SPECIAL FRIDAY WORKOUT IN REMEMBRANCE OF 9/11 Today is the day we remember the heroic sacrifice of those involved in the attacks on our nation, September 11, 2001. This workout is our gesture in which we remember and honor those who have died on this day and in our service to others. We will never forget. With a partner complete the following (partition as desired; idea is to keep on moving through this together; one person working at a time) 2001m Run- (Complete as 10X200m Runs; although its a bit under this is representing around 2001 meters based on the loop distance; complete as a relay using each other as recovery; when it is your turn go hard!; 5 sets each) 9 rounds of the following: 11 Toes to Bar 11 Push Press (95/65lbs) 11 Box Jumps (choose height) 2001m Row Post time to comments.
Tackling Grace today/Benchmark today and soo far…..a couple words from Brandon Petelin below! “PRs galore….Despite all the races/competitions so far this year (and more to come in September), I feel stronger than ever, as I hit a 4th PR in 2.5 weeks today. This time I cut my Grace time (30 clean & jerks FT) by almost 33% from when I did it last October. Even though that attempt was right after #G2G, it’s still unbelievable to me that my time could drop that much. Thanks for the great programming, which meshed well with my own endurance training, this summer Danielle and Craig!” #crossfitendurance #crossfitbalancethomascircle #balance life Results are earned…not given and it is showing across the board for those who are consistent in their training! Keep it up!
SEE BELOW FOR MOTIVATION IN ATTACKING TOMORROW’S WORKOUT: “He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.” -Doc Johnson “Two personal best’s in the last two workouts was a great reminder of one of my big motivators–doing what you think impossible. Pushing yourself beyond your limits, whether in the gym or life, is essential for growing, maturing, and building a better you. Turn off everything in your head that says, “you can’t,” and turn on the beast, at least once. Fully embrace that sense of complete focus and indomitable will. And, with time, there’s nothing you can’t do.” -Ben Freeman (pictured above)
Just seeing what the interest would be ever for the following class times: 9:15am -or- 4pm As the classes grow, I am just seeing what demand for other class times would be or if anyone had flexibility in their schedules or interest. Just a reminder we have the CrossFit Endurance classes every Monday (6:30pm at Cardoza) and Thursday (6:30pm at Georgetown). Happy Monday!
