1. Saturday 9/29- CFE HOA Training Clinic #3 8AM-9AM at CFS-west. Check the blog Friday for the WOD.
Thank you to all of you who came out for our first CFE Training Clinic last Sat. We had a great turnout and despite the rain we accomplished a lot. We genuinely hope you learned a thing or two about improving your running form and understand a bit more about Crossfit Endurance. In the next five weeks we will continue to focus on running form and repeat many of the drills you were taught last weekend. We will also be focusing our training on team work and general endurance through a Crossfit WOD. Below you will find the WOD for clinic #2 this Saturday 9/22 from 8AM-9AM. A scaled version of the WOD will be available Sat morning and as usual scaling is encouraged to maintain proper form and intensity. The WOD will be performed in teams of 2-4, so come with a buddy or be ready to make a buddy! If you missed last weekend and still want in on some of the endurance action we would love to have you. Please come a few min early to pay up and register!

“Endurance Total Week”!
Its time again to put the training to the test. We have reached the end of another training cycle and we will start another next week but just as we always do, we will run the “Endurance Total” this week. On Mon/Tues we will test our 200, 400, 800 and 1-mile times (see below) and Thursday we will run a 5k for time. All efforts will be “time trial” efforts or ALL OUT efforts. This is a great opportunity for those who have been training with us to test where you are at and an opportunity for those who have been wanting to try CFE to come out to see where your running times are at. As you complete the WOD’s this week either with a class or on your own please update the PR board, the board is full so if you don’t come and defend your spot on the board you may lose it! Compare times to 7/2/12. Next week we will begin a new training cycle.
