CrossFit Endurance Rest Day (07.21.2009)

Stable News:
Don PePe better bring the lumber tomorrow. He's been begging for a shot at a heavy deadlift WOD for months now... Just thought everyone should have that background information, it will make the taunts more understandable to outside observers.
Oh, and that image of Deb where she looks like shes flying over some huge Tonka tire? That was her first successful box jump (20'') and it was absolutely inspiring to watch her stall, fail, trip, and spout profanity for 15 minutes before she finally nailed it.
''OD'': You and your little crew of CrossFitting peers are a constant source of pride and inspiration for all of us, we can't wait to see what obstacles you ruthlessly crush next.

Welcome Notice:
Yesterday we welcomed Dennis into our family of CrossFitters. It was fascinating listening to the stories that come out of his affiliate down in Florida, different teaching styles, backgrounds and passions lend a unique and beautifully different quality to each CrossFitting haven (Garages, basements, and the wilderness are equally as admirable... but we might be biased on that one.)
Dos Deb was kind enough to run her time trial WOD with Dennis, who smoke checked what would be his inaugural WOD.
The next few days are going to be an absolute blast, especially since everyone has been buzzing about the max effort deadlift singles... I wonder if it's excitement or fear? Either way its going to be a hell of a fight.
Glad to have you among us, Dennis, welcome to the family!

Just wanted to clarify to my fellow cross fitters I never uttered a word of profanity during my many many attempts at trying to get up on that tire........ :)

OD that is freaking fantastic work. Determination and persistence will take you much further than 20 inches.

Had to go out and buy more weight for up at camp!
Not as much fun doing the WOD by yourself either.

Max effort deadlifts.


Mike won't let me lift more till I get my form dialed in (which is fair), it's better than before but not great. Did some follow up form work at 185 and 135. Then practiced the snatch grip deadlift at 75.
