We topped this past week with “Barbells for Boobs”, which is a great cause. We had several participants and raised a little over $6,000.00. Plus the Ravens just lost, which is a great ending for any week!

So, tell me again how CrossFit isn’t a Team Sport?Image

WOD:

Helen Meets Grace

Two-person team workout with one person working at a time, except for the 400m runs, which must be performed together.

  • THREE rounds of:
  • 400 meter run
  • 21 kettlebell swings (Rx 53/35#)
  • 12 pull-ups
  • 30 clean and jerks (Rx 135/95#)

Eric and I did it in 16:24. The run was the worst part, it just adds a lot of time for me, because, well, I hate running.

I was really proud of everyone who participated today. Everyone worked hard. I heard a few people set PR’s with the clean and jerks. Nice to see!

There are three weeks left for Whole Life Challenge and I think we are all buckling down and making a big push to get the most out of the last three weeks. We cheated on Friday night and had a few beers with some friends. We both woke up Saturday morning and agreed we were good for another few weeks. I definitely feel better and am not in a hurry to go back to the old ways any time soon. I think we’ll stick with it for a while after it is over.
