    205lb thruster yesterday, which is a PR.

    1. AWESOME!!!
      I bet it was the "Cryo therapy" that you did this past weekend at the Gaylord Ice show. Active recovery!

    2. You may be on to something, Amy. Plus, Ellie was crying most of the time. "Crying Cryo Therapy". I'm going to sleep outside tonight and see how tomorrow goes.

    3. PRing like a boss!! Keep it up, Trav!!

  5. Clarification: When you check in to CrossFit North Mesquite for the check in challenge if you post your challenge WOD with your check in, it counts toward both challenges! You don't have to post your results if you don't want to, just post that you did the WOD and how awesome it was! :)
