Next Benchmark?

DSC_0653

Someone asked me today “When’s the next time we’ll do Fran?” I sarcastically asked, “The next time we do it.” It kind of slipped and I didn’t mean to sound cynical (I did immediately apologize). But, it did make me think about how seldom we actually do benchmarks. And, it’s not completely intentional (though many of our considerations include equipment, space, time, ect). I, for one, enjoy being creative when programming. But, even with a constantly varied program, we do need to routinely retest WODs we’ve done before, even if it’s purely to measure our progress. So, with some input from you, what’s a WOD (benchmark or not) we’ve done before that you’d like to do again? What’s a benchmark WOD you’ve never done that you’d love to try?

    The day I do a sub-5:00 rx’d Amanda will be the day I can die happy. I might be able to do it rx’d now, but it would take me roughly 60 minutes, I’d dehydrate from crying, and all the members of the gym would have to have earmuffs to negate the massive amount of cuss words screamed in frustration! So maybe I won’t try Amanda yet….
    One I haven’t tried since I was relatively new to Crossfit is “Eva”. It took me just under an hour, at 57:38 rx’d (wrote it down ;) I think I could do better now! :)

    Thanks, Sarah. We may do a time-capped Eva & Amanda soon. I suppose no one else is interested in doing any particular benchmark . . .

    Lloyd, no one wants to play your sick, sick game. #trap
