shifting & The 90-DC Finale

I’ve been remiss lately. Guests from out of town. Meetings and planning a huge event at work. Today is my first day back in the Triple-Wide since Thursday. My eating has not been particularly stellar, as many eventful moments are typically filled with many eventful indulgences. I won’t say I went over board which is good, but I wasn’t particularly strict either. Somewhere in the happy middle is where I landed. And have since put on the brakes, hit the WOD tonight, and feel good. It’s important to be able to enjoy the occasional indulgences, and still apply the brakes.

The 90-DC has ended, and this week will be Benchmark WOD’s at ACF so participants can get in and see their progress. Kind of anticlimactic that I didn’t do anything particularly special to mark this moment, the end of the 90-DC. I’m thinking this is probably because there is no end to this, not for me. It’s just another day in what we hope is a lifetime routine. My thinking has shifted, and so too my momentum.

Here’s what’s required for the 90-DC Finale, by midnight, April 7:

  • After Photos: Coaches take your “After” picture no later than Thursday, April 5th.
  • After Measurements
  • Benchmark Workouts:
  1. The 1RM Deadlift
  2. 2k Row for time
  3. “Fran”
  • Create a video blog, less than 90 seconds, post to you-tube making your case as to why you deserve to win the 90 Day Challenge

This must all be completed no later than Saturday April 7th, no exceptions.
