    Hey all! I think I’m with Tom today. My body is asking me for a rest day! So I hope you all have a great Work out! See you all tomorrow!

    Tom & Redfoot,

    You missed a good one. Enjoy your day, though! I hope you get a chance to get out and play in the sunshine.

    What’s with everyone taking off? This workout was i-n-t-e-n-s-e. When I was driving home, my arms were shaking. The running we’ve added back to our WODs are kicking them up several notches. I’m going to have to move to the “silver class” although Corey wouldn’t tell me the age requirement.

    I did the 400m. And we’re hitting the trails for a mean mountain bike ride later today after work. Yikes!

    I ran (well, slogged) 400’s for the first time ever– 4 of the 5 runs at 400. I am NOT a runner unlike many of my 5 a.m. compatriots. I am waddling around my house tonight in pain. Someone please teach me how to run.

    Miriam and Seth, thanks for making me feel like I did the WOD with you today when I didn’t step foot in the gym, haha. Miriam, congrats on those 400s. They suck even more than the 200s, no? Seth, congrats on kicking boo-tay and for sharing with me and your staff. After I left, one of the guys said, “So, how much does this CrossFit cost anyway?” HAHA. I daresay you will have some more converts soon.

    Yes! Very different from our LSD runs. Getting back into sprint shape is kicking my butt! My lungs feel like they are going to EXPLODE every sprint! Good try Kim on the ‘silver group”! See even Corey thinks you’re not old!

    Miriam: practice the POSE stuff as often as you can. You don’t even really have to actually run to practice it every day…not saying you don’t have to practice it in a run…but, if, in a single day, you can find just 3 times to concentrate on the posture and do it for 5 or 6 steps…you have practiced the ‘form’ of the technique and it will add up. It’s good technique. ‘No Can Defend’ 😉

    Kim, you have to be over 50 to be considered in the “masters” group, but I am here to tell you that it doesn’t make a bit of difference. I’ve tried the “i’m to old to do this” angle and i get no sympathy. Whatever happened to respecting your elders?

    I don’t quite know what POSE is. I started CF in the early winter so the running portion of my WODs were short lived. I am aware it has something to do with running on the balls of one’s feet leaning forward to propel oneself, but that’s about it! Any good url’s or websites I can look at?

    I found the perfect motivation for running yesterday. There was a homeless looking man wrapped up in what looked like 50 blankets walking in the middle of the street. He also had a cane. All I could think was “nancy kerrigan/tanya harding”, so even as my legs were tiring my sense of self preservation kicked in, haha. Gotta love AVL!

    miriam: i’m sure the mainsite has vids…i’ve never looked. I bet Coach S will have POSE drills for us all one day very soon . 🙂
