The weekend.
A few great things happened this weekend. Thank you to all that were part of and made this an amazing weekend!
One, we signed a new lease for a bigger and better space. CrossFit King of Prussia will be moving into 8,000 square feet. That's a little over 5 times the size of our current box!!! We will keep you posted on a move date and details.
Two, Mike from CF Gotham gave us an awesome seminar on Olympic Lifting (thanks Mike!!!), let's put some of that to use in our WOD for 8.3.09!
Three, we had a Personal Defense Readiness Seminar with Jason Dury who is a Level 2 PDR & S.P.E.A.R. systems coach and Steve Wakefoose of Providence Combatives who is a PDR & S.P.E.A.R. systems coach. Both men hold multiple certifications under world-renowned self-defense expert Tony Blauer. A HUGE thank you, because I know all who attended walked away with a great knowledge of self defense and far more confidence.

W.O.D. 8.3.09
Front Squat
*warm up with about 75% of your Front Squat for 2 sets of 5 before going for your 3 Rep Max.

Brigantine Sprint Triathlon:
1/4m SWIM, 12m BIKE, 3.1m RUN

Laura P: 1hr 19min- PR'd by a minute this year coming in 162'nd place out of 635 competitors. Very strong on the bay swim, really getting used to the bike.

Tim P: 1hr 13min- PR'd by 3min this year coming into 80th. Much improved on the swim, and felt stronger (endurance) from previous years on this course.

Both T1(swim-bike) and T2(bike-run) times were very efficient too)
