Happy 4th to all my US friends, it was a great day here in Canada for this girl!

I went to my noon Crossfit class and was happy to see that our skill today was deadlifts – my most favorite lift!

The skill today was 3-3-3-3-3 working up to a heavy weight. I started my first set of 3’s at 135 and progressed to 225 for my last set.

Once I finished my skill I still had a few minutes so I figured lets smash that old PR! 230lbs was my old PR for the deadlift so I threw 15 more lbs on and

I got in trouble from coach for not lifting heavy enough on my front squats – I only did 75lbs oopsies! I was sore from all the squat cleans and wall balls so I wanted to work on form – sacrificing weight!

I worked for the rest of the day then came home and suited up in my most patriotic bathing suit to celebrate!
