06-07-09 Sunday Week 17

Lunchtime wod at the CF R&E Cert with Ben K. and other super-cool dude...

Super sore today. Last night at dinner I sported what I like to call the CrossFit waddle to dinner. My hammies are slightly past the point of aggravation, darn near cantankerous and I've discoverd that rippage doesn't only occur on hands and wrists... toes, too! Oh yeah. I have a ripped toe (nowhere near as fun as Rippetoe ::: HA! :::) I'm sure B-Mack and Ben think I am such a buttercup for repeatedly holding up my foot to them and making them inspect my blisters and torn toe... What a pansy!!!

Training Log
12 Noon
"Nasty Girls"
3 rounds for time:
50 Air Squats
10 Hang Power Cleans (95 lbs)
7 Muscle-Ups

Time -- 10:21 (PR by 22 seconds)

It's always hard for me to really put out on the 3rd day in a cycle. When I wod, I really try to go all out so by day 3 in a row, I don't have much left in the tank. Had so much fun in Baltimore, didn't think I wanted to come home. But now that I am here I am glad. Can't wait for the next one.

Shana, I stumbled on your blog a few days ago while trying to find info on the CF Games. I got hooked, had to read the whole thing, to the end(so far), I have to tell you how inspiring it is, I admire your determination. I am currently serving overseas, and have been doing CF for about 1 year. However I never really took it as seriously as I should have, until now, now when I get to the Gym(which is more often now)I try to emulate the focus and drive that you have shown. Thank you. Ill be cheering for you. Matt.

Matt, thanks so much! I am glad you find me inspiring... I have to wonder if you'd feel differently if you hear how I grumble and groan before every workout!

I love it when folks say hello, and am flattered - that is a LOT of reading! HAHA!

Thanks for your nice words and your service. You are much appreciated!

That is so great that you got to intern at a cert! I'm only a little (lot) jealous. I so want to be in Aromas to cheer you on. I remember back when you were trying to coach me to my first kipping pull-up. You're an amazing coach and an incredible athlete.

Shana please keep me posted when a running cert in FL comes up, I can not wait to have you coach me again! Congrats on getting your ticket, I am so excited for you! PS loved sporting my "Good Looking Badass" tank on my first day at Crossfit St Pete, thank you!
