Thrusters (95 lb./65 lb.)
400m Run

Mackey’s Running Fran: 11:07 with a 20 lb. weight vest, followed by pictures from the Roosters!

Running Fran apparently wasn’t enough for the Roosters…..they end every class with Tabata.

    That guy’s not Mackey. He’s not wearing gay toe shoes.

  • July 2, 2010 at 6:21 am

    20 miles roady with the guy pictured above. 4 sprints each one worse than the next.

    This wod kicked my ass!!! No idea how long it took me.

    Fun Rooster class this morning – where is Killer???

    11:00 Rx

    A monumental day in CF7 history. I came in first place! There were doubters (Ryan) who put me in group 2, but I overcame the odds. A new age has begun. A better age.

    All jokes aside, I’m not certain how I beat Brent, Kyle, Newly, and Scott. Hopefully they can kick my butt on the next workout.

    Lots of new faces this AM and Lori is back!

  • July 2, 2010 at 7:33 am

    11:51 or 57 I think.. 50 something RX
    Tabata sit-ups, yep, Lori is BACK! 😀

    (I’m proud of myself for showing up, my sister is coming up on 45 hours of labor with her first baby and I was at the hospital till midnight and in bed around 1:30.. baby is still not here, please pray for her!)

    Nice work Eric, that was awesome!! And you were all like, “thrusters are not my thing.. running is not my thing… blah blah blah” good job!

    John, me and Lori wanna know what that website is to buy two rockin’ awesome jump ropes, the one you suggested..?

  • July 2, 2010 at 7:42 am

    Mackey that is sick! Great job!

  • July 2, 2010 at 8:17 am

    Faith-you can get jumpropes a couple of places….

    Buddy Lee Jumpropes are flat out the best.

    Again Faster has other ropes too. (David, you can get your lifting shoes here too)….

  • July 2, 2010 at 8:29 am

    This is specifically the one I have. I got it for a little cheaper on Amazon.com.

    I’ve never seen one of the new Again Faster Revolution Ropes but that’s what I’d buy from them.

  • July 2, 2010 at 8:54 am

    14:48 Rx weight, pullups – approx half without band and half with, running Rx

    Eric had hit a wall and bounced off with a vengence. Nice.

  • July 2, 2010 at 10:14 am

    The hens like to do tabata post wod because they never go hard enough in the first place.

  • July 2, 2010 at 10:43 am

    AHHHHHH!!!!! JOHN!!!!!!!!! I cannot BELIEEEEEEEVE you just said that!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOO OFFENEDED!!!!!! >:(

    Ryan!!! John needs to be suspended from CF7, that is just unacceptable.

    I can’t believe you said that.

    You, my friend, are such a jerk.

  • July 2, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Faith, I never said “blah blah blah” quit trying to put words in my mouth.

    Also whisky I recall you joining in on tabata post workout a couple of times.

  • July 2, 2010 at 11:26 am

    Channel some of this animosity to your workouts and skip out on the tabata.

  • July 2, 2010 at 11:28 am

    Probably because I half assed the workout like you guys do. It’s contagious at 6 am.

  • July 2, 2010 at 11:56 am

    Whiskey-Ryan and I said the same thing this morning. Ryan announced “we have decided if you guys can do tabata, you didn’t work hard enough” – haha…. (we are teasing of course.)

  • July 2, 2010 at 11:57 am

    4:30 class – can someone please take some pictures and send to me? I was planning on being there but cannot go. Thank you!

  • July 2, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    12:25 Rx. Eric, out of curiousity are these run of the mill ‘roids your taking or is this some of the new designer stuff? I think it may be time to start the mandatory drug testing program at CF7. Either way, great job. I think I counted 18 roosters this morning…who’d a thought.

  • July 2, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    Power clean PR 230lbs
    Weighted Dip PR 118lbs

    75 burpees for time tonight before beer pong. I’ll let you know how that goes. Hopefully sub 3 min.

  • July 2, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    David – you wrote “running Rx” – were you crawling before??

  • July 2, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    15:59 Rx
    Great wod, but totally kicked my butt.
    Thanks Amie on advice on thrusters. I was so concerned on doing them correctly, Didnt want Ryan saying anything, could not afford to start over on those things.

    Also.. great finish Eric, and glad to see Lori back . “hens” (did John actually say that) I think I’ll have to kick his ass for that remark!!!! And I do recall, you have several times participated in the tabata!!! Maybe you didn’t work out hard enough! haha

  • July 2, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    This blog business is turning into a soap opera. Not very inspiring or motivating. Ridiculous.

  • July 2, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Well I don’t have a 20# vest so I used 135# instead of 95#. So as rx’d w/135# 18:07.

  • July 2, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    Amy, your reading comprehension must be as poor as the hen’s performance. I said above that you guys are contagious which led to me not trying as hard as I could.

  • July 2, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Haha John… I’m Lol I have had a headache all day and obviously can’t see or read.
    I take it back….. I can do that can’t I ??

  • July 2, 2010 at 6:20 pm


    Paukune beat me by almost a full minute today – but I had this stupid idea of pressing Manton on the run, which is to say at 100M into the first run he left me in the dust and I was gassed.

    I really need to stay up late one night and work out with the Guinea in the morning, mainly because of David’s reference to having done the run portion of today’s WOD “Rx.”

    What does non-Rx running look like? Roller skates? Or maybe that thing Andy does of just turning around midway?

    Mrs. Rue(i)z taught today’s 4:30 today. Getting way leaned out and very muscled up going into the CrossFit Games.

  • July 2, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    Agreed Debbie.

    I don’t like Whisky anymore..

  • July 2, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Gotta agree with John on this one, Faith. You should be so utterly and completely spent that the idea of working out one more minute is just obscene.
    I usually throw in some GHD situps when I PURPOSELY go half-ass… like anything with Running. Or Burpees. Or Thrusters.

  • July 2, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    It is good to be back!!! The tabata pic is cracking me up….looks like I’m sporting a new coiffure(sp?) Eric, I’m so proud of you!!! I was sucking air so loudly I missed the celebration and glad to know we were “bookends” for this one….I came in DEAD LAST?*#**!!…and my experience was NOT a first. haha

    Happy 4th of July weekend everyone!!

  • July 2, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Everyone loves me. Otherwise you wouldn’t waste your time replying to my BS. It’s ok. I’m kinda friends with you guys, too.

  • July 5, 2010 at 8:21 am

    Whisky bashing is imp approved, i hate him from here.

  • July 5, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    I peed on your doorknob when I drove through Belton today, imp. Tell the wife I’m sorry.
