Getting back at it!

Tay HSPU regionals

Hey Everyone,

Sorry I have been MIA for a while now.  It was just crazy with the holidays, work, traveling, etc… that I neglected my blog.  My husband and spend the first week of January driving all over the place trying to see family and friends all in one trip.  It made for a busy time and then when we got back I had a lot of work to do.  During that time we only worked out on Dec. 24 and didn’t do anything again until January 8th!  It was a nice break, but getting back into the rhythm of things was HARD!  I swear I need to get re-acclimated all over again! Lol.  I think I like to use that as an excuse when I go from the mountain to sea level and back to the mountains!  Anyway… here are the WODs you’ve missed since we’ve been back!  Not going to lie the “12 Days of Christmas” wod was probably one of my favs even though I was sick with the stomach flu while doing it!

WOD: Monday, December 24

Saturday, January 12 : Strength Specific Seminar @ CrossFit Verve

I attended this seminar that was instruction on Olympic lifts (snatch and clean & jerk).  It went from 9am-6pm and had a ton of lifting all day!  It was extremely informative and I definitely would say that I learned a ton!  Now I just need to continue to practice and eventually I hope I can hit some big numbers!  Oh and not going to lie.. I was excited that the seminar was at CrossFit Verve… I really wanted to meet Matt Chan, but unfortunately he was not there. :(


Stay Tuned I will be posting a tortilla soup recipe and a spaghetti squash recipe soon!  Have a great rest of the day everyone! :)
