Happy Thursday everybody! By now most of you have probably already skipped to the bottom, read the WOD, then scrolled back up to the top to read my awesome post. Don't worry, if you haven't read the WOD yet I'll wait...
Are you done yet? Ok, good. Yup, we are hitting the road for a couple of minutes again today, who else is excited?! If you aren't excited, fret not, we are only going on a little 800m run for the WOD and thats it. No big deal. Today will be all about pushing yourself past your comfort zone. You all have been doing it all winter long and today is no exception. Running is just a different type of beast all together. Which reminds me, the other day I asked the question about what other types of seminars or clinics you guys would like to attend and an overwhelming majority of you said that you would like to do either Mobility or Running. Well guess what? We are gonna give you BOTH! Stay tuned for more details.
This Saturday CrossFit Transformation in Cicero, NY is hosting the Festivus Games once again. We have several of our athletes that are participating. Here is a list of all of our athletes that I know are gonna be there throwing down!
(there may be more people signed up, if I forgot anyone just leave a comment below!)
Lastly I want to leave you guys with the most recent Facebook status that CF Transformation posted regarding the event:
Attention all Athletes for the April 2015 Festivus Games,
We have mapped out below a tentative schedule for this coming Saturday. The competition at this time is completely capped at 135 athletes. While our gym is quite large, we also have 5 vendors for the day (Fork2Fit, Nurtishop Dewitt, Tango Charlie Apparel, Ab Freak Apparel, and Lululemon Syracuse show room), and hopefully many spectators. The entire back of CrossFit Transformation will be available to athletes only, however it is going to be a tight fit so if the weather is nice we encourage you to rest in between wods outdoors. Also as athletes you have full use of the Champions Fitness Locker room and Gym if you wish to warm up between wods over there. There will be a small warm up area in Transformation as well. Make sure to bring water and snacks for the day! We will do our best to stick to the timeline below, but please understand sometimes things go wrong. Looking forward to a great day on Saturday! Rest up and Get Ready to Wod!!!
