The physical and social benefits of CrossFit have been written about many times in this and other blogs.  One consistent drawback however is the hassle we go through when eating out at a restaurant; seemingly every dining experience involves compromising our lifestyle by having a “cheat” meal or making substitutions to the consternation or downright ire of your server.  That is all about to change; Alberto Mestre, the owner of Candelas Coronado, is partnering with Marc Homan of CrossFit Endurance to bring a host of Paleo friendly items to the menu.  For those who have not been there, Candelas Coronado (1201 First St, Coronado, CA 92118) is a beautiful location looking across the bay to San Diego.  The chef, Eduardo Baeza, put together a series of dishes that are Paleo friendly and taste out of this world.

What does this mean for members of CrossFit Mission Gorge?  Candelas’ has offered a 20% discount for gym members from now until September 18th, 2011. When you order let your server know you are from CrossFit Mission Gorge then sit back and enjoy a wonderful dining experience without having to compromise your nutrition goals or fight with your server.

The menu includes:

Raspberry Salad $ 9.00

A Salad of Hard Boiled Eggs, Asparagus, Artichoke Heart, Baby Tomatoes, Lettuce, Shredded Coconut and Raspberry with a Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Ensenada $ 14.00

Scallops, Smoked Salmon topped with Avocado marinated with Lime Juice, Onion, Jalapeño and Parsley.

Random Meals and School Lunch Ideas- Everyday Paleo

Jill Spealler comments on her Games Experience

Below is a link to an article by Blair Morrison.  He was a competitor at the 2011 CF Games and he runs a site called Any Where Fit.  He is a big proponent of fitness and chooses to do most of his workouts outside in the elements.  He is a great writer and has put together an interesting piece about fitness and what it means.  Take sometime to sit down, read and absorb this article. 

Fitness is...

"So, essentially, the gym becomes a refuge. Here we have control over our decisions, we make progress every day, and we do it for ourselves. It’s a one-hour vacation from “real” that we need to take and appreciate. Which is why I can never understand why people are afraid of it. Don’t dread this hour, take pleasure in it!"

-Blair Morrison

One of our members here at CFMG is Running the Leadville Trail 100 this weekend! Yes a 100 Mile race!  Jason C has been training hard for the past few months using CrossFit and CrossFit endurance programming to prepare for this race.  He has recently met with Coach Dawn Fletcher for some last minute race adjustments and mental preparation.  Be sure to ask him about it when you see him next! We placed a course description and link to the event below.

The 100 Mile back and out course is in the midst of the Colorado Rockies Low point 9,2000 feet, high point is Hope Pass at 12,600 feet. Majority of the race is on forest trails with some mountain roads. Click here for more information on this amazing race!

 

The Whole9 Seafood Trifecta

Rest Days!

WOD

"Bear Complex"

Complete 7 sets of the following sequence

1 Power clean

1 Front squat

1 Push-press

1 Back squat

1 Push-press

-5 rounds-

You can pick the weight you want to use for each round. You may increase or decrease the weight as you move through the rounds. We will post the heaviest weight you use for a given set. Jerking is acceptable as are squat cleans. You can even deadlift and then hang clean. The squats and push presses can be distinct or combined into thrusters, but you can not receive the clean in a squat clean and go directly into a thruster, you must stand first

Rest as much as you need between rounds. You can rest during the set too as long as you are not resting on the ground, even to re-grip.
