Overcome

April 21, 2012



Today was my kind of workout. Still loving Saturday mornings at the box, and its so nice that even since the opens have wrapped up there are quite a few people still going. I am back to doing the WOD that I missed on Thursdays since thats my skill session day, on Saturday mornings. Whats nice about that (and different from my weekly routine) is that there are already times and weights on the board from my fellow CFWers. On any given day I am there at 5:30am, therefor we are the first times/weights to get listed. Not that I am "competing" with those who are on the board... or should really focus on that number as long as I am giving it my all... but its nice to have a goal to shoot for and see what others who share my same skill set can do.

I honestly debated a skill session after knowing what I saw on Thursday night. I watched a few people complete it while I was skilling... and saw others comments about it on the website. It was going to be a tough one. BUT... I quickly reminded myself that I was in this for a reason and what my goals are. I was going to do it and I was going to kick ass at it! Thats all there was to it.

Hubs and our newest (as of Saturday) CFWer MK was there for the ride!! We were about to endure "Edit" and we were all going to give it everything we could! Three, two, one... GO and we were off. The skill session that M held with us before the WOD worked wonders. He really took the time to breakdown the med ball clean and the weighed overhead lunge to assure that we are loading the proper muscles and not burn out our quads before we had time to get into the second round. It worked wonders. I really focused on loading my hamstrings properly in the cleans, taking long strides in the lunges and being as quick as I could off the box on the box jumps. I felt as light as a feather on them for all 5 rounds and I am pretty sure its because my quads didnt turn to junk after all the cleans and lunges between them. When I was done I cheered on MK and Hubs till they finished and we all collapsed in a pool of sweat!

Good Times!! I love me a Saturday at CFW!!
