Remember the post where I mentioned my #GetAfterIt CrossFit goals?
Back Squats & Deadlifts over 200 lbs & Pull Ups & Hand Stand Push Ups?!
Well, I got the Deadlift goal 3 days after I posted my video (205lbs).
I’m happy (more like ecstatic) to tell you guys that in the last 24 hours I achieved the other 2 goals!
On Thursday night I was finally able to string together multiple kipping pull ups. I did a set of 5, 7, and then 6 more.
Last night was also special to me because I was able to bring a bunch of girlfriends to Elevated CrossFit to do a workout with me.
Megan, Breeann, Janae and I were on a team together and tackled a BEAST of a WOD! (Stephanie was also there – but left before pictures! She teamed up with her hubby, Jake, Chris & his friend, Chris – they KILLED it in 25 minutes!! Holly teamed up with her hubby, Jorge, and Trent and… um… I don’t remember. LOL. #blondemoment)
In teams of 4 (with only 2 people working at a time)
complete the following:
300 pull ups
400 push ups
500 sit ups
We finished in 32:00! Which was amazing! Tyson wanted to cut us off at 30 minutes, but Janae convinced him to let us finish. (I would have been happy to stop – I had also done the workout at 6pm with Jen, Van, and Michelle – I was exhausted… but really, if Tyson had made us stop, I would have been irritated. ha!)
I finally got Handstand Push Ups!
(they were kipped and I got 3 of them!)
I am SO excited. I was just goofin’ around after the WOD and thought to myself, “Yikes, I gotta work on HSPU, that’s one my goals for the year!!”
So I set up an ab mat and got into position for one and was superclose to getting to full extension, but I had pushed too far away from the wall. But I tried it again, and it felt effortless. I sat (stayed?) in the handstand position and called out to everyone “DID YOU JUST SEE THAT?! I just did a freakin’ handstand push up!!!” Tyson retorted, “Yeah? Let’s see another one, then”. So I dropped back down and got another one! Then the guys made some goofy comment and I started laughing and lost my position. I was able to get one more after that, and probably could have gotten more… ((the first picture in the post is right after I got my HSPU, I had to snap a mirror pic, I was just SO excited! and if my face looks a little red, it’s because I got nailed right in the face with a nerf ball when we played dodgeball after the WOD, thanks Coach!))
this was our “tough chick” picture
Tonight’s WOD was
Teams of 2 – 5 rounds of
50m partner carry (each)
20 Med Ball Tosses (each)
I teamed up with Cayson (since we are similar size) and Janae & Courtney teamed up, and Rachelle and Sarah teamed up.
I had SO much fun cheering them on during the WOD and I love that they had a good time!! (except when Rachelle tripped during a partner carry – I must have that effect on her. #mybad)
I am so proud of all my girls that came out for Guest Days at Elevated CrossFit. Everyone did SO amazing. I was excited to share something that I’m passionate about with all of them and I would LOVE it if they joined me more often! *cough, cough* Megan & Rachelle & Holly & Stephanie *cough, cough*
Tomorrow is the last day of Guest Days, the WOD is at 9:30 and ANYONE is welcome to join me. I think I might have my Momma and Joanna and Carly convinced to join me. WAHOO!
Can I just say again how FREAKIN’ stoked I am about my pull ups and HSPU?!
I am thrilled with all the progress that I’ve made over the last year with CrossFit.
It has been such an amazing journey and I can’t wait to see what next year holds for me!
