  1. 40:54 @ 63#/two red bands.

    “His fellow SEALs gave him the nickname Badger after the small but ferocious animal. The name was bestowed after Carter (5’5″) beat a 6’5″ opponent in a wrestling match.”

    In your honor, Badger.

  2. 37:54 at 25kg and green&red pull-ups.

    Certainly wasn’t easy, but if I could do these 90 pull-ups with green and red, I will not ever use green and purple again. Thanks KP!

  3. 38:19 (63#, purple & red)
    That workout was all mental for me. I shouldn’t have let 90 psyche me into dropping the bar or upping my bands. But it felt rad to show up and push through, especially after considering just hitting snooze this morning. Great start to the day.

  4. Strength Bias programming called for press today (did 60kgx3 and 95#x13), and metcon 20 minutes or less. It would not have felt right to short change Badger, though.

    34:45 Rx

    1. Yosh, I bet you could do this twice in the time it will take me to do it once tonight.. seriously. I think for the rest of my life, whenever I read “30 pullups”, I will immediately have flashbacks to the 4th wod at beast. and we all know how that went..

  5. CrossFit Fenway is now on, and the workouts from this past week have been entered. I believe it’s $3 a month to join. Check it out.

    1. That’s great! I just submitted my request to join CFF on beyondthewhiteboard.

      Folks, I highly recommend BTWB. I’ve been using it for a few months, and it is a great resource. It is especially useful for graphing your lifts over time, unless you get some deep satisfaction from flipping through a notebook trying to find your previous PR.

        1. There are plenty of options for logging your workouts, but the benefit of beyondthewhiteboard over the others is that the CFF WODs will be posted so you won’t have to manually enter the workout details yourself, just the result.

        2. Another benefit of BTWB is that you can track yourself against everybody else at the gym, or across the entire CrossFit Community.

    1. I would have liked that. I’m sure we would both have gotten better times with a little added motivation. Chasing Sandon through the squat cleans definitely made me go faster*.

      * “fast” is a relative term when it comes to me doing squat cleans

  6. 46:02 24kg, 1p/1r
    Beyond evil, (especially trying to breathe in the cold), but sooo glad I finished.

    Thanks, Stace, for the oh-so-flexible 30 min cap… 😉

  7. Sorry to miss this. Got a bad cold this week. I am so impressed at everyone’s accomplishments this morning! This WOD is scary to even read, let alone finish. You all did it with such enthusiasm, you should be proud. Congrats!!

  8. 38 minutes even.

    95# on the squat cleans (yeah) but had to use a purple band on the pullups (WTF). Must-get-better-at-kipping.

  9. it’s been a little while since I had butterflies in my stomach over the upcoming workout! Looking forward to facing them down in honor of CPO Carter.

  10. What a work-out! It was a great 7pm class. Thanks for pushing me Eric, Joe, Aaron, Claire, Laura, Brian, JK, Chandra, Kate. Sigh…. I so wanted to give up after a really long day. Glad I didn’t.~xo
