It's 2015

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!
