Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Have you ever been told you think too much? Stop. When learning a new movement or trying a workout for the first time, a lot of us will over analyze the HOW and for get about the WHAT. Sometimes it is okay to just grip it and rip it. See what your body can do. Put yourself in a new headspace. Try to push the limits of your capability.
Then there are some moments when strategy comes into play. This week is a good example of both. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday we want you to grip it and rip it. Do big sets, go unbroken, run fast, etc...
Thursday is a strategy day. We want you to try and strategize a PR. What numbers do you need to hit each round to PR? Where can you pick up reps. What is the minimum number of reps per station you need to get? We want to compare your score to what you did in Fundamentals.
All hail Megatron!

Marine Corp 10K in DC - deadline this week
Transportation decisions will be made at the end of this week based on the number of people going. So far we have about 15. If you are thinking about going please contact Jen by Wednesday.
Every year, Mark Hummeldorf ran this race in Washington DC to honor his fallen brothers. This October 28th, we'll run to honor him. Then give him a high five in Arlington. It sells out quickly.
Registration is open. Mass transportation may be possible once we have numbers on people going.
