2014 was an odd year for a lot of reasons.
Among them, I stopped going to CrossFit Metropolis. I had decided to focus on Olympic Weightlifting, and CrossFit just didn't make sense for me anymore. Over the summer, I joined up with Celeritas Weightlifting. I train there on the weekends, and during the week I train at Equinox.
I love lifting. I love training with Celeritas. I even love Equinox (they let me drop weight - and cold plunge + sauna = happy Gym Belle).
But the CrossFitter in me misses the absolutely destroyed feeling that you can only get from a brutal WOD. And so, as sad as I am to see one of my original Metropolis buddies move out to Chicago - his impending departure was the perfect excuse for me to drop in at Metropolis today.
I lucked out in that it was more of a lifting day (5x5 front squat), but the burner at the end (hill sprints and assorted pull-ups) was enough to leave me gasping and humbled. Holy cardio, Batman. When pull-ups get so hard?
Spending some time with the 6am crew at the House of Love was a great way to kick of 2015. I can't wait to see what else the year brings!
PS - Best of luck, Jared and Jenny!
