Sore ... haha!

I'm sitting at my desk about to start my work day. And wow, am I ever sore! It's not just muscle sore, but also energy/glycogen-depleted sore.

I haven't been blogging in a while, but I have been keeping fit. Here's a brief update.

Olympic Lifting

I attended the CrossFit Weightlifting course (April 26-27) and learned so much! Here are some quick highlights:

  • Head trainer was Josh Everett!!
  • Camille Leblanc-Bazinet was there too! I saw her snatch 190 lb and finish Fran shortly after in 1:59
  • My lifts feel more solid. The highlight for me was hitting a 155 lb snatch.
  • PVC pipes are tiring :)
  • I met a lot of great trainers, coaches and athletes. Blessed and grateful.

Half Marathon

This past Sunday, I joined Carmelina for her first half marathon! Carm was a bit nervous and did not think she could finish. We picked up the slowest pace band we could find (3:15 for the half marathon) and just went for it. The short story is we finished it in 3:14, together, with tears of happiness, disbelief and joy :) A great first race! It goes without saying that I'm extremely proud of her and excited as we continue to become the best we can be physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
