I haven't heard about these crossfit haters. Are these people who used to crossfit or just people watching from the outside? Sometimes when something works really well it attracts a lot of criticism which is why the NY Yankees, Tar Heel basketball, and Duke basketball are often hated. I've actually been hearing more and more people talking about crossfit. One of the globo type gyms in Carboro is advertising that it has crossfit classes.

Anyway, we've got enough to think about at TCF - like all those burpees we need to do!

Hate smurfs and you'll deal with me...

Interesting post.

One thing I've found in my time up here in Lake Placid working for FEMA is that some people just need to have something to dislike and complain about (I have some really good stories). Even if everything else in their lives is going great, they will harp on one small thing and ignore everything else that could be making them happy.

That said, I really hate the smurfs.

Simon killed it.
My hands are done.

People will bitch about anything. Just beat their ass on the next wod and maybe they will shut up (At least for a little while).

Saturday afternoon post-work workout.

Snatch Balance: 145# (took me 3 tries)
Deadlift: 275#

Skipped the metcon because, and I'm just being honest, I wasn't feeling it.

Worked on handstand push ups.

Going to the movies. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

115 Snatch Balance. 305 Snatch Grip Deadlift (I think I only got 1 rep before I called it a day to spare the thumb though).

Metcon was a total disaster - 15 minutes.

Lori

Meh, late post because Friday was...shall I call it semi-active recovery?

Low back was very sore & stiff--not hurt, but stiff & fatigued from Th so I decided not to push it.

Snatch balance = worked up to 95#. Right glute & IT band were (still are) knotting up miserably (what's up with THAT?) so I couldn't drop into the squat the way I need to.

Snatch grip deadlift stopped at 115# (Did I mention my back?)

Metcon 9:something? heavily modified with 20# KB and lifting knees to chest instead of T2B.

So...I showed up, even if I couldn't do much. Meh.
