We are one week away from Memorial Day Murph. It all kicks off next Monday with heats beginning at 9 AM, 9:45 AM, and 10:30 AM. Each heat will begin with approximately 15 minutes of warmup and discussion of scaled options. Sign Up sheets are available on the front desk to reserve your spot. All other regularly scheduled classes and programs are canceled for Memorial Day.
Motivation is a funny thing. It can be sparked by something as simple as an image and extinguished just as quickly by the smallest setback. Motivation can move us to super human feats of performance but often leaves us when we need it the most. Lately I have been troubled by those that come into the gym motivated for a new start. They are willing to do anything and immediately start getting results. A few weeks in however, their attendance becomes less regular. We reach out to see if we can help them re-establish consistency. If we aren't successful, their progress slows and sometimes we lose them for good. It isn't because it wasn't working, but rather, their motivation had fizzled out.
If you haven't already, go ahead and mark your calendars for Monday, May 29th. Yes, that is Memorial Day and yes, we will be completing Memorial Day Murph. Murph is a Hero Workout named for Lt. Michael Murphy who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. CrossFit gyms all over the US complete this workout on Memorial Day in his honor and in honor of all the men and women in the armed services. At Catacombs, we use this occasion to come together and open our doors to our local fire and police departments as well as the entire community. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us on this day and we will offer workout options for anyone desiring to participate.
Thanks to all of you who came out for our Trails 2000 trail work night last night. We had a great crew of volunteers and everyone worked hard and had fun. Thanks also to Trails 2000 for all the awesome work they do for our community. Durango would not be as special of a place were it not for Trails 2000. We are proud to be a partner and have the opportunity to give back in this way.
