November Achievements

10.7.13_CFF_15Before the turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and stuffing kicked in, we had several folks set and achieve goals in November.  As you’ll see, many of them were competition related.  The beauty of participating in any type of physically challenging event is that it turns daily workouts into something more, training.  Anyone can exercise, training has a purpose, and can help push us to accomplishments we didn’t know we were capable of.  On to the goals!

  • Amanda L. finished in the top half of the women’s scaled division at the Southie Showdown
  • Brennan completed all the workouts at the Southie Showdown, including a couple of PRs
  • Brooke snatched 105#, did Grace in under 5:00, and got 30 double-unders in a row
  • Caitlin took part in her first competition, and got toes-to-bar in a WOD
  • Darlene climbed a rope, in a WOD no less
  • Tyler finished in the top 10 of the men’s scaled division at the Southie Showdown

10.7.13_CFF_18Congrats to all!  Moving forward we’re going to try something a little different.  While short term goals are important, they are often a part of building towards bigger, long term goals.  Beginning with December we’re going to have a place on the board for monthly goals, as well as your goals for 2014.  Got a goal for the new month or the new year?  Put it on the board!

Help put together a care package from CFF!  On Saturday, December 14th, with Garo’s help, CrossFit Fenway is hosting an invasion WOD to put together care packages for 1SG Russ Watts, 2LT Michael Polanski, and 1LT Russell Cotter. All three are deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. We’d like to send a care package on behalf of CFF to show support and appreciation for their service. If you’re donating to the package, no preregistration is required, and the Saturday session can be an extra one for you that week!

    SJ: 105#, ties my 1RM. Should have tried heavier.
    WOD: 12:44 with 2:1 singles, HR push-ups, and 95#

    Great job 6:30, and kudos to November goals people. Special S.O. to Brooke who was a total goal over-achiever.
