    QOD: Goals for the open: Enjoy the competition atmosphere and have fun with the workouts; finish in the top 100 in the Southeast; contribute to CFHSV making it to regionals as a team; help our athletes make it through the 5 week timeframe with a positive mindset and the goal to finish it out strong.

    QOD: To end better than the 7569th fittest man in the world (last year’s finish). I’m going to enjoy pushing myself through the competition WODs.

    QOD: Just hoping to have fun, get a better idea of my strengths/weaknesses and of course I hope to contribute to CFHSV making it to Regionals as a team!

  7. David says:

    Have fun and try to do everything Rx’ed. Please no muscle ups, Please no muscle ups, pleas…..

    Well, it looks like surgery is in my immediate future, so I won’t be doing the Open.

    But if we’re stating our future plans, I hope to learn from my mistakes and be a better man today than I was yesterday. And not just at Crossfit. 😉

    • Jamie says:

      Sorry to hear Slade. Get better! I see air squats in your future!

      QOD: This will be my first Open. I’ll be happy to contribute to CFHSV’s team score as well as learn more about my strengths and weaknesses. I want to push my body a little harder every day to become the machine I know is underneath all of this awesomeness. Oh, and to not cry from pain or puke while smiling and enjoying all of the fabulous athletes that make up our community.

      • The Bone Spur Kid says:

        You said it took about three weeks for you to start using your arm again. This joker today said 12! I hope you’re right and not him. 🙁

  9. Matthew Hillis says:

    QOD: Do have fun and enjoy the thrill of competition.

  10. DaveC says:

    QOD: My goal with the Open this year is to achieve a valid score for all the events, which I was unable to do last year. That’s dependent on my shoulder holding somewhat together for that long (trying to hold off an ac-joint refurbish for 6 more weeks).

  11. Ben Jarrell says:

    QOD: I would like to be able to finish every workout as RX’ed, so I can have an actual ranking, whatever that may be. Last year I had to scale one or two of them, and so I didn’t get to see where I placed.

  12. Josh Kennedy says:

    16:30 today, scaled to 25# DB. My hips and low back do not like that DB squat-snatch
    QOD: a) complete every WOD Rx, b) somehow contribute to a CFHSV team qualifying for regionals, c) enjoy the crowd and the comradery, and d) try not to hurt myself!

  13. AP says:


    Triple dose of awesomeness at the lunch class: saw a lot of new faces, which hopefully is a statement of CFHSV’s growth (check), Robert is back (check, check) AND got to wod with Josh G (triple check).

    QOD: My thoughts exactly, Mr. Kennedy

  14. Clair says:

    QOD: I look forward to the excitement of the competition and pushing myself more!

  15. Brady says "Rx that Bitch" says:

    QOD: Get through all WODs Rx’d and believe we can all make it further than last year!

  16. Patrick says:

    12:02 Rx

  17. Sky says:

    Long run day today. 4mi 37:15; yikes that’s slow.

    Is nobody in this open thing for the t-shirt?
