Crossfittin'

Happy Monday everyone! 
Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day and are feeling alright today. ;)

For the first time in a long time, I'm feeling great after St. Pat's. I only ended up having one beer yesterday and that was more to celebrate my Open WOD 13.2 do-over success! 


I'd done 13.2 on Friday morning and ended up being pretty disappointed in my performance, completing only 6 full rounds (or 180 reps). I couldn't stop thinking about how I coulda, woulda, shoulda done better, so Sunday morning I gave it another go. Thankfully, it ended up being worth it! I added 43 extra reps, bringing my total up to 223 reps (or 7 full rounds plus 5 shoulder-to-overheads and 8 deadlifts)! :)

Obviously I'm nowhere near close to ever making it to Regionals, but that doesn't matter to me. I just want to push myself to do the best that I can. And, so far, I'm very happy with my personal performances!


Last month was my Crossfit one year anniversary and it is crazy to think about how much I've learned this past year; how well I've improved in this short of a time span.

And it is also crazy to think about how far I still have to go.

But that is the best part - knowing that I will again improve so much this year. And by this time next year, I will be even stronger, faster, and better!

All true, but especially #4. On Sunday, only one other friend and I were redoing the WOD. Yet a handful of other members (and my babe!!) came to watch us get at it. So much fun having them there and cheering us on - such a great community!

  1. It's so cool to see your progress over the year! Congrats! I still want to try it sometime... just so hard to fit in when running is my first love. :)

    1. Thank you! :)

      I know what you mean - hard to turn your back on your favorite sport! Especially when you've been doing some fantastic footwork in all your recent races!!

      After a long winter, I've been trying to get back to running for an upcoming marathon relay race, but its proving difficult to fit it in with my Crossfit, which is my priority.
