20 came to the Barn this evening for a workout in 36 degree, dreary weather. Honestly, I’ve decided that people prefer Winter workouts once they get started. You are finding that it’s easier to workout in freezing cold than it is to workout in 90 degree, humid heat. The attendance and the energy/excitement levels are greater the worse the weather seems to be.
Warmup: Run 800m/Row 1000m.
Strength WOD: Back Squats 5/5/5/5/5 The 3rd rep of each set was to be a 3 second pause at the bottom of the ATG squat. The best 5 rep set was reported.

The WOD today was from the CrossFit Main Site Sunday, except that the order of the exercises were inverted because I felt that they flowed into each other better my way.
Tim C. was a new boy today. He is a friend of Jordan A. and hails from down under, Australia. I don’t think he will be back very often unless he can find some cheap airfares.
I suppose we are going in the right direction as far as your fitness needs are concerned. I get very few complaints about the programming. Most of you are getting stronger and doing better on the conditioning WODs. Many of you have chronic injuries that don’t stop you but we work around them. Still, injuries are very troubling. There is a lot that could be discussed about this, but mainly we must all be careful, patient and progress slowly. Most of you spent decades developing your poor fitness condition, but are impatient if you aren’t ready for the CrossFit Games after 6 months of training. Be patient, have fun, don’t quit, fitness is a lifetime endeavor.
THURSDAY, THURSDAY at 4 PM.
