Special Event – Fabletics HIIT

Week of January 30 – February 5, 2023

Hello Team,

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. This upcoming week we are establishing a new schedule for our Wednesday morning runs. Please review the schedule.

We are starting our Wednesday morning runs at 5:30 am so you will all have enough time to complete the workout and won’t feel rushed on cutting the workout short. I also moved the conditioning strength session for Wednesday for this week only as I will be taking the day off today from coaching.

Test Week

This week we are going to be testing you on all three disciplines. It is very important that you are fully rested into going each training session. make sure you hydrate, get enough rest the day prior and do not drink coffee two hours prior onto taking the test. Suck it up butter cup! If you don’t have enough rest and don’t follow the protocol, you won’t have a good result. Then I am going to hear you give me all the excuses in the world and I am going to roll my eyes and say… you did this to yourself. So make sure you listen and follow the guidelines.

Fabletics – Sunday at 10 am

CFL Tri Club Holiday Party – Dec 18, 2022 – 5:00 pm – 7 pm

CFL Tri Club / Tri Peak Athlete Warriors

It is time to show off your culinary streak by whipping up some family delicacy, or something holiday themed. It’s a laid back contest where everyone is the judge.

Address: 904 Spring Park Loop, Celebration, FL

There will be three categories of prizes – 

  1. Most Creative/Best Holiday Theme
  2. Best Tasting Food or Drink
  3. Best Tasting Dessert

We have hosted this party in the past, and had some great entries, like “Dasher’s Disaster”, meatloaf shaped like a reindeer that had been run over by a Jeep, or “Whoa, Whoa, WHOA!”, a complete gingerbread house with Santa and his reindeer piled up on the front lawn. 

You are not required to bring a homemade dish, and don’t worry, if you just want to bring something store bought; that’s fine too.

For you competitors, here are a few hints – 

  1. Make your dish easy to eat. Finger foods works well, or something that is easy to divide up.
  2. Make enough food, but smaller portions, I’m sure there will be a lot to eat.
  3. Bring what you need to serve your food, and serving utensils. 
  4. This is one party where arriving early is preferable. Food should be presented and ready to eat at 5:30, as judging will commence at that time.
  5. Seconds and thirds are encouraged, especially when trying to decide on who to vote for but let everyone get a taste…no fair trying to eat all of the competition.

Here is a hint for the more competitive in the bunch: Making it “showy” with a cute name – it tends to influence the judges. 🙂

There will be trivia awards too!!!

Post Race Fueling

As we are aware leading into our races, we are burning a ton of calories and crushing our workouts. We fuel our bodies for our performances; however, when our race is over… many of you stop training completely… it is important to recover at the same time we need to remain active and fuel for recovery. Allow yourself a cheat meal the day after the race and please fuel for proper healing. If poor choices are made, you will have unnecessary weight gain and you will lose fitness. If you need guidance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Holiday Party – December 18

Show off your cooking skills and bring a dish. Best dish will win a prize! Join us on December 18 at Risa and Rob’s Home for our Annual Holiday Party! In addition, we will be doing a white elephant exchange; therefore, please bring a gift no more than 25 dollars.

Address: 904 Spring Park Loop, Celebration

Time: 5 pm – 8 pm
