Maybe I'm an idiot, or maybe the CF search engine just is kind of sucky (I vote for the latter), but, I tried to search for CrossFit Football, and couldn't find a proper link to an explanation of what this is. Can you direct me?

Thanks.

[B]NEVERMIND....googled it and found it.[/B]

Nancy - - yes; it's the latter.......I think there is a link, either in the small print at the left side of the Main Page below the menu buttons, and/or on the Affiliate Page., but since you already found it.........

1 min jump rope singles

[/B][B]1st Event- 1 mile run for time for time
2nd Event- 1rm deadlift (you will have 30 minutes to complete the first two events so rest as needed post 1 mile run)

This was a great WOD, though I don't think I've ever had such a "low" fitness score before.......

Marianne,

Thanks! I really like this lift - - I think if I can dial it in with a reasonable amount of weight and attain good flexibility (not necessarily in that order..;) ), I will gain a lot of strength and capability in the other lifts.

As for SBUX, I am a victim of the "Labor Optimization Program" at SBUX CA - - they have cut a great deal of hours to save money and unfortunately, they determined (while I was gone) that they really didn't need my position. The family is doing well; Cheryll still fights with her Fibromyalgia, but has asked me to help her with some flexibility movements and basic Oly lifts with PVC. We're also getting her acquainted with the C2...... Jen (our daughter) just received a transfer to a facility near us, so she'll be moving down with us at the end of the month.

Blessings to you and yours! I'll catch up on your log as I get time.....:D
