It's early and I'm up as always. Outside it's dark and cold. I really dislike winter and it seems like it's come early this year. Fall in the past has been a bit warmer.
I've been thinking about a competition for myself the last few days. How many ball slams in 20 minutes. I heard about it on the Gym Jones site. They were talking an hour! That's a lot of time. Maybe I can work up to that. But to keep it more fun 20 minutes sounds more like it. My med ball is 15lbs. Anyone who gives this a read let me know what you think and lets give it a go. At some point I might post it on the CF board, but not right yet. A few people have posted competitions there and gotten the smack down by others thinking it was lame. I'm not ready for that.
Last night I hit 35 pushups! Really want to get that forty but it's going to take some more time. Up to 20 my form is really good then I stop going as low and fight the sag in the min section. Pushup are one of my favorites. With my feet on boxes or one hand up one hand down. Both hands elevated. Then pullups. Yes I love pull ups. My kip is coming along, but not quite there. Dead hangs my max is like 7 or 8. But if I do GTG I can do them all day. Then dips, I found this new place at a park to do dips on a play ground. It's awesome and really deep. It needs a picture to be explained well.
Since starting CF not only has my physical shape change but my confidence as well. I have dyslexia. I've never been much of a written person. I love to read and can't get enough of that. Posting on boards and having a blog is intimidating to say the lest. I can see improvements all the time. This makes me happy! Yes, I know there are mistakes and some things could be said better. It's ok I'll get there.
