a great place to feel good

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” ― Steve Jobs 

What is this website about? DoubleUnderDogs. Mostly it’s about Crossfit. How it pushes and pulls and challenges and gives you blisters and makes everything else in life that much better as a result.  Not sure if it’s like this in every box, but it sure is like that here. Here, there is a community. A community hard at work. During the WOD’s, yes, but also hard at encouraging each other, at giving the extra push, or knuckle bump, or ‘You Can Do It..’ just exactly when you need it. And sometimes, that’s all that is needed.

Today’s WOD was a killer. Sometimes the gauntlet gets thrown down and you just gotta suck it up and accept the challenge. After reading the posting for today’s WOD I thought of about 100 different reasons why I didn’t have to go into CF today. I’m tired, it’s monday, I’m hungry, the dog needs to pee, I ran 4 miles yesterday, I deserve a break. Any reason, Any. Reason. Not to do it. But, in the end I showed up anyway. Sucked it up and did it. And once again am so much better for it, in my mind, and that’s a great place to feel good.

Warm-Up:

3 Rounds:

10 Hip Extensions

10 Pullups

then…

Snatch Deadlift Review

WOD:

I. Snatch Deadlift

3 – 3 – 3 – 3

Completed: First at 105lbs., then 135lbs. then 155lbs. and finally 175lbs.

II. For Time:

Run 1 Mile

100 Burpees

Run 1 Mile

Completed: In 30:19. Scaled down to 75 burpees in order to finish the last mile in the 30 minute window.

Before the WOD began the collective moan bore from fright could be heard throughout the triple-wide as the anticipation in class built towards this nasty-gram handed down with a twinkle and a smile. We were warned it was going to be tough. But, like true CF’ers when it was 3, 2, 1, Go… We went. Where else can you work out with a group of folks when the fastest or strongest of the bunch gives you the thumbs up and tells you you’re doing great as they’re inevitably passing you by. And they really mean it.
