    Susan, Congratulations! Welcome to the fun!! Yeah, bummer about the cap and gown, but they do have T-shirts for sale!

    Welcome Susan!

    Susan, welcome!

    Ivy, nice work today! Very impressive! 🙂

    oh, and I’m not convinced there’s not beer in that fridge you guys have – I think you’re just saving it for some crazy beer-drinking workout one Saturday… just saying

  4. Mrs. Finkenstadt | September 2, 2009 at 10:33 am

    I could have sworn I saw 155 on Dave O’s bar.

    Thanks, Mayra!

      Nope—you saw a 35-lb. bumper and a 10 on each side.


      • Mrs. Finkenstadt | September 2, 2009 at 12:38 pm

        Ahh yes, those 35lbs create an optical illusion- way to go Dave- either way, you were pushin’ lots of poundage a great distance today!

        • train2live | September 2, 2009 at 2:13 pm

          Thanks for watching my back Ivy, but indeed it was 135. I would still be there if it was 155. 🙂

    Susan welcome.

    Ivy, Jen beat me to it but I too was very impressed by you today.

    What ever happened to the proposed beer mile? Not that I’m trying to predict what’s coming Saturday or anything.

    Coaches, did I have 95 or 105 lbs today on the bar for the front squat?

    • coach | September 2, 2009 at 11:54 am


      It was 95. We warmed up to 105, however.


  9. Rob | September 2, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    I don’t know what the beer mile is, but I like the sound of it.

  10. train2live | September 2, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    Not that I would participate, because I gave up drinking 4 years ago, but the “beer” mile sounds to me subbing body rows for pullups. If you are going to do this alcohol mile thingy then it should at the very least be Tequila.

    Come guys and gals haven’t we learned anything from our coaches…


    P.S. Let the puking begin…

    • coach | September 2, 2009 at 2:46 pm

      I like where your head is, Dave. Good thinking.


  11. InNeedofCalculator | September 2, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    argh..i’m missing a beer mile…I hope you all wait for me 🙂 I’ll be doing the WOD a day late 🙂 just incase any of you wanna know 🙂 (that’s if I can…I dn’t have a bar to clean)


  12. mccuej14 | September 2, 2009 at 1:36 pm

    see, this is how rumors get started 🙂

  13. operationyetifit | September 2, 2009 at 2:11 pm

    Since I’m contaminated did a half cindy in quarintine upon john’s suggestion.

    10 min
    7 rounds + 7 push ups (sub: jumping pull ups)

    My push up used to disintegrate around 30 and this time I managed 60 before slowing down. This crossfit stuff must be working 🙂

    I can’t let this post pass without a shout out to Stu – who really helped me push thought a very tough set – i met him just that day, but he was quite the team player right from the start!
