Happy birthday! Two birthdays! Two WOD’s! Today we celebrated Bridget and Annie’s birthdays and decided to go big or go home. Why not come in and crush two WOD’s in one day? Heck one should even be a benchmark since Annie shares the name with that WOD. Coupling them together made for a good opportunity to train your ability to come back after a very short recovery period to see how you handle upping the intensity and maintaining focus after you are thrashed from “Annie”. I also thought this was a good opportunity to get creative with the programming and account for the potentially large group that is typical on Monday’s. Hopefully the rolling waves were successful for everyone.
Here are two awesome highlight videos from the Northwest Regionals:
Challenge Alert! We will have a new “Out of the Box” Challenge to kick off starting on the 1st of June! If you want to do it it will require you to get a speed rope. NOT one from the gym though. We kinda need those. Hint: Think Double Unders…
A few other things in the works:
- May 30th we are going to teach a WOD in the park for lululemon athletica at Bellevue Square. Come and enjoy a nice outdoor WOD with Michelle, Moe and me on Sunday morning. Details coming.
- June 19th, Saturday is the Fall City Days Fun Run! There is a 10k, 5k, and kids 1k. Laura brought this race to our attention and a couple of you I know are planning to run it. If you are a “go” then go register.
- Late June we are planning a 1 year Anniversary Burp-B-Q at the box! Plan to come hit a WOD that morning, then go clean up and come back to celebrate with food, friends, fun and a Fish Tournament! Details coming. Start your Fish Game training on the rowers now. Winner will get a prize.
- We are planning to hold “Skills and Drills Days” starting in June on one Saturday each month for the summer. Rather than a normal Saturday class schedule, we will have a different focus on fundamental movements, lifts or skills. Then we will work drills that build on what you learn and wrap up with a WOD that ties it together. We hope to also have some other CF certified trainers participate if available.
