About two months ago, CrossFit 603 got really into jumping on stuff. Or over stuff, or across stuff... jumping, in general. Dallas set his sights on San Francisco CrossFit's Koffin, and I set my sights on, well, anything over 24", because that was as high as I've ever tried to jump. (I'm not a good jumper. No, I'm a TERRIBLE jumper. It's an evil, evil Goat.) So we've been practicing, hitting 60.5" box jumps (Dallas) and 34" car jumps (me - see blog header).
Fast forward to last week, as Dallas managed to jump his way across two states on our Affiliate Tramp through Oregon and California. We enlisted the help of Lu Crenshaw, owner of CrossFit Allegiance and our shared CrossFit Crush. Seriously - Lu can out-up me by 10"... and she's only 5' 3" tall. So she was all too happy to jump around with us for a couple of hours on a Sunday morning.
Everyone loves a good montage, right? Here are some successful (and not so successful) jumps shot during our morning of fun at XFA. Also, in case you were wondering, tires are not soft, people - as you may be able to tell by the look on my face after some of those fails. Hey, we should all be working our Goats, right? (Even if our Goats make us look awkward and uncoordinated in front of hundreds of blog readers. At least my socks are cute.)
Stay tuned later in the week for the "Big Ups - Five Oh Edition"... and the final results of Dallas v. The Koffin.
