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)

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!

WOD
CFWUx2
Deadliftsx3: 135, 155, 165, 175 (PR), 175
Last set was pretty ugly. Form crumbled a bit.

Pull-ups (GTG)
2 reps/5 sets (2 over, 1 under, 2 mixed)

BP
45x10 (2 sets)
95x5
115x2 (PR)
120 (f)
115x2
115x2

Cooldown: Ran 3 miles:Easy 8 min mile pace

I'm beat. I really want some cookies too. Grrrrrr!

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.

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!
