CU Boulder Gauntlet Night (Fall 2009) - Thursday 5PM
« on: October 05, 2009, 08:08:31 PM »
-edit- Changed time to 5PM as noone could come at 4!
What: Gauntlet Nights
When: Every Thursday at 5 PM
Where: Meet at the CU Engineering Center courtyard directly adjacent to Regent Drive.

In an effort to improve mine and other traceurs fitness level, I'm going to resurrect the CU gauntlet night. For those of you who don't know what a Gauntlet is, read here: http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/1130/2/.

The parkour community as a whole is greatly unprepared from a physical fitness standpoint, and we all need to get out and work harder to become strong enough to endure the stresses that parkour puts on our bodies.

I strongly encourage everyone to attend these Gauntlets if they can. Or start up your own Gauntlet night in your area.

I hope that people will join me in these greatly beneficial and fun workouts.

PS: Thanks to Ryan for the gauntlet and the plagiarized post!

I think it is great that you are doing the CU gauntlet.  I am afraid that I cannot get there so early on Thursday.  Have you considered doing it on the weekends?

unfortunately (and correct me if this is wrong, jim), Jim teaches on the weekends at Boulder Crossfit. If you want to do some weekend training those classes might be your best bet

I do the Wednesday classes at Boulder Crossfit actually.  I am trying to make time for runs on the weekend, however I don't know the Gauntlet route at CU.  I usually just end up running around and playing with my kids.  :)

After school Parkour class at the school I teach at begins this week on....you guessed it...Thursday.  :-\

I'm going to have to reevaluate my schedule, or just turn this over to someone else to run.
I think I overestimated my amount of free time with baby on the way!

Let's figure something out for next semester. I think I'm going to start doing more indoor workouts later in the evening. If you want to go to cats gym sometime, hit me up. I know baby's on the way, so it's up to you. A few of us are (hopefully) going this thursday at 830 for open gym.
