Cindy and Helen and Grace – BFFs. Fran – not so much.


Every December my Crossfit box does something called 12 Days of Crossfit. It means if you’re brave (or insane) enough you’ll go 12 consecutive days and in the end there’s a party (but everyone’s so sore by then that they just roll around the floor on foam rollers and the beer stays untouched).

I lied a little bit there but there’s All The Truth in the soreness. I’ve done 8 days and whereas I can walk and sit, I just want somebody to take all my limbs and stretch them in all different directions so I feel fluid again. And by fluid I mean opposite of stiff as a plank.

We are flying out to Sydney tonight so I’m calling it quits after 8 days. I would have time today to go in at lunchtime but there’s Fran and Fran’s not a nice girl (thrusters and pull ups and possibly throwing up for time).

Some of the highlights from this year’s 12 days:

Rope climbs and burpees and running in a 20lbs weight vest

Sub 4-minute Grace (30 clean and jerks at 40kg) and almost Rx weight Isabel (30 snatches at 40kg, I did 30kg)

10:07 Helen time (PB) (3 rounds of 400m run, 21 kettle bells @16kg and 12 pull ups)

A Cindy PB (20 min of 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats)

And a totally mental workout yesterday called DVB which is this for time (see if you can wrap your brain around it):

Medicine Ball Run, 9/6kg, 1 mile
— then —
8 rounds of:
10 Wall Balls 9/6kg
1 Rope Climb, 15 ft
— then —
Medicine Ball Run, 9/6kg, 800 m
— then —
4 rounds of:
10 Wall Balls, 9/6kg
1 Rope Climb, 15 ft
— then —
Medicine Ball Run, 9/6kg, 400 m
— then —
2 rounds of:
10 Wall Balls, 9/6kg
1 Rope Climb, 15 ft

It’s been a fun 8 days but now I’m looking forward to 2 weeks in Australia and mostly just swimming and eating.

Here’s one last video from day 7:
