  1. Katherine / Josh / Russell / Anyone…

    Is the 12PM class definitely cancelled? Is there any other class? I’m over at the Matrix working today, but was going to go the 4pm class. Just actually looked at the schedule and noticed that there is only the 9am and 12pm. Is there the 11am intro class? Could I sneak in then?

    Thanks, Pat

    2mile run – 12donuts – 2mile run – 34:30 – 4th overall but 1st place due to having to wait for a freight train to pass. Winner on a technicality but I’ll take it! 🙂

    It wasn’t the running but the donut eating where I totally DOMINATED!!!! 12 down in about 3 minutes (maybe less).

    Number of emetic episodes thus far – 4

      Your ability to take “the pain” was phenomenal. I haven’t puked yet… such a puss, I am.

    Re: Food, Inc. – I have that movie and will leave a few copies at the gym for whoever wants to view it. For those that know….it is also available in bit torrent land…..just sayin’

  5. Hooked up with Dan and Krista and completed the workout on the green mat

    34:20 – no weight, 5-sec handstands…just unbelievably slow, but still working on the form. Thanks again Dan for your help. Can’ wait to try negatives on the next go-around of handstands.

    Great job to all you donut runners, wish I could have been there.

    Donut run in 38:26. I think I made it in the top 20 even with stuck behind the train with Kevin. I managed to get all 12 donuts down in 6 minutes, but I think Kevin ate all 12 under 2 minutes. I made to krispy kreme a little before him, saw him turning his donuts into hot dog like shapes, turned around, and he was gone.

    Did DL WOD yesterday at CF Revolution in Brandon, FL. 315, 335, 335, 335, 345, 365f, 365f. Now my squats are officially equal to my DL. It sucks that my DL has been going down.
    See you guys next week.

  8. Katherine Berger says:

    No HSPUs and I decided that I have gained enough weight to constitute a weighted pull-up:) so I went with it.


    Followed by yoga! Thanks to everyone who came and good job guys who completed the donut run!

    QuadCity CrossFit-Team of 5 doing:
    400 WBS
    400 Push-ups
    400 Box Jumps
    400 SDHP

    This was a cool concept that they do on Saturdays….team workouts.
    We actually did Tabata-air squats as warm-up; resting in the bottom of the squat..KILLER!
    I think he called it B2B Tabata, or something like that….Thanks to Josiah and Brandon for a great affiliate visit.

    • Kerri says:

      Great job Tracey!!! Leader of the pack!! Looks like CF Huntsville represented all over the Southeast today!!!! Way to go! REALLY wish I could’ve been there to witness the Donut Run though….

      40:24, yep…you’d have smoked my skinny ass.

    17:20 20# pullups

    I just watched Food Inc. a couple of days ago. It is interesting stuff, and seems to solidify my belief that it is much better for me and my family to buy from the farm up the road than to buy stuff from these factory farms. However, in light of the recent discussion about oragnics on here I looked for some research. One specific thing I remember from the movie was that grass fed beef has much less Ecoli in it’s gut. I have searched for the original study that found this, but about all I can find on it is that it may have been a poorly ran study. It has been confirmed by other studies since the orignal. Anyone have any info on this?

    If this happens to be true, I would think that the information that Russell posted about an increased risk of Ecoli in organic produce would be diminished when grass fed animals are involved in the process and care is taken by the farmer to minimize contamination of the produce. I can see how organic produce could result in a higher ecoli risk simply due to the fact that the animals that the fertilizer comes from can be legally considered organic and still be fed “organic” grain rather than their intended grazing diet. This grain based diet organic or not, according to the research used in the movie will produce a higher concentration on Ecoli in cattle.

    All in all the way we get our food today is NASTY!

    • Patrick says:

      All in all, the way we get our meat has always been nasty. Ever slaughtered a cow the old fashioned way? Shoot a grain fed steer in the head, string it from a sturdy tree, and get to work. Pretty nasty stuff. I’ll take the pretty plastic wrap and styrofoam trays. We’ve had cows as long as I can remember, helped slaughtered a few myself. Give me the Kroger variety any day. Just give me the protein.

    • Robert S. says:

      A good point, Patrick. Slaughtering a cow, deer, dove, chicken, or any animal is nasty work. To answer your question, I have obtained my meat the old fashioned way on several occasions. However, the animal was not raised in such unhealthy environments, and I make an effort not to contaminate the meat. Not so much can be said for the industrial slaughter houses. Maybe I am reading way too much into it, and I can’t say that even with all of my ranting about this that I eat only grass fed animals. I buy 99% of my meat at Costco or Kroger and enjoy every minute of eating it.

  13. Justin says:

    21-15-9 handstand pushups and strict pullups at home then 15 minutes of almost futile double under practice.
    Didn’t really feel like running any more today, but I needed the hspu work.

  14. Garth says:

    16:57 with 35# DB, which is what I had in my garage. Did this at the good pull-up bar next to the track at MacDill Air Force Base here in FL. Good mix of exercises.

  15. Daniel says:

    At the Matrix with a 25# which may have been a little light for me. I was able to do 5 butterfly kipping pull-ups in a row with this weight. I didn’t really time myself. Started a timer, but I was stopping and playing with my kids on several occasions. It was a good first time back workout after taking a nearly week off with a cold, so I took it easy.

  16. Patrick says:

    The Krispy Kreme Challenge was one of the worst things I’ve ever. Had no idea eating a dozen donuts would be so painful. Never saw Kevin after “The train”, but watched Justin pound some dough. I was able to get down 8 then, squished the last 4 together and started walking back. Threw about 1/2 that last stack of donuts away and started running. Finished at 1:001:00. So…Failed the challenge. Figure I ate 10 donuts. The experience was horrible. I’m already dreading next year.

  17. Sunday WOD:

    3 rounds at 135# (80% of BW: 170)

    …off to the Jingle Bell 5k…this is going to be fun after that WOD.

  19. 26:20 at Jingle Bell…PR…the legs do not want to do this day over again any time soon.
