Synchronized WODing with Marcos and McDowell

Volunteer Request

As some of you know, David is working hard on the CrossFit North East Regional which is being held at the end of this month.  This Sunday CFSBK will be hosting a small handful of volunteers who will be judging at the Regional this year to help them devleop their eye and skills.  We're looking for 2-5 people from the gym to volunteer as Demos so that they can test their eye against a couple of people.  You won't be asked to do 225lb hang cleans, but you should have a basic handle on most movements we do and not have significant range of motion limitations.  Please contact CFJudgesNorthEast@gmail.com if you'd like to offer your time and services. The North East Regional appreciates it!

When: This Saturday from 1pm-2:30pm

Good Luck Ragnarians!

Today marks Day 1 for both of CFSBK's Ragnar Relay team's 2 day, 1 night, 200 mile race.  We've got a boatload of folks competing and wish them the best of luck over the next two arduous days. Below is the race description and team rosters.  Both teams have the SAME start time... who will finish first?!

Race Description
Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. A team is made up of 6-12 individuals; each individual runs 3 legs. The legs of the race vary in difficulty and distance, from 3-8 miles, allowing elite and novice runners to run together. Over 2 days and 1 night, teams run across 200 miles of the country’s most scenic terrain. Pair that with crazy costumes, inside jokes, a great finish line party and unforgettable stories. Some call it a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant. We call it Ragnar.  Both teams will race on May 11-12

Go Ragnarians, you crazy bastards!

6am with coach Nick and the Smiths. Worked up to 265 x 2 for tomorrow's FSQ and got 10 rounds + in the WOD.

Good luck Ragnar runners.

6am with Coach Nick. Hit 235# for a front squat double. 5# more than last weeks triple. Feeling pretty run down today or I might have gone higher. 9 rounds + 2 box jumps on the WOD. I seem to have tweaked my neck at the very end of the WOD and it is now stiffening up nicely. I see some lax ball work in my near future.

i am watching the live feed of the CF regionals, central east (Fronig's division.)

The feed is much better, plus there's a live chat scroll (alternatively interesting and annoying.)

you can't watch the online stream? that's all i'm doing - not watching it on espn3.

i'd post the link but then my comment would get eaten.

I went on ESPN3.com and when I click the CrossFit link it asks me to name my provider and enter my account name and password. I have Verizon dryloop service at the gym and you need verizon broadband or FIOS TV.


May 11, 2012 | Registered CommenterDavid Osorio

dude you can watch it at the crossfit games site. on the internet. regardless of your provider.

Internet? What is this.

7am with the morning nerd crew and Coach Nick who is our proud leader. Awesome weirdness abounded with stories of live rats hitching a ride on random cycling feet and wicked old skool tunes. Hello! Dandy Livingstone's version of Rudy! The original! Sweet morning ska love.

Stupid backslide means no fast anything for me today so did FSQ and Push Press, good times.

Go fast Ragnarians - I'm beaming you all my quickness. I wanna hear Stella going all She-Ra here in the BK, woo!
