Training Layout Sept 19-25

The photo used in this weeks layout was from the Terry Fox Run. Nothing better then the next generation learning some core values to last them a lifetime. Saw many adults holding back tears during the Terry Fox video intro, as everyone’s been touched by cancer at some point in our lives. But those cloudy eyes sure light up watching these kids get pumped for the group warm up before the run. Nothing more rewarding than seeing young ones get pumped up about fitness!


For the week ahead….. as always, I am excited. But, what else is new? The one thing I am not excited about is….. I am still in need of some of you to either update your billing info in the gym, or at home when you log in to Zen Planner. It’s now the 18th, if you haven’t done it yet, please get on it! 


Ok, programming wise. I personally love Monday’s challenge. I would be lying if I said it would be my first choice of workouts. It’s certainly isn’t. But, I can’t remember when I did it last, and I can’t wait to see what happens Monday. More importantly, I can’t wait to see you hit it either! When it comes to the rest of the CrossFit week, every workout is quite different. Friday reminds me of an Open type WOD, but better because it doesn’t go on forever. Wednesday is a nice change of pace hitting a partnered WOD. And Saturday we bring out some toys that might have a hard time coming out again before next spring.


For endurance, now’s a good time to bring up our 3rd annual Half Marathon Row. Nothing in the week of training reflects preparing for it. But, if this is something you are interested in. (Yes, I’m serious, there are people interested in it.) Please start to let your coaches know. As there’ll be some homework you’ll want to do leading up to it. I’ve done it 2 years in a row, and have every intention of hitting it again! It’ll be on Thanksgiving Holiday Monday, where the gym will be closed except for the row. Monday October 10th. 


Enjoy the week!
