I really can't emphasize how much I love this website. It borders on obsession. I check the damn thing every 10 min after 9pm EST until I see the new WOD. Why do I do this? What's my problem? I'll tell you:
I heard of CrossFit through a link on www.thesealquest.com. I started CrossFit on 4/1/05. The WOD that day was:
21-18-15-12-9-6-3 Rep Rds. for time of-
35# DB Burpee/Hang Squat Clean/Thruster
This was the hardest thing I had ever done. I have no idea how long it took me, I only know that I finished. I was completely wrecked afterwards. I was also completely hooked. I started following the WODs exclusively, eschewing the bodybuilding/powerlifting workouts that I had done in the past for football. I've been doing the WODs for a steady 8.5 months now, and here are some of my accomplishments:
Pullups from 8 to 25
Pushups from 50 to 90
Mile from 7:55 to 6:58
Deadlift from 385 to 415
Fran = 4:22
Elizabeth = 4:30
Chelsea +1 completed
FGB from 286 to 344
Bodyweight from 220 to 194
And many more amazing (to me) PRs...
Basically I just wanted to thank Coach and all of the contributors to this fantastic revolution called CrossFit. I owe more than I can ever repay.

That had to be the most difficult WOD I've been through and that was after consistantly doing the WODs for several years. Kudos to you for finishing!
Great improvements - keep up the good work.

Just to clarify my fraudulent Liz time, that was recorded with 1:1 bar dips and power cleans. This time I'm going to suck it up and attempt squat cleans (though I suck terribly at them) and 3:1 bar dips (can't wait til my rings get here!!!).
