Fran

So guess who had a great PR on her Fran time? This girl!

They say if you get “Fran” done RX’d in under ten minutes you’re considered elite. The last time I did “Fran” RX’d I finished in 9:16. I was so freaking stoked about it when it happened too. Well last night I had the opportunity to do it again. Holy crap, I finished it RX’d in 6:42. That’s like a two and a half minute PR, which is HUGE considering most people PR on “Fran” by a few seconds. I’m stoked.  I mean, really really stoked. This hard work and clean eating is paying off. I’m really proud of myself for not letting all this overtime I’ve been doing interfere with my training and clean eating. I’ve taken up this new attitude of ‘when the world pushes me, I push back harder’ and man I’m feeling pretty great about it.

Working on gymnastics the other day. Not the most beautiful, but hey it was my few attempts at it. I’m pretty excited, considering our gym has never delved around with gymnastics too much - I’m determined to be the one to master it though.

Oh hello new crossfit hephzibah shirt! So proud to represent.

Any hoo, yesterday was my first day back at the gym since finding out I passed my level 1…and to make the day even better I PR’d on Overhead Squat. Went from 95 lbs. to 120 lbs.! Next goal is to hit body weight.

Messing around with Squat Cleans. This is a 5 lbs. PR, my last one was 145 lbs. back at Integrity’s Revenge in October, and I actually failed my first attempt at it. This is 150 lbs, and I do it with ease. If I can remember to allow my hip to open up all the way a the top before squatting I could probably get 160 lbs. I stopped at the weight, mostly because we did the workout “Running Cindy” already and I didn’t want to push my luck.

Well, I don’t think it’s fair to only post videos of me at my best. So here is one we shot about a week ago working on the snatch. I was not feeling it at all that day. You can tell because I’ve lost all intensity. My form it off pretty bad, especially in the set up. Since then though, it has been corrected (at the level 1 seminar). Point is, you have good days and bad days, and you can tell I was having a bad day haha. I think this weight was either 65 lbs. or 75 lbs.

I PASSED!

I’m a crossfit level 1 trainer now! I’ll get my certificate in 4 - 6 weeks. So stoked!!!!

Well, here is the full class I was with over the weekend. I attended a Level 1 seminar at Crossfit Paragon in Chamblee, GA.

I had a BLAST. Didn’t really make a lot of friends…I just really didn’t click well with the girls there. I could talk to the guys with ease though. Am I upset about that, Heck no. I was there to learn, and the staff and instructors we had were amazing. I soaked in as much knowledge as I could. I should know in about five days if I passed my test or not.

Been really busy lately, and I have been exercising. Trust me, my soreness level is at an all-time high right now. I’ll try to update tonight or tomorrow.
