    Ok, since Angie happened last week, I keep saying, "I really need to give my pecs a rest. But ok, I'll do burpees again today anyway. But just today." Somehow, I keep finding myself saying that. So I wrote a little poem for yall. Here goes... Burpees in the morning, Burpees in the evening, Burpees all afternoon. When you go to CrossFit Durham Burpees are all you do! Well, as Burgener would say, "Yay Burpees!"

    Green eggs or ham? For many of us mortal’s burpee’s are a challenge. I see no issue with throwing in maintenance (5+/- burpees) into whatever wod. It merely helps those who are not good burpee’s to practice and get better with others support …this aspect too is part of community.

    oh hell, i'm just playing around. i actually love tossing burpees into workouts (don't tell anyone this). i just got a pretty good laugh out of swearing them off during the week long span that we were doing them every other day or so. and anyway, how else can i give greg hell for making me do burpees? ;) if anyone is inspired, feel free to post your own little jingle about burpees.

    Dave - now i know where you get your ideas for the WODs... Actually, if YOU goto minute 1:58 you will know how WE feel when you say "more butt!" or "deeper squat"!

    Tonight was really fun. I loved being there when the Foundations class was doing Fran. They really kicked some ass on that tonight! A shout out to all the new band kippers... yeah Bea and Melinda! That was amazing! Mandy, way to coach folks through that. As for the WOD, I feel great about power snatching 85lbs. I generally consider 95lbs to be my max, and I HAVE to squat in order to catch it. Being able to power snatch 85lb multiple times was new to me. Did the WOD in 10:18 (I could be a couple seconds off).

    Did the WOD Rx in 21:07. I hate burpees too, but they were rest time compared to the snatches. geoff and chad smoked this thing in 14 and 17 minutes rx, and geoff informed very loudly that "I didnt see a rest period prescribed in this wod." thanks geoff, you helped me push through there at the end.
