So yesterday I had something kinda cool and kinda strange at the same time happen to me.... First off I believe there is a God and that He has a plan for each of us. I also believe that He talks to us even when we try to close our ears to His voice and go our own way and make our own decisions based on what WE want. I hear Him as a whisper or a feeling - left ignored the whispers turn to yells and He usually will put me in uncomfortable situations to face whatever it is I am avoiding or ignoring. So - that being said I have been trying to think of a way to get back to church and to get back ultimately to faith. Yesterday I ran into a friend from church who I was not really looking forard to seeing because I feared judgement, cold shoulder...whatever you want to say. I ran into this person in a doctors office so I couldn't really just leave .....and all I saw in her eyes for me was love. It really struck my heart because i didn't think her, of all people, would treat me warmly. Anyway- it felt really nice and I know God put her in my path as a sort of sign that I am loved. Who doesn't like to feel that ?
Today's workout was a beast....give it a try:
25 hang power cleans
20 hang power cleans
15 hang power cleans
row 1,000 meters
I used 78 pounds. I SHOULD OF used 88 pounds but I was feeling a little weak from having had a cold and blah blah blah. 78 pounds was FINE for today! :) 24:10 was my time. The row slowed me down like crazy.....
I also did track sprints yesterday totaling 4.5 miles in the end.
Check out this months January CrossFit Journal for some amazing endurance training coupled with CrossFit.....GB.....READ IT!! I'm going to train the way McKenzie suggests for 5 weeks after I give it a read and see how far I can go.
Pay attention to the signs.....they're all around you.....
