Yesterday one of my CrossFit pals, Sven was nice enough to spend a few hours with me at the box to help me with some of the things I am struggling with. We invited along Lori and Kim to work on kipping pull ups, power cleans and muscle ups.

Even though it was a skills session, it felt like a workout. I am sure sore this morning.

And I did make some progress — but not enough to make me say Oh I got the Kipping Pull up! Hooray! I just really need to practice the swing. I have all the mechanics but I just can’t seem to make them click together. It’s very very frustrating to me. I literally yelled at the end and to top it hands are ripped up. It’s all part of the learning process — and I’m not complaining but there are a few things that I seem to be struggling with that has more to putting the pieces together than strength or being ABLE to do it. It will come — patience is a skill too apparently.
