She is so amazingly beautiful. Congrats.

Baz was the happiest guy ever last night @6pm. She is a beauty, and thankfully, no beard!

Woke up with Aces High by Iron Maiden, very stuck in my head. Just sayin'. But my latest music obsession is Jack White. Genius.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTom

Congrats! She is absolutely gorgeous.

Khaver, a mega Mazel Tov to Nora and yourself! Myla is beautiful - you two are so lucky.

Much love to all three of you.

Congratulations Baz and Nora! What a beauty, enjoy your glorious babymoon.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBethany B.

Baz and Nora - congrats! She's beautiful!

Music obsession - The Transplants. One of our house-mates in PR introduced me and I'm hooked. Also, all of the doom metal on David's new post-Amsterdam playlist. Not the stuff on the Catchy Jamz playlist though ;)

I am emerging from several years' isolation in Latin music exclusively. Turns out there's a lot of stuff I missed.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermichele

I for one think that at some point we need to put on some Hector Lavoe, Tito Nieves, Oscar D'Leon, whatever Michele likes, and see some of her shines!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJR

Welcome Myla! and congrats to Baz and Nora! What a cutie!

can i just say that as much as i love cfsbk, if the soundtrack at cfsbk starts to resemble the soundtrack at california strength, I am done.

congrats baz!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSameer

Yesterday my partner and I alternated rounds of 10 and finished in about 9 minutes. I went pretty much all out, but because of the recovery time I didn’t suffer very much. At the end, I was tired, but probably could have gone for another few rounds without substantially suffering or losing pace.

During Crossfit Open Workout 12.4, I finished 133 wall balls in 12 minutes, and was a broken man at the end. I did the first 50 largely unbroken, and then strung together as many as I could, which was generally around 5 or 6, while keeping the rest as short as I could manage, which was not very short.

Notice that in both workouts, I held almost exactly the same pace. During 12.4 I did 11 reps per minute, and yesterday I did 11 reps per minute (including my partner’s work time, but not his reps, obviously). Working with 100% recovery time between rounds of 10 reps was exactly as fast as working at what I thought was my best pace.

Corbett, I love Shuggie!

Music Obsession:

John - that is a great lesson right there.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFox

Congrats Baz! The new-parent-WOD: 100 poopy diaper changes for time.

6am with Coach Lady Fox. Did Sunday's WOD:

1000m row
3 rounds of: 10 135# clean and jerks, 10 chest to bar pull-ups
800m run

19:59 Rx'd. I love to row and I love to run. But my stamina for cleans is terrible and I can't string together more than two c2b pull-ups in a WOD.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeter

Congratulations to BAZ, Nora and Myla!

Does anyone want a bunch of free flattened moving boxes?? I need to get rid of them quickly, perhaps someone is moving or knows someone who is.

Email me at david AT CrossFitSouth..

Julie: It's the goals/accomplishments board, right under Yoda between the bathrooms.

I has been bad. I didn't put a goal up for April, I let my double under practice slip, and I am correspondingly crappy at them again. So my goal for May will be the same as my goal for March -- practice those suckers every time I come in the gym, so 3x/week.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterStella

Yowza, that’s a cute baby there! Congratulations to you and your wife, Baz!

Congrats also to all the accomplishments!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDMak

I am sore from wall balls with Julie yesterday. We killed it.

Current album obsessions are Joy (Phish), Oh No (OK Go), When the Pawn (Fiona Apple), The Last Five Years (Jason Robert Brown).

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKH

Nice work Baz!

2 Box squats every thirty seconds for 12 rounds @ 55% of max--125#

200 Wallball partner wod w/ Chris J--we lost count at the end and may have done 220--9:10 (20, or 22, sets of 10)

I also hit a new pr this month--25 DUs.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeter H.

Congrats to the Zimbler's! Myla is precious and I can't wait to meet her!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterlady fox

Thanks Stella! I had no idea that was there, more focused on peeing.

KH and I most definitely killed it - Team Morning dominates!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJules

Congrats to everyone and their PRs!

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKeith W.

Congrats Baz & Nora! Myla is beautiful.

Stella - my post didn't show up yesterday re: crossfits in Chicago. I've been to the 2 you mentioned. But, I'd actually recommend Windy City Crossfit if you can make it there. If not, I'd go with Crossfit Chicago. Have fun!

May 1, 2012 | Registered CommenterRickke


I got two of my May goals in one night tonight! First, I scored a goal during my soccer game. I think this was my first run-of-play league goal in about twenty years. Second, I successfully did a Kruyff and a step-over to beat defenders. Watch out this old goalkeeper has some moves!

I am so incredibly happy to be fit enough to play again. There aren't words for how much I love to play and I feel incredibly lucky to have found folks like at CFSBK to get back into shape with.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBilly

Came in today for 6PM class after a disastrous day diet wise.

Sunday's WOD @115lbs cleans (ditched the jerks as I had just pressed), and 10 strict chins.

Finished in 17:35. Many, many thanks to Jack for cheering me on.

May 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSamir Chopra

Thanks Rickke! Windy City is a bit farther from where I'm staying than the other two, but it looks really easy to get to on public transit. I will give it a shot.
