"Elizabeth"

December 3, 2011

Oh Saturday, how do I love the... let me count the ways.

ONE: I get to sleep past 4:45am.
TWO: I get to have a cup of coffee before the gym.
THREE: I get to go to the gym with Hubs
FOUR: I know in advance what my make-up workout is
FIVE: Lots of our CrossFit Family goes to gym at the same time
SIX: We can take our time
SEVEN: We have people cheering each other on during their WOD's
EIGHT: We can enjoy each other's successes and PR's
NINE: We usually get BOTH our coaches that we love!
TEN: Yummy yummy breakfast!!

Is that good enough? Do I need to go on? Nah, you get the point. I love my Saturday morning time at CrossFit Wachusett! Its so nice to be there with everyone. I dont get that often in the AM. Its nice to put faces to some of the new names I have started to see on the board. It is great to cheer on others and have them cheer me on while WODing. Its nice to catch up and see how others have reached goals and milestones and help when others are struggling. Yes, I am still totally hooked, totally obsessed... and totally happy.

I was not feeling well when we got to the gym this morning. I was up off an on all night and my stomach was not happy with me. I think some of it might have been the 150 GHD situps the day before... but I also didnt feel good. I knew it was going to be a struggle, but I was going, and I was going to do my makeup WOD that I missed on Thursday. Hubs was also going to make up the same WOD. We dont get to workout together often, in fact I thik this was one of the first times in a long time.

We faced "Elizabeth" today. It was a tough one, but it felt really good. While I was working I just kept pushing and driving. Hubs was right next to me working just as hard. I used the small blue band for the dips which was a little back track from the last time I did them. After that time K and I talked, I had used the small red band but she noticed that I wasnt getting the full range of motion because I was struggling. So this time I decided to up the band to assure proper form. Not looking at it as a setback at all. It felt better to do it correct than it would be to do it half assed. 

When we were done with the WOD we cheered M on while he did "Hansen." At the same time I worked on my push press, which was strength for the day. I successfully PRed with 105lbs for 5 reps! Its amazing how much energy there is at CFW on a full house Saturday morning!!
