Mike G doesn’t always cry when he front squats 205#, but when he does it’s at the ECC with his shirt off.

Don’t cry, Mike. What did you think was going to happen? You have never appreciated me. I need to be with someone that values me and appreciates me for who and what I am. For years, I have tried to be a part of your life, tried to take an active role in your hobbies and interests, and still you ignore me. If this is what it takes so that you treat your next shirt right, then so be it. I’ll always remember you, but this is good-bye. Good-bye, Mike. Forever.
Actually this was my bad, got caught when the crease of the hips went below the crease of the crotch. Kind of got all tangled up in taintland.
“Tangled up in taintland” sounds like the worst/best country song ever.
Hilarious. Can someone come up with a WOD called Tangled Up in Taintland?
I will start pushing for this right away.
Well, at least I’m still here and looking good!!!
SHIRTS for the kids in Kenya….PLEASE, bring in just $10 so we can reach our goal of sending 100 shirts to our school in Guro. We are over half way there but really need your help. We will be collecting all week but why not put that $10 in your workout bag NOW so you don’t forget? Thanks everyone!
you should ask Ben if you can charge my CFNE account……..
Hi Everyone, Sunday is the second annual Pine Hill School 5K. The race takes place in beautiful Sherborn, just over the Natick line. The course winds around Farm pond and will give you a good chance to do some leaf peeping. Funds raised will go to enrichment at the school. The registration link is above and just let me know if you have questions. Thanks!
Just signed up.. Thanks Jen!
This is a good benchmark 5K. Fair course with some rollers thrown in on safe roads. Come out to Sherborn and represent CFNE. Where’s my 830 crew?!
Bonus: Post-race swim in Farm Pond to soothe the calf muscles.

The Good Life: 13:34.
14 seconds slower than a few weeks ago but I felt better for what it’s worth.
great job, today, Erin!
The Good Life: 10:09 Rx (29 sec PR)
So that was the blur next to me… great job!

Crazy fast, Dave! Nice!!
Woah. That’s like super fast, dude. (In my best valley girl voice.)
Nice work – flyin’
nice work, Dave!
The Good Life: 12:56 Rx
The Good Life: 12:16 (2:30 PR)
In the class is much better than on my own in the back. I also lost 2″ off my waist and 1+% body fat.
OTM for 8: 5 TTBs & 10 double unders. I switched to 15 DUs in the fourth round. Also did 80DUs after.
Oh, Rx. And today was the first time I felt like I really pushed hard all the way through; I took no breaks. A major victory for me.
Well done, Jen.
Nice PR Jen!!
huge PR .. nice work! and congrats on challenge results
Hard work pays off – way to go!
Great job, Jen! Big progress.
Way to go Jen!

The Good Life: 13:11 (:38 second pr)
Awesome Jon – great improvement
Great job on the 24″ rebounds
The Good Life – 13:55 Rx
thanks for counting and resetting the rower Doc.
The Good Life: 11:55 Rx
For those of you keeping score, yes I lost again. But my second row was impaired by a monitor that would not start so the gap was not as wide as it will appear.
At least when I do lose, it requires that he rolls around on the floor for a few minutes. When he starts walking away-back to Zumba.
The tee box is yours Mr. Ho.
Thank you Obama.
Both of your posts were hilarious today. But I have to ask, what does “Thank you Obama” mean?
I guess a lame attempt at political humor…blaming him for the fact that I suck at box jumps.
The Good Life: 12:10. Slower by 28 seconds than in Sept. Rats.
The Good Life: 14:03
The Good Life: 12:55 RX.
Struggled on my second and third rows. Next time I’m going to try and take less time standing on top of the box.
Thanks for counting Lisa!
The Good Life: 11:24 Rx
OTM x 8: 5-10 TTB + 20 DUs
Mike, I think people stopped keeping score a while back. Seems kindof pointless and mean at this point, no? If I may offer some advice that has worked well for me: when in doubt, be better.
You’re welcome. Also, I think you pee’d all over the box during your box jumps. Might wanna get that checked out. Whatever you’re going through, I got your back.
….not nice…but kinda funny!
It wasn’t pee, those were tears of sorrow
The Good Life: 12:21 rx (exact same time as September — felt slowwww today)
OTM x 8: 5 TTB + 10DU
The Good Life 13:19 (59 sec PR from 9/4)
Need to work on coming off the box jumps
Great PR Stephan – that is awesome improvement in 4 weeks!
Nice work bro! Way to kill it.
Thanks for the push Craig B! You’re a box jump ninja!
Great 6:30 class. Thanks, Harry and Rachel!
Good lord that’s fast. You were flying!
Man that’s fast.
Your’e a Stud!!
u still got it!!!
Luckily for you BJs favor small guys.
The Good Life: 12:06 (2 sec pr)
met my goal of holding the line while traveling for most of the month.
NIce work Rick! Any PR is a good PR.
1. The Good Life – 11:18 Rx (50 secs faster than last time)
2. OTM 8 – 10 TTB + 20 DU = Unbroken except Round 8
The Good Life 14:39 (20#). 49 seconds faster than last time…I’ll take it! My legs are feeling very wobbly.
Much faster …
great job, John!
The Good Life- 12:20 ….modified… 400 m run, 12 GHD, 21 BJ- I am a bit bummed- I couldn’t do it RX and compare times… Had to make smart decisions today.
You know, I was thinking this morning that you often see people sub rowing for running but rarely the other way around. You are the exception to the rule.
And hey – did you get a good workout this morning? That’s all that matters.
had to do the same, Wendy. no shoulder work for at least another week. I was also bummed that I could not do a comparison…..but, it’s best to be smart! see you soon
The Good Life 13:51 (20″).My burpees sucked bad. No clue what i did the last time. Just happy to make it through.
The Good Life: 10:33 RX 7 secs faster
OTMx8 Even 10 T2Bahhs, odd 5 squat therapy
Nice Job 6:30am!!
Mike G…………Funniest pic EVER!!!
The Good Life: 10:56, 1:11 PR
OTM x8: 5-10 TTB + 15-20 DU’s
The good life. 16:02. 4 plates for BJ R1, 3 plates R2&3
The Good life(with subs): 500 meter run–went out of CFNE up hill around parkin lot and back. Felt like more than 500….15 sit ups, and 21 box jumps at 24″.
took me 16 something.
I usually have a hard time waking up in the 5:30 am class, but, today, it felt great. Self imposed paleo/eat better/get more sleep challenge. 26 days until my first competition. Need to prepare for what I can control.
The good life’s: 12:44 – ran 400’s instead of ROW.
I hesitated with the sub b/c I DISLIKE rowing so much but my bicep is bugging me again and felt it in warm up – So I happily ran (and I am not a fast runner but better than rowing for sure!!!!).
I def picked up the pace on the BJ – I have been stepping down for over a year and today I did “rebounding” ish = not sure the rebound was correct but I tried and did not step down so that is progress!!!
Then got a call to pick up my daughter from school b/c she was sick so no post work:(!
Amazing as usual
I can just picture you trying to chase D down, DAMN I miss that.
I echo your sentiments!
That would’ve been fun to watch!
If I can ever shake my latest injury you know all to well(plantar fasciitis) I’ll finally get back to the 6:30a and see those rockstars duel again!!!
Great job Craig & Big D!!!
Good Life 12:55, 22 cals on AD instead of row, rest Rx
The Good Life: 11:21 w step ups
Nice woding with you Ally G. You crushed it!!
great job woman!
You both crushed that!
The Good Life:
12:27 jump up/step down is this RX? Haven’t done this one before so nothing to compare it to.
Bob R: 10:29 RX I think…
yes – as long as you jump up with full extension at the top, it is RX
That’s what I do . . . so yes.
The Good Life: 13:38 Rx (45 sec PR) thought it was a whole minute…still happy though!
Um, close enough. Nice PR!
The Good Life: 13:08 Rx (25 sec PR from a month ago) Lots of areas where I can improve, but I feel like I left it all out there on this one.
you looked like you gave it your all – whimpering and all:! Nice job!
The Good Life: 11:02 RX
the good life: 12:11 Rx (exactly 1 minute PR! from last month!)
well done, Marissa!
the good life: 12:32 with 24″ step ups.
Did the same thing about a month ago, but this time a little over 2 minutes faster.
The Good Life: 11:55 Rx
First Rx WOD in months!
And you won the first round of burpees
The Good Life: I think it was 14:30. A full minute faster than last time.
Saw a great message:
Eat plants or things that eat plants. Avoid eating things that are manufactured in plants!
The Good Life: 10:12 RX plus 24 box jumps instead of 21 on rounds 1 and 2 due to my poor listening skills
So wait – you did more and were still hovering around 10 minutes?!
All the prs today are so impressive- way to kill it Cfne!
The Good Life: 13:29- slower than first time. I had a plan, pace row, do step up burpees, rebound bjs. Way over thought it. Next time, no plan- just move – and get after it – with everything.
Ttb/20 du otm x 8: scaled to 15 then to 10 dus per minute.
The Good Life: 12:14 Rx
The Good Life: 13:50 rx

The Good Life-12:22

The Good Life: 10:14 Rx (5 second PR)
Earlier this morning
5 x 5 Back Squat @ 235#
OTM x 8: 10 TTB + 10-20 DU – TTB were good, DUs were horrible!
On a positive note, I survived the Paleo Team Challenge and achieved the following results:
– Lost 8 lbs
– Lost 1.5 in. off my waist
– Lost 1.6% body fat
damn son! nice job.
Strong and Fast….nice combo!
Oh just quit it!! I bet you stayed at a Holiday Inn last night and saved 15% on your car insurance too!!
Serously though…..Nice job!
The Good Life. 12:38 30 second pr. Scaled to step ups both times
