    Today’s word of the day was perseverance. Of all the WOD’s we’ve done, I never thought DU’s would mentally break me…and they came close. But I persevered and was able to get legit DU’s on the last 10 reps. My time pisses me off, but what I love about CF is I learn something about myself every time, good or bad workouts. Annie…your mine next time.

    did endurance run WOD, except i subbed rest with the Rx’d sit ups for today’s WOD. I really havent been able to practice my pose running and I will need some “in depth” tutoring on du’s.

    Crossfit Bootcamp has had a encouraging first week. Keep up the great work!:)

    -Very excited about today’s WOD. First time I’ve ever linked all DU’s as rx’d. Even had a knot in the rope for the 20’s but they were hitting so I just left it be. Still a bunch of work on form needs to be done. I waste energy jumping to high on the DU’s…….there is ALWAYS something.

  5. Robert Montgomery says:

    6:38 sit ups were with unanchored feet, hands behind head (they slipped off a few times on the way up though). Almost linked all DU’s but missed a few. Like Kevin I am still wasting way too much energy on my DU’s by jumping too high….

  6. Russell says:

    Back squats, 5×5 @ 275 pounds (i’m a day behind)

  7. Barry S says:

    I’m more than a day behind, but since I can’t do DU and no clue what the scaled version is, did yesterday’s…scaled for hotel w/dumbbells: 2×5 w/55’s, 2×5 w/65’s, 1×5 w/85’s. + 50 su for fun. woohoo!

    13:08 – I hate double-unders.

  11. Krista says:

    13:19 feet unanchored, excited about actually doing a WOD as rx’d.

  12. Justin says:

    13:48 5x single under sub, unanchored situps

  13. Kerri says:

    10:18 (PR by 1:28) anchored…shoe came untied twice. Boo. Switched from speed rope to the regular rope, which
    I think helped. Great job on all the PR’s!!!

  14. Emily D. says:

    First time doing Annie (and DU’s)

    15:33 did singles first two rounds…then DU the last 3 rounds. sit ups were unanchored

    This was also the first time I didn’t come in last (or next to last) since starting Crossfit about 6 weeks ago so I am feeling good tonight!

    7:26 (pr).

  18. Katie says:

    9:14 (PR by 5:13)
    Huge improvement due to rope change and practice.

  19. leah says:

    11:12 tuck jumps

  20. Mandy says:

    9:06 Not PR. Grrr. Finally got the swing of DUs at 20 round… felt sluggish all around. May have been the amount of sugar I consumed yesterday. Poor performance definitely motivated me to steer clear of baked goods at the office today.

    • Kerri says:

      Mandy, right there with ya. Finally started rolling with the DU’s at 30 round. And, I don’t know what it was about yesterday at our office, but there was cookie cake, homemade cheese danish (that I brought in, hoping it’d get consumed;SCORE!), and KK doughnuts…. Think I would’ve done better had I not visited the cookie cake a couple of times….

  21. Charlie says:

    As Rx’ed = 12:35

    This one didn’t leave me too tired… probably because I spent alot of time trying to get the rope unwound from my head, legs, arms, etc. I find that a small drop in energy leads me to a huge drop in coordination. One day I’ll figure out the magical secrets of double-unders.

  22. J.D. says:

    16:26 as rx’d. Double unders were VERY slow and broken until mid-round 3, then finally started to link a few. Good WOD, and great double-under practice.
