WHAT ARE YOUR CROSSFIT GOALS? HOW CLOSE ARE YOU TO REACHING THEM?
UGH SO MANY! As I said above, the beauty of CrossFit is that you always have something new to work on, but that makes setting and sticking to goals difficult sometimes since I have the attention span of a golden retriever puppy when it comes to athletics. My ultimate goal is to be able to try anything. If I have a friend who invites me to do an activity I’m not familiar with, I want to be able to jump in trusting that I may not have the technical skills necessary to be an expert, but have the basic athleticism to not hurt myself.
On a more short-term scale, I realized this last open that I need to work on my upper body strength and my gymnastics, so I am focusing on working on extended time hanging from the bar, toes to bar, and anything with a dumbbell/barbell that involves upper body, especially overhead. I am hoping by the middle of the year to start Rx’ing some workouts that require overhead squats, thrusters, and the like, and by the end of the year to have comfortable working sets of major gymnastics movements.
WHAT’S AN ACCOMPLISHMENT OR GOAL YOU’VE REACHED DUE TO CROSSFIT THAT’S MADE YOU THE MOST PROUD?
I am most proud of being someone who prioritizes fitness in my life, and no longer hesitates or looks for reasons why I should not go work out. On a more measurable level, I am pretty proud of getting my first unassisted pull ups this year.
