042412 Tuesday

General.

T-shirt update. Unfortunately we need to order 36 shirts per style and color for Reebok to do a run. Our plan is to get 36 male shirts and 36 female shirts with the Clausewitz quote. We will order t-shirts with the sizing data we have and get the foundation store to stock them. The foundation will put the shirts aside that we have buyers for and the rest we simply go on sale in the store. The problem is that there are already gray "Clausewitz" shirts for sale in there. To provide some variety we suggest getting the shirts in either red or blue. If anyone has MAJOR heartache or preference then post your beef to comments. You will not be obligated to buy a shirt because the foundation will own them.

Further, we need a t-shirt organizer person. Bridget is doing some organizing at the moment, Rich has the corporate knowledge regarding the foundation store. Both are leaving in June. We need someone who will be here next year to do a handover with Rich. Worst case Rich can probably get this bunch of t-shirts done, but it would be better to have an partner who can carry it on.

Australian Army Sergeant Brett Wood, 32, of Ferntree Gully, VIC, assigned to the 2nd Commando Regiment, based in Sydney, NSW, died on May 23, 2011, in Helmand province, Afghanistan, after insurgents attacked him with an improvised explosive device.

He is survived by his wife Elvi, his mother Allison, and his father David. Donations can be made in his name to the Commando Welfare Trust.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

When most of us complete this WOD it will be April 25th in Australia and New Zealand.

James- thinking of you on ANZAC day and how emblematic you are of your nation's proud history! I'm thankful to know our nations are allies and that I can call you my friend! Never forget!

Lance said...

I'm good with red or blue...after perusing my t-shirt drawer, I have quite a few of grey work-out Ts.

IMCF Hohenfels:

In the light of ANZAC Day, learned yesterday that the Australian cadet team that competed in the West Point Sandhurst Competition won the event.

For those that don't know, the Sandhurst Competition has been an annual competition, much like a Best Ranger or Ranger Challenge, between the cadet companies at West Point and Sandhurst Academy from the UK. The competition has grown immensely over the years since 1967 with 56 teams to include international teams.

Congratulations go out to the Aussies for thier victory - Beat the Brits!

IMCF Hohenfels: can you please send me an email. I'd like to see joining my local "affiliate". Blegreid@gmail.com

IMCF Hohenfels:

36:33 as Rx'd

Did the WOD outdoors again which may have been a factor but is so much more enjoyable.

Julie said...

Great WOD and I was smoked afterwards! Scaled to 55lbs and took 26.23. What a butt kicker!

Hopefully, I did you proud on ANZAC day James! :)

IMCF - West Florida this week. Well to say the gym I was in is not used to CF is an understatement. After wandering around trying to figure out what I could use/ adjust to make a workout I finally started dragging equipment around with about 15 people gazing on to see WTF I was doing. Oh and appareently they are completely against loud music or any music at all in this place. Found a rower, some contraption that was about 28 inches, and two strength bags (duffle bags full of sand with a bunch of handles on them) that came in about 92 lbs a piece.

I sub'd 500m rows for the run, did 28" burpee box jumps and used the 92 lbs bags for SDHP and Thrusters, came in at 27 min with the min rests in between rounds. Great workout. James happy ANZAC day. Cannot wait too see what tomorrow brings in the way of stares and and new ways to make the workout happen...

Ross said...

Oh I good with either Red or Blue for colors

Ed said...

26:33 Rx'd.

Our best to our brothers in arms on ANZAC day.

Greg M said...

27:23 Rx'd, worked out in the Aussie hood for ANZAC day with James and Debbie. Good WOD for "Wood" and for our brothers in arms from the land down under.

Paige said...

25:44 Scaled the weight to 55#

Was so thankful to have that 1 minute rest. It helped me to get through the thrusters without stopping knowing that I had a legitimate break coming. Good workout!

Erin Anderson said...

It is fantastic that we can recognize heros from various countries!

34:28, tried to do 65# but dropped to 45# on round 4.

Paige, nice work!

Jacob said...

Who picked up my jump rope? Meghan says somebody grabbed it because "they see me every day." Well, I haven't seen you and its been more than a day! I work out in the afternoons / evenings.

james said...

Thank you everyone for your recognition and commemoration of the ANZAC's. I was fantastic to have Debbie and Greg join me in the hood this morning. 24.40.

I am not sure if the minute rest was a good or bad thing.

Scott - thanks for the sports update!! I will be sure to remind my Allied classmates about this.

rob said...

IMCF(FWD) at Ft. Lee, VA. The first assessment is that Ft. Lee is not functional fitness friendly. A couple of co-workers joined me this morning and we did the best we could with OHS and barbell burpees. I could only load 80lbs on the 'aerobic' barbell.

10min AMRAP
10 x OHS (80)
10 x barbell burpee
6rds + 6 OHS

Tomorrow we'll try a tabata. There are no pull up bars in either of the gyms so we'll go outside and run on the street and do pull ups one of these days...but you better have your blue (not yellow) PT belt with you!

COL B said...

Debbie said...

28:35 Rx'd I think, right Greg?

After embarassing myself with not knowing what ANZAC day was, I went home and read all about it. Probably should have done this prior to the WOD.

Anyway, I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful guy from down under here with us. I have greatly benefitted from all his teaching and still am in awe of his awesome work capacity!

Great job this morning James.

Greg M said...

That is right Debbie

james said...

Thanks Debbie !! don't forget we started at with 30 seconds on the iPad ...is that your adjusted time or just the time when you finished

Greg M said...

That is the adjusted time. The time she posted is the correct time.

Meg Smith said...

You beat me to the punch, Jacob. Not sure who it was that grabbed it, but I know you told me you seem him all of the time...I'm going with either Reed or Mark. Please let one of us know (Jacob or me) so I don't have to order and pay for a new one.

Trying to keep to my "skill work and swim" routine for Tuesdays, but look forward to doing WOOD soon. I've had the "pleasure" of it before, and it's a great WOD. Nice work everyone!

Dan said...

T-Shirts: please do BLUE. Growing up a MICHIGAN fan, I tend to want to hurt people who wear red.

Wood - ugh. Poor showing for me today; shut it down midway thru round 3. Super disappointing in light of Anzac day. :-(

Arod said...

25:54. I started at 85lbs and dropped down towards the end to keep form and not die. I am down for the blue shirt. Great ANZAC day WOD..

Doug said...

Voting Blue on T-Shirts.

Jefrf Brown said...

Dan Kent I have your CAC card. Call me 2 913-240-9457 Mr. Brown

james said...

Mr Brown - Dan lives next door - I will let him know.

G. Scott said...

Good to know I am not alone in getting crushed by this WOD. Had to stop at the end of round three.

I vote for blue shirts. If they are Michigan blue, I will by two on principle.

Rob Graetz said...

I also hit three rounds and stopped, albeit due to time rather than tired (dang Tuesday homeroom). 22:41, did 65# for all sets of SDHP, and 65-65-45 for the thrusters. Right shoulder's still hurting from last Thursday's thrusters; thank goodness for 800mg Motrin! Also thanks to Dan for the fish oil suggestion, it seems to be helping.

Did Monday's WOD, scaled all.. Miserable afternoon heat added to suffering. Goats work post WOD.
