In Honor of Alisa – Barbells for Boobs – Wednesday, October 29

Posted 17 Oct 2014 in WODS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s that time of year again. Where CrossFitters around the world gather at their local box and pay tribute to the women and men who have fought or are currently fighting Breast Cancer. October is national Breast Cancer awareness and the CrossFit Community never disappoints when coming together for an amazing cause.

CrossFit Fort Bragg would like to recognize a personal friend who is currently going through this battle.

Thirty two year old Air Force wife, teacher and proud mother of two, Alisa Metzger was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2014.
Her then 8 month old son Enzo, and 6 yr old daughter Vivian were attending school in Minot, ND. Alisa had just stopped work at the local Montessori school. Alisa discovered a lump in her breast while nursing. She felt it wasn’t alarming as a nursing mom gets lumps from time to time.  In February  she was advised to use warm and cool compresses and use a breast pump.The advice nurse told her repeatedly she was experiencing a clogged duct from breastfeeding.
Alisa was not convinced, after sharing her family history of breast cancer, and results from the BRAC testing done in January 2014 she was seen for an appointment.
The doctor did a breast exam and assured her young women have very dense, fibrous tissue and we will just do an ultra sound to see that the tissue looks “normal”. An ultra sound image proved thing to be not so “normal”. The following month a biopsy was done. The week after her 31st birthday her and her husband decide to visit with a plastic surgeon her PCM referred her to, and decided prophylactic double mastectomy was her best choice.
Instead, the surgeon came into the room and began talking about MRI’S and surgery before the end of the month. Holding baby Enzo, Alisa questioned “What are you talking about I’m here to talk about a profalactic mastectomy?”
“I am so sorry, I thought your PCM had discussed your condition with you. You have invasive ductal carcinoma would you like me to give you and your husband a moment in private?”
Alisa and her family’s life changed forever and the breast cancer journey began.

Alisa and her family began care at Walter Reed’s John P. Murtha Cancer Center in June 2014. It was there that physicians discovered Alisa’s cancer had spread to her right axillary lymph nodes. With a sizable tumor in her right breast and lymph node involvement she was diagnosed as Stage IIIa breast cancer with estrogen positive receptors. The surgery was pushed back to give chemotherapy an oppurtunity to shrink the cancer. She has just finished her last Chemotherapy treatment on October 16th, and is currently healing, recovering, and preparing for her double mastectomy in November.

After recovery from her surgery she will go on to receive radiation in hopes of eliminating the lingering cancer cells in the lymph node area. The Air Force has just approved her husband’s move and they are excited to finally be together again after a four month separation, as she battle’s cancer. Vivian is transitioning well at her new school in Virginia, and Enzo has just celebrated his first steps, followed by his first birthday. It’s a very big year for everyone. Alisa continues to seek and feel God’s presence in her life daily. She has found a new meaning to life. She treasures relationships and special moments she has with her children and family. She never wishes for a day to pass or a week to be over. Without words she teaches people that watch her to value and treasure the simple things in life.

Every day, one less woman, one less man, one less athlete is amongst us. Our goal is indeed a lofty one,we aim to achieve the unachievable; To ensure that everyone gets access to detection services. Together, with one unified voice, we can make a difference.

Warm-Ups, Flexibility and the Olympic Lifter

Posted 08 Oct 2014 in WODS

The CrossFit Journal is a great resource for any and all CrossFit needs/questions etc. From zone diet information to mobility, we as CrossFitters have access to some amazing information from the best of the best resources. I particularly enjoyed this article and wanted to share it with our members and guests. Please click on the link below to read the full PDF. Have a great Wednesday and Happy CrossFitting!

“Warming up and stretching are vital to long-term progress in strength training, and especially so in the two Olympic lifts because they require such a high degree of athleticism. Flexibility is a key factor for success in the sport, so you absolutely must spend time working on that attribute by making stretching a part of every training session.”

Train with Integrity

Posted 07 Oct 2014 in WODS

What does that look like? A great article from Tabata Times. CLICK HERE to read the article.

 

“It means pushing yourself in the gym, leaving your ego at the door, asking for help, and putting your pride aside.”

Are you asking the best of yourself in training? Are you pursuing excellence? Are you throwing a weight around with terrible form and counting that as a rep? Are you selling yourself short, or are you challenging yourself?

“31 Heros” WOD – This Saturday, August 9

Posted 08 Aug 2014 in WODS

The WOD

31Heroes – CrossFit Fort Bragg – Saturday, August 9, 2014.

“31Heroes”

AMRAP 31 minutes (As Many Reps As Possible)
8 Thrusters (155/105#)
6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
11 Box Jumps (30/24″)

This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

Score is your total # of reps

This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team.  In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.
