Women who inspire me...
This past Sunday me and the ladies got together for our weekly workouts. We did the Crossfit.com wod from sat which was 21-15-9 sqt cleans and ring dips. My girl Marie Conrad, for the first time did 75lbs sqt cleans!!! She excitingly said, "even though i came in last, i still finished with that weight!" I told her, who cares about finishing first, especially at our ladies WOD's. Its just about pushing yourself, and seeing how far you can go. Great Job Marie I am so proud of you!
Monday was FRAN day at the box. Those of you non crosfitters, Fran is the absolute worst, make you want to throw up, entire body tingles, and goes numb at the same time workout. Its 21-15-9 Thrusters and pull ups. Lizzy Langley is a client and friend of mine, and last night she rocked that WOD with a time of 5:01!!!! She was so pumped and I am so happy for her. Way to go Lizzy, I am so proud! Keep it up girl;) Also my good friend Lori Reilly got her Fran time down from 7:48 to 5:57!!!! WOW! Lori, you have come so far since you started crossfit. Your mentally and physically stronger, and you inspire me every time you come in the box and conquer your challenges!
Jessi Cooper is another one who PR'd at the box. Her new nickname is "deadlift queen." Two weeks ago she got a PR of 265lb. Apparently a little women power helps her out, because on Sunday at our ladies WOD, she lifted a 285lb deadlift!! Congrats Jessi! Monica Wonzer also is a deadlift role model of mine. She got a PR of 265 like it was nothing. Girls, i am so proud of you both for pushing yourself to the limit and never giving up with whatever is thrown at you.
