Exciting Times Ahead
I have a few things happening in the near future. The first is having some weightlifting coaching with some Commonwealth Games coaches! Crossfit Gladstone is starting up a weightlifting club and to start the ball rolling we are having a competition on Saturday and then small group coaching on Sunday. I chose not to be part of the competition because, well, I don't want to make a complete dick of myself but after much thought I decided to sign up for a coaching session. The last time I did a Oly lifting session it was with all the 'guns' of CFG and, to be honest, I felt really out of place and didn't get any feedback on my form. I didn't really want to be the only "not quite a gun" to sign up. I then thought to myself that there is only 1 way to improve and that is to ask for help so these poor coaches have to try and help me and all my uncoordinatedness learn the ways of Olympic lifting. I can give you the hot tip that they are going to earn their money Sunday morning,
The other exciting thing on my radar is another local competition which will be a team competition this time. There is another Crossfit Mum who is keen to do a competition and I asked another one of the girls with whom I have trained before and I know would be a great teammate. I'm really excited as a team competition should be so much fun (I find this bizarre as I was always the person who hated team sports as a kid because I got so much flak for being so incredibly bad at stuff). I think our team is quite even with regard to ability and in it just for the fun factor. Can't wait!
