12/30 Whole Life Wednesday
We are participating in the 2016 New Year Whole Life Challenge which starts Jan 16. The WLC is a powerful lifestyle challenge that will impact your life in ways you can't even imagine yet. Watch this video of Michael Stanwyck and Andy Petranek, creators of the WLC, discussing the very first worldwide WLC. They are owners of CrossFit LA in California and started the WLC as an in-gym lifestyle challenge. They saw how successful is was and turned it into a world-wide phenomenon.

A 5000m row is definitely a rowing endurance test piece, comparable to a 5K run. However, long rows, in the 5k range have an important history in the sport of rowing. They are the distances of the Fall regattas, which are known as Head Races, and all Head Races are at least 3 miles. The most famous Head Race in the US is the Head of the Charles in Cambridge, MA. The Head of the Charles is 4,800m and the best times are sub 20 minutes for men and sub 22 minutes for women. How fast will you row today?
