I thought I would post an update on how everything is going on my CrossFit addiction. Last time I updated you I had just started and was already pretty much addicted and I would like to happily report that two months later…..I’m still addicted! I love it! I actually look forward to the next workout and what is to come. The fact that each day is different is freakin awesome. I walk in to my 5am class and look up at the board and that’s when I find out what my workout will be for that day. No “routine” workout here. And each workout pushes you to your own limits. Things you think you can’t do…you can! You would be surprised what you are capable of doing. All it takes is a little push. That’s when your coach/trainer comes into play. My 5am coach Crystal is awesome! She is always helping you along in the workouts and pushing you to try more. And did I mention she is pregnant! Yes, she as cute as can be at 8 months pregnant with her first little munchkin. She amazes me! She is still CrossFitting at 8 months too and looks great. If I ever have another one I surely hope I can look like her (and hopefully still be CrossFitting)!
Now so far in my CrossFit journey, I have met some of the benchmark CrossFit workouts, Angie and Nicole. Actually this week I met Nicole and she was a pretty tough workout since pull-ups are still something I have yet to master completely. For those who aren’t familiar with Nicole, it’s 20 minute AMRAP (as many as you can in the time allotted) of pull-ups and a 400m run. I had a little assistant with my pull-ups but hopefully the next time we try Nicole I’ll be a little further along and mastering pull-ups. Again, I’m having a great time and loving CrossFit! Now the 4:30am alarm clock wake ups are a little hard but it’s worth when 6am rolls around and I know I just got a great workout in!
The picture above is from my Thursday morning workout. It’s always more fun to have a post with an image. The workout consisted of “stations” of different workouts and you totaled up each “rep” you completed at each session. I finished the morning with 3, 4, 5, 5….those Air Dyne’s aren’t fun and adjusting the bike took a little more time away. Oh well!
Hopefully I can update you a little more on my WOD’s (Workouts of the Day).
