  1. What's annoying you today? Part the grievous

    Today was supposed to be the day my house was getting everything moved out to go into the new house. Because the attorney for the buyer didn't do the paperwork before they went on vacation we had to move our closing....
  2. It's watchable like watching a car crash. You really don't want to see it, you want to make sure everyone is ok...so you have to keep your eyes on it but hate yourself a little bit for it.
  3. Unfortunately...I think this IS our nice things.
  4. Exercise and Fitness - high intensity interval posting

    DU are a pain. literally...when I was trying to get them I looked like I had just walked out of Helga's House of Pain. One of the things that helped was doing them without shoes - not just because I didn't want to hit my feet but I also felt I got more consistent jumps. They really finally clicked in a workout when I didn't have time to think about them but just had to go. They still come and go to some extent but instead of failing on 2s I'm atleast getting to teens before I trip.

    NIce! We had 20 wall balls, 30 double unders and 10 burpees AMRAP for 12 min. Prescription was 20lb wall ball and 30 DU, I tried it at 30lb wb and 50 DU. Was miserable, but a great workout. Got through 4+10 rounds. 30lb wall balls are no joke.
  6. New D&D movie(s) on the way

    Like the TransFormers, I will go to watch it but I'm not holding out hope that it is going to be any better than the first few that have been made. I agree that they should take one of the existing and modify it - there will always be backlash that it isn't perfect (see North of the Board) - but I think going with known characters and settings will have a better chance of succeeding. THe first had Jeremy Irons and Thora Birch and still was painful to sit through, so names don't impress me with this story.
  7. ROBOTECH

    yes it does - I literally started a rewatch yesterday!
  8. Babylon 5: Always listen to Ivanova! Redux

    RIP Mr. Doyle....Garibaldi was a fantastic character in a great ensemble.

    just did a mile run for time - beat my time from last year by over a minute and no back pain or soreness from it! down to 6:29. I do want to redo it on a track - our mile is half up hill/ half down hill circuit.

    that's awesome! congrats! <fist bump> Got my first ring muscle ups yesterday. Hadn't tried them since Mar '15 but one of the coaches was watching me do a scaled version and told me I was doing the MU without knowing it, so right after the workout he marched me to the rings and said go. So I went. Was able to do one with a kip and one mostly strict. Now unfortunately I just made every subsequent workout that has muscle ups harder.
  11. How much money do you reserve for emergency expenses?

    I think some of it depends on what people consider available. If I was laid off from work I would get 44 weeks of severance and then we have the money in the bank and then we also have retirement plans we could touch if needed. If for some reason I was just fired with no severance, yeah, it would be the 10k in the bank which would be there to cover the time to get back to a job. To what you said above, that is also the reason why we also want to have multiple blocks of 3 months available.

    I don't want this to degenerate in pro v. con Crossfit, but there aren't Crossfit Pullups. Strict pull ups, kipping pull ups and butterfly are all just different skills. When I did Murph last year (the workout referenced above) I did it as strict, this year I did kipping. By next year I hope to have developed butterfly. They're just about efficiency of motion Speaking of that workout...I took almost 13 minutes off of my time from last year. Went from 49:59 to 37:02. I didn't do it with a vest, wasn't sure how my shoulder would handle it but I think that was the right choice. If I continue on this path, and I'm gonna do everything can to, I will do the vest next time. We also finished our nutrition challenge on Saturday - I finished down 17lbs, about 4 1/2% body fat gone and have visible abs! Not sure how many different PRs I hit during that 7 weeks as well, so was able to continue building strength and my endurance.
  13. How much money do you reserve for emergency expenses?

    Right now we're still building our 3 month buffer, our goal is even after we get that one done to continue to build multiple ones basically as investment tools. At this point it's just over $10k and is inaccessible unless we actually walk into the bank so that we don't transfer or ATM it to nonexistence.
  14. Am I the only person who doesn't like watermelon?

    Did you have a bad watermelon experience as a child?
  15. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: To Kill a Mockingbird

    she might not want to, but any work is better than none - bit parts in Robot Chicken are probably fun, but not really paying too well.
