It's getting COLD in the Lyceum. While we work out some solutions to our temperature problem here are some tips that will help keep you warm for your WODs:

1. Wear a hat. A significant amount of heat can be lost from your head, bring beanie or cap to help retain heat.
2. Wear layers.  Especially for the upper body.  Your bottom most layer should be some sort of synthetic wicking material like DryFit or Thinsulate while a hoodie or fleece should be fine for your outer layer.
3. Bring an extra layer. Your body can produce a fair amount of heat during the workout, enough to make you sweat buckets despite the temperature.  Don't get caught cooling down.. then freezing up in a wet shirt.  Have something warm and dry to change into after your workout.
4. Donate massive amounts of money for a new roof, new windows and more space heaters.

Good luck to Bjorn in the marathon this weekend! He promised to wave "hello" to the lyceum when he runs by.

What's going on at the Lyceum this week? It seems that Sunday afternoons a new Parkour group will be training downstairs.  Take a few minutes after your WOD to check out these athletes, you won't be disappointed.

Lavall displays proper lifting mechanics even at significantly sub maximal loads. Don't get lazy when setting up for kettlebell swings!

Quote of the week:
"As far as training partners go, if you run with the lame, you will develop a limp. So only train with those who have the same goals as your own. Everyone can't be a world champ, but we can all be better."
- Louie Simmons, The Westside Barbell Book of Methods
