So I’ve been on the verge of posting many times lately, but it seems like I just haven’t known where to start. I decided to just post what’s on my mind today and a little bit about the progress I’ve made lately.
First of all, I am proud to say that I have “gotten” kipping pull-ups finally. I “celebrated” this week with good ole’ Cindy. Unfortunately, my hands are torn so badly that I’m not sure I can grip a bar without cringing. Regardless, I am SO happy I can say goodbye to those pesky bands! Now only heavy snatches and muscle ups seem to stand in my way of doing any workout RX :)
I will say that I have become aware of my physical progress, as well. Although the number on the scale stays fairly consistent, I have DEFINITELY toned up and I have real muscles! Before CrossFit, I was heavy cardio. But just in the 5 1/2 months (wow time flies!) I’ve been crossfitting, I have seen amazing results. I think the most motivating factor is that ITS FUN! Even when I feel like I’m going to die (usually from heat stroke – I live in Texas and our box is like an oven on top of 100 degree weather), I still push through due to the overwhelming support of my coaches and fellow members! It really is like one big family.
Like I said before, I don’t really have any format for this post. I guess I just wanted to brag about my pull-ups. I mean I could already do strict, but only one or two at a time, and now that I have the kip it is feasible to do them in WODs. Oh yeah, another surprise to me is that I did 5×3 rounds of 90lbs on push press yesterday. Yay!
