Snatch Queen

For those of you who aren't indoctrinated into the wonderful world of kettlebells, the snatch is an integral kettlebell move during which you basically fling the bell up above your head and then back down again. Don't try this at home, without supervision anyway.

So last night at kettlebells class I was doing my thing, snatching away, and the instructor said "If you have any problems, just look how Heather is doing it - perfect."

So there you have it. I am the queen. Of snatch. They really should figure out a better name for some of these damn exercises.

In other news, I registered for Twin Cities today. So yep, I'm going for three marathons in 2011 - Fargo, Grandma's and Twin Cities. At my monthly visit to the chiropractor today I told her of my grand plans for the spring, summer, and fall. Her response: Do you have some sort of mental problem? Excellent question.

I think you need a shirt that reads Snatch Queen.

Now *I* want a shirt that says that.

Also, awesome job. Kettlebell form is hard and awesome.

Disappointed you didn't pick the GB as one of your marathons.....after this weekend, it will be greatest 25 mile warm-up to the best victory lap inside the home of Superbowl 45 champs!!!
Okay, now lets talk snatches!! I'll let you be queen over by you in MN, but when it comes to WI......Snatch Queen is all mine! THE best kb move there is.......IMO!

LOL! I was totally in the gutter before you said you were the Queen of Snatch. And you are awesome for signing up for 3 marathons! GOOOO HEATHER!

Awesome, I'll see you at Fargo! I dated a girl in high school who was the Princess of Cooter, but that was something different.

Christine said...

Congrats Queen of Snatch! LOL I'm impressed you will run 3 marathons this year, good for you!!

I think your Chiro needs to call you your majesty rather than suggest mental instability.
I may see you in Twin Cities!

Richelle said...

So THAT'S what that move is called! Sweet!

You've picked some great marathons to do this year. Make that marathon prep time your bitch and rock those three races!

Yeh for the Twin Cities. And congrats about the kettle bell move!:)

I think you just stumbled upon some kind of unique running tee: Snatch Queen! That, or it should totally be the name of your rock band -- or, perhaps your porn name if the whole "lawyer thing" doesn't pan out ;)

Rose said...

According to the internet, turkeys can run SUPER fast.

House mice only run 8mph, though. Maybe you could outrun a mouse?

the dawn said...

you are such a rock star. i think i need some kind of demonstration in picture form so that i can know how the snatch queen rocks it out.

LOL! Snatch, you're right, they need a new name!
So excited for 2011 for you! I know it will be epic!
Hope all is well with the new gig and the fam! Have a wonderful week, my friend ;)
