Thursday Updates: Give ’em a hand

1) Hand care pre-Hero Week: see old post with link to CrossFit Virtuosity. Or check out this link forwarded by Sam. You want some callous to avoid tearing, but you need to tend to those callouses (shave with razor, or grind down) or else they fold over and tear. Lotion can reduce cracking/splitting of dry, repair spots.

2) Saturday Aug 13, 9AM Combined Class/CF Appreciation Day. No charge. Workout, Refreshments, Paleo Seminar, Hanging Out!

3) Get motivated. View the page of Hero Weeks Past.

4) Get the word out about Saturday August 20th of Hero Week. See this page or check the Events on the CF Facebook page. Please send it around, bring a friend, let’s represent in regular CF style.

    wow – talk about some serious throwback pictures! CF Hero Week has always held a special place in my heart, but this hero week will be different. Let’s get some for all the men and women who aren’t here to get some for themselves, who gave their lives protecting ours.

    Something I wrote for the Teleflex team when I gave them Pags’ workout:
    Do something new today
    Do something you haven’t tried or were afraid to do
    Run faster, jump higher, push yourself harder
    Because you’re here, he’s not

    So many times, people are afraid to push harder because it’s uncomfortable or it’s hard or it hurts. Well at least you can feel that pain – embrace it and push through. It’s only pain. We all work hard every day, but this is the week when we go all out and push more, and I am proud to do so with all of you!

      I would like to co-sign this message since I couldn’t have said it any better myself!

      Torn hands, fatigued muscles, unexplainable bruises and all…this is my favorite week of the year.

      Good stuff, Gretch!!! I have been doubting myself way too much lately, and this comment really put it in perspective. Don’t think. Just do. Because we get to.
