Warm-up: 500m Row
MetCon – 4 rounds for time:
15 Air Squats
Wow, look at the number of people choosing to sweat a little at CrossFit Ktown. Today was a milestone in that we broke a previous record of 22 attendees with a whopping 25. A pat on the back goes out to all of you.
In attendance today was Michael Cooper, a drop-in from Motor City CrossFit up in Detroit, Michigan. He was on his way to Chattanooga and only stopped in to Knoxville for a CrossFit work out here at Ktown. He was a workhorse, and he never stopped cheering on the others in the 3:00 class. Thanks for coming in Michael; we hope to see you again.
We also had a new guy, Jon Buchanan, swing by for his first ever CrossFit workout. By the looks of his effort, he will be an animal. We scaled it back a bit for him, and he absolutely dominated it. Good work, Jon.
A hearty Ktown welcome to our two newest members: Matt Hinton and Carol Boaz. Matt just finished a free week and now looks forward to many more grueling 6AM workouts. Hopefully Mr. Parrot will get back in the gym after his injury and add another warm body to the early crew. Carol made the big plunge after contemplating the long drive from Seymour. She realizes elite fitness isn’t easy to attain, so she welcomes the 30 minute drive to CrossFit Ktown for, if I can say so myself, some great coaching.
We had a few other new people checking us out, as well. Kyle, Zach, Brandon, Surekha, Trey, Brittany, and Emily all came in today looking to get some good quality work done, and they definitely accomplished that goal.
CrossFit Ktown is losing one of its regular Saturday morning crew members in Samantha Radtke. Samantha will be heading to law school in Florida tomorrow morning. We all are sad to see you go Sam, good luck and have fun down there!
Lastly, I have to give a shout out to two UT Vols fans who are plying their CrossFit trade down in Florida now among a bunch of Gator fans. They have been following our daily WODs with much fervor, and we thank them for it. I hope you guys find a CrossFit gym down there that suits your needs – until then we’ll know you’re doing every workout with us down there.
Sorry for the lack of brevity,
