We are connected again...........

Sorry for the break in coverage but Comcast only finally hooked us up today.

View from the front door in Santa Cruz

Love the set up at Catalyst. Matt and Greg back squat.

On Monday we drove back from our weekend in Santa Cruz via Sunnyvale the home of Catalyst Athletics. Greg and Aimee let us invade their gym and lift some heavy shit. We had to get back on the road early so missed the chance to hit a metcon with Dutch and Jolie but we did get to join them in the snatch and back squat.

Dutch and Jolie snatch. Jade (Aimee's daughter) dog sits.

Once we got back to Sacramento we stopped by CrossFit East Sac to catch up with Justin, Travis and Chris. They made us welcome and we will be stopping by there on a regular basis. In fact we worked out there today.
"Snatching Badger"
Complete three rounds for time of:
30 Hang Power Snatch 75/45
30 Pull-ups
Run 800 meters

Donna completed this is 27:38.

I did not as I started to rip my hands up, so I put on some weight gloves which did not combine well with the pull up bar and resulted in me doing a very ungraceful dismount from 7+ feet in the air and landing on my butt. I am sure the bruise will be nice!

Matt, I did the same thing at RED but landed flat on my back. Hurt like hell for two weeks. Good luck with the back end! Ha!
