If you’ve been following my fitness blogging, you’ll recall one of my goals is to be able to do 20 pull-ups.
I tested this morning at Elemental Gym, and did 19. I’m excited. To be honest, I’m ecstatic! However, what this means, and I’m sure my coach/trainer, Steve Bechtel, will agree, is that I’ve got more work to do. Not quite there yet.
I’m also preparing for a 25k skate ski race in West Yellowstone coming up on March 6, and am registered for the Tahoe 50k Trail Run in July, so I have plenty of reasons to keep up the fitness, in addition to getting that 20th pull-up!
The photo with this post was taken by Mei Ratz, of Lander, during one of my recent training sessions. Mei is a phenomenal photographer and I encourage you to check out her site!
Elemental Gym has a fantastic gym, some terrific programs and classes that will help you achieve better fitness. And, I might add, some great personal trainers: Steve Bechtel, Ellen Bechtel, Jagoe Reid, Sophie Mosemann and Lee Brown.
