Thanks to everyone who came out and helped make Labor Day extra special at the Cove. It’s always an honor to hold a Hero WOD at the box, but to have around 50 athletes come and give it their all was nothing short of impressive. There were so many great highlights… from Cara H. running her first mile EVER to William Stewart shaving 10 minutes off his time AND adding 20lbs to the barbell. We also had several men from the 6-Week Challenge join us and they CRUSHED it. Most of them couldn’t imagine doing 42 heavy clean and jerks four weeks ago but now they are doing that AND running two and half miles sandwiching it all. Great things happen when we support each other in our goals.
And it was great to have so many new faces there this year. We’ve been so lucky to have such amazing people join our community and there’s nothing better than seeing everyone sweat it out together and hang around to socialize and suffer through the aftermath together.
We are back at it tomorrow working on our Snatch during the strength portion as we start winding down our cycle. Keep focusing on the right form and we promise the weight will come!
This Friday marks the last week of dedicated 6-Week Challenge classes for the guys. After that they will have a week of regular classes to round out their program. Friday also marks the last day of their 30 Day Paleo Challenge! We thought it would be great if we could pair up a male “Cove veteran” with one of the new guys for the partner WOD at 6:30pm. This way when they hit classes the following week, they will have some familiar faces to connect with. Afterwards, we’ll have some food and drink and hang for a post-WOD party. Women are MORE than welcome to take the 6:30 class as usual, but we are actively seeking 14 Cove members (men) to volunteer to partner up with one of the Challenge guys. Let us know if you can make it!
