Don’t laugh too hard. We all did stuff like this before we found CrossFit… right?

    nope. Can’t do it. Can’t come up with anything that won’t offend. I’ll let Emily handle this one.

    haha…thanks Kev…unfortunately most everything I really wanted to say would offend as well.

    What I want to know is….is there a mirror on this globo gym ceiling? 🙂 I never really worked out before Crossfit…but is that even normal?

    I am in mcall Idaho opening a pizzeria for a client and vistied there local cf. the wod today was 21-15-9- of box job,kb,SHDL,witha 400 meter run or 500meter row in between. Very nice people and good training,but i have to say we are all very lucky to have the trainers we have and especially russell.The trainers were good but not on the same level of ours. We have some of the best in the world. O and there 7am class is much nicer then ours.

    OMG!!! I was just talking to Gus about last night’s WOD and I realized that I was doing 10 back squats instead of 7 the entire time!!! So that means that my 5 rounds plus 8 squats could have been at least 6 rounds plus something…LOL. This is the second time I’ve done this on a WOD! Oh and BTW, where are my 5:30 girls–Emily and Tracy?!?!?!

    • Emily D. says:

      haha…we were both there on Wednesday!!!

    4:55 as rx’d – Thanks to Tommy for pushing me on that last sprint to help me get sub 5. I screwed up the snatches on the first round by dropping them and lost time because of that, but I figured it out for the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Good WOD. I liked it.

    Funny moment from 7AM class: I brought my girls with me this morning and they didn’t see where I went for the 400M warm up, so when I got back, they were crying. I had to laugh. Does that make me sick? I guess they were missing their daddy. 🙂

    Rob Orlando is not human.

  12. Robb Dempsey says:

    5:31 – sprint became a shuffle

  13. tracey says:

    5:25 ….I think I did those hip thrusters before,except I used dumbbells. LOL!!
    Hey I was a globo queen for years. It was supposed to make ur butt really round. Hahahaha.

    • Emily D. says:

      well you do have a nice butt….maybe I will start thrusting my way to a better booty!! haha!

  14. Katherine Berger says:

    Tracey, that is HYSTERICAL!!!!!!!!

    And I LOVE this picture Slade!

    Thanks to all the ladies who came up last night! We had a great turnout and a lot of fun!!!!

    If you didn’t make it, be sure to catch us next month! It’s a great way to get to know ech other outside the gym…and to learn to recognize your fellow crossfitters when they aren’t drenched in sweat 🙂

    • Emily D. says:

      Thanks for having us Kat!! Bless Russell for letting his house be filled with ladies and lots and lots of wine 🙂

    3:37 – need to do more shuttle run type things. Ran hard but held back due to perceived need to pace but since this is the first time with a shuttle run in a long, long time I’d like to experiment with running efforts to try to find the right mix of pacing and exertion. — this is the type of crap that makes crossfit fun

  16. Karen says:

    5:21 with 200 meter rows, instead of the sprints.

  17. Jake Naumcheff says:


    Thanks for the push Tracey

  18. Kerri says:

    Rx’ed: 5:35….was chasing Trace again, but didn’t quite make it!

    Gonna be a tough hero WOD tomorrow!! Especially with a Surin Splurge tonight, prepping for yet another long-term strict challenge starting on Monday!!!
