Coming also in October on the 21st!!

The Challenge

Per their web site:

http://onlythefearless.com/

What should our racers expect on the day?

• 5k or 10k run on flat & mountain bike trails (with random water canons).
• Monkey bars over a mud pit or even quicksand (we have the recipe).
• Rope climb over a river (or swim across it).
• A .25 mile swim across the lake or forfeit and walk around but have to carry a car tire.
• Rope challenges (cargo nets etc.)
• Logic puzzles / brain teasers.
• Quicksand pit (no seriously we have the recipe).
• Semi submerged tunnel crawl (fear of confined spaces / drowning)
• Ice plunge (basically a pit filled with ice and water).
• Beat the crap out of a punch bag. (timed)
• Finish line is a barbed wire mud pit crawl and a final climb up to a leap of faith into the lake.

Think that’s it?
To get to the finish line there is one final challenge – time to see who is TRULY fearless.
And what is this BIG surprise challenge?
Sorry, but that has to stay a secret until race day as we don’t want to risk people freaking out prior to the race, just trust us, NO-ONE has done anything like this before at one of these events.
It’s honestly going to blow peoples minds.

Something for the kiddies:
We will also have some mini mud runs for the kids.
A 100 / 200 meter mini obstacle course with mud pit for the 4 – 8 year olds
A full mile version for the 9 – 13 year old group. Tons of smaller but still fun obstacles and of course, tons of mud.

Oh Monday how you creeped up on me 9/17/12

Monday snuck up on me. Almost 1 year at Crossfit Fortress! A couple more weeks. Super duper tired after today's WOD. I forgot to take a picture of te wal so some of the WuWod is a guess :) So sorry

(Wu WOD):
  1. take a lap 1/3 mile
  2. 10 alternating lunges (35lb bar)
  3. 12 thruster (I think)
  4. 10 alternating lunges (35lb bar)
  5. 12 thrusters
PVC warm ups and practice lifts for the WOD
SWOD:
over head squats?? (oh my gosh you think by now I would remember the names, oh I feel so absent minded :))
2x3 @ 60% 55lbs
2x3 @ 70% 65 lbs

squat balance 
3x3 @ 55lbs

WOD:
7 min AMRAP
  1. 15 thrusters (35lbs)
  2. 30 doube unders/150 singles
I did 3 rounds. Those damn double unders go me! Ugh I swear! I want to take the damn rope ond hit it against the wall. Oh well I tried and tried and finally at the end on my 3rd round I could finally do it. I guess better late than never :)
So after the WOD Daniel says ok come on lets go do a lap! Are you kidding me?! I said you are nuts what for didn't you WOD enough? He says "I broke in my shoes now I want to run to see how they feel when I run!" Oh gosh I went, but I so cut thru the parking lot! I was tired and did not want to run! Well I did it, maybe half a$$ but I ran after a WOD. Completely nuts.
Anyway!
See ya!

100 Burpees

you that's it! 100 burpees LOL It took me 10 minutes. UGH! When I got past 50 I started counting down and when I had 10 left I was counting down out loud it definitely was a mind game to myself.

So yeah I don't know where everyone went to. They missed out on BURPEES!!!!
I hope I do not have to do anymore burpees for the rest of the week!

Monday 9-10-12 Whew!

I missed out last week. We had state inspection at my job all week and was working late everyday. I didn't even see my house eveyday till the sun was down :( I missed my kids all week. Today made up for it. As Allison would say "go running?" :) On to the >>>>

Warm up:
  1. lap 1/2 mile
  2. 10 PVC pass thrus
  3. 10 skin the cats left and 10 right
  4. Practice lifts for the WOD
SWOD:
  1. Front squats 3 rounds of 5 (65lbs)
WOD:
20 min AMRAP
  1. max pull ups
  2. 400 meter run
I did 52 total pull ups with green band and 6 rounds. It was different each round. 1st round I did 12-14 next was 8-10 pull ups. Whenever we do it again I will try more pull ups and less running *wink wink*. but really I want to try more pull ups for real. The running was as usual not my favorite thing to do, but it was great to be WODing again.

This was a really difficult WOD. I am so glad to go back to the BOX!! I am so sorry, but I can barely keep my eyes open so a short and sweet blog

Thanks,
Annette
