Thanksgiving Week!!

I know this is late guys, but you knew the drill already, because you’re aces!

Cornucopia (read below) is happening Thursday Morning! 8:00am, and 9:15am! You know the score, if you’re not early to the 8:00am class, we’re going to run into problems, so be early, you know I’ll be early! Like 15 minutes is all you need to get prepped and grouped up and sorted out. I’ll have a killer plan on the white board, and it’ll be good to go.

Remember we’re closed the rest of the week, Fri/Sat/Sun after this massive workout. It typically produced MARKED soreness, so enjoy that, and know that the food you’re eating will go the right places 🙂

Hey guys, I’m gone, so be good kids in class OK!!!

As per usual though, I leave, and there’s a huge windstorm and people are out of power and stuff! Sheeeesh 🙂

Roatan is really nice, very hot, very humid. We got to meet some of the local people for whom we’ve built homes from before, they’re very hospitable and shy, and truly live in squalor. It’s pretty wild what home is like here. One of the children with us who’s from Seattle, said with a drawn face after about 15 minutes checking out this families home (that’s quite nice by local standards, because it’s been built through the dwellingsnow network) “they live here all the time?” Thinking to himself how that seemed impossible to him. Amazing.

The Workouts:

Monday: Military Press for Max 3 – then- Annie For time: 50-40-30-20-10 Double unders, sit-ups

Tuesday: 4 Rounds for Time of: 12 Thrusters 95/65, 8 Power Snatches 95/65, 6 Burpees Over Bar

Hahaha 🙂 Another killer week, and a CrossFit Story!

The story is at the bottom. The Dan in reference is one of the coaches from www.turnitloosecrossfit.com, not Mr. Harkins, sadly. That would be a whole different story…

Thursday: 3 Rounds for Time: 400m Run, 21 Burpees, Row 500m

Friday: Power Clean Max 3

Saturday: 3:00 Double Unders switch when you miss, Med Ball Buddy Run 400m, 50 Partner Wall Ball Shots 20-10’/14-9′, 50 Alternating Kipping Pull-ups, 50 Partner Wall Ball Shots 20-10’/14-9′, Med Ball Buddy Run 400m, 3:00 Double Unders switch when you miss. For Time/reps/happiness.

Here’s how this thing should go:

3,2,1…GO. I start doing Dubs, I get 18 and miss, then Dan starts going, he gets 14 misses (we’re on 32 reps) right away I start again, I get 9, Dan starts immediately, he gets 26, and so on until 3:00 elapses and we’ve accumulated 189 Double Unders (or whatever). Then we grab our ball and run out of the gym, I pass him the ball, he catches it and passes it back to me ASAP, we run the 400m passing like this until we’re back at the gym. We saunter to the wall with our ball, and I do a shot, with a trajectory that gets the ball to Dan, who’s right beside me, he catches it, does another shot getting it the me (that’s our second shot of 50) eventually with my misses, our breaks, and terse words we finish the 50, then we proceed to our pull-up bar, Dan climbs the box to get the bar, and I gingerly jump to control. I hit a pull-up (Dan is hanging) then once I’m at the bottom, Dan hits a pull-up then hangs, then I hit a pull-up (we’re at three reps now). This begins to destroy our grips and eventually we complete 50 reps. Amidst an immodest degree is shit talking we make our way through 50 more dastardly wall ball shots, angrily toss the ball back and forth to each other as we gallop a second 400m run, then back to the gym to complete our doubles, all the while secretly wishing the other gets whipped badly when they miss. And then upon completion we reach Nirvana and find that our differences were only temporal and that we couldn’t be prouder of each other, and are friends for life, bonded through misery.

It’s almost Halloween!

Don’t worry, we’ll not be dressing up in the gym. I’ve tried that a few times, and it always seems to be ill received. I’m also not the best in costume for whatever reason, I try, but I don’t think I can pull off the things I try. I mean, even Hagrid (God rest his soul) I couldn’t pull-off! Sheeeesh!

For your advanced planning, we’re gonna shut down the PM classes on the 31st, and then also the early AM Classes on the 1st, no 5,6,7am. That’s always a night where we’re up too late, and have to plan and fritter around, so why not make it easy on everyone? I mean who puts this thing on a Monday?
