John Hanson – individual on Saturday and team on Sunday

If you can get down to see our guys and gals compete, give them a huge cheer. If not, cheer from afar.

We will do our best to put the heat times and other pertinent information on T2 CrossFit’s Facebook page, but here is the link to the WODLife River Games FB page too.

LuRong Challenge

Almost finished week 4 so I suppose you could call this last week ‘hump week’. Hopefully it will be an easier ride from now to the end. I was just checking to see when is the last day to submit results etc and it is Monday, 31 October. But technically, if you do the WOD and get your measurements in before then, you would be finished. So if you are counting the days, this is for you.

I decided this week, I would do a lucky-dip into my meat section of my freezer and then look up a Paleo recipe online and cook it. If I don’t have a particular ingredient, I adapt. So far, the meals have been pretty tasty. Adds a little mystery to dinnertime.

88d17043-4ea5-4c7b-afea-62cb60728c7aLuRong Challenge workout: Saturday at 8:00am. Gym opens at 7:30am for warming up. First heat when the bells ring 8.

Going to be using these babies this week.
