It’s Friday at 9:50pm and I’m writing a blog post. Yeah I’m 23 and I’m lame. Just kidding! I’m at home because I’m running the Richmond, Monument Ave 10K tomorrow morning. Our wave goes at 9:05 so I’m getting ready to hit the hay.
I just wanted to drop in and say that…
I DID MY FIRST KIPPING PULL UP TODAY!
Say what? It only took me 5ish months of practicing and getting stronger, but I did my first real life kipping pull up today. I was so excited! I was actually really surprised because I wasn’t expecting to get my chin above the bar. It was after the WOD and I ran an extra mile afterwards because the WOD was short, so I was pretty tired, but hey I got up there. I even went back for more. I didn’t quite get two in a row, but I did do several more pull ups which means that it wasn’t just a random stroke of strength, I really am getting strong! YES!
The sad part… we did not take any pictures or videos. So stupid. I need to remind myself to take more pictures since I actually have somewhere to post them now.
I’d like to think that I looked like this:
But I probably didn’t.
Alright, it’s bed time for me. Tomorrow will be my first road race since August 2012. And I’ve only been training minimally, mostly because I REFUSED to not go to CrossFit every day. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll post about it sometime tomorrow or Sunday. Stay Tuned.
Have a SUPER weekend, and GO WORK OUT! You won’t regret it! 🙂
