**If you finish your last round after minute 12, you have the option to go ahead and start another round before the 13 minute mark! (skip the last rest)

Scaling Guide: 3 – 5 rounds. Scale up: Hold the dumbbell overhead.

Coaching Tips: Get through the lunges and db snatches as fast as possible, then pace the row for 150m and then sprint for 150m (because of the forced rest). Make sure you maintain good knee/shin discipline on the lunges (don’t let the knee drift in or out past the toes), and keep your torso vertical.

What are you afraid of? What sort of stories are you telling yourself that hold you back?

In CrossFit, we find that most people hold back from learning or trying something new (like entering a competition) because they are afraid to look foolish in front of strangers and acquaintances.

The truth is, as it is with most ‘stories’ people tell themselves, reality is almost never as bad as the worst case scenario you dream up. Do not be afraid to put yourself out there! Our culture is to never judge or look down upon anyone willing to try so you’ll never have to worry about scaling too much, being last, or looking foolish.

Show up. Try hard. ‘Belonging’ to the group is automatic. Don’t let fears slow you down. -jj
