God kveld alle sammen!
"Can I get an encore, do you want more?"
Well, you are going to get more. Because today we did 21-15-9 Overhead squats and chest-to-bar pull-ups, with a cash-out of 45 burpees over the bar. But next week you will get.... Fran. So after this encore, Fran will be a walk in the park.
Or at least lighter.
And less complex movements.
We had the seniors, teens, sun & sprekk course, and pull-up course today as well. Their training differs by degree from what we do in the normal WOD, but not by kind. So the seniors, for instance, did overhead squats and a 21-15-9 workout. The teens, for instance, did "apologies". The sunn & sprekk, for instance, did filthy fifty. You get the point by now, right?!
You might have noticed today, that Andrea and Thomas were not coaching. They will be back soon, but send them your best wishes because they are both not feeling in top shape right now due to a little virus infection. On the other hand, you will also have noticed that Mats has been coaching some classes since the beginning of the week. Mats has been training and coaching for years, so we are very happy with his addition to the coaching team. Say hi to him if you run into him, or give him a high five if he is working out in the same class as you.
We are very happy that most of the COVID regulations are now lifted, but still ask you to take into account the national regulations. On top of that, we have noticed that a lot of people need some time to build back up to their normal training routine after an infection. So take it easy, do some conditioning intervals, keep the weights to a moderate level, do something that doesn't wreck you. A general rule of thumb is that if you have been sick for a number of days, you should give your body at least the same number of days after you have been sick to fully recover. In other words, if you are out for 4 days, take another 4 days to let your body fully recover and then start building up again.
I know it's not what you'd like to do, but in the long run, it will set you up for success. Rome wasn't built in a day, and fitness is not won or lost in a week either. It is, however, built over consistent months of sleeping, eating, and training. I'm glad to be around a lot of people that make this a priority in their lives. Thanks for that.
Good night, sleep tight and don't let the Fran-cough bite.
