Weird Stuff You've Learned From Crossfit

Looking for oddball stuff, not PRs or new insights to your dietary habits.

Here are a few of mine (giving credit where it's due):

1) How to Make a Bacon Bowl (GG)
2) How to Be a PR Slut (MB)
3) Where the Girl Power is.
4) How to do Pistols in Heels (JS)
5) How to Make a Crock of Pulled Pork (JC)

  • The aisle-by-aisle layout of the Tilton Lowe's plumbing department.
  • A 10' piece of PVC will not fit in a Subaru Forester, no matter how hard you try to close the trunk.
  • My windshield deductible is $50.

I've learned that the guys at hardware stores will make a zillion cuts in something if you are a woman.

Sonds like it's too late, but consider (a) tied to the roof rack (all Foresters come with them); you can tie the front end to the front bumper to keep it from bouncing around, or (b) run it diagonally from the left rear corner out the passenger window. It won't stick out (sideways) more than, oh, 2 feet or so . . . if you're careful, you won't kill anyone.

Re: Weird Stuff You've Learned From Crossfit

I've done competitive athletics most of my life (endurance sports), and I've had frozen lungs (frostbite?) from breathing hard in the cold, but not until Crossfit have I had my chest be sore the next day from breathing too hard!
