The First Week of the Open!

Here we go guys πŸ™‚ There’s gonna be a pattern to the weekly fitness foray for the next three weeks. So be it πŸ™‚ On the bright side, I think it’ll make this period the most useful it can be, and allow for lots of PR’s along with the definite ability to SMASH Friday’s session. Your job is to do like you always do and be good CrossFitters, and get your sleep, eat your protein, drink your water (with electrolytes), and watch whatever movies make you fired up for life and ready to crush.

Remember: big workout Friday night at Lynnwood (no Edmonds classes), everyone will be there, running heats until we’ve all finished the thing. Details put out each week Thursday night because that’s when we find out about the workout πŸ™‚



Tuesday: Clean Max 2

Wednesday: Max Rounds in 20 Minutes of: 24 Box Jump Overs 24/20, 12 Hang Clean and Push Jerk 115/75, 400m Run

Thursday: Gymnastics

Friday: 24.1 wooo!

Saturday: TBD

One more seven day interval, until the last one of February, the second month.

Presidents Day is not a thing πŸ™‚ Regular schedule Monday, or MON-YAY!!!

The Open starts next week! We’re running the workout on Friday the 1st of March. Remember: the PM class is Friday night at Lynnwood it’s gonna be huge, with heats going off until we’re all done with it. Which also means that there’s NO PM CLASSES FRIDAY MARCH 1st. We’ll be judging each other (as if we don’t already) and being loud and awesome. Depending on the the workouts’ length it’ll take longer, hopefully it’s short and sweet. Remember: we don’t know the workout until Thursday night at like 5 or 6pm! So there’s really no way to plan better than what we’re doing as is. Watch games.crossfit.com for details, and plan for regular AM classes Friday, but fun times in the PM at Lynnwood if you can make it.

5k Rowing! There’s three slots, 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00. Be early to warm-up a bit, wear warm clothes, and be ready to smash it! Address up in the gym. Sunset school Park I think it’s called. Thanks Synnove!

Snowshoeing Info:

Not that serious πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry guys, I got late added to a Level 2 course in Baltimore this coming weekend. I’ve scheduled time off for Feb 23-25 so we can have some events! So THAT IS THE WEEKEND. Apparently that works out well with super bowl and stuff. Taylor will be so happy. OMG! If they lose, she’ll be able to write a song about it! HA πŸ™‚ That would be amazing.

5k Row, Saturday Feb 24th, Snowshoeing Sunday Feb 25th.

The Open: It’s coming! Fridays are the day when we’ll do the workout. It’s a few weeks out still.

February 11th! Showshoeing! I’m not sure where we’re headed, but it’ll be snowy, close and not an impassibly steep nasty mess. It’ll be gorgeous, bright, and snowy πŸ™‚ Bring what you need, for yourself. The gym isn’t providing anything but an opportunity to have a good time with your crew.

The CrossFit Open:

Feb 29th – March 18th. 3 Weeks!

What that means for us: Friday night we smash πŸ™‚ March 1st, 8th and 15th! Thursday is the Gymnastics Days, be excited for those, and beyond the heavy standardization of those workouts, we’ll be doing what we always do: take great care of you all so that we get fitter and have fun doing it!
