A very timely “primal” bar from Mark Sisson’s Daily Apple:

“. . .So with that, we went to our unofficial Mark’s Daily Apple kitchen to put it to the test! There were a couple of missteps (and even one small toasting incident that could have constituted a fire!) but we think we’ve finally nailed it.

The following is the new and improved official Mark’s Daily Apple Primal Energy Bar: . . .”

Ice Fishing Tourney #2 at CrossFit One World January 31st!

(The newer model Concept II rowing machines have a “Fish Game” on them, and apparently it is a blast to play).

Last time we had a single DCFer in attendance, and he reported a smashing good time. This time it would be great to have a whole contingent of DCFers go (then we can carpool with a DD).

From Freddy: “Buy in for the tournament is $10. Winner takes the pot (minus 10% awarded to the highest scorer of the tournament).

Sign-ups start at 6:00 pm. Brackets start forming at 6:45 pm. The single elimination tournament begins at 7:00 pm. There will be a jumper for kids and a keg of beer for the adults. We request everyone bring something simple for a potluck dinner.

Come out for a good time even if you choose not to go fishing!”

    I saw the new gym yesterday for the first time and I was speechless, kudos to Rob, Jeremy and Craig, you guys came a long way from the days in the park, I think we have one of the coolest gym out there. I’m excited for the new year, we are going to have some serious fun in our new home.

    You’re right, Luca. We do have the coolest gym around. Maybe we should rename the gym “Funtime Gym”.

    Yes, DCF is cool, but you can do CrossFit anywhere! If you can’t make it in, then make something up at home or at the hotel.

    For me today: 8 x 75m hill sprints. Walk back.

  • luca z.

    Clever Mark, as usual, that’s my friend’s gym in Italy.

  • Craig

    Of course, in Italy, it’s pronounced: “foon-team-aye” gym.

  • RUINER

    I remember this WOD….and I remember the pushups sucking the light from my soul. The first 800 is cake, the first hundred pushups were as hard as any pushups.

    The real shitter is the 400 after the pushups!!! Trying to run with all that blood in your shoulders is probably as funny to watch as it is painful and akward to do.

    Have fun guys. :- P

  • RUINER

    BTW…

    Again Faster has a nice article up today.

  • Jasmine

    Today was the first day I felt back on my game after begin sick for a couple weeks. It feels so good to have energy back! Great workout today… I enjoyed a bit more running than usual and our course is so nice! I was happy with a 20 min and something time.

  • Mark L.

    Nice work, Mountain! Adrock and I have the same birthday, by the way (but he’s a couple years older).
    I, too, love the new 400m course, Jasmine. Best of all, there’s no way to cheat it without everyone seeing. =)
    Looking forward to this weekend!

  • RUINER

    This paleo thing is killing me. Carb withdrawls are insane. All I want right now is a snickers bar and a bag of Cheetos. How long do the withdrawls last???

  • Rodil

    Mike – be sure you’re eating enough Paleo-friendly food and not shorting yourself on calories. If you’re really craving something sweet, you might try a little fruit or sweet potatoes (starchy but very nutritious).

    You might want to look up the article “Getting off the crack” on the CF HQ website if you haven’t already read it. It describes Nicole Caroll’s experience starting the Zone diet.
