I love Crossfit

Ok, so a post that isn't about the boys, just about me for a bit.

Some of you know that I have started going to a new gym, Crossfit. And I have to say that I am absolutely loving it.

From the pictures on the website, everyone looks fabulous, thin, strong. I'm a newbie so don't know many people, but I can't begin to tell you how nice everyone is. They are all encouraging and friendly. And I'm shocked to see these women who, from looking at them, I think I could break them like a twig. And then I watch them lift 10s of pounds more than I am.

I am especially proud of myself today because I got my form down on the Clean and Jerk and lifted fairly well. I clean and jerked 70 pounds. Last week, I was struggling with my clean form with 35 pounds.

These are short, intense workouts and I can already tell how much stronger I'm getting... now I just need to get to more cardio so that I can work up to that half marathon that My aunt and I are going to run.

Here's a couple of shots of me that they put on the website: (these are different workouts, although I'm wearing similar clothes and making ugly faces in both :))

Good Job! When is the half marathon?

Good question... Auntie Mary mentioned one in May in Providence, but I don't think I'll be ready by then.

I'll have to find one for a little later in the spring or summer :)
