Hello my lovelies! I woke up to snow on the rooftops here in Glasgow. I do not want more winter! I’ve already have my heart set on it getting warmer and sunnier! When Faye told me yesterday we’re expected to get a snowstorm I was not happy haha. We’ll see how much of a snowstorm there’ll be here in the city. So far it seems quite peaceful out there but having lived in Glasgow for almost five and a half years (has it really been that long?!) I know that can always change at the blink of an eye.
What’s been happening with you guys? There’s been a lot of stuff happening recently that I don’t really feel ready to share on here quite yet as I can’t believe it’s happening myself. It’s all very positive but I’m getting way out of my comfort zone and once I feel like I’ve started to digest it I’ll share it with you guys, I promise. I get nervous just thinking about it right now but a good nervous (I think haha). There’s too many thoughts going on in my head at the moment but I think it’s mainly good! Sorry for being so vague…
Other than that I’ve been training (surprise). I’m feeling like I’m really back in the groove now and started to get good times on my workouts again. Yesterday evening we did one of the “Battle for Britain” (a big Crossfit competition) qualifying workouts in different scaled versions depending on our ability. I was really really happy with my time! I felt like I’m on the right track for Rainhill.
Now I just need to get some more weightlifting in. I haven’t really done much because I just wanted to kick myself into shape and get my pulse up again. It’s time to dust off some heavier lifting, cleans, jerks and snatches. God when I did my snatches yesterday during the WOD they felt awful. I had Ray’s voice from Team Cavanagh in my head and knew that he would not have been impressed by those snatches haha. I know I just to brush off on my technique and it’ll be okay but it shows once again how olympic lifting is an art and skill you constantly need to stay on top of. I’m going to open gym tonight so that’s what’s on the agenda. We’ll see how that goes! I’m so excited to give my new weightlifting shoes a proper try.
It’s time to get this day started!
