165lb OHS wha what!

Okay, so i never praise myself for my successes/accomplishments in my training with crossfit. I don't like it, it makes me feel uncomfortable, and i definitely don't want to come across as bragging because that's not what crossfit is about for me. Well, after today's workout and reading Lindsey Smith's blog last week, crossfitchron.blogspot.com, i decided to share my excitement. Today after my 4:00 class i put on my oly shoes and did CROSSFIT main site WOD which was 7 sets of 1 OHS (over head squats). I wasn't really sure what weight to start with because i haven't done strength work on OHS in a while. I started at 95lbs to warm up, it felt pretty good so i decided to start my first rep at 105lb. I went up by ten pounds every rep. I got to my sixth rep and completed a 155lb OHS!! I couldn't believe i got that! What! 155 pounds over my head, and it felt good too! So i put on another ten pounds for my last rep....165lb, more than my body weight! It discouraged me at first, but i thought about what Vic has always told me, "your alot stronger than you think" I kept on saying to myself, "you can do this, you can this, you are strong" I was focused and determined and i freaking got it!!!!! 165 pound OHS, YEA BABY!!! I was so pumped, i mean wouldn't you be!?!? I immediately sent Vic a text. I believe the exact words were, "I FU#$ING got 165 OHS" haha, yes i threw the F bomb in there, but only because i was sooooo freaking excited and the F bomb, in my opinion, is the only word that really explains your feelings, ya know what i mean?  So thank you Lindsey for writing that blog and reminding me that its okay to praise your accomplishments every now and then. GO 165lbs! I'm going to give this blog post a thumbs up around the board.

This is a client and friend of mine, Kelly Crabb who sent me a pic of her
