Yeah, let's not even go there. I felt awful, again :(

So I've finally (kinda) settled in. Classes start tomorrow. I'm liking the new gym -- 4 platforms with bumpers. No women's bar, but that's ok for now since I'm not doing actual lifts.
The ski coach, Tom, who has kinda been my liason since March, is AWESOME. He's so nice and has helped me get right into the lifting there. He's even going to sign me up as a varsity skier so I can have access to all the special varsity things, specifically the training room so I can have trainers work on my wrist. AND I'll get to workout with the ski team, so I don't have to train by myself. AWESOME!

It's been cool training so far; I've already had a couple guys tell me I'm badass (and girls too) which is funny because I wasn't even squatting that much, or as much as I normally do.

Let's just hope my squats go back up :-/

That's awesome to read! Glad you found lifting platforms so soon and are back into your routine. There's nothing wrong with focusing on strength for a few weeks.

That's because you are bad-ass. Just accept it!

haha thanks guys! Yeah the gym was a real surprise, I'm super happy with the place and how it's all working out. I just hope my wrists get better soon so I can start the real lifts again.
