Christmas Dinner and Boxing Day at C3 (CrossFit Cape Cod)

After working out last night we came back to Donna's parents place and cooked Christmas dinner.

Donna cooked the ham and mashed sweet potatoes while I sorted out the roasted vegetables - potatoes, turnips, parsnips, carrots, onions, garlic, brussels sprouts, shiitake and portobello mushrooms, thyme and parsley.

Mmmmmmmm Good roast vegetables

This morning we headed back to C3 for another workout. Mark had invited Jonny Kalaher from CrossFit ATM in Texas to come in to coach us in Oly lifting. It was great to have some experienced eyes look over our snatches. I think I will be changing my start position based on the experience this morning.

Jonny also helped us with cues and common faults. It was great to meet him and two of his brothers, Evan and Matthew. This is going to be a CrossFit family to reckon with.

Then as Donna and I completed part of our PM workout (doing heavy single over head squats), Mark and the boys cranked out a nice strength based workout.

3 Rounds for Time
10 Clean and Jerk 135#
15 Strict Pull Ups
20 Wallball situps (situps throwing a medicine ball against the wall with each rep)

Over Head Squats
Matt 155#
Donna 90#
These are both new Personal Records for both of us.
Thanks again to Mark for the great hospitality and Jonny for the coaching. It is a great CrossFit community wherever we go :-)
