  1. Saturday, my box surprised my class by having us all meet on the field at a park in our town. Then we did: AMRAP 21 54m shuttle sprints 21 kettlebell swing 15 push-ups 9 burpees Tough to keep a decent sprint after that first round...
  2. In an io9.com article I have long since forgotten about, I saw a rather quirky illustration of a space turtle with four elephants on its back, and a flat world on the backs of the elephants. Seeing this, I thought, "How absurd. I have to check this out." Then I forgot about it. It came back into my head recently and I remembered that this was the setting of the Discworld series. And in my research, I discovered that there are 41 books in this series! Anyone here read through this series? I've already downloaded the first book, The Colour of Magic, but I've got to think
  3. I've got to re-read it. I enjoyed it a lot the first time around. Can't wait for the movie!
  4. For the first time in ages, we finally had an odd object carry! 5 RFT 400m medball carry 12 push press (85 lb) 12 box jumps (24 inch) 12 sumo dead lift high pull (85 lb) Our coach for my class set a time cap of 35 minutes, and I finished in 32:56.
  5. Neither of those are even remotely familiar to me. Regardless, I like the idea behind the phrase. Or rather, my interpretation of it: as long as you are doing something physical, you're an athlete.
  6. According to Bill Bowerman, co-founder of Nike and former track and field coach: "If you have a body, you are an athlete."
  7. LMAO. It doesn't happen that often (anymore), which is why I love doing them.
  8. Your diet will play a HUGE role in achieving your goals. You can do all the exercising you want, but if you don't eat right it won't make much difference. Look into apps like MyFitnessPal, which will take your basic data and your goals and suggest some numbers to strive for (calorie count, etc.) Logging your meals in the same app will also help.
  9. It's been said that regular exercise can raise testosterone levels, which could account for the feeling of masculinity.
  10. Today is - Strength: Shoulder Press 2 x 8 Metcon: 21-15-9 HSPU (which I scale to pike push-ups) Pull-up Burpee
  11. I, too, like a good odd object carry. I don't get to do those nearly as often as I like, though. Movements I love: Double unders, kettlebell swings, snatches Movements I like: Wall balls, cleans, pull-ups, Movements I hate: unassisted ring dips, thrusters, pike pushups Actually, I did a WOD earlier this week that I really enjoyed: AMRAP 25 25 Double unders 25 air squats 25 kettlebell swings @ 53 lb Weirdly enough, I also kind of enjoy Murph. I've done it twice since Memorial Day, getting a PR on the second time. I'm ai
  12. So we agreed, my caoch and I, that it's more important to keep up my conditioning as best I can and any strength loss over the next 4-6 weeks would be pretty minor. If any is lost, it wouldn't take long at all to build it back up. So it'll be workouts from my abs on down until I have my hand back. Thanks for the advise and support, y'all!
