They didn't charge an arm and a leg this time for the #derrickrose 's, so I grabbed a pair. #nba #chicago #bulls #drose4

Just did Fran for the 1st time. I had to work on getting 5 thrusters clean in a row before I tried it. Shouldn't have rx'd, but figured I would give it a shot.

17:25 - it hurts like hell, but it will feel better when I beat that time. #crossfit #wod

The picture adds nothing to the post btw.

Fran was the first WOD that had pull-ups in it that I RXed.  The next time I did it, two months later, I shaved 5 minutes off my time and felt great.  I now look forward to benchmarks to see how much I beat my previous PRs by.

Got the #chromecast in. It does what it says it does. It brought my kitchen tv back to life, that had been turned off since December when I turned off cable. Can't wait for more apps.

I shed a crossfit tear tonight. I did 15 double unders in a row and 50 total during my WOD. It took me about a week to get from 0 to 1. It took a month to get 7-8 in a row. I have to throw a single in between to keep it going, but they get done.

I should have done a before and after video. Would have been a good comedy. #crossfit #milestones

Omg. I am a firm believer off crossfit style workouts now. All of my base style workouts have improved. I haven't lifted anything over 135 for about a month, and before I started crossfit, I hit some all time lows because I came off a 40 day vacation.

I did a 'max' day today and hit 315 on the bench for the 1st time in 2 years and I deadlifted 365 for the 1st time ever and probably could have done more.

My issue is with lifts like the jerk and press, and overhead squats. I only overhead squatted 105lbs for example. The bar position is weird and anything heavier will have me leaning forward with the weight.

I need some techniques to improve on these lifts.

Yeah it is fun! One thing I do after every workout is practice handstands. I do however many it takes til I do 10 good ones where I hold the position for 3seconds or longer.

I PR'd by 4:30 within a week on this WOD - 31:06 today

Three rounds for time of:
Row 1000 meters
20 Pull-ups
30 Box jumps, 20 inch box

Either I bs'd my way through the first one, or I got a quick beginners gain.

I know I put out this time, so we will see next week.

I thought this was cool. #evernote sent an email thanking users for being early adopters. 5 years goes by quick.

Tyler's first ever score attempt in Soccer/Football.

I am surprised since he has never played in his life. I will keep taking him to see how he likes it. #soccer #football #sports

Rare photo in uniform. I had just came back from a meeting, and didn't know they snapped a photo of me. They said I looked frustrated. I was.
