NEW PR!! :))

What a crazy week this has been! My husband was sent to Iowa for the next 4 weeks. (that's a really long way from Alabama). He was told on Monday and had to leave Tuesday morning! So, I have been just getting my ducks in a row, rescheduling appointments, and just doing what it takes. I'll be honest, the first thing I thought was, "I CrossFit, I got this!" But needless to say, I have been quite busy over the past few days.
Even though I may not have much to say from day to day, I promised myself, and those of you who are keeping up with this, that I would post everyday during the week. I wasn't too worried about yesterday though, since it was my rest day.
After I finish this entry, I am going to start packing for my Olympic Lift Certification this weekend. I can not begin to describe how excited I am! This is probably my favorite thing about CrossFit...Olympic lifts. I want to be better at them myself! You know, be able to snatch 165lbs, that kinds of thing. Most importantly I want to be the best coach I can be.

So here is a recap of yesterday and today. Oh, by the way! How many of you watched the CrossFit Games last night? Wow! Just WOW! The women are just incredible athletes! day!

Wednesday-Rest Day

Today's Strength
Took a break from my strength sets and worked on a 1 rep max deadlift. I got a new PR at 225lbs! I think I could have gone heavier because that 225lbs seemed to come off the ground ALOT easier than I expected. But when I tried 235lbs, I lifted it maybe an inch. I KNOW it was in my head! But not because of fear. It was because my coach had told us to stop once we hit our PR. When I went for the 235lbs, I knew I wasn't "following instructions." I know that's it! Your head HAS to be in the right place! I can't wait to try this again in about 2 weeks.
