They started spraying the ceilings and I've deemed it unfit to CrossFit in the space. We're going to switch up plans for an outdoor WOD.  You'll still be able to drop your stuff off upstairs and use the bathrooms but we will NOT be in the main floor today. According to the workers, they'll be done and out of the space this evening.  The current plan is to do the Push Jerk and Pace row tomorrow instead.

Team Workout
Run 800m
200 Kettlebell Swings
100 Burpees
Run 800m

You and your partner complete the Run and then partition the KB/Burpee work however you'd like. Once all the reps have been completed you both run the second 800m.

A few folks emailed me saying they couldn't make the weekend tryouts for the affiliate team.  We will hold additional tryouts the week after.  Stay tuned for some dates and times.

How will you enjoy the nice weather this week?

Ceiling Spraying updates
So it turns out the ceiling job is bigger than the Airsealis folks estimated.  They're going to be spraying Tuesday through Thursday this week and next.  Classes will continue to go on as scheduled.  This week the front half of the gym will get finished and next week the back end will be sprayed.  Since the back end is where we keep most of our equipment, we'll probably be running the WODs outside next T/W/R.

Push Jerks will rotate between Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Last week we Jerked on Thursday and this week we'll Jerk tomorrow.
