Power Cleans (115/75)

Thrusters (115/75)

*Post Times.

The following is a blog post that I stumbled upon by CrossFit Watertown:

We wrote this back in 2007 but it still rings true today.

1. I will promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, from hour to hour, from minute to minute. But in that minute, I will do the very best I can.

2. Lactic acid is my friend. The wind is my friend. Anything that opposes me is actually helping me to become stronger. If I had no opposition, I would be weak.

3. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. If I am forced to crawl, I crawl. And then I rest and live to fight another day.

4. I fear no man, but I fear my workout. If I don’t fear my workout, it isn’t hard enough.

5. I may puke. I may cry. But I will not quit. Ever.

6. I never cheat. There is no honor in cheating. What joy can there be in a victory I did not earn?

7. The workout missed is the opportunity missed. I will not cheat myself of the opportunity to become a better athlete and person.

8. I understand the value of the push-up, the pull-up, the sit-up, the squat, and the deadlift. Just as there are a million ways to make chicken so too are there a million ways to squat, sit up, pull up, push up, and deadlift.

9. I will give everything I have. And then I will find more within myself.

10. I don’t complain. Complaining is for crybabies. There are 11,232 babies born in the U.S. everyday. I will leave the crying to them and I will soldier on.

11. I will bite off challenges, spit out results, and beg for more. What are you going to do?

    That was a BEAST!!!! Shoulders are fried, could have went to 95lbs and gotten a faster time, but I didn’t and muscled through it. What a good end to the week. I agree with all above, but especially #’s 5 and 9.

    Update on my mom, she went in for surgery at Stanford yesterday and the 12 hour operation went well and she was resting. Today she has a 5 hour procedure and then will be home on Friday. I want to thank all of you, my extended family, at CFM. If there is anything you ever need let me know and I will see what I can do for you.

    1 last thing and I will finish, Coaches going to need about a week of “hotel” WOD’s. Let’s go with a jump rope, ocean, pool, shoreline, and no equipment. I will post a “where in the world photo” and show you just how rough life is.Take care and enjoy your Easter!
