L Pull ups.....

So this is an older pic - but I love it so much it deserves a re post!! This is my man Brendan and I doing a crazy L pull up workout. I remember when these were hard for me........not any more. I can do plenty now!

Workout :
"Elizabeth"
21 - 15 - 9

83 pound squat clean
ring dips

Time : 12:13.....

That was a better time than the last time I did it and I used heavier weight and squat cleaned instead of hang cleans.....I'm improving....And I cranked out 13 ring dips before a had to rest. Then I broke em up into sets of 7. I try to do L pull ups every day along with deep dips. I love them!! My hip / knee has been acting up again - well, really ever since the last marathon a couple weeks ago. I'm registered for the Cal international marathon this weekend in Sacramento - but am entertaining the thought that I may have to bail out. I want to hit my goal of finishing in 3:15-3:20 and I haven't been able to train at the high speed intervals I needed to in order to reach my goal time. I can still use my last years finish time of 3:26 to get to Boston Marathon in April - I may just do that. Take this month to completly heal, recharge, and re focus. There have been many distractions in my life and my training has taken a backseat. I'm ready to start back with intense focus and will do so in a month. I'm working on getting my aches better......I know I'm going to tear up Boston!!! I'll keep training CrossFit and get stronger....strict Zone diet....all that jazz....!!!
