16.1 completed!

Category : Weekly Blog

Congratulations everyone!  You have completed the first Open WOD for 2016!  You should all be very proud of yourselves.  This was a burner for sure!  If you are still sore please be sure to get into the gym and do some mobility!

For those of you that are officially registered for the Open, here is how it’ll work: Head over to the Crossfit games page http://games.crossfit.com/ and sign in.  You’ll be prompted to input your score for 16.1 for a total of reps.  For instance, Annie completed 9+15 so she will input 249 for her reps.  These are posted on our Jab Crossfit FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/JabAthletes/page if you didn’t write it down.  Your affiliate is Jab Crossfit and you’ll have to write the name of one of the judges.  We have all of the coaches officially registered to judge so you’ll input either myself (Carissa Mellroth), Annie Beyer, Abigail Allyn, Chris Herrman or Ashley Fowler and if you completed the workout Rx or scaled.   Lastly, you’ll need to input your scores by Monday 2/29.  No late scores are accepted!  I am the affiliate manager and will validate your scores by mid-day Monday!   If you have any questions please ask your coaches!  Can’t wait to see what 16.2 brings us!  Now that pull ups and (thank goodness) burpees are done we most likely will not see those again during the Open.

For those of you who did scale or RX the 16.1 wod and realized that although mentally and physically challenging you actually could see yourself signing up for the Crossfit Open there is still time!  You have until Monday 2/29 as well to register!  We now have a total of 7 athletes registered from Jab Crossfit.  This makes me so happy!

Lastly, we have decided to do another Whole 30 for the month of March!  This is completely optional!  Its a great way to eat clean for a whole month, think of it as a reset for your body.  If you’ve never done the Whole 30 before and have been curious about it this is a chance to give it a go with your community as your support.    We’ve done this challenge in the past with great success!  We plan to start Monday, March 7th.  Head on over to the website for a good overview of what the Whole 30 looks like http://whole30.com/  If you have any questions ask in class!  We have a lot of athletes who are well versed in the Whole 30 and have lots of information they are happy to share.  We have a Whole 30 facebook page that is very resourceful for ideas, support, questions, and posts with beautiful food made by your fellow athletes.  Let me know if you’d like to be added!

Also, this week we will hit some new PR’s for your Strict Press and Front Squat!  You’ve all been working hard, I think we’ll see some new numbers this week!

Nice work everyone!  See you this week!
