first 20 round cindy!!

May not seem like a big deal to some, but after 3 months of commited Crossfitting (a year of flirtiing with it before that) I hit my first 20 round cindy! feels great and just wanted to tell people that would understand and appreciate it viva la crossfit!

Hey dude, good work....

Make 25 your next goal! I'll bet you were pretty smoked after ;-) if you can hit a 20 round Cindy then try going for Chelsea as RX'ed.

Really great job! After about a month and 1/2 I just got a 21 round cindy last night, it is an incredible feeling you should feel proud. 100 pull-ups is no joke

Unhappy Re: first 20 round cindy!!

everyone out there who knows about cross fit will know its a big deal. looks nothing on paper, then the reality hits when you start. been cross fitting for a couple of weeks now, thought i was in for an easy workout when i read it!! i completed my first cindy a couple of days ago and now i hate her!!
managed 15 rounds, before landing in a crumpled heap!!
hopefully she wont be around for a while!!

Great job!

I haven't hit 20 yet, just 18 this week but I beat my old PR of 16. Quantifiable data showing improvement is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

Didn't do Cindy, but I managed 9 rounds of Mary, just 15 pull-ups short of ten rounds.
