Favorite Quotes:

CrossFit quote: Your goal today is simple: Be better. Be better in thought, in word, in deed. Be better at what you think, what you say, what you write, what you do. Your effort doesn’t have to be monumentally better than yesterday. PRs don’t happen every day. And if they did? We would be bored, and take them as commonplace. They would no longer be special. No, you just need to be a little bit better. But you need to reach for it, each and every day. Improving your life is like improving your squat. You think you know what you’re doing and it can’t get any better. But it always can. Always. So, return to the basics. Squat. Check your feet, your ass, your chest. Is everything where it should be? Maybe your weight could shift a little back into your heels. Think and try one perfect squat. Rise. Close your eyes. Then squat again. Slowly. Not 10 fast, not 50 fast. Just one. Think and breathe and stay in that moment. Feel what one perfect squat really feels like. Now, open your eyes. And go chase that feeling in the rest of your life. Be better, everywhere. – Lisbeth Darsh

Non CrossFit quote:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

  1. Way to go Doug. You will have to show of those breaking skills as a post WOD workout one day.
    24:58 – Modified Pheezy (115# FS & PJ/195# DL/9 unbanded pull-up/heels to the heavens instead of TTB/half of my ugly push-ups were “regular” and half from knees).
    Written out like this I am not sure I did the same workout as everyone else. Nonetheless I will take it. Good work noon class.

  2. 24:54 as Rx’ed. I kept getting stuck on the Push Jerks. I almost jerked all 5 on the 3 round. Toes to Bar were definitely the killer in this WOD.

  3. 21:11 …95# pj and fs, 195 DL, subbed knees to chest, red band after first round…tough workout
