We are trying to find a bit of normalcy here in Sac. This was not helped by the sight that greeted Donna in the bathroom this morning. A half naked kiwi, shaving his own head. Darren from CFNZ decided his hair needed a touch up before heading out to meet some CrossFit royalty.
I dropped off James and Darren in town this morning so they could hook up with Jobst, who we met in Santa Cruz, to head to Chico, the home of CrossFit NorCal and Robb Wolf the CrossFit nutrition guru.

Then we headed to our second home at CrossFit East Sac for today's workout:

Thruster 3-3-3-3-3
Matt: 175#

Donna: 98#

Thanks to Justin for some great coaching. It is always good to have someone who will push you that little bit further.

3 Rounds For Time:
10 Knees To Elbows
20 Burpees
30 Double Unders
Donna did this as Rx in 17:11 even managing 10 double unders in a row, a new PR.

I struggled through the double unders cutting them down to 10 per round, but they are getting there. I even got 3 in a row at one stage. My time 10:54.

Then it was time to try to get Donna's licence to practice massage in California sorted. One trip to city hall down, one more to follow, along with a trip to the Police station for her to be fingerprinted. I think it will much easier when we get to NZ. That said she should be up and running at CFES by Friday at the latest.

for the record, I wasn't sure what was going on, so I just stuck the camera through the door.

Normalcy? Normal, Donna, is when you can shave your head without someone taking a picture of you looking weird..... :)

Glad I did that though - 50 freakin degrees in Chico
