Petra – #TBT

Endurance class will meet at Moakley Track tonight at 6pm. See you there!

Superhero 5K
Calling all Endurance Class participants! The 8-week program is almost over, so it’s time to start planning for our 5K test (and hopefully PR!). The Southie crew will be participating in the Superhero 5K on Sunday, October 26 in Cambridge, MA. This will be an excellent test of your endurance training on a great course. You could even dress up as a superhero if you wanted! Even if you haven’t been training with the Endurance classes, we hope you can step outside of your comfort zone and join the Southie crew for this race. It will be a good time!

Attention all Paleo Challengers!!! Attention all Paleo Challengers!!! Feeling lethargic? Not experiencing that extra push in the late rounds of a WOD? Don’t worry, I’ve got the solution, eat paleo friendly carbs around workout times and increase your dietary fat outside of workout times.

Yes, the Paleo diet is great because it prevents us from over eating simple carbohydrates. But in doing so, we are consuming fewer calories and automatically less fuel for our WODs. By eating paleo friendly carbs (sweet potatoes, fruit, coconut water, etc..) before working out, we ensure that these carbs fuel our workout. By consuming these carbs immediately after our WOD, they are used to aid our muscles cells in recovery as opposed to being stored away as body fat.

Outside of workout times, the consumption of high glycemic carb, even if they happen to be Paleo friendly, are likely to be stored away as fat when eaten alone or in excess. Instead, during these times, increase the amount of healthy fats you (avocado, olive oil, nut butter) consume to the point where you feel as if you are back to yourself crushing WODs. And be sure to enjoy shedding that body fat at the same time!
