    who knew it would be so difficult to catch a cab to get to the 8AM class?! I was standing out there for 15 minutes trying to catch a cab… I guess the karma gods are catching up to me for calling new yorkers pussies for shutting down the night before the storm…
    to carlos: good on you for being a proud, native new yorker. i’m a native utahn (born and raised in park city) and all i have to be proud of are a buttload of mountains and even more mormons.. ha!

    * Anyone have a good chiropractor they can recommend? I am having shoulder problems.
    …A chiropractor that isn’t going to tell me to quit CFing either

    Mike K., thanks for passing along the info about the Robb Wolf Seminar. As someone who got to go to the first-ever Robb Wolf Seminar (i.e., no longer a CF cert), I can’t state strongly enough how worthwhile of an event it is to attend if you’re looking to better understand nutrition from a scientific viewpoint but also be able to apply it in a practical fashion to real life. From what I’ve heard, the previous incarnation when it was a CF cert was still great but now that Robb is freed of the CF strictures, he makes better use of his 1 day to talk. I could listen to him for a week and still be learning new things, so it’s very important that every minute of that 1-day seminar is devoted to what is most relevant/useful.
    I’m sure the Hoboken seminar is going to sell out very quickly, so if you’re considering going, sign up NOW!

    Hey Jake, email me at ricardo.a.castaneda@gmail.com. I have an AMAZING sports doctor that will absolutely NOT tell you to quit CFing. She will actually encourage deadlifting in most situations haha. She’s great though and she’s right near CFNYC

    rx, should have gone a little harder out of the gate. I partitioned a little too much and too early to avoid bonking. 95lbs thrusters felt light after all the heavy ones that have come up. rows were all sub 2, except for the 5th which was 2:05.

    Not sure if anyone was looking for a spot, but thought this might be useful.

    Everything felt slow, but I got through it at least.

    death by 10 meters: thanks for the idea, Ari
    got up to 16. could have done better, but I was running on the slippery, wet sidewalk on the Hudson river. the transitions ate up too much time

  • Lenny

    30 muscle ups for time
    11:48
    This last WOD just had way too much volume for me and it seemed like a logistical nightmare. 2 bars for everyone?
    I’m starting to question mainsite programming.

  • brad s.

    slooooooow 40:42, 105# cleans, 85# thrusters, 35# kb sdhp. Next time I’m getting over my fear of the erg — sdhps suck.

  • Paul

    Lenny, thoughts on starting a crossfit football crusade?
    Did 135 cleans, 95 thrusters, and 50 double unders as sub for rows.
    28:35
    Next time shoot for thrusters unbroken and cleans as 6×2

  • http://phattrainer.tumblr.com Lenny

    I’ll tell you Paul the workouts on Crossfit football seem more intriguing and geared more towards what I’m looking for. I’m looking to be fast and explosive for periods of no longer than 10-15 minutes. These WODS that take 30 minutes just suck.
