Workout: “Tabata This”
From CrossFit.com FAQs:
“Tabata Intervals ( 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times) is applied in turn to the Squat, Rower, Pullups, Sit-ups, and Push-ups with a one minute rotation break between exercises. Each exercise is scored by the weakest number of reps (calories on the rower) in each of the eight intervals. During the one minute rotation time allowed the clock is not stopped but kept running. The score is the total of the scores from the five stations.
A total score of 53 (Execllent score, BTW) is determined by adding up the lowest number of reps in any set of each exercise.
12 row (use the calorie counter and call each calorie a rep)
This score is a 53.”

“In a study that looked at the happiness of nearly 5000 individuals over a period of twenty years, researchers found that when an individual becomes happy, the network effect can be measured up to three degrees. One person’s happiness triggers a chain reaction that benefits not only their friends, but their friends’ friends, and their friends’ friends’ friends. The effect lasts for up to one year.
The flip side, interestingly, is not the case: Sadness does not spread through social networks as robustly as happiness. Happiness appears to love company more so than misery. . .
. . . the researchers found that when an individual becomes happy, a friend living within a mile experiences a 25 percent increased chance of becoming happy. A co-resident spouse experiences an 8 percent increased chance, siblings living within one mile have a 14 percent increased chance, and for next door neighbors, 34 percent.
But the real surprise came with indirect relationships. Again, while an individual becoming happy increases his friend’s chances, a friend of that friend experiences a nearly 10 percent chance of increased happiness, and a friend of *that* friend has a 5.6 percent increased chanceâ€”a three-degree cascade. “

DCF Crew Member Katy Stewart and her husband, Elan and son, Drake are featured in today’s Conta Costa Times! They are innkeepers at the East Brother Light Station on East Brother Island near Richmond – how cool is that? The CC TImes reports that they are relinquishing their posts soon. Hopefully, they’ll be closer to their DCF family – that’s a heck of a commute for the DCF Girls class, Katy!.
