Combo Catch o’ the Day: Happy Birthday Allyson. She turned a very strong 40 last week, so, as we have done for years past, we celebrate with a rep for each year.
Workout option #2:
My new friends at the Vacaville Prison have challenged me to a ‘burpee-off.’ This is, of course, what friends of Bodytribe do, throw down friendly gauntlets to see what we’re capable of. How many can we do in 10 minutes? They mercifully cut it down from 20 minutes. I think they’re clocking their numbers tomorrow. I guess I’ll do the same. I have a plan to not die while doing them, but i don’t think I’m going to offer these guys much of a challenge. I’m expecting their numbers to probably be double of whatever I pull off.
So the bad news is that yet again I have to postpone the Fighter Conditioning Workshop. It was a lofty endeavor to squeeze in so many workshops this month, while I’m also prepping a trip to DC (which requires learning about 32 songs), finishing up the DVD and hosting the usual Second Saturday Art show. So not only did I not list an accurate date on the website anyway, I’ll have to move it entirely to another future time. Ugh. I apologize for those who have contacted me about it.
For those who joined us for the successful Joint Mobility Tune Up this weekend, thank you kindly for spending a Saturday morning rolling around with me. As I mentioned, that was a precursor for the Movement Meditation class, which I will hopefully be starting up in February. Meanwhile, let me give a shout to our friends at Zuda Yoga, who run a wonderful program with plenty of classes all week long, opening up the mind and body in productive ways.
Here’s a preview of the upcoming DVD:
The Bodytribe New Years Potluck
What better way to spend those few hours before the clubs really get hopping anyway by bringing yourself, any friends you might have, and possibly a little grub, to your favorite workout den to share some memories of 2008 and ‘speak your latent convictions’ about 2009? We’re going to have the ceremonial erasing of the PR board, so we can start setting new personal records while demolishing last year’s numbers. We’ll also share some ideas about 2009 and swap some goals, dreams and tips about how we’re going to conquer the upcoming year. We can chat about program design, or the upcoming season of Dexter… whatever feels good. Come on out. This Friday night at 7:30 pm. We’ll be here eating and dreaming until about 9:30.
