Remember we are closed this weekend, Fri, Sat, & Sun while we all attend the Regional CrossFit Games qualifying in Jacksonville.

Either the scientists or those who report science news are stunned and don't know what to make of these two data points: The upper oceans are getting warmer, and the oceans are absorbing less CO2 than formerly.  If they ever opened a warm Coca-Cola they would know the answer: warm water holds less CO2 in solution than cold water.  This phenomenon is due to the solubility curve of CO2 in water.  A warming ocean absorbs less CO2 from the atmosphere, and, in fact, a great deal of CO2 in the ocean escapes to the atmosphere as the ocean warms.  The same is true for other gases, such as oxygen, which is why the great fisheries of the world are in colder waters.  The most logical explanation for all this is that rising CO2 levels are an effect of global warming, rather than a cause.  See Acquittal of Carbon Dioxide, by Jeff Glassman

    Don’t forget your rope climbing pants/socks tonight!
    Also, start planning your week around the paleo lectures next week!

    Just a note to encourage anyone that is on the fence to participate in the Paleo challenge. You will feel so much better in so many ways. I cleaned up my diet a bit over the past couple of days by eating less fruit as a carb source and fewer nuts as a fat source. I am getting more of my carbs from veggies and more of my fats from avacado and olive oil, and I feel much better already. The biggest change is that I don’t get as sore and I recover more quickly. Plus, you will have the benefit of lectures from a team of people that know a great deal on these subjects. Take advantage of the great resources we have at CFATL!

    I must have been typing my message just as you were typing your message to B. I was really just directing that to anyone that’s debating whether or not they will participate. Travel does make things tough, but I bet there are lots of folks at the gym that can help you find ways to make it workable. When have you been working out? Since I’m not too busy at work right now, I’ve been going during open gym at 4. Hope to see you soon!! Congrats on all your hard work and keep it up!

    I have become part of the morning crew.. usually 6 or 7am workouts .. This past week though I am off so I have been strolling in at 9am- then hitting the pool here in my neighborhood. I may have to participate in your FRAN off celebration .. I just will need to scale the pull ups- still can’t get myself up and over that damn bar !
