      Notes for today:
      -counted double under misses

      • mikeheartspullups | September 22, 2009 at 4:34 pm

        I have to officially apologize to Neil abou this. Even after you made it perfectly clear today that “misses” would count towards the total, I think I stopped counting them halfway through the workout. I apparently have some sort of built-in mental block to counting unsuccessful attempts. It’s not unlike Neil’s built-in mental block to counting, period. Neil, where did you get your abacus? I could use one…

        Thanks for the double-under coaching today, John and Mel. I have been needing that kick in the pants for a while.

        • Kimmie | September 22, 2009 at 5:00 pm

          If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t count any of mine.

        • HappilyHome | September 22, 2009 at 8:00 pm

          Lol. Thanks Mike. Id like to think I didn’t count my misses only cause I make any. (grin)

  3. coach | September 22, 2009 at 9:32 am

    Excellent day so far, team. Everyone who didn’t have a double under got one, and those who had double unders got much better.

    Congratulations to Jen M. and Steve D. for setting the consecutive doubles mark at 30 and 63, respectively.


  4. Rob | September 22, 2009 at 10:16 am

    Great job with the 63 double-unders. BTW: sorry about the rope – the handle just flew off!

    Apologies for the public work-related email, but Jess, the outfit I was talking about was Impact Trial. Here is their page:


    Talk with Jesse or Bill Weir. Both solid guys.

    • Jessica | September 22, 2009 at 6:03 pm

      Thanks, very helpful, Rob.

    Interesting: One of the main components of Crossfit seems to be a sense of community. Indeed. I have as of late seen more Crossfit MPH members around the neighborhood, have had more friendly “hellos” with them, more interaction, than I do with my own neighbors here on Church Street! Hello to Neil tonight while crossing the street….

    One of the joys of sport is that it brings the most unlikely of people together in a way that they may never otherwise interact. The best friends I have in the world came to me through sport. I am not saying that I am gonna be your friend…but, I am saying that this is a damn good start! It even defies the logic and framework of a very unsociable DC!

    (By the way…I have also been a member of Vida for the past year and I have never met, talked with, or even learned the name of one single person that I have worked out next to. Of course, that might be an adjunct of my own personality…or the fact that I smelled so awful after my WOD.)
