You’ve probably lost some sleep the past couple of days because you found out Invictus is closed on July 4th and you won’t know what to do with yourself if you can’t workout.
Well I have good news for you – even though we won’t be open, there are still plenty of things to do to stay active. Here’s one great option that we are encouraging all of our members to pursue….
Members of the Invictus Endurance group will be running in the Coronado Independence Day 15k run or 5k run/walk – there’s something for everyone in the family. If you want something a little bit longer – give the 15k a shot, if you want to bring the entire family – do the 5k run/walk.
“But I have only done Crossfit for my training – can I even make 15K distance?”
The answer is yes!!!! We train you for general physical preparedness – to move large loads, long distances quickly, which means if something like this comes up you ought to be able to go out and do it.
We don’t program many long endurance efforts at the gym because nobody wants to run around the block that many times, but that doesn’t mean we don’t encourage you to do them every now and again. Running long distances is essential to being a well-rounded athlete, so why not test yourself and make this a tradition and a healthy way to start your holiday before you head out for your typical 4th of July BBQ and fireworks.
What – Coronado Independence Day 15k run or 5k walk
When – July 4th, 7am
Where – Tidelands Park, Coronado – next to the Coronado Bay Bride
Who – Invictus Endurance members and anyone else that cares to join us (wear Invictus green please)
Please register for this event on your own, either ahead of time or the morning of the event.
Last but not least – Invictus Endurance meets Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at San Diego High School track, we run intervals, short and long. All are welcomed to attend – the first time you attend is on us – that means FREE!!! We have a great group that supports and encourages each other as we prepare for endurance events and improve our overall conditioning.
