When I first sat down to plan out the eight week cycle leading up to the CrossFit Total, I was well aware that it would overlap the Open. Looking back at the last three years of the Open, nothing has come out that would prevent us from doing something heavy this Saturday. And if you look at all the workouts, nothing would have paired up horribly with the Total the day after… until 14.3. I cannot responsibly allow anyone to do both in the same weekend.
When the Open was approaching we all made a big push to get people to sign up and insisted on the importance of challenging yourself to go after higher goals and standards. So far I could not be happier or prouder of your determination, resilience and relentlessness. With that in mind I do not want a single person to stop that now. For this reason I have decided to move the CrossFit Total back two weeks to make way for 14.3 and allow plenty of time to fully recover from it. Anyone whose schedule does not allow them to make it on Saturday, March 29th and who would like to still do the Total, please contact me and we can make it up some other time.
So here goes, tomorrow’s programming is 14.3!
As far as the weekend goes, there are a few changes in the schedule. First off, due to the HEAVY nature of this workout, NO ONE will be allowed to do this workout more than once. You have two options to do this workout: the first is tomorrow evening in place of regularly scheduled classes. To make plenty of room for warming up and multiple heats there will be two classes Friday night, 5:00pm and 6:30 pm. Please try make some time to attend the 6:30 pm if you can and hang out with us after, you all will deserve it after this one. I know this is short notice so If you can’t get there by 6:30 that’s OK, get there as soon as you can. We will still try to run both sessions as a class. There will also be a 10am session Saturday to do the Open as well. There will be NO SUNDAY OPEN workout this week. As usual, please contact me if you have conflicts, some already have and are doing it tomorrow morning at 6am.
If you have a chance, watch the 14.3 announcement. Good luck to everyone this week!Read MoreRead More
