“Be unrelenting. If you don’t believe, then who will.”-Kara Goucher
Training motto-“It’s Me against Myself!”
I am finding out how mentally prepared one must be to take on a goal! Having young girls, a full-time job, and training is mentally and physically draining. Tonight, I was ready to tap out, then decided to at least do 10 minutes if something.
So, here it is…
50 air squats
Yea, I know… It’s not much, but I was ready to quit. Instead, I chose to get a workout in! I have found that I really need to work on my hip mobility! So now in stretching!
See y’all tomorrow!
About 30 minutes…
That’s what I told my husband as I left the house for day 2 of training. His response… “Make it 28 😜”!
Well, as I came to the end if my WOD, I saw “26:00” on the clock…. Hey, maybe I can do it in 28. It’s amazing what your body can do with a lil mental motivation!
My WOD tonight was:
With rest between each as long as it took to run the previous distance.
Cash out: 30 Burpees
Let me just say… Intervals SUCK!
With that said, I did not want to do this tonight. AND, it’s only day 2! Mentally and physically I was drained today, but there is something I want more. Something I want more than a bad day at work, and that’s what I’m working toward! I must keep my mind on the goal!
Whatever you are working towards, we all have bad days! I believe in you and all you have to do is move forward!
Eat clean! Be healthy! Work hard!
I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
I am speechless!
Let me start by saying, I have been doing CF for less than a year. I LOVE it. It is my new hobby. If I could work there…. I would! In a heartbeat!!!
So yesterday, in anticipation of 13.4, I was ready for anything. I have done my best on all the Open WODs thus far and continue to be overly excited about each one. Until I heard what 13.4 consisted of!!! Or the weight rather. You see, I few months ago I found my 1 rep max to be 85#. To pop out several 95#??? Undoable in my mind. But, not in my husband nor my friends at my box! My husband encouraged me all day. I walked in tonight and everyone said, “You got this!” I told one trainer the above and he said, it was my one rep max until tonight. Little did I know they were all correct! Busted out 9 C&J’s at 95#!! It felt amazing. Not only to be able to bust out the workout, but to have my friends cheering me on! It was awesome! Thank you to everyone!!!
CrossFit is awesome! I love it! I’m addicted and I drank the Kool-aid!
Have a great workout and a great weekend!
Stay active! Stay strong! Eat clean!
13.3 is in the books!
I gave it my all just hoping to get to the double-unders.
The verdict… 156 reps! I accomplished 6 DUs! Something I’ve not done in a WOD before! The priceless moment was the fact that my friends were coaching me throughout and up to the last minute when I didn’t think I had any time left. I started to do a single then a double, and kept going til I didn’t know up from down. This was the hardest I’ve pushed my body since 13.2 (bwahahaha ha)!
It really is an amazing feeling to have such support in our box!
Still doing the whole life challenge… We have just a few more weeks! It has become a lifestyle for me and I am enjoying the fruits of my labor ;-)!
Taking one day at a time and enjoying every moment!
Peace out… See you at the Box!
Yes, you could say I am addicted. I have found a new hobby. I used to love the flagline. It was my life 7 days a week. I loved performing and seeing what I could do. Now, I found something I can carry over to my children long term.
Some say that I am in the “honeymoon” phase of Crossfit, i.e. my first year. Well, I beg to differ on that theory. With so many variations and so many opportunities for growth, I don’t see the “honeymoon” phase being over anytime soon.
Unless my name is Lindsey Valenzuela, then I have work to do!
This was a whirlwind weekend for me so I will do the best that I can to recap it all adequately. Since this is a super lengthy post with...
Oh my goodness, I have butterflies. I keep refreshing my email. anxiety.
“Why?”, you ask. (Well, nobody is asking.)
I’m waiting to hear if my boy made the all star team for Little League. So ridiculous how I am feeling.
