CrossFit Beer WOD - St. Patricks Day 2012

Work hard.  Play Harder.

2 person teams.
3 rounds for time:
2 green beers
40 Wall Balls
40c Row
40 Burpees

Any of the above could be broken up between the 2 members of the team, but only one member could be working at any given time.

I believe almost all the teams broke it up as each a beer, and then splitting the rest evenly unless someone was having trouble, then the other could pick up the slack.

A few people did indeed have to run out and vomit in the parking lot, which is indicated on the final scores/whiteboard (picture posted).

These are 98% pictures taken during the competition (which had to be divided into 4 heats due to the number of people that showed up)

No pictures really were taken once the real festivities know to protect the innocent :)

Russ.  One of our Coaches
Jason.  Another one of our Coaches

The 'Coke' machine houses only beer.  And you don't need money.

First heat

Russ and Jason were a team
Second heat

Ben.  And Mary..with her tongue out. 

Terri.  Who is NOT a drinker but held her own with the beer portion
Nilo goofing off...
Teams and times.
My girl Terri flippin' that tire!

Go Terri go!

I seriously didn't think she was gonna do it!! These tires weigh 500lbs, and we normally do them in partners

Yum!  Just part of the food afterwards!  Yay for Paleo!

Incidentially I am back to Paleo and instead of 80/20, I have actually set the goal to be 95/5.  I still need to get the remaining feta cheese from my stock in the fridge, but the weekend was a huge success, and I cooked enough food and portioned it out in GladWare to last me all week: breakfasts, lunches, dinners and even snacks.  At least through Thursday anyway!

I am seeing a huge improvement in muscle tone and overall 'look' so between eating well and CrossFit, coupled with my running, things are good.

Don't tell anyone, but I could so give up running to do CrossFit full time.

Even though I am sore as hell this morning, I saw the WOD for today, and I want to do it so badly, but I think I am just going to be able to run today.  No way I can do both.  And with the amount of soreness in my biceps, I don't know that I could RM much weight anyway.

Sad face.

I went to Crossfit this morning and didn't think I would be able to wash my hair because my arms were so sore...

I soooo wanna do CrossFit! I was just telling the Hubs that I might want to just focus on "me" once I am all healed up and not focus on races for a little while. Here's to hoping that happens soon!

I think you would love it. when you are ready you should come in for a free Saturday 8am class at our place just for fun to see how you would like it. Then we could go get coffee!!!!

I have the races I have signed up for this year, but my goals of any PR's are gone out the window. If it happens, it happens, but I'm not going to train for PR's anymore.

I cant even believe I just typed that.

I love this new me, and my new friends AND my new STRONG body.
