nice Pic Tony Z
Scaled with KPU’s (I think I put JPU’s on the white board)
KPU’s were mostly nose/face to bar, two at a time. The rope is not my friend for many reasons…
Rx’d clean and jerk.

Who knew Shawn and Will were going to tribute MC Hammer this afternoon?!? I can only hope Russell got some good shots.
Break it down!
Stop, Hammer time!
U Can’t Touch This
Oh oh-oh-oh Oh!
U Can’t Touch This
Ring the bell, schools in!
I’ve got the crud or something. Today’s WOD is sleep…..
I’ve got $20 on murph for tomorrow.
How’d you know?? Was it the Luck o the Irish??
The last time it came up was st patrick’s day last year. I figured it had to come up today.
Rope climb got me. DNF on 2nd round – only 1 full ascent. Grip and arm strength need more work.
Justin, nice call!! Murph was my first CrossFit workout I ever attempted and so far it’s the only one I’v ever quit on. I’m ready to give it another shot tomorrow.
Finally back to 100% and I get to do Murph for the first time tomorrow. This should be fun!
Screw the whole WOD…….I got my first rope climb today….haha!!!!!!
And my first attempt at Murph tomorrow…….barf. I may not live through the run!!!!!
And awesome to see Russell’s snatch on the main site 🙂
Do or Do Not. There is no try!!!!!!
Good work today Emily and Tasha!! Way to whip that rope climb into submission!!
Now, Emily, the rule is, if you do a WOD, you MUST post, from here on out…Not just when you conquer the rope climb!!!
That’s what I thought!!
Yeah yeah yeah………so I will now post even when I suck 🙂
You gotsta now….. You’re a kick a$$ rope climber!! Now everyone’s gonna be looking to see how Awesome Emily did…
Murph….First and foremost, it’s always an honor to suffer through a Hero WOD…..But, is it any surprise that this particular WOD is named Murph?

I posted something then it disappeared? Anywhaay.
-added 15 24″ box jumps following the rope climb
Congrats to E.D. for making the rope ascent look easy!
Please bring the weight vest to the luncher tomorrow! I have a date with claustrophobia (Murph) tomorrow.
Will do. Hope you enjoy that extra 20#.
The 20lb wasn’t that bad last time until I was finished. I couldn’t get it off and started freakin’ out.
It is going to suck….don’t get me wrong!
Awesome video of that snatch Russel!
But, I, like Emily conquered a fear today, and finally mastered the art of coordination (vs. the lack of coordination as experienced before)…..
I got 1/2 rope climb, 6 out of 9 times!!
Next goal: Rope climb to the top!!
and Rope Climbs, halfway, 6 of 9 attempts..the other 3, were probably only about a foot off the ground….
