Isn't funny how not much can change but for some strange reason your whole mindset changes. I am having a rather positive week and, while I don't know why, I'm going to roll with it. I have set myself some little mini goals and have reached a couple of them which is always a great way to make things a lot brighter.
My first goal of the week was to do a 15 kg Overhead Squat. As I have said previously, I struggled with the O-bar so used a lower weight at the gym and eventually worked up to 15 kg which is the lightest o-bar at Crossfit.
My next goal is to a handstand - I haven't had time to practice this one.
My third goal is to do a box jump. Box jumps terrify me so I started on my aerobics step and have moved to a step outside which was a smidge higher. I have tried a box at the gym which is higher again (about 12 inches) but still need to build my confidence a bit more on this one. I know it most probably sounds ridiculous but with my very good imagination I see myself missing the step, falling forward and knocking out all my teeth. I think the lowest at Crossfit is 12" so I will at least be able to do a WOD without having to do step ups instead.
Another achievement for me this week is I taught myself how to do double-unders which is skipping where you do 2 rotations of the rope to 1 skip. They are pretty hard and I was that excited when I did one. Now I need to string a few together and not stop everytime I do one to squeel that I did it!
All in all, it's been a pretty good week.
