Great article about the Tough Mudder and Crossfit. I could not have said it better. That was exactly how I felt after completing two Tough Mudders. That being said, Tri-State Tough Mudder in November, any one interested?

Charles said...

My posterior chain is fried. I NEVER thought I'd be happy to see burpees in a WOD.

Stephanie Vincent said...

30 seconds of rest aka just enough time to reset the clock. :)

Jen Naspinski said...

Fab, I am planning to do the one in November. My first time. I must be nuts!

Great job this morning! Miranda, way to crush WOD 1! Danielle - welcome to CFKOP :) It was great having you in class today; hope to see you again next Wednesday!

Charles said...

It looks like I left my jump rope. It's the frayed one with the white tape on one handle. Please don't throw it out. Thanks

Nina said...

Did the tough mudder in April at Bear Creek..very brutal..I think we saw every single slope not to mention the surprise of 2 extra miles then expected.. Considering the tri-state will keep you posted :)

karen largent said...

i'm kinda interested in tough mudder, but also scared of it.

Danielle Sig said...

Hey! It was nice meeting everyone this morning! Tough WOD, but great job!!

Chris P. said...

what's MF for Miranda?

Danny said...

I agree with Mike, that was a great article. Here are some of the obstacles that were along the 10 mile course http://toughmudder.com/events/new-england/mount-snow-course-map-2011

Nikki said...

MF = mental floss on the ring dips

Miranda said...

I might be interested in the Tough Mudder, will let you know closer to that time!
Welcome Danielle!
Nina we need to wod more!

For Game of Thrones newbies, this is a good spoiler-free (though commenter's may ruin that) character reference:


steph v said...

considering the tough mudder in November I would imagine is whole different undertaking than April-Sept! being wet and cold must be extra special.

Peterson said...

So I just re-read the workout and realized that I did 10 DU's instead of the 15 each round. Only 10. So once Cate posts my "results," please take them with a large grain of salt as I just flubbed this one mentally. :-/

Charles said...

No more Margaritas for Petterbutt. ;)

Peterson said...

Ohhhh. Good idea Charles. I'll just blame the wife!

Christina - Paper Rock Scissors said...

I did the first part of this WOD at my house, post-lawn mow. 7 rounds of 10 burpees/15 DUs. While I still suck at burpees, I can still bang out some DUs, which made me happy. That is all.

I will fall off the face of the earth again...now.

Nikki said...
