I'm bummed that I've missed a weeks worth of WOD's. Looks like killer ones too! But we've been busy around here:
http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8487.jpghttp://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8488.jpghttp://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8489.jpghttp://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8490.jpghttp://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8491.jpghttp://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8492.jpg

It's hard to see with the grass so tall right now, but we grow really big rocks around here, so digging 3' deep fence post holes and pounding t-posts is quite a workout. It took quite a few tries with the auger and a breaker bar to get the holes cleared. And being just 5' tall, clearing dirt from the holes equated to thrusters with a posthole digger. Too many rocks and no tractor meant moving peeler cores one at time, end over end - deadlifts-voila. Thank goodness it was downhill!

And we made this a family affair! http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/3499/8493.jpg

I don't have a home gym like Eugene's but we've got this:

So can I be excused for the missed WOD's?

NO!
You still have to stretch the fence!
Them augers are a lot of fun when you hit a big rock aren't they?
I have a perennial workout I do on my property. I attack my invasive species plants with an axe or machette depending on branch thicknesses. The Japanese Honeysuckle and Multiflora Rose have taken over a lot of the forest edge vegetation. The Honey suckle isn't too bad, but them Multiflora Roses have these long thorny branches that have this odd characteristic of attacking back and wrapping around me when I swing a machette at them.
Now, if I could just borrow a few goats...:wink:

Maybe end your WOD with some 5lb tricep kickbacks and you're there :-) (sarcasm is a gift)

Hey Donald, I've got a goat or two that you could borrow!

I'm not good with invasive plant species, but I'm now very up close and personal with poison oak. You'd think I'd learn by now not to do field work with shorts and tank tops. If a friend hasn't already claimed the name "Poison Oak Ranch" that's what our's would be called! I know milk thistle, star thistle and buck brush well too.

We're stretching high-tensile wire this time, I have a feeling it will be much easier than the field fencing.

A neighbor told us "You gotta like working the property because the work never ends." Man, ain't that the truth!

William, I can do those kickbacks with logs of firewood right?! :lol:

No, I was thinking of those nice pretty purple ones you see at the gym. Logs might cause calluses :-)

Veronica,

Where you live/work/play looks like my idea of heaven! I live in concrete hell and have aspirations to 'move to the sticks'. As for the wod's i'm sure you've redeemed yourself!

I missed a week's worth through being too busy at work and my pennance (given to me by 2 other CrossFit members!) is to:

1. do bicep curls with the o bar in the cage :-(
2. wear baggy, brightly coloured tracky bottoms
3. wear gloves + sunglasses + belt
4. backwards baseball cap
5. best bit 'til last.......at peak time in the gym!

Plus i've gotta take a photo and post it on the board to say sorry and to deter others from making the same mistake....lol

You got away with it lightly young lady! :wink:
:rofl:

Thistle? poison Oak? I guess runnin' nekkid in your neck of the woods ain't an option for you either, eh? The trick to working around and with Poison Ivy/Oak seems to be slathering some kind of barrier cream all over any exposed skin. Then when you're done, throw your clothes immediately into the washer and take a shower. Vaseline, hand lotion; anything like that. I don't get poison Ivy rashes. I seem to be immune, and can roll around in it. But if my wife so much as touches my clothes after I come out of the woods, she will get it BAD.
You do know that your goats love poison ivy and oak don't ya?
Karl, please be careful. If the people who live out in the sticks see you running around in an outfit like that, they might just string you up. I know they'd at least look at you funny.:rofl:
