Noon Class had 17 go through last Fridays interval course. Fun having so many in class on a day like that!
Gym News: Our gym Newsletter went out last week. In case you missed it please read up as there are some schedule tweaks that are in the works for Jan 1st. http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=6a77f742d0be0901cf6741282&id=64e6009baa&e=%5BUNIQID
Just to give you a heads up again we will be having a little informal CFCA Holiday night out on next Thursday night December 15th. The idea is to come to the grinder class where we will likely do the “12 Days of Christmas” workout then head to the Brewery afterwards to Be Merry! Hope you can join us!
And Further down the line there will be a food tasting after Saturday Team WOD on 12/17 with the ladies of The Chicken or The Eggplant. If you are interested in getting some clean weekly meals delivered to CFCA come down and taste test!

If you pick heavier/harder elements rest as needed to keep movements crisp. NO SLOP for Speed

Outside the Gym: Go Do something active for 30-60+ mins at at moderate pace preferably with friends or family. (hike, jog, paddle, row, bike etc.) What you do matters less than just doing the duration at a conversational pace. A few of these easy sessions per week can really enhance your cardiovascular base which will help with both high intensity performance & recovery.
Mental Restoration: Carve a little time today (but really everyday) to slow down and prep for next week. Plan Meals, stretch out, meditate? Set yourself up for success cause those that fail to plan are planning to fail.
Recovery Day Suggestion

Start with 5 Mins of Foam Rolling
10 Min Easy Row or Ride (provided they are not in use with class)
5 Min Banded Stretches (mix between upper body and lower body each 5 min section)
Finish with 5 Mins of Foam Rolling
