    I’m not sure I’de say that this workout was my “least favorite” but I think it was definitely one of the hardest workouts I’ve done…the lumberjack 20 gets my vote…I didn’t even Rx it and I felt like puking…I don’t enjoy heavy weight ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do not like EVA, I am afraid to post it because it will probably come up! Sunday’s Christmas workout looked pretty wicked , I was recovering from the flu and was a spectator but I felt everyones pain! Wendy you do come up with some wicked ones especially on the main sites rest day!!!

    My least favorite was the one that Bo and I did when we visited Gainesville Crossfit- they called it Jackie and a half. Jackie is:
    1000 meter row
    Thruster 45 lbs (50 reps)
    Pull-ups (30 reps)
    But they didnt have rowers and subbed sumo deadlift high pull – 100 reps with 45#. Then added
    SDLHP 45# (50 reps)
    thruster 45# (25 reps)
    pullups 15 reps
    Very very bad.

    Eva is a nasty girl just because it took me a very long time and that one we did with 6 rounds of 400 m run and I don’t remember if it was 20 or 25 burpees but you had to jump up and hit the bar each time you did a burpee or it didn’t count. Brutal!

    Any WOD where you drive up and see members of the previous class still working. Guess that means Eva is up there!
    Oh yeah, and currently anything with box jumps…at least for me. ๐Ÿ™

    This is an easy one. Evil Eva, Eva, then Eva! Debbie is right. When you walk in and the class before is still going you know it’s bad!

    I hated Eva also, but I think I still hate Kelly the most…
    150 24″ box jumps with running and 150 wallballs….
    Kelly must have been some chick that dumped Coach Glassman – then told everyone around town that he had a small pee pee, so now we have to pay for her sins.
    I’m just sayin.. it could have happened.

    Within 24 hours after “Angie” I had an 8 inch scar down my chest and 12 IV’s and tubes throughout my body. She almost killed me….literally. I hate the name “Angie.” My sons will never be able to bring home a girl named “Angie.” The next time a girl named “Angie” aproaches me in any facet of life I really might think it is the angel of death. I heard the Rolling Stones song “Angie” the other day and the lyrics gave me the chills. It is safe to say that “Angie” is my least favorite WOD.
    On a lighter note it was great to see everyone the other day.

    John, you are looking good man. Keep up the healing.
    The answer to this question is like many other woman in my life, I refer to them as โ€œwhatโ€™s her faceโ€ they all came in and left some sort of scare. The question for the WDO ladies of cross fit is how long that scare lasts. Is it hours, days or even longer? The workout that I dislike the most is any one where Rob or Windy ask โ€œAre you ready?โ€ HELL NO, we are not. But we all come back and mentally say, โ€œ Thank you sir may I have another?โ€ I am still hurting from the 12 days of Christmas, thanks for putting new meaning behind that song for me. All is good and canโ€™t wait for the next Cross Fit girl to come into my life.

    This is weird, but I seem to only remember the ones I like and not the names of the ones I don’t. Eva sounds familar as one I didn’t like but Angie, I RX’d and never thought I could do that, so I liked it, not that I ever want to do it again or anything. I just know I hate anything that has burpees in it, like todays wod.
    John you look great, so good to see you out and about, I know we will see more of you soon.
