Workout of the Day (WOD)

Tuesday 11/19/13 Apple Cup Time!!!!!

This Fall we are celebrating a century old tradition and beloved American sport – FOOTBALL! Because we’re slightly biased towards Washington teams, I asked members of the gym which Washington Team was the best and "wow" things got heated.  So what better way to have fun with this than to have our 2nd Annual CrossFit Interbay Apple Cup. 

The CrossFit Interbay Apple Cup will be this Sunday.  The WOD won't be announced until a few days before.  I will decide how many people will be on each team after we get an idea how many people want to participate.  The team WOD will be performed Sunday at 1pm.  The WOD will be used to determine a point spread on the football game.  What's at stake?  The winning team will get to hang their flag in the gym for the next year until the 2014 Apple Cup.  Do you want to keep the WSU flag up another year or put a UW one up there?

Some rules will need to be established.

  1. You must have attended either Washington State or University of Washington to participate in the WOD. 
  2. You can pick a team and cheer for it no matter where you went :-)

I was having trouble coming up with more rules so Coach Geoff suggested a couple of the following.  I think he may be biased.

  1. Your team must start with 15 burpees for each loss you have this season.
  2. Take 1 minute off your team's time for each Rose Bowl win your college team has.
  3. or, make it academic:  Teams get an extra minute of rest for every Rhodes Scholar your school has.

Again, I think Coach Geoff is biased.  If you have some rules to suggest post them in comments or email them to me -

There is a sign up on the white board in the gym.  Signing up doesn't mean you have to compete in the WOD.  Let's get an idea of what side you're on, Cougs or UW.  Then from that list we can help determine who wants to compete, how to make up teams and what's a fair fun team wod.  Coach Valery is heading up the UW team and Coach Beth is heading up the WSU team.

Post in comments which team you support, your feedback and possible rules.
