Awesome-ness.

12 Nov

Why is that when I blab about my feelings on here that they are usually resolved the next day?  I suppose I shouldn’t question it and just go with it, huh?  Suits me.  I’m just glad tonight’s WOD was able to lift my spirits.  What can I say to sum up tonight’s WOD?  AWESOME-NESS, that’s what it was.  I felt so good that I couldn’t focus on studying for my Finance test, instead I was turning cartwheels in my living room.  Soon the cartwheels turned into trying to do a HSPU in my dining room.  I was able to get up on the wall, ahem, by myself – but my arms weren’t locked, which cause the leaning and then crashing tower of Fletch.  I landed on my head, but I was too surprised that I got on the wall that I didn’t care.  I tried it again, but wasn’t as successful, but it’s a start, right??

 

I bet you’re wondering what was so awesome about tonight’s WOD…well, Josh Carter and coaches were determined to encourage everyone at the box to PR on Deadlifts and Push Jerks.  I have to say by all the posts popping up in my News Feed on Facebook that they were successful.  At the 5:45 p.m. class tonight, people were working up to their max 1 rep goal.  It was truly amazing to see everyone in the zone.  I know everyone in our class exceeded their max – it literally makes me want to scream “YEAH YUH” like Lil Jon.  Ahhhh!!!!  Before tonight my max on the Deadlift was 155 pounds, but tonight my max increased to 200 pounds!  I mean, whaaat??  That’s crazy, right?  My Push Jerk tonight exceeded to 105 pounds…eek!!!

 

I truly think everyone left the box tonight feeling accomplished.  Good stuff happening, people, good stuff.

        I’m thinking it would have been a good multiple of body-weight…and anything over 1x is fantastic!
