Hey Stephen,
Nice job on the WOD. We all have those days. The main thing is that you did it. I listened to this CF Radio mp3 at work the other day. CrossFit Radio Episode 22 090119. It was very motivating. I really liked what this guy Boz said. It was an interesting story.

I have days like that too, specially when I feel like I am totally spent after a work out, I look up on the board and I am the slowest one, Ha.

Oh yea, those are my UCLA crocs :) My daughter was supposed to go there but changed her mind and went to UCSB. Thanks for the comment on my Helen. My running is slow but getting better.

Thanks, Terry! I feel a bit better this evening. Got in a nap and my stomach is settling down. Tomorrow's a rest day, so I'll take advantage of it.

I have a "Willamtte Dad" sweatshirt from when my daughter was going to go to Willamette U (up in Salem, OR), but she changed her mind too and went to Simpson U. up in Redding. Great school. BTW, thought you were to young to have a college - aged child...:D .

Helen is a nice, shorter metcon. I need to "visit" her again soon....with the idea that I should be able to do the runs now, not just row......

You are correct - - wonderful article!

BTW, Nick (from your affiliate) is a strength (or at least, barbell) coach, correct? I think I need to pop down there for a couple of one -on -ones soon. Can't seem to dial in my form on some lifts and don't want to be the "anchor that keeps the boat stuck at the dock" during my cert....:rofl:.

Take care!

Saturday morning I did 5 sets of 15 pull-ups and 15 push-ups at the hotel I was in. That's it for the weekend. I am envious of everyone's work. I am hoping to attempt "Barbara" Monday morning.

Hey Mark,

Nice work, on the road, yet!

Take care. Probably going to give Barbara a go myself tomorrow.

Nice Job on the WOD Mark! Good luck with Barbara.

Love the new Avatar Stephen!

Hey Check this out...I can't help share. I planned on documenting my CrossFit journey so my daughter is taking pictures of me every 30 days (in shorts with no shirt). Maybe I will share them some day when I don't feel so fat. Anyway I was comparing the pics from day 1 to day 30, I didn't see much difference...kind of bumming (I am not a patient person). But I definitely feel different.

I have been using the weigh in feature on beyondthewhiteboard.com, I also us it to track my work outs.
Anyway here is my data after 30 days of CrossFitting and zone diet. I celebrated last night with 3 pieces of pizza and a beer. The lean mass and body fat% is calculated based on your height, weight, neck and waist measurements inputs.

1st month of CrossFit 12-23-08 to 1-25-09
Weight; lost 8 pounds (223 lbs to 215 lbs)
Lean Mass; increased 4 pounds (157.9 lbs to 162.1 lbs)
Body fat; reduced 29.17% to 24.61%
Waist measurement; lost 2.5"

Today, did CFWUx3 w/assisted pull-ups and dips

Then attempted "Barbara"
Made it two rounds of 20 pull-ups, 30 push-ups, 40 sit-ups, 50 squats

My times
9:38 and 11:01

Squats were very slow because I still cannot do them with any rapidity without my injury hurting. Sit-ups are also hindered a little. Today was only the 2nd time I have attempted "Barbara". I only went 4 rounds the first time in March 2008, and the first 2 rounds were 2 minutes faster. I look forward to getting after this one again soon when I feel healthy. This is a real monster for me, and I must slay the beast.
