In accordance with CrossFit’s ideology to keep things constantly varied and to play new sports, we’ll be we’ll be taking a couple field trip WODs in the upcoming months. One of them will be a Strongman WOD at CrossFit Inland Valley (details to follow).
Another one will be right here in our backyard. At the request of many Intrepids, we’ll be participating in the annual Manhattan Beach 10K on Saturday, October 1st. The course will take you through the wood chip trail, up Rosecrans, and finishing up the race down the strand along the beach. Click here to register for the event or you can go in person to the Village Runner in MB starting September. The Champagnes’ have graciously invited us to rendezvous at their place which is a short walk to the start point, so bring your Intrepid tanks/tees and come on out and represent. The gym will be closed during our field trip so plan accordingly.
On a side note, a few of us (spurred on by a couple of honeymoons, a fall of the wagon, and a desire for better performance) have decided to participate in an impromptu Whole 30 Challenge. As an incentive each participate selected a penalty should they fail to complete the 30 days of paleo eating (I allowed AJ to select Sean and my penalties, see below).
The penalty will be either a monetary amount donated to the charity of the other participants’ choosing and/or a WOD penalty. In all honesty, penalties are not necessary for participation. Everyone who chooses to participate is an adult fully capable of making the right choices to fuel his/her body. Success depends on proper planning, attention to detail (read labels, ask questions in restaurants), and proper planning (I said it twice for a reason). However, some people have requested some further incentive to stay on the wagon and we obliged.
We use the whiteboard as a means of accountability of our performance in our WODs, so in accordance with that I wanted to post the participants’ names and penalties. Hopefully you onlookers will find it in your hearts to encourage (not sabotage or make side bets…ahem Brianna) us through the next 30 days.
