Friday May 2, 2014

Love this pic of Ben...     It was actually taken by Richard, one of our RPM crew members.  Richard is a photographer on the side of his RPM gig, and he's generously agreed be our photograoher at the party on Saturday.  Thanks Richard!!!




**Announcements, etc...** 

  • Paleo Challenge Finals:  Post you FINAL totals today, subtracting a point for each second you dropped on your run and 3 points for each rep you added on your pullups.  I'll announce a winner on Monday.  
  • PRE-PARTY AT CADENCE!!!  We're going to get things started on Saturday with a pre-party at Cadence starting at around 530pm!  And since the Lodge won't let us bring the taco truck in for the evening (rude I know... I'm pretty sure the taco guys should be honorary Cadence members by now), I thought we'd just have them set up at Cadence for the pre-party.  So no need to make dinner plans, just stop by Cadence before the event and you'll be taken care of! 
  • Aaaaaaaaand another thing... If you're having trouble remembering to go online for your tickets, we now have a sign-up sheet at the desk at the gym so you can just sign that when you come in this week.  Or, you can click on this link >>> Get your tickets :)
  • PARTNER WORKOUT TOMORROW!!! And I will program so that you can bring a friend who's never done CrossFit before if you like, although they should have an intermediate general fitness base at least.

Ended up with ~20 points for the paleo challenge. Never had a chance to do the tester WODs but I do feel pretty great! Going to try and keep it up as best as I can.

Look forward to seeing all of you at the party tomorrow night! And in case you're curious, most of our appetizers are gluten free :)

Big block #1- 6:55
Big block #2- 6:23

Pull-ups- increased by zero. Probably because I was feeling sick from the run (4 total).
