With the Open just around the corner, this week will be dedicated to hitting some Open WOD’s from previous years. Tonight saw the return of Open WOD 11.3 “Death by Clean & Jerk”, after we hit a big box weakness and all round suck-fest!! 400m intervals! YUCK!!
An amazing effort tonight by everyone! And a great turn out even after our Throwdown with Crossfit Caerphilly yesterday!
Welcome to our March On Ramp Class !

WHY WE GET FAT

A condensed clip of a talk to CrossFit HQ staff by Gary Taubes. Author of “Good Calories Bad Calories” and “Why we get fat” on his extensive research and the benefits of a low carbohydrate high fat diet such as paleo and how it benefits health and help to reduce fatness and improve health. There are plenty more videos online featuring Taubes, they are well worth a visit if you are (and by now i’m pretty sure you are!) interested in actual Healthy Nutrition (Paleo) not the commonly thought ‘Healthy’ high carbohydrate (grain/wheat) misinformed western Diet.

So the open is over and back to business as usual at the box. Everyone did extremely well over the last 5 weeks. Sarah Finishing just outside qualification at 66th and the team so very close just 1 spot out at 31 out of every CrossFit box and entered athlete in europe! If you had said we would do so well we would have been more than pleased with those placings in our first entry to the Open. Having said that being so close but yet so far I’m sure everyone will agree at being gutted not to be going to regionals in Copenhagen!

The little things and a few more reps and a bit more practice of what we suck at and next year we can go that final inch or two. Well Done everyone it has been great at the box for the last 5 weeks onward and upward. Bring that extra focus to the box over the next year and let’s see where that takes us?! Fantastic place to be a part of and thank you guys for making it what it is.
