    16s slower than last time, but my legs are still wrecked from front squats Wednesday. Got the first 50 unbroken, but I broke up the last three sets quite a bit. I’m not sure my quads have ever been this sore.

    Kick some ass at the games russell. Those events look like they’ll suit you pretty well.

    First WOD ever!

    11:52 as rxd.

    Recently accepted a job in Huntsville, and I really want to get involved with Crossfit Huntsville when I get moved in this August.

  4. Zak says:

    13:30…. a horrible and painful 13:30. My legs felt like they gave up after the first round.

  5. Katie says:

    14:15 felt horrible during but pretty good afterwards!

    I so wish I were there!

    Every step and every squat hurt. I actually do feel a little better after this WOD, but I am still in a lot of pain from the front squats.

    I am not hearing a ton of interest in the Sunday games. Therefore, this is my plan (only 2 WODs):

    Noon — CF Games deadlift workout. In short, it is a lot of deadlifting in a short amount of time. Check the games site if you want to get specifics. Could definitely use some folks to help each other with this one.
    6pm — trail run up the trail at the top of Cecil Ashburn Rd. I have not done this route, but I hear it is a good climb.

    Let me know if you will be at the trail run so I can look for you. Join up if you like.

  14. Katherine Berger says:

    3rd place in the run after spealler! He’ll yeah!!!

  15. Daniel says:

    Kat, update the blog often. It will automatically post to twitter as well.

  17. Katherine Berger says:

    Pulled 405. Passed spealler by three lifts I think.

  18. Zak says:

    Guess i was wrong about people not completing all the DL’s. Josh Everett and Jason Khalipa both have so far. Khalipa was 2nd to last on the run as well.

  19. Zak says:

    Shit 11 competitors at 505 for the DL

  20. Zak says:

    That’s what I have been saying. I think they screwed the pooch with the DL event. The people that put the games together didn’t think anyone would reach 505 and then they had 11 do it.

  21. Zak says:

    So Everett is not in the top 5 after all.

  22. Michael says:

    Listening to the CF radio thing…stake drive sounds pretty crazy, should be interesting though.

  25. Daniel says:

    Looks like there r going to be slot of ties in the run as well.

  26. Zak says:

    This is the most updated feed that I’ve found.

  27. Katherine Berger says:

    Great job on hill run but lost sandbag right before fjnish. Picked up quickly and got second in heat– 23rd overll. Also, to clarify, 16 got 505 and tied for first in dl. Everett slowed bigtime in hill run.

  28. James Lambert says:

    Thanks for the update Katherine. Keep it up Russell.

  29. Zak says:

    Jesus….. 16?!?

  30. Michael says:

    Kinda messed up that so many people got away with only 1 point from that event, but I guess we’ll see how it pans out.

  31. James Lambert says:

    Russell is in 30th after the first 3 events

  32. Michael says:

    “fucking terrible run” – Russell Berger

  34. Kerri says:

    He’s on!

  35. Zak says:

    Craig just sent me a text Russell finished 16 out of 20 in his heat…. it ended up being a big man’s event.

  36. Katherine Berger says:

    Russeell did great at the row/hammer. Lots of guys lost it mentally and took way too long with the hammer. Great row and hammered well. Paced with much bigger guys. Ahead ofspealler and Everett. Few more to go but he is around 20th

  38. Brad says:

    Damn good job Russell. Just dig deep for the next couple events. You can rest when its over.

  39. Daniel says:

    Anyone get results from the last wod yet?

  40. J.D. says:

    Awesome Russell! Keep it up!

    I was at the lake Friday and had to make up my own course. I was WAY off on the distance– took about 23 minutes to do the workout. But better too much than too little.
