Warrior Dash next weekend!!!! I know everyone going is excited. We will meet at the box that morning and caravan down. Some people have offered to car pool for the ones coming back that day. Some are camping and coming back Sunday if that sounds good to you.

I have a list going up at the box for shirts. If you want to make sure you get a shirt make sure you get on that list. Some have asked can we get CrossFit Texarkana on the front and the 10 skills on the back, kind of something from both shirts on one. That is possible if enough want to do that. I need sign ups to make it happen. Be sure you get on the list!

I am tossing around the idea of doing a class around lunch time. Somewhere between 11 and 12 or doing an “open gym” during lunch. Something like 11:30-1:30. I need input. Every class we have started thus far has turned out successful and I’m sure this one would be no exception, but I would like to know that we could start with about 6 people. Let me know!

10 Min warm up and mobility

then

Press Strength

then

Death by Cleans

With a continuous running clock perform 1 lift at the first minute, 2 lifts at the second minute, 3 lifts at the third minute and so on until you can’t complete the mandatory number of lifts that correlate with that minute. We will use 40% of you deadlift max for your load.

I posted the upcoming days and times for CrossFit Kids at our box last night. I will get the site updated also. Spread the word. Working with a kid before they become deconditioned will change their life drastically, I’ve witnessed the results.

    I really enjoyed this one (probably because I haven’t been all week)!  I did 14 rounds (that is 105 lifts)!  That sounds like alot of rounds but I didn’t have the load of the elite athletes!

    Mylene, please post your recipe from today!

  • MollyC

    Yes please post that amazingly awesome recipe!!

  • Mylene

    Date Bars
    1 cup cut dates
    1 cup cut almonds or whatever nuts u want
    1 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup coconut oil
    1 cup cocunut flour sifted

    Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Preheat oven at 350. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
    I use stoneware when I bake so you might have to cut cooking time if you use a metal pan.

    I will make another batch this time adding more dried fruit and different nuts. Will bring some to the box if it taste good to me.

    9 rounds + 9 reps w/ 115 lbs…1 lousy rep from 10 rounds!>-P It was as Rx though & I felt like I had good form so I’m really not complaining…speaking of form I’m gonna do Fran “Jackie style” tomorrow (45 lbs on thrusters)…good form is so much more important to me than a heavy Rx weight…looking forward to it!!!
