    I can’t believe I am missing Fran. Jeff

      Jeff, You will have chance to do it, do not be sad. But, donΒ΄t call that lady in the gym!!!

    • coach | August 4, 2009 at 1:56 pm

      Uh-oh. Jeff said “Fran”…

      If you have time today, get in here and get her, JW.

      Hey you never know what will come out of the hopper…. dun dun duuunnnn

      • coach | August 4, 2009 at 2:36 pm

        Good point. It’s completely possible for someone to draw “Fran” on Sunday. Twice in one week—yikes.

        Maybe you should do the honors, Mayra…I like where your head is.

    My arms are on fire…

    I just thought I would share that.

    From now on she will be for ever known as “NARF” Soon Helen will be called “NELEH” (pronounced “Nellie”). If we keep this up Fight Gone Bad will be “Thgif enog dab” Huh!? Easy for you to say πŸ™‚

    Even though my time was worse than the last time I did NARF, somehow it felt better.

      speaking of “thgif enog dab” – how’s the main site workout treating you guys today? that’s what you get for making up new “rule 0″s – haha

      • coach | August 4, 2009 at 2:38 pm

        Uh-oh. Jenny said “thgif enog dab.” That’s rule # -1.


      • train2live | August 4, 2009 at 3:50 pm

        OK I am making up Client rule number 1…No antagonizing the coaches or else we will be dead by week’s end. If you can’t help your self…see client rule number 1.

        I do feel horrible about the work out the coaches have to perform today…can’t you just see the tears running down my face…no seriously, lest this be considered antagonistic…which I would never do because of client rule number 1. πŸ™‚


  4. capitalpressure | August 4, 2009 at 2:23 pm

    You know I will be, even though you guys told me to take a rest day.

    So….just say..just saying now…I walked into the gym this afternoon (like I’m prone to do) and just say…just saying now…i say “FRAN”..I mean…really…would they be so heartless for tomorrow’s WOD? πŸ™‚

    • train2live | August 4, 2009 at 4:21 pm

      Neil, Clearly you missed my post about client rule number 1…ugh!! I know it was signed anonymous, but you know it was me.

      I guess I will mentally prepare for another romp with good ole what’s her name tomorrow.

      Dude, seriously?

      • sub10NARF | August 4, 2009 at 7:17 pm

        amendment to Rule 1 was that it is ok to say NARF on the day of NARF.

        Kindly note that I am now known as sub10NARF, at least until I can do one.

      • sub10NARF | August 4, 2009 at 7:17 pm

        Correction. the amendment was to Rule Zero.

    Hey Melody and John!

    It was so great to see your beautiful facility tonight. Great space and location and awesome coaches! Mel, thanks for doing “she who will not be named” with me. We gutted it out and did our best for the day, that’s all we can ask of ourselves (I still have a headache by the way). Its been a while since we’ve worked out together, I miss those days! Hopefully we can do it again soon.

    I am so excited for both of you! Congrats again!!
    Lots of love,

    • coach | August 4, 2009 at 9:52 pm

      Thanks, Christy!! That was a challenging workout. I’m glad you could come in; it was awesome to have such an amazing athlete like you in our gym. And oh yeah, John said he wants to see you at MPH more often…when are you coming in again?
