My last day of On Ramp was bittersweet. I’m grateful to have completed the one-on-one Crossfit program and prepare for classes, but I’m sad to not have my sessions with Coach Kate anymore. So on my last day, I gave it my all.
I started with back squats. Last time, I maxed out at 100 pounds. Not because I couldn’t go any farther, but because we had set my scale to reach 100 pounds. So this time, I made a point to tell Coach Kate I wanted to break 100 lbs. So we started with 85 pounds for three back squats, and then 95 pounds for three back squats. And in the moment of truth, I went for it with 105 pounds and rocked it. Then 110, 115, and then 120!!
I can’t thank Coach Kate enough for having faith in me and pushing me just enough to reach and surpass my goal. I’m so grateful to have someone encourage me.
At the end of the night, I had one more big win. I redid my first On Ramp WOD. Last time, I completed it in 10:26 (Row 400 meters, then 21-15-9 sets of Air Squats, Push-Ups, Ring Rows, and then another 400 meter row). I really didn’t think I’d shave any time off since I set the bar so high in my first session. But Kate pushed me, encouraged me along the way, and I still can’t believe I shaved two minutes off my time (8:30)!
I can’t wait to start classes. Who wants to wake me up to make the 5:45 a.m. class?! I know I can’t do it alone!
