No Open Gym
We did a group bike ride from Grant Park to Long Beach yesterday, 67 miles, and we are still up here recovering from the day and after ride festivities. Therefore we have no one available to open the box today. However, this is a great opportunity to get out and do something really fun. I recommend going to the beach and prepping for our Swim WOD in 2 weeks. But that’s just me. Maybe a 67 mile bike ride? It’s gonna be hot, enjoy the dog days of summer.
The Paleo Challenge is in it’s final preparation. Many of you have taken the booklet we put together and I think it is in everyone’s, who is planning on accepting best interest, to consider starting now on easing into their paleo diet. You have 2 weeks to get your body acclimated to the changes. There is a $10 buy in with a male and female winner take all cash prize. We will be discussing more details of the scoring and plan throughout this week. There will be a weigh in with body fat measurements and “before” photos. Please don’t let this discourage you. This is private and discreet.
We have been told by Brittany she is bringing her friend Scott Rigsby to the box tomorrow morning for a WOD. Scott is the first double amputee to finish the Ironman. It is an honor to welcome Scott and his inspirational story so please consider joining us for the 6:30 class so sign up an due inspired. Here are some links about Scott. http://www.scottrigsby.com/ Also – this video is a must watch: https://vimeo.com/7431322 Here is an article from an interview he did with Again Faster: https://www.againfaster.com/blog/2012/05/12/pioneer-interview-scott-rigsby/.
