  1. Just want to say I’m really, really looking forward to this. Badger was one of the first Crossfit WODs that made me dig into my soul to finish. It’s had a special place there ever since.

  2. In honor of you Chief Petty Officer Carter, RIP.
    Great programming this week. I had nothing left at the end of this workout! Good work 5:30.
    Rachel, best of luck this weekend with the opening of your restaurant!

  3. good GOD this workout killed me. this was a huge mental battle for me, but i’m really glad we got to finish this out.

    52:19 @30kg. Hindsight, I probably should’ve gone with 25kg…those squat cleans were terrible.

  4. 39:41 at 66#, red on pull-ups. RIP, Badger.

    – I signed up for the Endurance program, e.g. I am giving up Friday night drinking. Many of you know that the only thing I’m worse at than pull-ups is pushing myself while running, so I have high hopes for this. Hope to see you all there.

    – I also signed up for the RX division of the Garage Games. Thinking about this makes me break out in hives and want to vomit.

  5. Badger (11.19.10) — 40:54 @ 63# and two red bands
    Badger (8.12.11) — 45:15 @ 77# and no bands

    This is truly a crusher of a WOD, a fitting tribute to a hero. In your honor, CPO Carter.

  6. Nov 19th, 2010: 38:00 with 95# and banded pullups
    Aug 12th, 2011: 39:05 Rx

    I think this workout beat me before I even walked in the door (usually love reading the comments–today I think the buildup hurt me).

  7. Badger: 39:54 RX – only month # 5 off crossfit, but by the far the toughest workout I have done thus far. RIP CPO Carter.

  8. I had goal in mind coming into this one, I wanted to RX this and did. It wasn’t a pretty time (48:28), but I did what I set my mind to with much help.

  9. You guys are all badass (in my book) just for taking this workout on! Great job to all of you, especially all of you that beat your last time or increased the load.

    Jen, good luck in the garage games, you’re going to kill it!

  10. In your honor CFP Carter. 38:06 Rx.

    cramped up BAD in the last round, last 800m run probably took 4+ minutes.
    something to work on for next time
