“Pain is Perception.”-Unknown
1 Round of Max Number of Pull-Ups. Kipping is allowed and so are bands. Use the smallest band possible. Your round starts as soon as you begin your first pull-up and ends when your hands come off the bar. Chin has to be above the bar in order for pull-up to count. If you think that your chin probably got above the bar, but you’re not sure, don’t kid yourself. It didn’t! Do it again and make it count! Lets see who’s gonna beat the Coaches. My money is on Adrian. Make us proud Adrian. Don’t let us down Adrian. The pressure is on Adrian. You’re the man Adrian. I just set you up Adrian. Haha
The running seminar is filled up. The O-lift seminar is not. Make sure to sign up, it’s happening this Saturday. If you don’t, you’re going to wish you had when we start next weeks Wod’s.
Deep Waters and a Wife’s Kind Words
Have you ever taken on a physical challenge and half ways through you’re thinking to yourself, “What did I get myself into?” That’s called being in deep waters. You learn a lot about yourself when you get into deep waters. You find out how mentally tough you are. It’s usually a little painful, but totally worth it when it’s all over.
Renee B. and Donna did it when they came to CrossFit for the first time. Their first workout was “Murph.” That wod consists of a 1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and finishes up with a mile run. Those ladies’s are hardcore.
John T. treaded deep waters a couple weeks ago. His friends gave him a 3-day notice that he would be taking part in the Summit Challenge. This challenge consisted of hiking 7 summits here in the valley. It was 22 miles and 5600ft of elevation. They did it in one day. JT has never been one to shy away from a challenge thrown his way.
This Sunday Renee C., Tony, and I are running a half marathon. Renee has been preparing for it, logging miles each week. Tony and I are just going to get through it using CrossFit as our primary way of training. We asked another guy in our crew if he would run it with us. But Juan declined. Tony and I have been trying to talk him into it. I badgered Juan a little today but he still refused.
I asked Tony what made him decide to do it. He said he had a talk with his wife Shannon,(who was a client and hopefully will be back soon), and her supportive words convinced him to sign up. Her moving words weren’t, “Honey you can do it!” or “I’ll be so proud of you if you run this race!” Nope, Shannon said in a soft loving way that only a wife can say, “Don’t be a chicken sh*t!”
I’m wondering if Juan just needs a little push from his family like Tony did. So I’m asking all of you to please post a comment that will motivate and or inspire Juan. It’s ok if you’ve never met him, post anyways. He’s part of out CrossFit family, and he needs our encouragement right now. Come on Juan, get into deep waters!
