Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

Hey pool boy, do they offer swim lessons there? I was hoping to get more practice and maybe start some of the CFE workouts.

I just switched to night shift so I'm trying to get my body used to that. Is there a time that the CC gym isn't crowded?

Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

Hi all!
I just got in (literally, 5 hours ago) and would love to meet up with you! I am a morning person workout gal....thinking 5ish or so. My shift, from what i hear, will be 0900-2100.

Cdrocco@hotmail.com is my personal email, but I do plan on hitting up the pool and get back into swimming.

Look forward to meeting you all!
Cheers,
Carolyn

PS-thanks Jay T-hoe for sending me this link. you rock!

Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

I haven't heard from Nigel lately, but I think he's probably getting settled into his job. He was doing some evening work outs last I heard. I don't get off shift until 0700 so I'll be missing out on the fun. I'm up for working out on my days off though.

I will be passing through the 'Deid in August. I would like to meet up with some Crossfitters for a workout if you are still there.

Feel free to look me up in the global. I plan to be running through some of the hero workouts in August. I want my crew to finish the month with a mod'ed Murph.

Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

All,

How is CF training going?! I sent an email to everyone sometime ago, never heard anything in response. I've been meeting several CFers at the BPC, that haven't posted on the boards.

If anyone is interested in training with someone, shoot me an email njkeane@gmail.com.

Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

What's going on Nigel?

We've been crossfitting over here in our tents. I'm on night shift so my schedule is pretty hard to match up with anyone elses. We've managed to hang up some rings in here and the guys in the tent next to us have some Rogue rings of their own too.

Still stuck on bodyweight type exercises, but the rings have added enough variety to keep us all going.

Sunny,

Trying to make due at the BPC, hitting the CrossFit Football WODs. It's funny though, it seems I get an equal amount of people asking me questions about what I'm doing versus the amount of people who get ****ed cause I drop the weights. I love it!

Re: CrossFitters at Al Udeid, Qatar?

Yeah! That's awesome. We just made some kettlebags out here. Started out making sandbags to repair our walkway, then made sandbags for workout purposes. The guys in the tent next to us loved them so much, we gave the bags to them. They cut and taped the bags to form "handles," so we replicated that idea and presto - kettlebags! I think the cops get a hoot watching us walk around our area carrying them. They also work great for kb swings and thrusters.

I started doing some CFE running workouts. I think the people driving by when I rest think I'm either lazy or crazy for running in the humidity at midnight. I've been suckered into the cc cup events and I think what little crossfit I'm able to do is what keeps in enough shape to not look too bad.
