Announcements: Make sure to have your food Journals in by tonight!!! either email them to me or leave them in the office. My team will begin to evaluate them in depth. (My team is really just me, I’m not fooling anyone)
Short and sweet today (Due to lack of sleep….yes minus me three points on our CFR Paleo Challenge). I want to talk about this Saturday’s event. We have 6 people representing our gym competing in the legendary competitor event. We will be representing in all divisions. First here is a break down of the event and the workouts:
Time: The website is extremely vague on the exact start time. I am telling our competitors to meet around 6:15am on saturday to make it in time for check ins. Most of the events will begin somewhere around 9 o’clock.
Getting there: We are trying to get a big group to support our athletes and kill whoever else wants to throwdown. With that being said, lets try to get a carpool/caravan to leave from the gym so we can all roll in there as a group.
Others: We are working on getting to easy ups and coolers so we can have a “home base.” If you like new gear and shit (Josie) bring some extra cash because there will be vendors there.
Now lets look at the workouts:
Each division will be doing the same workouts, only weights and a few different movements for the advanced will be different.

1000m row for time
The rower will be set to count down from 1000m. Athlete may not grab handle until start command is given. Row until the meters hit zero. Stay in the rower until the judge collects your score.
Going to watch other people that you know compete is extremely fun. Being a crossfitter yourself, you know exactly how the athletes are feeling because you can put yourself in their position. Who knows, maybe by going to this event you will get that fire inside to sign up for the next event!!
