There is no noon or 530pm class today! Instead, you can join up with the running crew at 530pm – or simply make the 430 or 630pm.

CROSSFIT ENDURANCE with Liz at 530pm: 6-12x200m, 90 sec rest in between

High Intensity Training and Diet, from a Navy Seal (and CrossFitter) on (a great blog run by Dr. Kurt Harris, M.D.)

Worried about lifting and lifting injuries?  Check out The New Rules of Strength Training by Bret Contreras. Make sure you read all the way to the end… it’s a parody but the good stuff is at the end. Conclusion: you’ve got a great place to train and vigilant coaches: be brave, be smart, and always listen to your body.

If you think lifting weights is dangerous, try being weak. Being weak is dangerous. - Bret Contreras
