Midsummers Day Dreams

Yay Summer 馃檪 Loving the heat? I sure am! Heads up: Sunday the 28th we’re doing the 10k Row at CC’s wonderful pool/backyard paradise! I know that everyone is going to vie for the earliest heats, but remember that it’s a pool party, with Lunch/BBQ, it’s supposed to be hot so you get in the pool, and if you go when it’s the hottest you “totally” have a reason why your time was so slow. Hahahah 馃檪

Heats will be posted in the gym. Please sign up for what’s available, DO NOT ADD extra spots. I know how many rowers we have and how many we’re bringing and how many spots CC’s yard has room for 馃檪 This is reflected in the availability listed on the whiteboard. Grazie.

Something like 11:30, 12:30, 1:30 will be the spots.

Wilcox Park Post

Hey guys! Today is the 4th, be stoked 馃檪

Wilcox Park is on 196th after Big Lots and before Wendy’s, it’s got all the flags out front. We’ll most likely be post up in the back of the park (north side) which is away from the flags and the main entrance. You can get there by turning onto 52nd Ave and finding the parking lot. Easy.

High Noon is tee time! There will most likely be some staggering at the start (and the finish!) to make sure that everyone has a spot to come back to for the reps.

I missposted earlier this week.


For Time:
6k Run
60 Burpee Pull-ups
Wear a weight vest

Scaling: run less, walk less, and then we’ll have jumping pull-up options as well. With any luck I’ll be able to figure out a handwashing station for when we’re done spending so much time on the grass. WOOOO.

Bruh it IS the 4th of July!

Yoooo. This is going to be so much fun 馃檪 Remember, treason against England is what we’re celebrating! Hahah

Schedule: Thursday High Noon, Workout, then BBQ. The Gym will closed otherwise Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, just like for Thanksgiving. Please check out the board at the gym and see what you can bring to the party. The gym will be bringing burgers, grill, La Croix and a cooler with Ice. And the Rogue Rig…

I’m really stoked for this. We’ve never been able to do this before, but I’ve been accumulating (as I am prone to do) rig pieces over the last few years and I’ve bought base plates from Rogue just for this purpose. We have a portable giant rig! This will be it’s maiden voyage! We set it up on Sunday to test it and it’s rad. You guys are totally in for a treat!

I’d love to get a head count for the workout if possible. The way it’ll work is people will trot off (run/walk) on their run (10k or less distance) and then come back and complete 60 (or less) burpee pull-ups. Tom and I will be setting up the rig starting about 10:30am so that you guys will have a secure place to do the burpee pull-ups it’ll have space for about 12 people to crush at a time, we’ll be able to fit a few extras on the ends I think. But within reason if we have some waves at the start things will work out pretty well. Pardon the pun 馃檪

Location: Wilcox Park (the Flag Park on 196th). The back of the park might have better for shade, but also set-up ease and workout flow. But we might end up bringing to the front. Typically we don’t use the park on such huge holidays, so I’m a little leery of setting up front and center (liability of kids/other people and pull-up bars and all that), but we’ll see.

It’s supposed to be sunny and in the 70’s Thursday, which is awesome! Hopefully the forecast stays that way and all will be well!

Super stoked, can’t wait.


Monday: Power Snatch Max 2

Tuesday: “Hildy” For Time: 100 calorie Row 路 75 Thrusters (45/35 lb) 路 50 Pull-Ups 路 75 Wall Ball Shots (20/14 lb) 路 100 calorie Row 路 With a weight vest (20/14 lb)

Juneteenth Week!

Hey guys! Gym’s gonna be closed closed on Wednesday. We’ll do our tribute workout on Thursday (369th Hellfighters WOD) and then celebrate the beginning of summer on Friday with the SWOLESTICE!! HAhahah 馃檪

I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day (at least minorly comparable to Mother’s Day) and that if your Dad is gone now you don’t miss him too badly.

Heads up about the 4th of July: We’re gonna do a WOD + BBQ like we did for Murph, and the close the rest of the week like we do for Thanksgiving. I hope you can get out with your families and go somewhere fun, take a long weekend and enjoy it. School’s out, you’ve got the PTO, so dust off that bike, or paddle board, or pop-up camper and hit the nature! If that’s not your style, go book a room at Tulalip and smash the slot machines until the cows come home.

Lastly! I forget to bring this up all the time: if you want to pay for CrossFit with your HSA/FSA account instead of your income that’s already been taxed, only to pay more sales tax, so that I can pay B&O tax on your now thrice taxed dollar, check out TrueMed. I’ve got flyers on the front desk at Lynnwood, and I can send you the link in a minute. The gym doesn’t get a kick back or anything, it’s just a way to save you guys some money, stick it to the man, and make becoming and being fit a little bit easier.
