Poison Cookies – Nestle Recalls Tollhouse Cookie Dough

Three months after scores of young women across the country began to fall ill with a particularly nasty strain of e-coli, Federal health officials manged to piece together the puzzle and discover that the root is Nestle’s refrigerated cookie dough products, eaten raw.
The contaminant casuing the problem is E. coli O157:H7. It causes abdominal cramping, vomiting and a diarrheal illness, often with bloody stools. Most healthy adults can recover completely within a week. Young children and the elderly are at highest risk for developing HUS, which can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.

It sure was a great day at C3-despite this unrelenting rain. Rich and Adam met for the first time and it was as classic a battle as I hoped. (Completely friendly of course-but it was soooo fun to watch and pandora played “Highway to Hell!”) Congrats to Rich for a 275lb power clean! Later on several new people learned the power clean for the first time and all did really well with it! Liz hit a big Pr with 95lbs! My shero, Ninja Jane did the 90 pull ups Rx’d!!! Look out because she is making a terrifyingly splendid comeback from the shin splints and I predict that she will run a 3 minute mile in the next couple of weeks! Ok, I guess we will all have reason to celebrate if she just plain old gets basic function back.

Wednesday (From the spelling guru who came up with Bologna and Colonel)


Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
Handstand push-ups 5 reps
Bench press 135 pounds, 10 reps
Push press 95 pounds, 15 reps
Dips 20 reps

As always scaling is expected and totally cool. If we need to elevated push ups will be a sub for the bench.

Some pertinent thoughts from the Dutch Man http://www.dutchlowy.com/blog/

The way i see it, in Crossfit, there are two kinds of weaknesses. You are either too weak or too “out of shape.” Or both.
How do you know which one you are? Think about Fran or Grace or anything else that is loaded. Do you finish the workout with the feeling that you could have gone faster if only the weight had been lighter, or do you feel like the weight was light, you just couldn’t breathe?
I’ll wait while you visualize yourself mid Fran.
Lets now take this knowledge and apply it to your training. This may be obvious to some of you but if the weight feels heavy we need to get stronger. Yes lift Heavy, in dedicated strength work and in conditioning. Overload yourself for a couple weeks and see what happens to that 95lbs. I bet it gets lighter.
If the weight is easy but you just can’t breathe lets attack your conditioning. Lets be aggressive about it. I would take the workouts that gas you quick and play with those movements. ex: Thrusters, burpees, clean and jerk etc.
Punish yourself with high intensity and see where your conditioning improves. Because you are strong you probably like lifting so i wouldn’t take that out but your focus should be on conditioning.
If you are weak in both. See both answers above and combine.

  1. Wow, this WOD rocked me. I was fairly disappointed with my performance this AM of app. 4 rounds (with some assistance on the HSPU — thanks for showing me how to use the manzere band contraption Mark). I looked up the comments from the Main Site and it seems that most people were hitting this thing around the 3-4 rounds mark with some studs getting up to 6 rounds.

    Just an FYI for everyone. See you guys this weekend!
