Remember, manage your rest time...intensity and good form are the keys to getting better and getting more fit.
I am going to start putting sections of articles in here from the CrossFit journal so that we can all better understand the sport of CrossFit in short absorbable sections....Enjoy...

The CrossFit prescription is “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional
movement.” Functional movements are universal motor recruitment
patterns; they are performed in a wave of contraction from core to extremity;
and they are compound movements—i.e., they are multi-joint. They are
natural, effective, and efficient locomotors of body and external objects. But
no aspect of functional movements is more important than their capacity
to move large loads over long distances, and to do so quickly. Collectively,
these three attributes (load, distance, and speed) uniquely qualify functional
movements for the production of high power. Intensity is defined exactly as
power, and intensity is the independent variable most commonly associated
with maximizing favorable adaptation to exercise. Recognizing that the
breadth and depth of a program’s stimulus will determine the breadth
and depth of the adaptation it elicits, our prescription of functionality and
intensity is constantly varied. We believe that preparation for random
physical challenges—i.e., unknown and unknowable events—is at odds with
fixed, predictable, and routine regimens.
