   this was my Saturday workout

Currently on the go is the 2013 Crossfit Games, and each region sends the top athletes to the world games in California. As a beginner, I am NO WAY ready for this, but after my class, I stayed and took some pics during the 3rd round.

This round consisted of Ball-Walls

image

From a squat position

image

To throwing a weighted ball above a line

image

image

After 150 wall-balls

image

The athletes were required to do 90 double unders.

image

Followed by 30 Muscles ups

image

All this was to be completed in 12 minutes

image

All in all, its a great way to get fit!!

Erin has been taking swiming lessons for almost a year. Being paramedics, having resussed countless children, we wanted her completely water safe. What we weren’t expecting, was Erin taking to water like a fish.

So, her swimming school had a gala competing against other swimming schools.

image

She was SOOOO nervous, but, spotting me across the pool, she calmed down, and went into photo mode!

image

She dived into the water with her kicker board, and off she went. WOW, seriously proud parent moment. Erin pulled ahead of all the others, with a beautiful swimmers kick.

image

Her natural competitors edge making sure no-one was catching her…

image

33 1/3 metres in 43.1 seconds!  over 6 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor

image

Well done big girl, we are so proud of you
