Reply Andy M. on October 8, 2013 at 2:30 pm That’s fast, nice work. Reply Andy M on October 8, 2013 at 7:53 am Casey Jones: 11:24 (205#) That was a good one. Reply Jen W on October 8, 2013 at 8:05 am Casey Jones: 11:08 Rx. I worked on only doing rebounding box jumps today. The whole thing felt slow.

Next time! Reply Sam on October 8, 2013 at 10:57 am speedy gonzales this morning, Heather!! Reply Andy M. on October 8, 2013 at 2:31 pm I’d take 6:58 Rx, nice job. Reply Sara C on October 8, 2013 at 6:10 pm Yeah, you’ve got work to do alright. How could you do this SO SLOWLY? I mean, only 6 minutes faster than my time. Next time, I expect more from you, young lady. Reply Alison on October 8, 2013 at 7:06 pm She’s really slacking off these days. Reply Heather V on October 8, 2013 at 9:27 pm Funny!!! Reply Colleen (OC) on October 8, 2013 at 8:47 am Casey Jones: 9:02, with 65#. I would love to go with higher weight, but I always pay for it when I do. When I go lighter, I still get a great workout and I am not sidelined for a week. Only stopped once in the first set of t2bs, so that felt good! Reply Sam on October 8, 2013 at 10:56 am SMART!! I hear ya—I have to take extra time on DL’s to make sure to set my back, and usually have to drop it in between, just to ensure I keep midline tight and dont hurt back. Reply Tricia D on October 8, 2013 at 2:01 pm smart woman, great job. Reply Jonathan M on October 8, 2013 at 8:58 am Casey Jones: 12:44, 205# Reply Greg D on October 8, 2013 at 9:01 am Casey Jones: 7:28 (205#) Reply Andy M. on October 8, 2013 at 2:31 pm Nice job Greg! Reply Brook R on October 8, 2013 at 9:10 am Casey Jones: 12:10 Rx I strung some t2bs together in warm up, but lost it for the WOD. Another goat to add to my herd. Reply Rachel E on October 8, 2013 at 9:19 am Casey Jones: 10:47 (135#) DLs continue to be my nemesis…but thanks for the OTM homework, Rachel!

Reply Michelene on October 8, 2013 at 9:46 am Casey Jones: 11:29 (110# and mostly K2E) Those toes to bar continue to elude me. One of these days… Thank you Sarah S. for giving me some tips after class. I will get those suckers one of these days! Today is my one year anniversary at CFNE so I feel compelled to say a few words about one of my very favorite places in the whole world. I knew absolutely nothing about CrossFit before I walked in that first day. I came with a couple of friends to do elements (with MDV and Ashley) and I seriously thought we were going to some class at Longfellow. When I saw all the barbells, and the crazy-fit people, I almost turned around and walked right back out the door. But fortunately I didn’t drive so I was stuck which turned out to be a really good thing. The WOD (my 1st) from 10/8/12 was Snatch work and “Nancy” which I think MDV only let me do 3 rounds of. I was so intimidated that first day but I quickly got over it when I realized what a supportive and encouraging group the Mayhemers are. Now I am completely hooked! Everyone already knows how fantastic the coaches and members are – truly amazing people – and what a special place the Bergerons have created in CFNE so I don’t need to say much more about that. When I come here it is like hitting a reset button. I forget about everything else for an hour and walk out feeling like I can tackle anything. And more importantly, the reason I was so scared of the barbells was because of back pain that I had been dealing with for more than a decade and was getting worse. Fast forward a year and the pain is virtually gone. I feel like I’m 25 again! So thank you and I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! Reply Kristin R on October 8, 2013 at 10:46 am Happy CFNEversary, Michelene! Reply Dave C. on October 8, 2013 at 10:52 am Awesome Michelene and happy anniversary! Reply Sam on October 8, 2013 at 10:54 am cheers to you, Michelene. What a difference a year makes–huh? you are doing great!!! Reply Big Mike on October 8, 2013 at 10:57 am Congrats Michelene…..your official Mayhemer Anniversary Pin has been shipped! Just don’t wear it when we do C2B’s. Reply Colleen (OC) on October 8, 2013 at 11:19 am Congrats Michelene! So cool to hear that your back pain went away! Sweet! Reply Tricia D on October 8, 2013 at 11:31 am Happy Anniversary!!!! You not only feel great, but you def look great too! So glad you found this place too :). Reply laura c on October 8, 2013 at 11:42 am Happy Ani Michelene! I too almost did not do CF b/c of back pain – I am never going to be painfree but it has not hurt it anymore then pre CF!! So we will keep doing it! Reply Susan Stein on October 8, 2013 at 12:39 pm Happy Anniversary Michelene! Reply Sarah S. on October 8, 2013 at 12:54 pm Congratulations Michelene!! Reply Andy M. on October 8, 2013 at 2:33 pm Happy anniversary Michelene and congrats on all your accomplishments; glad you are part of the 5:30am Mayhemers. Reply Sarah W on October 8, 2013 at 2:51 pm I like what you bring to the 5:30. Had no idea you started CF only a year ago. You seem like a pro. Reply Lynne Mc on October 8, 2013 at 5:41 pm Congratulations! Reply Heather V on October 8, 2013 at 6:38 pm Congrats! Reply Michelene on October 8, 2013 at 6:40 pm You guys are the best. The best. place. EVER! Reply Alison on October 8, 2013 at 7:06 pm Congratulations on all of your accomplishments! Reply Dave C. on October 8, 2013 at 9:54 am Casey Jones: 7:10 Rx Tried the sotts press but form was abysmal. Worked on holding perfect squat form in the hole instead. Thanks Ben. Awesome to work with my old 0830 crew again this morning! And glad to have another mayhemer (Sarah W) join me as well. Reply Sarah W on October 8, 2013 at 11:14 am Aw yeah! You killed it, dude.

Reply JoeV on October 8, 2013 at 10:15 am At NorCal… Started with the push up version of Bring Sally Up OTM10 body weight: 3 kipping HSPU with 3 abmats 5 rounds: 50 air squats + 50 double unders (scaled these to 25, and happy with that) Reply Deb R on October 8, 2013 at 10:20 am Casey Jones: 10:25 (115#) Reply Sarah W on October 8, 2013 at 10:43 am CJ: 7:21 at 125# Reply Sam on October 8, 2013 at 10:49 am speedy, Sarah! Reply laura c on October 8, 2013 at 11:43 am wowzers. So awesome to see your bright and smiling face! Reply Sam on October 8, 2013 at 10:49 am Casey Jones: 10:49 with 155#, 24″ box jumps, all toes to bar Felt very slowed down by the box jumps today. Also, have not done DL in a while, so, also took some extra time to set my back well. Stayed a bit after class to do some more T2B(like it wasn’t enough in the WOD–lol) and was able to for first time link 5 consecutive T2B. Need to do this in the WOD, as it really does make the work more efficient. Always fun to be at the bright and early 5:30 am class! Reply Kristin R on October 8, 2013 at 10:50 am Casey Jones: 10:22 with 85# DLs and step ups (I know, I know, Heather V). DLs felt heavy in warm up but I definitely should have gone heavier. Next time! Reply Heather V on October 8, 2013 at 10:52 am Ha! Reply Wendy P on October 8, 2013 at 10:51 am Casey Jones: 9:37.

Going to put on my tank top, get a tattoo of kitten on my neck and head over to Planet Fitness…it’s just $10/month.

Now back to my “professional development” day. Reply Taxi on October 8, 2013 at 11:45 am CJ: 9:53 @ 205# and 20″ box jumps (but half were steps) and T2Bs were really knees to chest.

I actually got them in the warm up and for the first 10 or so in the WOD. MUCH easier when you get the knees up and then do the kick. Now I just need to hang on to them for an entire WOD :). Thanks!!
