Cheetah listens raptly to the song, and applauds enthusiastically upon its conclusion.

Hey Ranger Friends! Any fellow Crossfitters signed up for the Open this year? Do we have a thread/chat/leaderboard similar to previous years? 

 

I am, but I haven’t done anything about starting a thread

Next to the Crossfit games mentioned above there is also still an ongoing friendly powerlifting competition (though @jonfirestar isn't leaving much of competition left) in this thread:

If someone could come along and give me a run for my money, I'd be most obliged ;)

I just hopped over there and took a look. I'm adding my numbers to the pool but they're there for novelty more than anything else. For example, are we calculating my performance as if I weighed my non-pregnant weight? Or does my ride-along freeloader count as weight? Because really he just makes me tired. Lol.

Jarric limps in to the guildhall, a smile on his face and a pack at his back. 

 

Pint of the black stuff barkeep, it seems I've missed the music but I'm sure we can find some more.

Just use your NP weight. The little parasite will lower your numbers enough by feeding off of you ;)

I concur use your pre-pregnancy weight. I don't think anyone will claim that carrying a baby gives you an unfair advantage.

Well the last back squat video I sent you was 132.5 for 5. That was around RPE 9.5, ignoring my obvious issues with hitting depth ;)

Fatigue and effort-wise this is completely true. He definitely caps my effort levels - I especially notice this skiing uphill. I go to get into bigger skating motions and my whole body is like "nope! you cannot have more power" after a few strides. That said, I know I've put on lower body muscle since getting pregnant. But I miss my lats. lol. First trimester tired ate my lats. I gained no weight in the first 10 weeks and MFH thought my face looked gaunt.

 

I'll go in and change it.

 

EDIT: DL number is now 109 :)

 

It's cold out today. @Cheetah whatever happened to your maker of hats? I need a cloak that is as soft as my cat and as cozy as my carhartt jacket.

Funny enough, it's just been finished.  It's goat skin, cured in a proprietary blend of alpine flora that renders it tough as boot leather but lighter than linen.  It's lined with the fur of snowshoe hares, each of whom lived to a ripe old age and died contented and sleeping in a chair by a fire.  It has a high collar that can be firm against the wind or totally out of the way.  It's gently embroidered with details in your favorite color.  It is my gift to you.  :-)

I'm not a Ranger at the moment, but at heart it suits me. I'm super proud and excited about my first chin ups PVP and know some of the Rangers here will enjoy following and cheering on their favorite competitor during the challenge. Maybe in the future we can do a similar challenge here. Without further ado:  

  •  The victor claims status of strongest man
  •  The defeated gets duct taped on video

 

 Follow the madness here:

I am completely thrilled with my gift. I'll put it on, wrapped it around me, and retreat to the fire with a mug of stew. I may pass out, but I won't spill my stew.

Here we go. Time to dash back into the snow. Now that I have recharged, I need a good trek. And some sky. I know I will be warm.

I've been away far too long. Did we always know the barkeep's name?

Innkeeper Bertrand can handle your nutrition, beverage, and entertainment needs as always!

 

I think the innkeeper is the same as the barkeep??

 

It completely blew my mind.
