Good morning, and happy Monday! I hope your weekend was wonderful!
My entire weekend pretty much revolved around Saturday’s girls only partner competition! I am still sore and tired, but it was such a fun day! I loved spending the day with friends from the Crossfit gym, plus my parents and my boyfriend who came to watch.
There were 3 short workouts that were completed as a team, plus 3 “Behind the scenes” events that took place whenever you had a few minutes in between workouts. These were max unbroken hand stand push ups, 2 rep max weight back squat, and max time L-sit hold (think gymnasts on the parallel bars, holding themselves up with their legs straight out in front of them, so their body is in an “L” shape).
My goal for the 2 rep max back squat was 145# and I ended up with 150#, so I’d call that event a success!
There were some remarkably strong women competing! It was simply incredible to watch some of them! I truly had a great time!
After the competition concluded, we headed to a nearby restaurant for a much deserved dinner and drinks to close out the night. Loved spending time with my amazing Crossfit friends!
Sunday was all about running a couple of errands and doing a LOT of resting, stretching, and recovery… My thighs are not happy with me right now.
We did manage to find a new Christmas tree for my boyfriend’s house on Sunday, as well as some new ornaments. We spotted this little reindeer guy and my boyfriend and I both reached for him, not sure who grabbed him first! Maybe true love = same taste in Christmas decorations?
Ended the evening with homemade chili, a (large) glass of red wine, and the last episode of Orange is the New Black. Perfect weekend!
