I'm So Flattered I Could Pee
Friday, May 10, 2013
Tonight at CrossFit the workout was:
AMRAP in 10 minutes:
7 hang cleans
9 sumo deadlift high pulls
One of the coaches, Katie, who is the wife of the other coach who is always there at 5:30, Andy, said to me, "You've done sumo deadlift high pulls, right?" I said yes. She said, "With a kettlebell or bar?" I said kettlebell. She said, "Oh, you can use a bar tonight. You'll be fine. Your form is always excellent."
I know I blushed and said something like, "Really?" or "Seriously?"
And then she just started going. "Yeah! Andy and I were just talking about the other night because your snatches looked awesome, and we were like, you know, Chrissy's really amazing, we tell her to do something and she just... does it! You're definitely one of the easiest new people we've ever trained. Your form is always spot on."
I seriously just about died. It might have been the most flattering thing anyone has ever said to me. And it's definitely not the first time, they mention my form almost every WOD. This is what I care about... I mean, compliments on my looks are great, love that, but this was AWESOME.
And, flying high from that, I proceeded to stumble through the WOD like a fat drunk bear. Figures.
