True Inspiration

With all the inspirational quote internet memes going around, I saw this one and thought that it summed up my life the best right now.  After a hiatus, and a chance to reset while I was traveling for work…I’m back at it at Craic.  Felt good to be back. Even got to wear the majority of my gear 🙂  We did 20 minutes of snatch skill work (well, the class did…) I did 20 minutes of clean work at 65# and it felt HEAVY.  Being away for almost a month hurts!  Then we did 21-15-9 of front squats (the class did OHS) @ 65# and ring rows (as Rx was pull-ups).  I managed to do all of it unbroken and just tried to maintain a slow and steady pace.  Final time was 3:54.  Then I went to PT for my shoulder.  It’s bugging me a ton after being on the road for three weeks.  Izzy was there hanging out, as usual!

Back at it with knee sleeves and lifting shoes!

Here are a few pics from my adventures while I was traveling.  Lots of fun and now it’s back to reality.

Gracie Bella, my friend's cat. I cuddled her a little too much because I was missing my kitties at home.  She is not impressed.

Avocado, mango, cilantro, apple smoothie.  Was a little like liquid guacamole.
