It’s short interval day at The Black Box with Coach Heidi and she is ready to go Tabata with her runners! Think 20 seconds of sprints and 10 seconds of recovery! This is a great workout to practice getting through oxygen debt–you know the same kind of oxygen debt that you experience in your met-cons! Wanna be better at CrossFit? Redundant question with an easy answer! So, get to 28th street at 6, 7, or 8am and Heidi will take care of the rest! Free for all members, $10 for non-members.

    Hey people, if you’re free tonight the soup kitchen I help out at has a sudden shortage on volunteers (their regular post to NYCares didn’t go up). It’s called Monday Night Hospitality, it’s at 79th and Lex at All Souls church, and the orientation is at 6:30pm tonight. I’ll be there just a little later (7), since I wash the dishes, but would love to see you there. Thanks!
