What've You Got?

If your Crossfit experience has been anything like mine, you’re seeing crazy improvement in all sorts of areas--speed, strength, power, and coordination are all going through the roof. You don’t know exactly how the programming works, and you don’t care. As long as you keep setting PRs, you’re a happy camper.

Sorry, guys. This doesn’t work for me. I’m calling all of you out. I want to know what your goals are and when you’ll get them.

Through this process—making our goals public—I hope we’ll be able to support each other and monitor our collective progress. Whether you’re at Crossfit Boston or out in the Internet ether, you can count on me to light a fire under your ass.

Like Babe Ruth pointing to the stands, or Broadway Joe assuring a Super Bowl victory, I want to see some pomp. What’ve you got?

My goals:

1 month (by 6/9/06)
2.5 x Bodyweight deadlift (425#)
Two consecutive double-unders
Cindy, 16+ rounds

2 months (by 7/9/06)
A sub-six minute mile
Front squat 200#
Snatch 135#
30 consecutive pull-ups

6 months (by 11/9/06)
A sub-minute 400m sprint
A sub-44 minute Murph
Clean & Jerk 160#
Fran, Rx’d, sub-8 minutes

The first trial comes this Thursday, in the form of Cindy. I’ll update the whole world (or at least the three people who read this blog) when the attempts are made.

Post your one month, two month, and six month goals to the Comments section. Don’t leave me hanging!

The attempt at Cindy has been moved to Friday. I need to recover from Wednesday's push-a-thon at Crossfit Boston. Who's the slacker now?
