Happy Birthday to Coach P!


  • AllisonNYC

    YAY! EVA is the greatest. Love her.
    This workout looks hard as hell.

  • Coach P

    Ready to have fun everyone? 11AM WOD class: we all have a date with Eva!

  • michelle

    ok seriously what is the sub for running-walking? crawling?
    can we take a cab???
    my treat!

  • Jack Bauer

    Oh hell to the hell no! This WOD would take my shoulder right off! Coach is loving the 2 pood huh?

    In her recent interview (Tuesday video), Eva was asked to name a workout she might like named after her, and she mentioned “Helen.”
    So, now there is “Eva,” like ‚ÄúHelen‚Äù but with about three times the running, three times the kettlebell work, and four times the pull-ups.
    OPT, with a 7-minute Helen, will probably need at least 30 minutes for this. I’m hoping to stay below one hour.
    The good news is that Eva didn’t suggest “Murph.‚Äù Had she done so, we might have ended up with:
    Run 5K
    300 Pull-ups
    600 Pushups
    900 Squats
    Run 5K

    I will not be joining everyone for the Eva fun, I get to enjoy midterm studying. I’m not sure which is going to be more painful……

    Tiff, Moon says: “Get up and study!”

  • Adam

    Just had to stop by and say Happy Birthday Mike! I’ll finally see you guys again Wednesday afternoon. I’m looking forward to it.

  • http://www.crossfitnyc.com Coach P

    Thank you everyone for doing Eva. She would be glad to know she could provide you with this level of pain.

  • Margie

    Did a slightly modified Eva at South Brooklyn.
    600m run
    30 swings (20 lb db)
    30 jumping ring pullups
    Brutal, but kind of awesome.

    61:00 as R’xd… Could have had sub-60:00 but both my hands decided to give out for my last 10 pullups and now have 2 huge open wounds that made my last 6 pull-ups take over a minute. Great work everyone today, and Happy B-day Coach P!!!!!!

  • margie

    oh – 5 rounds.

  • Jack Bauer

    Happy Birthday Coach P. I hope you “Get some” in some shape or form on your birthday!
    To everyone I saw suffer through “Eva” I think Hari’s comment sums it up: Hari-”Is it me or is everything blurry.” Wow

  • AllisonNYC

    Happy Birthday Darling

  • Erica

    Happy birthday Mike!
    If I come in tomorrow can I do a wod not involving arms, or at least not my left one?

  • Robzilla

    Happy Birthday Coach P!
    Thanks for going to the Crash-Bs. It was an awesome time and I PRed by another 8 seconds. Down to 7:04.
    Thanks for taking video and pictures. I can’t wait to see how they came out.
    Be careful what you wish for. I’m sure that the coaches will come up with a workout with some punrific name like “All Right”
    If I can’t get to Eva this week then I’ll have to wait for it to come up again. It looks pretty brutal, but fun.

    There is plenty for you to do here. Please come in.
    Maybe you can try to beat Jelli’s 400 score. :)

  • Moon

    Did this in about 58:37 or something.
    1.5 pood sub.
    Really felt great in the first 3 rounds but by the time of the 4th round pullups, my hands were the limiting factor. Grabbed the Jeffpads (not to be confused with Roca Pads – http://youtube.com/watch?v=I9dj6zUD_9w ) to try to reduce the damage/pain for the last round and that helped a little. May have to get a pair of my own or look into grips or something.
