So my buddy Jason is back in town, recovering from nagging injuries, but willing to keep at the crossfit madness with me before he PCS's home. We hit the track for this:

10 x 100m sprint, rest 1 minute between rounds. 

It's been a long time since I've done any serious sprinting and this actually felt really good. First few rounds were at about 12seconds. I managed to keep between 12-14seconds each round. Now was this a strict 100m? No, but we were pretty close. I chased Jason each and every time, it was awesome to finally have someone to push me.

After party was four rounds of 1 min planks, then 30seconds on the pullup bar doing pullups, strict hang, l-sits, a combo or whatever. I found out that I can hold myself up up over the bar for just shy of 30 seconds. That may not sound like much, but when I started crossfit I couldn't: (1) get myself over the bar or (2) hold myself above the bar (after assistance getting up there) for even 3 seconds. I call that progess! It's humbling to think back to that first day on the bar, a little over a year ago, Jerry lifting me up, saying "HOLD IT", and my weak arms crumbling in mere seconds. I've not been practicing pullups much at all, so the fact I can still string 4 or so in a row and get up on that bar makes me happy.

Awesome! 30 seconds hanging above the bar is amazing. I haven't timed myself in a long while, but wow! I don't know if I could make 30 seconds. Good job girlie!!
