A few people have been asking me about the Paleo Challenge in class. Don't let the fact that it officially started deter you from buying in.  You can join the challenge simply by adding the days you missed to the following month.  If you're not up for the challenge, here are some other things to tinker with:
1. Try to cook one new Paleo meal every week for the next four weeks.
2. Choose one unhealthy vice of yours and try to drop it for one month.
3. See if you can set a bed time Sunday through Thursday and get some more sleep.

It's getting COLD in the Lyceum. While we work out some solutions to our temperature problem here are some tips that will help keep you warm for your WODs:

1. Wear a hat. A significant amount of heat can be lost from your head, bring beanie or cap to help retain heat.
2. Wear layers.  Especially for the upper body.  Your bottom most layer should be some sort of synthetic wicking material like DryFit or Thinsulate while a hoodie or fleece should be fine for your outer layer.
3. Bring an extra layer. Your body can produce a fair amount of heat during the workout, enough to make you sweat buckets despite the temperature.  Don't get caught cooling down.. then freezing up in a wet shirt.  Have something warm and dry to change into after your workout.
4. Donate massive amounts of money for a new roof, new windows and more space heaters.

Good luck to Bjorn in the marathon this weekend! He promised to wave "hello" to the lyceum when he runs by.
