From CrossFit Lisbeth, Words of the Day: CrossFitisms

When life hands you lemons . . . get them off the mats, you’re going to slip on those things.

If you don’t have something nice to say . . . you must be in the middle of the warm-up. Holy sh**.

Life’s like a box of chocolates . . . but who eats that crap anymore? Sugar’s gonna kill ya.

The early bird . . . is in the 6am class.

Stupid is as stupid does . . . but that can be kinda fun.

Every cloud has a silver lining . . . but those Nike Romaleos have metal in them. Sweet.

Easy come, easy . . . must be at the globo-gym because it sure as hell is not here.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Because CrossFitters weren’t around then.

A quitter never wins and a winner never . . . drops an unloaded bar. Ever.

We’ll cross that bridge when . . . it’s on the 400m sprint. Otherwise, f*** that.

The bigger they come, the harder they . . . drop that deadlift.

The tough get going when . . . they get to Regionals.

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here. (Oh wait, we don’t have to change that one.)

    I am GIDDY over this WOD! WOO HOO! Way to go Ryan!

    For those of you who haven’t ever experienced a WOD of “for time, but every minute on the minute do___”, a word of advice: Do as many OHS as you can before the first minute is up. Once pullups enter the equation, things can slow down really quickly. 50 reps is very manageable, just do as many as possible in the first 60 seconds.

    At breakfast this morning there were a couple of guys that had never seen my favorite youtube video of all time. I guess we just don’t understand all the passion and hard work it takes to organize a major online video game assault.

    Here it is. Leeeeroy Jeeenkins!

    Leeroy is genius. When I first saw that about 5 years ago, I’ll never forget – this girl walks into my office and is wondering why I’d fallen out of the chair and was laying on the ground fetal, unable to breathe, tears. I know a lot of gamers, which made it so damn funny.

    I’m new to this blogging idea. PC #235 which is a PR for me, but I still need to shake the bad habits I developed in high school. 2:47 metcon
