Running and CrossFit
Not everyone likes running — in fact some hate it. BUT running is part of many CrossFit WODs. In an attempt to help our members either love running more or make running suck less we will be adding some new skills and drills on the Pose Running technique. This is the technique that they teach at the CrossFit Endurance certifications and will make you a more efficient runner — whether you love it or hate it!
We will also be making some changes to our schedule for the summer. Starting TOMORROW night (6/23/15) we will be having ENDURANCE workouts every Tuesday/Thursday night from 6:30 – 8:00 rather than the Olympic Lifting hour. We have had a significant amount of interest in getting into the endurance side of CrossFit so we are going to give it a shot!
Your homework for tomorrow night is to bring the date/distance of an upcoming race that you would like to do. Doesn’t matter how long i t is – just find one that is about 3 months out – and we will put it on our goal board so that everyone can work as a team to reach our goals!
So the 6:30 PM schedule will now be:
Monday — Oly Lifting Hour
Tuesday — Endurance
Wednesday — Oly Lifting Hour
Thursday — Endurance
Friday — Oly Lifting Hour
July 3 WOD Times
Don’t forget to sign up for which time you want to work out on July 3! We want to make sure that we are meeting everyone’s needs.
Beyond the White Board
We have had many requests to get FireTower CrossFit signed up on Beyond the WhiteBoard! This is a great tool for tracking your workouts. To put it bluntly — we think it is more user friendly and useful than the BoxHQ for keeping track of WOD scores. We need you to still sign in at the IPad when you come to class but the WODs won’t be posted on there any longer — they will be on Beyond the Whit e Board. We love it and we think you will as well!
Go to Beyond the White Board and join up with FireTower CrossFit and you should be all dialed. If you have challenges or problems just let us know and we will get it figured out!
Jay and Juli Mattfeldt both received their Level 1 certifications just this week! So, if you see them make sure and give them a shout out!
