1 Mile Run
Jana, Lucy and Pat row, run and jump:
First off I want to point out that yesterday Tara got her first callous tear on her hand after completing 35 RX pull-ups during the WOD! Great accomplishment on the pull-ups and keep working towards ditching the band!
Keep the inputs on the schedule options coming! See yesterday’s post and please post to comments. We are gonna tally these and look at what to implement ASAP. Early consensus is to leave the 6am as is for now and add a 7:30am and 6pm class 1-2 times a week. The move to a 9am class will be for sure once our daughter starts school in a month.
Tomorrow’s “go time” is 10am. It will be a team WOD so prepare to pair up and get work done! After the WOD for those interested I will give some POSE running instruction, run some drills and then have you all practice.
The Inaugural CrossFit/USAW Open is this October 1st-3rd in Colorado Springs. This is the first competition event between CrossFit and USA Weightlifting and will feature a sanctioned weightlifting meet of 1RM Snatch, 1RM Clean and Jerk and a CF Triplet that is an AMRAP of squat cleans, pull-ups and double-unders. Competitors will be scored on total load (kg’s) plus reps in the triplet. Many CF’ers are signing up and a few of the top CF’ers from the Games are expected to compete.
SnoRidge will be represented very well by our very own Sean! I’ll be helping him train and accompanying him to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort to help cheer and watch him display awesomeness on a regular basis. Wish him luck and be sure to remind him to practice his jerks and snatches daily.
Ever done the benchmark WOD “Isabel”? 30 reps for time of power or full (squat) snatch. Most choose power. Load is 135 lbs. for men and 95 lbs. for women. How long would that take you? For most it’s easily a few minutes if not upwards of ten or more. How about 56 seconds?
