I took on this workout on friday with the .com class. I was tempted to do the 95# weight prescribed for the men, but after talking with coach Lance Cantu he suggested I test my bite with the prescribed weight and lets see how fast I could go.

here is the workout:
50 pull ups
400 m run
21 thrusters
800 m run
21 thrusters
400 m run
50 pull ups


I felt like a train hit me! I did my first 25 pull ups unbroken, butterfly.
I did my thrusters, both sets, 15 and 6.
The first 100 m out on almost all the runs was total recovery, and my last 400 Lance clocked me at 2:04, pathetic. Had I known that I would have ran a little faster; however, I am not sure that would have benefited me on the last set of pull ups! That was the longest, other then the 800, portion of the workout. I did butterfly in sets of 10 up to 30 and then took a significant break. I was hurting. then on the bar for 8 , 8 and 4. OUCH!

I will do that workout again and beat my time.

EYE of the TIGER!

How many hats do you where?

While doing front squats today a thought came across my mind. How many hats do I wear? Maybe not the best thing to think about with 180 pounds racked on the front of your chest. but, being the skilled athlete that I am ( one hat ), I did my set of three and thought a moment longer and cm up with these as a start in no particular order:

coach (could be considered a teacher but in my eyes different, more on this later)
enemy (to someone I am)

how do I manage?
F***'** good question?

stay tuned.

50 - 40- 30- 20- 10

What do you do in a day?

Today was a busy day. It was filled with self love, giving love, and receiving love. I was able to give love to my 5:45am and 6:30am Crossfit Women's only classes. I was able to share some information about our Women's Only event that is coming up in less than two weeks. I was able to take my camera persons, Nicole and Ben with me out to the trail and capture a little piece of the train run! (By the way this race is going to be a blast Ladies!!!) After my short run I raced back to the gym to tackle one of the most challenging things I have been doing for the last 4 weeks, YOGA. Yes, I have been doing Yoga for 4 weeks with an awesome instructor by the name of Sineiah. She is a Crossfitter as well. She has been allowing me to train under her and I must say it has been extremely challenging. I Love it, it hurts, and I am getting better. It will improve my overall training, I know it! After and hour of Yoga(yes this is considered self love and receiving love), I had meetings with a few trainers to discuss programs, 90 day calenders, and the future of our gym. (giving love and receiving love) Then off to massage. One hour on Julia's table could put you in tears, yes this is more self love, painful self love. Then off to lululemon. I wish I had gone in to shop but I was there for business. Some of you may know that I am an ambassador for Lululemon. This means that I Love there clothes, and do promotional events to support them as they support me. Great relationship! Today we spoke about how we could get team crossfit endurance technical shirts for our endurance communtiy, as well as discussed doing a Slim and trim boot camp month up at the store in the month of November! (Look out for that!!!) so this was LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

then to the gym for a torture session with Crystal and LIsa, we did todays .com WOD
ELIZABETH--- yuck! 9:57 105# squat clean, ring dips---21-15-9


then off tho Arrosti to see why my shoulder keeps bugging me to death! and yes I left there with cool pink tape on my shoulder! Arrosti is a fabo means to injury healing. Let me know if you would like more info on this technique.

Then home to the fam.

Today you can see I had a ton of self care. If you do not take care of yourself, who will. This means workout, eat well, get massage, take care of you injuries and you will live a long full life!
