Today, I had an athlete look at me mid-workout and say, “By the end of August, I’m going to have these wall-climbs down!”
What about you? Have you set a summer goal? Do it. Small or large…set it, and make it concrete. Then, begin working towards it. Perhaps practicing in your warm-up or after your workout. Or, perhaps sacrificing a day of normal “WODing” to practice this skill.
At the end of the day, the aforementioned quote is absolutely true; the discipline and intrinsic rewards that you gain along the way are far greater than the attainment of the goal itself.
Let’s see what Shoreline CrossFit’s athletes accomplished during the month of June:
Gettin’ Our “Swole” On: Lifting PRs
Mike Peck had a 20lb. PR on his power clean at 245, Gayle Wirtz also PR’d on her hang power clean at 125, Allyson Shields power cleaned 105 for the first time, and Bradley Roth set a 25lbs PR on his power clean at 325. Overhead squat PR’s this month included Gayle Wirtz (100), Amy Woznyk (105), Mark DeCapua (135), Colleen Delaney set a 15lb PR, Melissa Roy (95), and Eric Nevarez (235). More clean PR’s this month included Eric Nevarez (225), Mark DeCapua with a 20lb squat clean PR at 205, Ashley Martone hang power cleaned 130, Luis Suarez hang power cleaned 200 and power cleaned 205, and Meg Testa hang power cleaned 195×5. Jean Perkins PR’d on her deadlift at 125, and so did Norma Farhina at 120. John Boughton also set a deadlift PR at 245lbs, Luis Suarez front squatted 205 for a new PR, and Mary Pont had a bench press PR of 100lbs.
Anniversaries and Gymnastics PR’s
Janice Rodriguez handstand walked 90 feet at Regionals and Bianca Fiondella did ALL her muscle ups. Amy Woznyk did pistols in a WOD, LP did parallette handstand push ups, and Colby Morawski did legless rope climbs. We have a lot of “OG” 4 year anniversaries this month including Christina Quong (& 4 years since her last sandwich), Jenna Lennon, Tricia Anderson, the entire Sandler Family, Nate & Jen Jacobson, Meghan Elgee, Bruce Calderone, Bill Roy, Rich Sudock, and Jackie Dunn. Kate Prado had her 1 year anniversary at SCF this month. Cheryl Fields did her 1st performance workout.
Who’s got Endurance? These Athletes Do!
Danielle Smith ran a mile for the first time, and Melissa Roy ran both the Limerock and Fairfield half marathon! Jean Perkins also rowed 25,000m in the first week of June and totaled 117,000m or 72.7 miles for the month of June!
Sorry for the lack of photos lately. We lost the gym camera 🙁
