OKay, I want to start off by saying with the storms that went through last night, I didn't sleep that well, at all! The best sleep was from 3:30 til 4:30 when our 2-year old came in and was staring at me, which is an awful way to wake-up -- just sayin'. Alarm went off at 4:52 a.m. slapped it quiet. I got up at 5:06 saying OKAY I need to go. Yes, I do fight with myself, but I go!!! I have goals and laying in bed isn't going to get me to those goals. I am so glad that I went.
I can say that this morning was intense. We kept at it neck-n-neck....arm-n-arm...bar-n-bar? I don't know, whatever, you want to call it. It was intense and I am so glad that Brian figured out that the music is what set it. HA HA HA (Brian -- I don't listen to that music that we begun with and I think the end music was more of a hurry-up so we don't have to listen to it anymore, type deal????) Either way.....we rocked. It was intense, we are all at different levels -- the three of us and we were within seconds of each other. Makes me have goals and actually want to practice my pull-ups. SERIOUSLY! I can say that I feel like a million bucks without a doubt!
My hands feel like they are on fire and hurt, but I heard its normal. I used to do hard work. I guess to explain it; the day that I helped my dad cut-up concrete with the jack hammer. Ugh..I told you he was a contractor, that I used to work with him....yes, I, Jen, used a jack hammer and felt like my brain was shook right out of its place -- which, might explain a lot. But that is how my hands feel. I want to just get ice and put my hands on the ice.
Did I tell you? I love chalk. Its my new B.F.F! NOW...if there was purple chalk how cool would that be??? LOL KIDDING...only kidding!!!! Maybe. What about tape??? I read that gloves are bad to use, because it makes your hands -- thicker and harder to grip the bar.
OKay..this is what was prescribed, this a.m. at the box.

OOO I got me a Crossfit616 t-shirt! woot, sweatshirt is for down the road, but I want one.
My husband texts me this - 'You need to put a towel on seat. My back is wet with your sweat'. 'EWWWW', was my response. NOT I am sorry. So, Hun, I am sorry you have my sweat on your back, but I am sharing the success of a great WOD!
