Yeah, I may be proud of having an article written about me in a national magazine but I gotta tell you what I achieved today - with this amazing crew of people - made me even prouder!
700 snatches, people. I did 700!!
For those of you that imagine a snatch to be something quite other, a snatch in this context [insert guffaw now] means swinging an 8kg kettle bell [if you're real strong, 18 or 24 kg] through your legs, then lifting it up and over your head 700 times. 15 secs snatching, 15 secs rest. It is MEAN! Mean like GOOD!
I have many many blisters and calluses on my hands but I'm kinda proud of them. #warwounds .
Plus my blisters are nothing compared to some!
When it got real hard towards the end, because of the blisters, I thought of my dear Mum and all the pain she is in right now and I thought, jeez wayne, get over it! This is a mere trifle of pain!
[And that right there is a horrible phrase... a trifle of pain... but what the hell, I'm in a very good mood and it pleases me to write dodgy words. A hard pleasurable physical workout will do that to ya!]
ANYWAYS, thank you so much to Lesley Eru and Ray from Iron Alley and to EVERYONE who toughed it out and went hard today.
I,2,3 IRON ALLEY
And now, people, I am ON HOLIDAY!
See you the other side of XMS.
Have a good one.
