingly kicked a 20# med ball. Today, I sprained my ankle messing around playing basketball during the 9:30 warm ups. Im a mess right now. Moral to the story. MEssing around in the gym = injury fo’ sho’

    • Laura c

      Well, I can relate as I hurt my already sore wrist last week during warm up bc I “deflected” the med ball… Think “setting” the ball in volleyball. I was screwing around and it screwed me up big time! Those med balls are the devils work!

    • Maureen B.

      Aww Doole. I’ll send ya some more weird stickers to cheer ya up.
