Re: Do you ever dream about WOD while sleeping?

Yes, which is exactly why I hate doing Crossfit in the morning. I stress about the WOD and dream about it all night. I'm an afternoon Crossfitter but have recently started CFE so I'm working out in...

Re: Josh Everett and his "other gear"

You know, sometimes I think it's best to not even look at a stopwatch when doing the workout. I've found that I will sometimes look at the watch and if I'm doing ok on time I will coast a bit. Some...
