park wod

Yesterday was absolutely beautiful here in my neck of the woods. Celeste and I walked to the park and found some people to play with. While she frolicked and made new friends I busted out a quick wod! 21 – 15 – 9 is popular configuration in Crossfit. Meaning you do 21 reps, then 15 reps, […]

birthday training

I have literally handwritten almost all of her workouts in a little blue notebook that I keep […]
