You may be a little confused,
but it's really me...
I've been running everyday/ every other day.
I just realized what a busy summer/fall running schedule I have.
The third weekend of August will be spent road tripping up to Providence, RI for a half-mary with my cousins and mother-in-law. Which is bitter sweet that SHE can't come, but I'm still really really excited to see new sites!!
Fourth weekend of August is the Happiest 5k on the Planet
Tonight I went to CROSSFIT for the first time.
I've been scared and intimidated yet surprisingly intrigued ever since I heard about CrossFit.
It's an empty warehouse/garage 'gym' with sledgehammers, tractor trailer tires, heavy medal music and ropes hanging from the ceiling. I wasn't sure what to expect.
Everything I've heard from it sounded tough,
rope climbs, 100 burpees, straight pull-ups, hand stand push-ups, box jumps- etc.
what?? where is the girly elliptical? or give me some colorful rubber 10lb dumbbells, i'll bicep curl those all day. No tanning beds? No protein shake bars? No babysitting?
The WOD was
Mobility: Shoulders WOD: 5 to 7 Rounds of… 3 Weighted Pull-Ups, 45/15lbs 5 Strict Pull-ups 7 Kipping Pull-ups Rest 90 seconds Cash-Out: 5 Rounds for time of… 20 yard shuttle run rest 15 seconds
Our trainer was super welcoming, and she made sure we had help with everything we did.
I felt really comfortable talking to her, and expressing my concerns
(about my fear of/ hate of Pull Ups, not the diapers)
Anyway, I went ahead and bought a monthly membership,
I CAN NOT wait until the next WOD. (workout of the day)
I can tell I'm going to be mega sore tomorrow,
but that's the best!
Every single exercise has 'modifications' so today when it was Pull Up time we were allowed to use bands to help assist. I mean, I still struggled, but I was able to do it!
The PRINCESS packed her bag and hung out at her bff's house....
Okay, my arms are heavy already.
Going to stretch.
Have a good night!!!
Thanks GM for the inspiration,
Thanks Gail for the company,
Thanks Nicole for the peace of mind <3
