We hosted an awesome group from Proctor School’s Ocean Classroom Program on Friday. These kids are spending their fall sailing on the Roseway… chasing warmer weather down to the Caribbean and learning mucho life skills on the way. What an awesome opportunity! Thanks to John Talaber (who trained with us all summer) for brining them in. Good luck to a safe voyage!
“Brunch on A Boat” This Sunday 10/14: We’re heading out on the Lady Sea with Mike Mann and his crew for a little Sunday harbor cruise! We’re boarding at 10:45am and pushing off at 11am. Don’t be late or you’ll miss out on the fun! Meet in the parking lot of the Cape Ann Marina. $5 will get you on the boat and one raffle ticket (don’t worry, you can buy more). This will cover tip for the crew. Significant others and friends are welcome! CASH bar – bring some dollars for Mimosas and Bloody Marys! This is an 18+ event
CFCA Transitional News: The NEW owners will be sending out a letter this week with some fun introductions and general info/future plans as we transition ownership Nov 1st. Check your email or we will likely post it in the FB Group as well.
Lastly…. Friday Morning Trail Running has officially come to a close for the season. It’s pretty dark at 6AM now which cuts off the time we need to run and get back and onto to work or family life. Looking forward to spring when we will start that up again and kudos to those who made it a regular thing!

Prioritize clean movement. If you need to make adjustments to sled weight no problem, just know what you need so it can be done fairly fast. Take that Min to recover and reset for the next round.
GET OUTSIDE! 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 can 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.
“Around the World” for 3-5 Rounds
3 Min Easy Row
3 Min Easy Ski
3 Min Easy Airdyne
3 Min Yoga Flow
Why are these workouts important? https://opexfit.com/blog/why-do-we-love-map-10. These should be easy efforts. Fully conversational or nose breathing only pace (which is REALLY SLOW!) Get blood flowing, flush out soreness and prep the body for the next harder session.
