In case you missed this weekend's torture on mainsite...

Meet upstairs at 1610 hours.

then partner up and 10 leap frogs, which is one person working.  Shoot (or crawl if you must) between your partner's legs, turn around, the partner leans down and puts hands on their thighs, then the working partner jumps over the top of them.  It sounds harder than it is.

Partner up so that one is judging and the other is working.  Make is strict. 

50 strict pushups in one set for time and exactly correct completion.

No perturbance of the midline.  No movement at the hip knee or head.

Use CFJ's article about the pushup as your reference.

WOD 2:

20 back extensions
15 hip extensions
10 hip-back extensions

Targets Challenges Competitions and the Like

Our sport is catching badguys.  However for most, that is not enough--either not hard enough or not tangible enough.  It can be useful in goal setting to have something on the horizon that will keep you motivated to work out hard and not skip a workout. That can be a race.  The Rock and Roll Half is coming up if you have some extra cash and like music while you run (it does have one of the best routes of any race in the Portland area.  You can aim further out for Hood to Coast. Your goal could be some grappling.  Impact Jiu Jitsu has the Submission League matches this spring if you want to get your fight on. 

Your goal could be to compete in the sport of fitness. One of the commercial CrossFit gyms in the county, CrossFit PFB in Sandy, is hosting a CrossFit competition--The Festivus Games.  

Short term goals, intermediate goals, and long term goals.  Set some goals.

Sugar doesn't just look like crack

Here is a great video from TED:

While you are stuck in your house during this snowpocalypse, this might just scare you away from the Oreos or whatever bad stuff comes marching out of the pantry.

2014-02-06 Snowpocalypse

Not panicking here, but just in case it's going to turn into some kind of snow event, please check back here after 1300 to determine if there is going to be an organized WOD.  If it snows, go out and play in the snow.  If not, we will make it a hot and sweaty upstairs at Brooks. 

Update on 2-6-14:

Wow.  What a great reminder of the variance of this job.  One second we were worried about snow and the next second every single person on duty is working on the murder of a fellow county employee.  Terrible loss, but great work from everyone.
