I cannot believe it’ll be Christmas in 1 weeks time! Insane how time flies. We’ve made it through that cold snap, now it’s time for some snow and slightly warmer weather!
Some huge Milestones this past week at the gym. Lula got her first Muscle Up! And Austin hit one his many goals of cleaning over 300lbs, which in our world is a 137.5kg. Both remarkable achievements, both put a huge smile on my face. But really there’s only 2 words that come to mind. Hard work. In both cases these are things that don’t happen by accident. So many little things that were done right along the way to even have these things come to fruition. Congratulations you guys, well deserved. There’s a lot I can say about this, but there’s one thing worth noting. Lula hurt her hand pretty badly this spring. So much so that wasn’t allowed to use it. Wasn’t allowed to Mountain Bike. And if you know Lula, you know that mountain biking is her thing. She was racing world cup downhill the year before, it wasn’t just a hobby. So, as you do when there’s an injury, you stop coming to the gym, and wait for everything to work perfectly before training again. NO!!!! You work with what you’ve got. Lula avoiding many things, and for quite some time. Still not out of the woods yet, and might still be looking at surgery, she was able to achieve a Muscle UP. 2 actually. All while working around an injury. So, if you are reading this and hurt something on the mountain, or any where. There’s still so much that can be done in the gym. If you don’t think you’ll be better off for it, let this story change your mind.
For the week ahead, it’s a special one. We are hitting our 12 days of Xmas WOD on Wednesday. And our feats of Strength Saturday. If you’ve never done either, they are polar opposites. 12 days is a long WOD. Feats of strength of bunch of fitness tests. Both are meant to be fun.
As for the holiday schedule. The only change out of the ordinary is on Monday the 26th we’ll be closed for Boxing Day.
Enjoy the week!
