Coach's thoughts on today:
First: Sorry for no clever meme today, Wodify is being dumb. Now, for more pressing issues. I liked last weeks throwback to "old school" CrossFit methodology, where instead of filling each hour to the gills we had a little bit more time for each athlete to get some attention from their coach to refine movements and really learn some of the elements at a slower pace. Expect to see more of that (I admit I sometimes forget the learning curve for people isn't the same as mine).  So for today, let's really make sure we are refining our front squat, and learning some mobilizations to improve the rack position. The metcon is pretty brutal, but not complex so there shouldn't be too much need for instruction just work hard till you time out.
