Roads and Stuff, good to go!

I drove around with Carrie this morning around the Lynnwood and Edmonds gyms, I’m happy to report, that it’s quite dry and wonderful out. See you at the gyms!

Rowing Postponed!

OK OK OK, it’s supposed to be snowy and like 13 degrees or something. I’m all for “being tough” and “embracing the suck” of doing things in the cold and all that, but there’s a point where it’s just nasty and not cool. Sub 35 is that point πŸ™‚

So ignore what you’ve signed up for on the board, this saturday is “normal” class time, and a good nasty triplet to smash away at.

Also guys, if the snow goes big time, and the roads are all jacked, PLEASE CHECK HERE FOR UPDATES!!

Happy New Year Squaddies!!

Hey guys πŸ™‚ Thanks for the week! I hope you enjoyed the break, I think we all need one, even you guys. Y’all train really hard all year, a rest week, in a chill week from work is a smart move.

Schedule! Monday is a half day! No early AM classes however: 11:00am is on, and then the PM classes, 4:15 and 5:15. See you then!

Otherwise, “normal” week πŸ™‚

Looking at the coming year: 298 training days this year! Up from 297 last year and 292 the year before that! That’s ample opportunity to smash workouts, and be your fittest self. EVENTS! I know you guys love events, I do too, even though I may grumble, they’re fun. Lots of holidays this year are mid-week so we’ll do lots of cool stuff. I’ve got tentatively on the schedule 18 events this year. From Murph, to Snowshoeing to a Helen Challenge, Juneteenth, an overnight camping trip, etc. Let’s do it!

First and most urgent! ROW 5K DAY!! We’ve been doing this the past few years, I love it. It’s really cold, it’s been clear, the view of the Olympics is awesome, and you get a wonderful 5,000m out of the way! Saturday the 13th, 8am, at that little park in Edmonds that has a cover in case it rains. No classes in the gym that day, just over there in heats every 1/2 hour until we’re done! On the bright side, we’ve got like 12 rowers in the mix now! So it’ll be awesome. Sign-ups will be in the gym, don’t add numbers, just fill in when you can make it πŸ™‚
