Friday - 10/24/2014

Lots of firsts today - some for me in my post-surgery journey and some for others in the noon class.

2 snatches @ 65#
This was light weight for me, but it was also the first time snatching with any weight at all.  It felt great to start getting the bar overhead.

Sumo dead lift
Worked up to 255#.

Cash out
High plank
First time in 15 weeks holding a high plank for a minute. We accumulated 4 minutes of high plank today.

After class, we all stood around the ropes for a bit. Ashley said, "I've never climbed the rope." We spent a few minutes on technique, and she gave it a try. Almost made it to the top but freaked out and came back down early. Second try was the charm. Right up the rope and a big grin at the top! Julia (from the morning crew) practice the footwork for a bit and got to the top on her second try as well.

Here's Ashley then Julia at the top:
