You never forget your first…

This little nugget of fitness was the very first “long” workout we had during our latest cycle of programming.  I would be remiss if I didn’t have you guys give it another shot after two solid months of training.  I hope you guys tackle this beast and show it just how much fitter and endurance’ier you have all become.

The second time is always better anyway,

Dear Quads,

I know the 9 of us have gone through a lot this year already.  I know that sometimes I push you into doing things you didn’t want to do.  I know that I don’t stretch you enough and should mash you more often.  I just ask that whatever happens today, I don’t want you to be mad at me the rest of the week.  Hopefully by this Wednesday, this is something we will look back on and laugh.  Perhaps by Thursday, you will stop being sore and I can stop walking funny.  I promise to only do this to you once a year.

With love,

Remember me?…

For those of you who have never done this workout, this was voted “most hated workout” of 2012.  For those of you who have done it already, you know it gets a whole lot easier after your final run and 8 Burpee Wall Balls have been completed.  Just be glad we are not doing it with Tuesday’s mugginess…it’ll actually be warmer.

Cue evil laughter,



Also as a quick heads up!

Who better to tell the story of this workout, then the creator of the WOD (and CrossFit) himself.  Click here for a very loud intro, but also for the sweet tale of how this workout came to existence.

It is a story of love, hate, and fitness,
