Benchmark: “Badger”

Petra – #TBT

Endurance class will meet at Moakley Track tonight at 6pm. See you there!

Superhero 5K
Calling all Endurance Class participants! The 8-week program is almost over, so it’s time to start planning for our 5K test (and hopefully PR!). The Southie crew will be participating in the Superhero 5K on Sunday, October 26 in Cambridge, MA. This will be an excellent test of your endurance training on a great course. You could even dress up as a superhero if you wanted! Even if you haven’t been training with the Endurance classes, we hope you can step outside of your comfort zone and join the Southie crew for this race. It will be a good time!

    29:58 Rx. That was brutal. Finally getting the hip contact down on the cleans though.

    31:58 Rx. First WOD where I got my butterfly pull-ups going. Had to break them up, though, a lot. Excited about them and looking to build off of today. Good vibes in the 5:30 class this morning!

    WOD: 31:29 65#/25 reps

    This got ugly real fast. Ripped palm. Tight hip flexors. Basically just cranky pants and no heart to squeak out rx – even for what sounds like a measly 5 more reps at this point. Good thing the sun is coming back out tomorrow!!!!

    For those (and those not) doing the Paleo Challenge. I made these TACOS and they were delicious and simple

    Badger – 30:30 Rx. Great to have some more of the Taj crew join in this morning. Hopefully they make it more permanent.
