Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

And we're going to spell "strategies" correctly this time. Cool.

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

My plan is to get a tan in first, make sure my beard looks good, find a top that makes my arms look decent...
After that its all down to luck!

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

My strategy for 14.4 is:

1. Sweet potato hash browns for breakfast.
2. Wear cool socks.

After the announcement, I may develop a more specific strategy.

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

My approach so far has been:
  • Sit on couch and eat pizza (Hawaiian pizza; braised pork belly with fresh pineapple and basil) while watching the WOD broadcast.
  • If I can reasonably do the workout, then do it at some point within the week. Don't treat it differently than any other WOD.
  • If I can't reasonably do the workout, then blow it off and then lovingly mock my friends when they do it, acting as if I could have done it better. Give them all sorts of advice about what they should do or should have done, even though I can't do it myself.
  • Make excuses about how I would have totally killed that workout if only my knee, elbow, ankle, shoulder, or self-esteem wasn't injured.
- Mark

Re: 14.4 Tips and strategies

Posts 4-7 are all you need to know to beat CrossFit. Anything after that is superfluous.

Also, honorable mention for the "short shorts" in post 3. Solid contribution.
