On behalf of all of your CFE coaches…
Coach EK sends her love…and recommends this AWESOME article to make all your CFE Christmas dreams come true!!! Having trouble with hip pain, IT bands, or shin splints?? Your biomechanics are likely to blame. This article reiterates the importance of staying off the heels, and serves as a great reminder of why Pose running is so instrumental in your staying injury-free!

A few words about Wodify…
Wodify is a great way to monitor your individual progress throughout the programming cycles, to keep track of benchmarks and PRs, and to motivate each other! That being said…PLEASE be mindful of how you post your scores in Wodify. For example…if you did the workout EXACTLY as written, mark “Rx”. If you scaled all or any of the distances, did not complete all intervals, or failed to hold any designated interval range–you cannot claim “Rx”. Scaling our WODs, as with any CrossFit WOD, is certainly acceptable (and encouraged in situations where the athlete is unable to maintain the intensity intended for the workout, or if said distances or interval structures put an athlete at risk for injury given their current skill level, or at the discretion of the athlete or their coaches). We are SO fortunate to have this system! Let’s be accountable to ourselves and one another–to reap the full benefit of its function!
