I hope you guys aren't feeling as destroyed by the work today as I am! Tomorrow's WOD has built in rest (thankfully) but here is a strategy on how to approach it:
Within these 5min windows, it's all about moving for the whole time. The only movement that athletes will likely stop on is the deadlifts. Therefore, this is the movement we want to focus on. The pace of the runs and the pace of the burpees can be dialed in to a speed that will allow athletes to complete each set of deadlifts in 1 or 2 sets. With 5min of rest to follow, we want to make it a goal to do little to no resting during the “go” window to maximize how much work gets done.
5 min AMRAP:
Buy-In: 600m Run
12 Deadlifts (185/135)
12 Lateral Burpees over the Barbell
Rest 5 min

If you are participating in the nutrition challenge, congrats on making it two weeks! There are still two weeks left, but hopefully you have gotten into a solid routine of eating healthy food and tracking. Remember, the points for tracking increase each week the challenge continues, so don't forget to enter in your meals and send them to your coach each day.
If you are getting burnt out on eating the same meals, check out this website about easy, paleo meals you can prep ahead of time. If you need something quick, grab a meal from our Clean Conscience Foods freezer!
Over the weekend the East, South, and Europe Regionals took place. The workouts are streamed live on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so you can check them out live or watch them recorded. If you are up for a road trip, the Atlantic Regional is June 1-3 in West Palm Beach. Jared, Maisie, and I will be there...more

If anyone wants to volunteer to help out at the Airfest this weekend, there is a sign up sheet on the desk at the gym, or talk to Thomas/Eric. They are looking for people to help run a booth selling food and souvenirs. It's a great way to get on base for the show!
If you're looking for a spot to see the action but don't want to fight traffic, there is a field that opens to the public on S. Wall St. off Interbay. The planes fly right overhead.

Have you heard of a keto diet? Want to know what it is and how it differs from eating paleo? Check out this article by Robb Wolf, an old school paleo nutrition guy on Paleo Vs Keto Diets.
Wolf says, "Regardless of the dietary approach (paleo, keto, vegan etc.) your #1 focus is eating whole, unprocessed foods with an eye towards nutrient density." And I agree!

Our event takes place in West Palm Beach this year from June 1-3, and will be made of up athletes from the Atlantic region. Not only will you see high level athleticism, but you can also check out amazing vendors and get some much needed CrossFit swag. You can even interact with athletes who are competing. One year Jared and I met Dave Castro, and he even met Greg Glassman, CEO of CrossFit. We will be in attendance with Regionals rookie, Maisie Page.
Two events have been announced so far, a repeat of the "Triple Three" from the Games a few years back, and "Linda" aka the Three Bars of Death.
You can purchase tickets and look for a hotel by going to the CrossFit Games site.
