The Warrior Dash is coming to the North East this year.  We've already got a couple folks signed up. Anyone else interested?

You're supposed to dress up for the Warrior Dash.

It seems so obvious that we should send a BK team dressed as "The Warriors" from the movie.

i am signed up for the 1pm heat.

In case you're undecided about the Warrior Dash, just read the FAQ section: http://www.warriordash.com/faq.php

Not only do you get free beer, food and t-shirt...but you get a sweet warrior helmet! That should make up your mind for you:)

So far the following from SBK are signed up: Fox, Jess, Sarah, Paul, Sameer, Andy, Steph P. & Dan R.

It looks like they changed the "no barefooting" rule they had posted earlier. So much for that excuse.

I am so down to dress up like one of the warriors and then run a far distance. How should i sign up i mean are we doing this as a team or as individuals?
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike
There's no team sign-up, just individual. But so far everyone from SBK has signed up for the 1pm heat so that we can run it, and party afterwards, as a "team".

I hope that was an appropriate use of quotation marks... ;)

@tam - only if you're shooting at the walls of heartache (bang bang).
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecca
@Paulie-Shot-Shorts thanks man.

Anyone else find it odd that David knows about The Warriors but has never watched Star Wars?

Looking forward to pressing today. Going to 5x5 as opposed to a 1RM.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDan Rx'd
Is it safe to assume CFQ will be dressed as the Baseball Furies?
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJoe
David-Thanks for the response yesterday.You should watch Star Wars.





December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWillie
If you'd rather, David, Milo can give you a complete dramatic recitation. He probably knows the whole thing by heart.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertam
Becca: Indeed I am shooting at the walls of heartache. I am the Warrior, after all.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertam
all you need to do is watch Eddie Izzard's 'Death Star Canteen' bit.

If anyone is looking for a fun new rest-day activity for 2010, Samantha and I have signed up for the Introduction to Ballet workshop at Mark Morris Dance Group:http://markmorrisdancegroup.org/the_school/adults/class_schedulesThe first class is Tuesday Jan 5th and is $75 for the six-class series. Would love to see some fellow CFSBK ladies (or men!) there with us. I think the barre will be a perfect complement to the barbell! ;)

December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBethany
Steph that was awesome! I nearly choked on my apple and came close to exposing my youtube watching at work!
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJess
I had to IMDb The Warriors. Man, how could I have missed this film, starring such luminaries as Michael Beck and James Remar, that came out when I was -5 years old?

Re: Warrior Dash, looks fun but my brain can barely get past tomorrow. September 2010?!

I miss Milo. I'm sure his Star Wars synopsis would be even better than the real thing.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSteph "Snip" W
@Bethany - That would be awesome! Us guys can all wear our "Skins" compression clothing and fit in perfectly!

@Stephanie W - and yet I'm sure you heard of Star Wars, a film that was released when you were -6 years old... Milo's synopsis would be much better than George Lucas' "definitive" vision.

@Frankie - Love it!
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDan Rx'd
Shouldn't we really all dress up like Jacinto?We can all shave our heads and dye our beards white.

Of course, the leather vests and afros are super cool too.http://abrooklynlife.com/photos/uncategorized/557971_2.jpeg

I am in for Warriors, but of course, cannot commit to where I will be next Sept.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrian
I signed up for the 1:00pm heat before I read the comments. It's like there is some sort of shared brainwave between CFSBK members.

Back felt okay today. Still took it easy on presses. Did 8x545-65-85-95-100-100-100-95

Press (5): 75 x 5then 15-12-9 @ 55#Ended with pull-up practice--I think the kipping breakthrough will be any day now

I too love The Warriors. It was my main source for NYC subway life until I moved here, and I've been sorely disappointed. No mime gangs to be found.

I need a real workout. I'm feeling lazy.

Next week I'm going to give Crossfit By Overload a try in Southern California. Has anyone ever tried that box? I'm seriously looking forward to getting out of the city for a few days.

Love seeing so many people signed up for the Warrior Dash considering it's 9 months away!

WU: 3 Rounds NFT of-10 Partner Med ball toss each (14lbs)-5 Strict Pullups (blue band)-10 Walking Rotational Lunges (each leg)

Presses:(45x5x2, 55x5)Work: 65x5, 60x5, 62x5x3

I felt like Goldilocks trying to find the right weight. So crazy how such a little change in weight feels completely different.

Snuck in Front Squats while 6pm was warming up:(45x5, 75x5, 95x5)Work: 120x3x5

Finished with a little double-under practice. Was able to get 30 on my 2nd attempt, then couldn't get more than 12 and called it quits.

Warmed up with 45x7, 95x5 then straight sets of 100x5x5Still working on form, shoulder mobility.McG - Thanks for the tip, the last set really felt better.

I'm signed up for the Dash at 1pm. That's way in the future but way too fun looking to pass it up.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Mak
sorry i missed everyone today. ballet could be cool actually -- that is at bam, right, around the corner from my place? very convenient... but i am out of town on the 5th. are they ok with late starts?
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSameer Parekh
5x5 at 80#. Piece of cake. I understand that sets across are part of the larger workout rotation, but with my uncertain schedule I feel like I get more from sets with increasing weight.

I could be down for some ballet, but I'm afraid the class might be too basic. Y'all are looking at a Level III dancer in the Cecchetti method.
December 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMatt U.
If time were no issue I would love to do some ballet.

Liked this warm up. Slow pullups are kinda fun.

Warmed up the press with 45x5 and 65x5.

Work: 95, 105, 114, 115(PR), stopped content and not wanting a dramatic fail. Prior to last week my old PR was 110 (and had been for a long time) but then instead of attempting 115 last week and failing (had done that two or three times) I did 112. Now today I got the 114 and the 115.

I am now a big fan of microloading.
December 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMalcolm
Sameer - late starts are totally cool and yes it is the place right around the corner from your building. Malcolm, you can make time! do it do it do it!
December 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBethany
When I look at the ballet web page I am not finding the Tuesday class, what time is it?

I did however find a Nick approved quotation mark usage.







On Mon. Jan.18 there will "not" be a Yoga class or Belly Dancing class.
December 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMalcolm
Malcolm, it's listed as a workshop as opposed to a class (keep on scrolling down that page).

Here's a rip from the page:

The real reason we don't do much Oly lifting at SBK

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8414375.stm
December 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFox
Warm-up: 5 strict PU, 10 rotating lunges each leg, 10 partner wall ball toss (14lb). - next time adding weight to the pull-ups. Why is it that lunges are always miserable?

Press: (45x5, 55x5) 70x5x5Stayed at the same weight as last time because I wanted to work on my form and because my arms seemed quite fatigued already. Next time will go up ~5lbs.

Awesome Foundations class - they all learned to do double unders... and it isn't that they are secret buddy-lee devotees. Most hadn't touched a jumprope in upwards of 10 years! They just learned how to do them in one class.. jealous!

I was too fatigued on the last set to finish it out. This is one of my least favorite/efficient movements. Worked through it and I got some good pointers from Sgt. Mike.
