Weight Lifting

First things first! Morning coffee mmmmmm…..

Snack and lunch for the day….

And now I can head to work and kick some butts :)!!!!

After work I headed to my first weight lifting class! As well as being a CrossFit gym the box I recently started going to is a weight lifting gym too. They also offer a bunch of great classes like kettlebell, running club, mobility, conditioning, strong man, and fundamental classes. I love it all!

I’ve been wanting to attend a weight lifting class all month and finally moved my schedule around a little so I could fit some in. And I’m sure  glad I did, I learned a whole lot out of just one class.

What I got accomplished

Snatch work …work in progress

Back squats 4 sets of 4 @ 80 pounds

Plus some conditioning…I even joined in with the girls at the end to do some pullup and handstands. I really considered coming back to the gym in the evening for the WOD. pssssh what was I thinking now that I’m back home and reality has set in, I can already feel it I’m gonna be sore tomorrow!

Just about in the middle of week 6 in my CrossFit adventures and were about 2 months from the new year, what the perfect time to put a list of short-term goals together to accomplish by 2013!
