I have and am a work in progress

I was going to tease and share and then changed my mind.
But just a hint - we're heading out for about
4-6 weeks on an RV trip and I'm making my journal/album
ahead of time so I can scrap our adventures along the way.
Not close to being done with it yet - the desk is a mess so until
it's done........

Therefore, I shall talk about my other work in progress.
Me.
This is toward the end of my battle of 16.5 open.
It was ugly and hard - ain't gonna lie.
If you aren't into Crossfit - they have games to see
who's the fittest in the world.
Five weeks of the worse combinations that can be
thought of are done by everyone in the crossfit world.
You can pay to play to see where you rank
and if your really really good - you get to go regionals
and compete and then to the world.
Or something like that and
then there's me over here in the box just caring to get through them all.
Without dying or crying
-both were close.
 So the workout was made of thrusters and burpees - just
two of anyone's favorite moves. NOT.
The reps for time was 21-18-15-12-9-6-3.
And didn't those numbers strike terror in everyone's heart.
There was a 30 minute time cap and I finished in 25:14.
Totally not bad.
Those two exercises somehow engage every single
solitary muscle, tendon and bones in the body.
I was the last man standing so to speak - but I didn't get smoked.
I finished and am stronger for it.

So just to recap - ANYONE CAN DO CROSSFIT- yes that means YOU
 - no matter what your age.
The hardest part is starting - find a great box, great coaches
and the rest will fall into place.

As soon as my album is done - there's a page coming on this.
