We’ve been doing a lot of good work on snatches and overhead squats recently.  This Friday is your chance to see how you’re progressing, and test yourself against Nancy.  This benchmark last came up for us on April 30th. Run fast, and do everything in your power to not break up those overhead squats.

October 22nd, 2010

WOD: Nancy
5 Rounds:
400m Run
15 Overhead Squats (95#/65#)


A couple of your CrossFit Fenway teammates are rowing in the Head of the Charles this weekend.  Petar Lovric is rowing on Saturday at 11:08 AM in the Men’s Alumni event for the defending champs, the Northeastern Alumni.  Ed Smith is rowing at 2 PM on Saturday in the Men’s Masters event with the Evergreen Club, Dartmouth Alumni.  It’s free to watch, just head down to the banks of the Charles, and cheer hard for our guys.

Work on your agility, coordination, and balance.  Join your CrossFit Fenway friends at the Havana Club in Central Square on Saturday, October 23rd at 9 PM, for a night of salsa dancing, socializing, and fun.  Lessons and libations are available to help you learn the moves.  Like any WOD, proper footwear can help performance, so try to avoid rubber-soled shoes that will grip the floor and make turning more difficult.

The Beast of the East throwdown at CrossFit New England is Saturday, November 6th.  Our athletes are getting ready.  Mark your calendars, and get ready to come cheer on your CrossFit Fenway teammates.

Compete in the most physically demanding obstacle course available on Saturday, November 13th in Marshfield at Ruckus Boston 2010Stephanie Schneider is helping to organize the CrossFit Fenway team.  Please contact her if you’d like to participate, as discounts are available for teams.

    1. Awesome work… I am now where you were back in April. Can’t wait to see the gain over the next few months. You’re inspiring!

  1. No April Nancy to compare: 20:40, 20kg
    Kicking myself for not coming in under 20min, but thanks to Aaron and Tiff for trying to get me there.

  2. My first encounter with Nancy: 15:51 Rx.
    Actually looking forward to this one again. I made a few stupid mistakes that hurt my time. Also, I won’t do 100 thrusters the day before I do Nancy ever again. My quads are numb!

  3. Just missed the 20 minute cutoff… Damn… For me, this was more about balance than squatting the weight.

    20:12, 31kg (started with 35kg but had to scale down).

  4. Still sore (in a good way) from yesterday, but I loved this one.

    18 minutes even with 35kg. First time, so nothing to compare it too personally.

  5. 19:23 @25kg.
    46 seconds slower than April, but 10kg heavier, so win.

    Also, didn’t nearly die the night before in april.
