Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend! I want to take a moment and say how proud I am of all of you for working so hard during the CrossFit Open! You guys really pushed yourselves and I hope it left you wanting to prepare for next year! Its always awesome to see how your rank gets better and better each year! My first Open I was ranked in the 100,000 people who signed up that year! Each year I kept getting better and now I'll probably sit in the top 40,000 after 18.5 kicks my butt tomorrow. I am not games athlete material by any means and its not a goal for me. My main goal has always been to coach all of you and see all the awesome things you can do and know what you can potentially do by working hard every week!!
We are coming to the end of the school year, the weather is getting warmer, and time may be getting away from you to make it to the gym! We know you have other obligations in your busy lives. Just be sure to take some time to work on yourself and your personal goals! It can absolutely become so easy to say, 'hmmmm, I should take care of these other tasks first.... But now I'm tired and don't want to go to the 5:30 or 6:30 class. I'll just try for tomorrow." But then other tasks pile up the next day! Come treat yourself to a great stress relieving workout, THEN go get your things done! You will feel 10 times better knowing you got a good sweat session in. IT'S SCIENCE!!! I know this isn't the same scenario for all of you! All I am trying to say is, make time for you! : )
Now Some News!
1. Baseball Game March 30th @7:35! If you have not seen the Facebook post. A group is going and is waiting to see how the weather is going to turn out! If its nice weather, grab a ticket and join the fun!
2. Next Nutrition Challenge! This one will be a 2 1/2 week PALEO CHALLENGE. short enough that its doable and long enough to start feeling the benefits after you experience these dreaded withdrawal symptoms that I have been going through as I have been giving it a go. It will be after spring break. I will announce a date next week sometime.
3. Loganville Lockdown! CrossFit Competition in Loganville April 21. We already have a few teams signed up. The early bird may be over with, but its a great way to take your fitness to the next level! Scared and think its not for you?!?! HOGWASH!! You are all awesome and take a beating with Anthony's programming daily! Practice the workouts before you say it's not for you! Check them out https://facebook.com/loganvillelockdown/?hc_location=group Still don't want to do it?? Come out and support your athletes! its always fun to have a cheering crowd behind you and pushing you to finish strong! I went to one alone.... it wasn't very fun not having someone there during the first events! I wanted to quit until my brother, Ramon, showed up and told me I might as well finish if I signed up! Haha. So by golly, I finished the damn thing and felt good for completing the whole thing.
Thats all for now! I have something coming out about pacing and breathing this week! Keep an eye out for that!
If you have any questions, just let me know!
