A New Year, A Fresh Start

We’re doing a lot to start out the new year.  Many of you already know about the upcoming Oly clinics.  We’ve also got a fundamentals course starting January 11th, so if you have any friends or family looking for a way to begin their CrossFit journey in the new year, let them know about it.  Of course we still have plenty of the latest CFF t-shirts and hoodies, as well as WOD Books, a great way to track your 2011 progress, and chock-full (not chalk full) of useful info.  This is all just a tease though for some of the other things on the horizon (stay tuned), and for this message:

We want to start the year off right, with a clean slate, so to speak.  In the interest of keeping our box so fresh and so clean clean, we’re giving all unclaimed lost and found items, including towels to GoodWill if they remain unclaimed after this week. You’ve got a week to go through the ever growing pile of garments, and either properly store your items in your cubby, or take them home.  GoodWill is a fine charitable organization, and while you know I love you guys, all this unclaimed crap has to go.

      1. Thanks for sharing, dude. I just read it and especially loved this part on impartiality:

        No task, whatever it may be, will ever make
        itself easier to overcome because you are tired, sick or
        haven’t had your coffee. This is fitness’ beautiful simplicity.
        You either lift the weight or you don’t. You get yourself to
        shore or you drown. Almost doesn’t count.

        (The link didn’t work for me, but it’s the article headlined “Fitness is…exposure and impartial)

  1. I was definitely not feeling the squats this morning either. 72 kg, failed on rep 3 at 75.

    WOD: 10:20 with purple on the C2B. Fun rep scheme!

    Happy new year, fools!

  2. I wasn’t really planning on starting 2011 off with a DNF due to bloody hands, but oh well… just added one more thing to my list of resolutions: find a way to stop tearing.

    Nice work by everyone else!

      1. So true.. you rock, JK! 🙂

        (PS, Your uggs & necklace are safe in my cubby. Don’t worry, I didn’t get any blood on them!)

  3. +1 for the bloody hands crew. CTB pull-ups always get me.

    WOD: 6:37 Rx. Set my KB up pretty far from the pull-up structure, which cost me a few seconds running back and forth.

    Great job today 6pm class!

  4. WOD — 12:26 with unassisted dead-hangs. The extra few inches I needed to make C2B eluded me from the start…but I kept all my blood to myself 🙂

  5. LBBS – 57kg which about 2 months ago was a failed attempt at 1RM.

    WOD: 10:40 with 20kg KB and purple banded C2B. no blood for me, but got my first rip!

  6. LBBS 68 kg – still a new lift to me, happy with the progress but i still need some form work

    WOD 10:38, purple band kipping pullups, 20 kg kettlebell, knees to chest

    A lot of scaling but this workout was fun and fast!
