I wonder why I am not surprised at all with this picture!!!

Did Monday’s WOD since I have no idea how to perform ‘toes to bar’…maybe I don’t want to know.

Anyway, times were as follows for the sprints/runs – :42/1:37/3:47/1:36/:42

9:55 as Rx’d
kipped only a handful of toes to bar, rest without kip.
Still recovering from a nasty cold

HEY I have a copy of ‘EVERY SECOND COUNTS’ and would be more than happy to ‘lend’ it to anyone who is interested in donating $10 to Amy Lafleche to be used to buy basic sporting/crossfit equipment for the orphanage in China (they have a basketball net-thats it)as outlined below. Contact me at chantal_theberge@hotmail.com to reserve your time!

In August, AMY LAFLECHE will be travelling to the Warithang Zadou Orphanage in China for one month to volunteer and complete a documentary. The documentary will be screened across Canada to raise awareness and funds for the orphanage. Since her stay is too short to have formal English lessons, she will be teaching through art, music, and fitness. As part of her role as a volunteer, she will be teaching the orphans fitness and games – CrossFit style!

There are currently 180 children at the orphanage and they are accepting 50 new children in September 2009. Our organization does not use any money for administration or volunteer travel so 100% goes directly to the orphanage. Every year a group of volunteers goes to the orphanage to ensure all the money is used accordingly and gets to the right people (the children).

CrossFit Calgary is pleased to present Amy with $100 of Childrens’ Sport equipment for her visit.

For more information about the Himalayan Orphanage Project and for information on how you may help out, you can contact Amy at amy@laflechemedia.com.

D – 11:28 “toes to bar” were not fast or pretty.
Thanks Geoff!

8:13, THANKS FOR A GREAT CLASS Michelle!! Miss Chevious

“The Cory” as Rxd
5:56. Second row at 1:37, first row about the same. Did 3×10 and then pretty much 5s for the rest of the toe to bars.

Neil as rx’d 13:00
Judy as rx’d 11:22
Thanks Michelle for all your help

I’d already done an OPT workout but had to try this one because it doesn’t penalize skinny guys.
As rx’d: 8:54.

8:06 as rx’d

Toes to bar – ~ 1, followed by ~ 20 toes out in the general direction of the bar, then finished off with K2E ….other time would have been 10 hrs 38 minutes..
THanks, Michelle – great class. Encouragement appreciated.

Meant “…otherwise time would have been 10 hrs 38 minutes….

16:38 as rx’d
First row: 2:08
Toes to bar were really slow. Only counted completed ones, no attempts. Had quite a few misses throughout which ate a lot of time and energy.
Second row: 2:18
Thanks a lot Michelle for a great class and the push throughout the workout and especially at the end of the second row.

9:39 as rx’d. Thanks Michelle for the push on my second row. You are awesome!

Thanks for the push, Michelle! 10:58 toes to bar modified to knees to ALMOST elbows…

THANKS CHANTAL! So far we’re up to $200 in donations for fitness equipment. 🙂

as rx’d 11:10
couldn’t get the kipping going

Taylor, I don’t know where you get the idea I am going to destroy these workouts, because I can never sustain the kip for that many reps. In this case I kipped the first twelve or so, and did singles for the rest.


First row was 1:37 and the second was 1:33.


A few days late:
8:50 As Rx’d
(1:36/1:47 on the rows)
Only a random kip here and there on the Toes to bar – pretty tough WOD.
