Hail to the Chief:
Quote of the Day:
Nadia being told by Moe to finish her warm-up exercises and grab a bar to review the Clean (warm-up included “Cuddle with a Friend” on the whiteboard from Rona):
“So you’re telling me we aren’t going to cuddle?”
The Chief is deceiving. This one is truly a WOD that you read and think “cakewalk”. It makes you overconfident. The reps are small in number and the movements seem easy. The heavy clean is really the only challenge but it’s just three reps. “I can get a bunch of rounds” you tell yourself. Then the clock starts and you hit that first rest slightly gassed. The rest minute gives you just enough time to explode into the first round of the next cycle sprinting fast to pile up the rounds. By the third cycle it’s a whole new ballgame. The fourth and fifth round are “hang on for dear life”. The rest is what makes this so tough. Any WOD that has a built in rest is typically evil as it means you push like a sprint and reach system overload quickly (like “Fight Gone Bad” or “Barbara”).
6am Tuesday class cancelled tomorrow due to the weather madness. All other class times are on and snowball fights are optional.
We have a few so far who want to volunteer for Sectionals (Laura, Lena, and Amanda S.). Please post a comment or let us know if you are interested as we are just making a preliminary list.
