Workout of the Day

Tax Day workout
Run 5k

If you can show documented proof that you’ve run 5k (at one time) in the last two weeks, your coach will run you thru a different workout.

Everyone always says, “Why would I come to CrossFit to run when I could run on my own??”

The answer?  Because you probably don’t.

The run is towards Marist High school until you cross the post marker and the V shaped tree shown below.  It’s right next to the Track.  This is the halfway marker.

Top 6 Shortcuts of Fitness (in this order)
1.  Sleep
1.  Nutrition
3.  Hydration
4.  Mobility
5.  Fish Oil

The one to rule them all is logging your workouts.  By logging you workouts you’ll find all the above improved.  Don’t forget to log your “lifestyle log” on a daily basis.  this’ll help you improve the 5 above more consistently.

Oh, and did you know we have stats running on the ‘lifestyle log’ during the month of april?  I’ll post the results at the end of the month, but so far this month:

- Most Healthy Eater:  Lynne M

Most Hydrated:  Angel M
Best Sleeper: Angel M
Most logged workouts:  Padma

We’ll start a new one at the beginning of the month and have a leaderboard for it!

James B’s Research on where to stay for regionals, get your room before they sell out: “I think that the Best Western at 24415 Russell Road Kent, WA, 98032-1787 is the best place to stay for regionals. It’s one of the cheapest, it’s only 1 mile from the ShoWare center and there’s a restaurant nearby.

“If people go to and click the “hotels nearby” link, it’s number 8 on the list. If you go through the games.crossfit website it’s cheaper than if you go to the hotel directly.”
