Cool Progress!!

Just wanted to share some progress with some fellow KoolAid sippers!

First pic is from May 9th on my way to my 1st interview with the CHP.
About 235# @ 5'8''

Second pic is heading down for my last evaluation for the CHP.
About 218#

I'm now 210# I started CrossFit a day or two after the second picture. I was a little discouraged that I didn't drop much weight... but the progress I've made in only about 90 days is AMAZING!

Tonight I got 10 kipping pullups! up from only one dead hang when I started! (good thing too, we've got Helen tomorrow)
I'm closing in on 20 minutes for a lil R+R.
I've ran a 7:30 mile! my fastest ever, without any 'extra' run training.
About the only thing I absolutly loathe are Double Unders... but I'm working on stringing them together.
In ten days I'm heading to the CHP Academy and could only be more prepared if I had gotten to "my" box a couple months sooner.
I''m a CrossFit-er for life!

Re: Progress!!

Great job, welcome to CF.

And by the way, for 5'8" you're carrying that amount of weight (in both pics) really well (in a non-homosexual type way [not that there is anything wrong with that!])

I'm 5'8 too.

Re: Progress!!

Had my sending off workout at Level 10CrossFit tonight I had made a special request for the WOD.... Fight Gone Bad!
The last and first time I did FGB was Thanksgiving morning after about a month of CrossFit & got a 263. About noon today I really started to get 'jacked-up for the workout...with a goal of 300. After three rounds of pain and one sweat angel I tallied it up... 326!!! I was sooo fricking happy!
I'll post some pictures a lil later... the local gymnastics academy is having a drop in night for adults!
