    figured out why I felt like crap on Cindy and then felt worse the next day. Turns out Campbell is sick with another Virus. Once again, my performance in CrossFit is a more sensitive barometer for health than my general perception of my health….

    trying to figure out if Campbell is worth keeping or If I’ll sell her to Gypsies.

    It is interesting that Russ’s post of the Whole Foods Answer to Obamacare is today’s Crossfit main site rest day discussion. It is resonating. Even ABC interviewed the Whole Foods CEO. http://www.abcnews.go.com/2020/Stossel/story?id=8409962

    ABC admits that providing free care for everyone costs everyone more. More insurance is not the answer. Reducing costs and reducing demand is the answer. That is what Whole Foods has done with making the individual a part of the cost process. What other element of our life costs so much but we care so little about what that actual cost is? We need to make users of health care aware and invested in the cost. Otherwise, everyone will end up using more. Why wouldn’t we use more health care if it cost us nothing more (directly) to do so?

    As for the Brits and their system, it is generally popular. Despite people dying in the system, they do not wan to give it up. This is why it is called an entitlement. Try to take an entitlement away from someone once they have it. They are happy working the first 40 minutes of every hour to pay for those entitlements all over Europe. They envy our economic growth over time, but they are unwilling to make the entitlement changes necessary to realize it in their own backyard.

    Sucks to do a lite/recovery version of a Hero WOD. My apology to CPO Hardy and his family. Fair winds Nate.
    Assisted MUs, Head to floor HSPU, 1 pood KB swings
    4 or 5 rounds in 10 min.
    Really just working at getting a MU and used the other movements for some variety.

  6. Russell says:

    Totally agree.

    The Co-founder’s suggestions, which even if disagreed with, seem to be aiming for the same goal as Obamacare- better health care for all Americans… which Is why I found it hysterical that his ideas were met with calls for boycott of Whole foods and his resignation. Blasphemy I suppose.

    Notice there is no car insurance “crisis”. Craig and I had this discussion in California. Think about it for a couple of seconds and it will be fairly clear how poorly our current system represents free-market enterprise.

    Welcome to the fun world of kid diseases. The sickest I’ve ever been in my entire life has been during the last two years. Julian goes to kiddie school….picks up all the kiddie diseases my body has not seen since I was a kiddie….I get sick and immune system has to revisit the fun. Unfortunately my susceptibility to kiddie illness directly corresponds to when a CF event is coming up. I fully expect to be sick for the October Fest games. There is light at the end of the pestulence tunnel. I’m getting less and less sick….as is Julian.

    If you find that band of gypsies then let me know. I’ll need there service the last week of September.

  8. klowe says:

    damn spelling… “their” services.

  10. Kerri says:

    GHDs/Box Jumps for time-9:09

  11. Kerri says:

    20″ box jumps that is
    Hadn’t missed a workout this week, but know I’ll miss Saturday…..
    Definitely see the rhyme and reason of 3 on, 1 off; I felt like I had lead in my feet!

  12. Craig Herr says:

    We did have a cool discussion in CA about how other insurance works in comparison to Health. The comparisons are not perfect but in spirit it makes much more sense to have a system based on you “pay for what your fair share should be”. You drive a Mercedes and want higher limits you pay a higher premium …if you have three wrecks and a few DUI’s on your record you are almost uninsurable and you must pay 3, 4, or 10 times what a person with a clean driving record might pay. There needs to be a similar health system where the person who does not chose to be as healthy as they can must pay more for coverage than say a “dedicated cross fitter” who works out hard and eats healthy! There is no doubt the system is flawed and it will be a very tough and painful fix in the end, but something needs to change.

  13. Jimmy says:

    hey it’s a picture of me! sorry i had to leave so abruptly but i ended up getting into rhodes monday afternoon and left tuesday morning. the good thing is i can begin to do crossfit on a regular basis here so hopefully i won’t get fat weak and unathletic again.

  14. Katie says:

    I made up Cindy today.

    15 rounds + 6
    Last 12 rounds were ring rows though

    I am going to have to start taking care of my hands correctly. I couldn’t even do strict pull-ups, the presssue on my callouses was unbearable. So I had this weird bird-claw grip on the rings to avoid holding the darn things.

  15. James p says:

    Nate, as RX’d – 12 rounds + 2 MUs.

    doing this with the big kettle bell totally blows. i’d previously just been using a 55# db, because that’s all i have at home.
