Soar.

“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” ― Helen Keller

The last time I did Elizabeth was in June. It was at 55lbs. and took over 9 minutes. (This all sounds so perverse and derogatory, but, it’s not… It’s anything but…) Anyhoo, in June I even lost count on the reps so who really knows my true score. I vowed to return and do Elizabeth again. *Fist held towards sky*

I never did.

Until today.

Today’s WOD: Elizabeth. Completed: at 75lbs. In 6:03. And definitely could have gone 10lbs. heavier. In case you missed that, I’m certain I could have gone 30lbs. heavier than my best in June. 10lbs. from RX at 95lbs.

My point: it’s incredible how you can feel certain you’ve hit a plateau, a stalling point, with no where left to go. Simply no more room to grow: In life, in CF, at work, with love, and then suddenly, one day, you wake up and your Personal Records punch through the ceiling and soar.

I. Barbell Gymnastics:

5 Sets –

Hang Squat Cleans + 1 Push Jerk

*Rest 90 seconds between sets

Completed: at 65lbs., 75lbs., 85lbs., 95lbs., 100lbs. Again, could have gone heavier. Remember the days when I was feeling stuck with trying to get 100lbs. overhead? Me too. No more.

II. Conditioning:

“Elisabeth”

21-15-9

Power Clean (135/95)

Ring Dips
