And today marks my third complete cycle of training since cutting back on the traditional WOD classes at my box and trying out the programming with The Outlaw Way.

If you missed it.. you can check out why I’m trialing Outlaw and an update from my first cycle, and an update from my second cycleAlso… To keep up with my workouts, you can follow me on Google+ as I post them there daily, and if it’s an epic workout, it’ll be on my instagram with a story and picture to go along with it!

Summary of lifts, starting 1RM (as of 10/25/2014) to ending (11/21/2014):

Snatch: 100# –> 100#
Clean: 130# –> 130#
Jerk: 130# –> 130#
Clean and Jerk (combined): 125# –> 125#
Back Squat: 155# –> 155#
Front Squat: 125# –> 150#

Overall, none of my Oly lifts went up.. BUT, did hit a front squat PR so was pretty thrilled about that (though it’s only 5# less than my back squat…)!! [click to continue…]

Predictable Food Journey of the New Millennium Woman

November 14, 2014

Before I started Crossfit I was following the New Rules of Lifting for Women and one of the best outcomes of doing that program was finding an online community of other women who were doing the program or were veterans of it.

October 31, 2014

Okay, so this is an idea I have been throwing around for a while and thought I may as well jump on it and see how it goes! Sparked by the idea of dropping in at boxes while traveling, and by the awesome connections I’ve made via social networking with Crossfitters, I wanted to find […]

Mental Toughness: Untrained 10k and Crossfit

October 27, 2014

I started my Stitcher podcast app just before the race started and had my Runkeeper ready to go. I always feel awkward doing the weird shuffle at the starting line, everyone pressing the button on their Garmins and me, as a historical amateur runner, fiddling with my new phone, which was much larger than my […]

5 reasons you still suck at Crossfit

October 24, 2014

Originally titled “5 reasons you’re not getting better at Crossfit” or “5 reasons your progress with Crossfit has stalled,” I feel Crossfitters are more drawn to the use of the word “suck” when referring to bouts of negativity in the sport, though really this post can be relevant to any sport outside of Crossfit, too. “Do […]

Typical Day in the life of Me v2 with Pictures

October 13, 2014

As you are reading this I am excitedly on a plane en route from Detroit to Long Beach, traveling to the seemingly mythical Sunny California that I have only heard about from others or seen pictures. A place where the sun is always shining and there is a laid-back more health conscious culture than here in […]
