Attention Ninjas & Ninjettes: We are getting close to our traditional “12 Days of Christmas”.
For those of you who are not familiar with it, the “12 Days of Christmas” involves completing 12 WOD’s in a row, which consist of only Traditional Benchmarl Girl workouts and Hero WOD’s.
It will begin on Monday 8th December, we will train for 6 days (Thursday & Friday will become regular Class days), rest Sunday, and then train for 6 more days. It is a very tough but rewarding 12 days of training, try to get to as many of the classes as you can!
As always you get to choose which WOD’s we will be up against 🙂 Tomorrow morning I will be writing up a list of workouts on one of the Whiteboards. For each of the 12 Days, there will be two WOD’s to choose from. You must decide between the two for each day, then put ticks next to the ones you would like to see get programmed. They will be listed in no particular order.
I will only write the names of the workouts on the board, it is up to you to research them (in your CrossFit Teesside Diaries, CrossFit.com, Google) if you are not already familiar with them before you decide. You have until Friday 5th December to get your votes in, after then, the WOD’s which have the most votes will be programmed. Details of each WOD will then be posted on the website the night before it is programmed 🙂
Today is “OPEN GYM” day. The box is open at the usual times, however there are no set classes. Use today to Catch Up on a recent WOD you have missed. Today is an ideal opportunity to come in and practice your Technique, or hit some Strength Training in the lifting section. If you are feeling beat up from the past few days of training, come and get your Stretch on in the Mobility Corner or take a well earned Rest Day 🙂
A new addition to Thursdays “Open Gym” is the “Thursday Beast WOD” (aka “Throw Up Thursdays). This is an endurance based WOD which stays clear of all things technical, it will include things like Running, Rowing & Skiing. You may find yourself also flipping tyres and carrying things, possibly even the occasional trip up “The Hill”.
There are still no set classes on a Thursday, this is just something that you will find on the Whiteboard along with all the other catch up WODs from this week. If this is something you like the sound of then feel free to come in and crack on (there is usually a group doing this at 8:30am & 9:30am, and a couple of groups going for it in the evening). We will be alternating between an Interval style workout and a good old fashioned long Slog on a weekly basis, it will not be posted the night before, so come prepared for all situations!
