    Anyone heard of almond flour? Is this an ok substitute for wheat?

    14:07 I’m the tortoise of the group, but these workouts make even a tortoise feel good.
    ( But not like the tortoise seen on Jay Leno last night–did anyone see that poor
    sob? hilarious)

    9:21 kettle bells all unbroken. 1st round of pullups unbroken. Run was a little slow. Room for improvement, but a good showing. Slade was on my heels the first 2 rounds then he dropped off on the 3rd. Good job slade.

    Swings unbroken. Pull ups still my slow part.

  13. Clint says:

    9:05 I did this with Larry L, he smoked me every turn of every run. Run still needs some specific attention but much improved over my last time. Minutes better.

    8:36

    Felt pretty good. I never dropped from the pullup bar, but I could have linked them a little better.

  15. Katie says:

    15:38
    Pullups still slowing me down on circuits but getting better. First day back after several off so felt a little stiff.

  16. Kiki says:

    11:06 First time on kettle bell swings…whoah! Feel like I’m getting slightly better at running. 🙂

    This should be a fun one today. Spent most of the night on or around the toilet (Thank you my sweet children! )

    Might do a “speed-walking” Helen. Full Olympic speedwalking form and rules apply.

    Just need to go find some spandex, leg warmers, and a head band.

    7:28 – nice surprise considering the amount of water lost during the past 24 hours.

    maybe I’ve discovered the “secret” to setting CrossFit PR’s………….hmmmmmm
