    • You too! Good to give each other a little push in a Sunday morning. And naming me in that post just pushed me to post on here for the first time (happy Max?). So while I’m here… FS- 155, Weighted Pull-ups- climbing to 63, weighted sit ups- climbing to 50#.

  15. Ran 4 miles this morning. It went better than it did two weeks ago. It was slow, but I made it.

  16. A HUGE CONGRATS to Amie, Sara C and Heather V for their Title IX tri accomplishments today!

    Vineyard Warrior Olympic Triathlon: 2:56:11…wicked slow for the distance, but everyone suffered on the swim with a monster current…and red jellyfish, watch out!

    The good thing about Mother Nature is that everyone is dealing with the same conditions. Not everyone is a CFNE crossfitter though. Mental toughness and pushing through the challenging physical spots earned a first place finish in the 21-30 age group! Again, I would never have achieved this accomplishment without my CFNE family.

  17. FS: 5 @ 105, 5 @ 110#.
    PU: first set at 10#, last sets at 7#
    Sit ups: 15#

    Fun lifting with you today OC!

  18. FS: 10 x 95# and 1 @ 105# for good measure (happens to be a PR for me, too!)
    strict PU’s with blue band equivalent
    Sit Ups @ 15#

  19. Did my first tri today — the Hopkinton Title IX for women. This was actually my FIRST EVER organized athletic competition (unless you count high school swim meets in which I’m pretty sure I came in DFL every time). 400m swim, 10 mile bike, 5k run. I finished in 1:35 am and super happy with that. I am absolutely blown away by how much my CF training helped me with this race. I’m pretty sure that prior to CF, I would never have even thought about doing a tri, nor would I have had what it took to finish, let alone finish strong. Not only does CF make our muscles stronger, our running faster, etc., but it also teaches us so well how to push through pain (it’s temporary…) and to be comfortable with odd transitions between movements. When someone asked me my motivation for doing this, I said it’s because I wanted to prove to myself that I am an athlete after all. And, as Greg Glassman says, I wanted to use my CF training to “learn and play new sports.” Mission accomplished!

    HUGE congrats to Heather Vitti and Amie Stowe who did the tri as well and kicked my ass in the process. And to Amanda Klein, who did a brutal tri today on the Vineyard and came in FIRST in her age category. Way to rock it, ladies!

  20. FS: 215#
    Pull up: 30# first set, 35# remaining four,
