We will also be looking for a very large number of judges and volunteers. We will have more details on that later.

Competing is super fun and the event will is scheduled the weekend after the paleo challenge! That means you will be all ready to go….did that on purpose 😉 I think we had 40 athletes compete last year, let’s make it 100 this year!!

    I regret not watching this video before coming in tonight.
    My Throwdown weight remains: 135 lbs

    Tonight played out EXACTLY like our internal throw-down. I was able to clean 205# on my first attempt, missed the jerk, and then couldn’t hit the clean again. My PR remains at 195#. Can’t wait to re-test in 2 months.

    After a rough couple of WODs on Monday & Tuesday, I felt awesome today. Bested my prior C&J PR by 20lbs to get a new PR of 155lbs…and also my first true squat clean at the same time! A big thanks to Amy for some crucial technique pointers and to Sarah and Andrea for the positive feedback and encouragement!

    If you couldn’t make the Fran workout last night, when can you make it up?

    • Goose 09/05/2012 at 1:43 pm

      Hey Laura, Open Gym would be the best option 4pm on Monday or Thursday. If you can’t make it then you can come to one of our non prime time classes and complete the WOD. Preferably you would try to team up with someone so you can have an official score with a judge.

    Amy, quick question. When are the benchmark workouts going to be tested at the end of the paleo challenge? Just trying to figure out my marathon training accordingly.

      not sure the exact dates are set in stone but most likely the first week of November Meg.
