A Soccer Mom's Log
 
I've been a gym rat for many years now here in Atlanta and used to work full-time as a Personal Trainer. Until recently, my workouts involved about 5-6 hours a week of cardio and a split weight-lifting routine about 4 days per week. Yes, I work out in a globogym. I found myself bored out of my mind and then, Crossfit landed in my lap (and on my shoulders, quads, hamstrings, abs, etc!)

I've only been at it about a month, but have found it the most challenging thing I've ever done! I had heard about CF from another gym junkie about a year ago. After a quick peek at this website, I laughed then turned and ran. As I recall, that day the WOD involved a massive number of pull-ups. Ah, the pull-up! It's haunted me for years now. It's at the very center of why I returned to CF. I will master it!

So within a few short weeks, I had my first pull-up (okay that was only about a week ago and I can still only do one, single, puny, dead-hang, overhand grip pull-up!). I was elated! Decided to keep a log beginning today since "Angie" was such a monster for me!

Angie
100 Pull-ups (started with pink woody bands then blue, then green)
100 Push-ups (all manly style, but broken sets)
100 Ab Mat sit-ups, unanchored
100 Squats. dynamax depth
19:40

20 min of globo cardio (can't help myself)

Good work on Angie! She is a monster isn't she.

Yes, Chantal, Angie was a monster and today is a new day!
Got my eye on you too, Byers! Your avatar cracks me up every time.

Last night I dreamed that I was doing an endless set of pull-ups. I just kept kipping and kipping! I woke up in the middle of the dream in a sweat. It reminded me of how I would have dreams that I could fly when I was a kid. So off to the gym I went. I felt like I could move a mountain today. Had a few PRs! This stuff really works!

Awesome! I love deadlift PRs. You and I are at the same place with deadlifts. I'm gunning for 1.5x body weight. I bet we'll both be hitting that soon. ;)

Nice on the pull-ups too - you are really rockin' those.

Not sure what to do today. Kid's soccer games just ended. Need to head to the gym but my lower back is pretty stiff from 175#DL yesterday. Need to run a 10K bc have a 10race coming up in 2 months and my goal is 45:00. Gorgeous sunny day here in ATL!

Richard-Working on making friends with OHS, but not close friends. Just casual! BFFs are bench press, lunges, jumping rope, and running! Enemies include pull-ups, box jumps, KTE, and dips. Working on being friends with everyone though!
