We saw some pretty impressive snatch numbers yesterday. We have a few women on the verge of getting over 100lb, and Jenny snatched 125lb. We also have a few guys edging in on 200lbs. Most of you have only been going at this for 6 months or less. Other folks are coming from a different gym where you may not have been getting the continued coaching to progress the way you could have. Either way, you’re all seeing amazing improvement. The snatch is a pretty complex lift and it takes time to develop the skill needed for those big numbers. You should all be proud of where you’re at. I like how Axle put it, “all we need is just a little patience”
Patience: the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation,annoyance, misfortune,
or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.
Patient: bearing provocation, annoyance, misfortune, delay,hardship, pain, etc., with fortitude and
calm and without complaint, anger, or the like.
Patience (or forbearing) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. Antonyms include hastiness and impetuousness.
Almost forgot, thank you to every one of you who has been with ACF from the very beginning. Today marks what I’m calling Auburn CrossFit’s 6 month anniversary! And thanks to those of you who have since joined and have worked your way in to this amazing community of people. I couldn’t be happier with the progress I see in Auburn CrossFit and in our athletes!
