The Farewell Post

I have been writing and re-writing the introduction to this post for the past half hour.  There just isn’t an easy way to say goodbye to the Ronin crew.  I went back yesterday for my final metcon and for a chance to say good bye and good luck to those who were there.  Thank you Ronin — all the coaches and fellow members — for welcoming me into the family.  My only regret is that I didn’t manage a strict or kipping pull up while I was with you guys, but know that I did get over my fear of being inverted and managed to kick up to a handstand back in the old HQ.  Because of that, Ronin will always hold a special place in my heart…well okay, there are more reasons, but that’s one them 🙂

Strength:  1RM Front Squat (stuck with L1 30kgs to save energy for Cindy — I needed it!)

Met Con:  “Cindy”
20 minute AMRAP
5 pull-ups (blue band)
10 push-ups
15 sit ups

Although I didn’t manage to PR this Cindy,  my 13 rounds + 5 pull ups + 10 push ups is just 10 squats shy of my previous Cindy but this time, I had blue bands instead of green and I didn’t revert to box push ups even when I was close to giving up on those push ups.  In my head, I was still  ringing that PR bell!
