Remember last night, when I said that CrossFit had left me the sweatiest I’d ever been?
Well, let me take that back.
TONIGHT was the most intense workout I have done
in a while ever.
It was the first time I ever truely dripped with sweat.
Like in my eyes and down my back!
It. Was. AWESOME!
CrossFit WOD: Kelly
5 Rounds for Time (cut-off 35 minutes)
- 30 box jumps (I did 20 inches)
- 30 wall ball shots (8lbs)
- 150 meter row
- 50 quick feet on aerobic step
Early finishers: AMRAP
- 10 back extensions
- 10 toes to bar (modification was knees to elbow, I needed a modification for the modification. Basically I can hang on the bar)
- 10 Jump rope singles
I finished the workout in 28:48 and was the last one to finish. Being dead last wasn’t as scary as I envisioned it.
I was happy because I tried my hardest today to get in every single rep.
I was worried the first little bit at Crossfit that I would awlays be the slowest (and right now I am) but John, the instructor said tonight that I am “methodical” (or something like that). And he is right 🙂 Those of you who have workout with me know that I am slow and steady! I can do it all but it may take a while. I am all about form (which still isn’t always perfect), and I mean, it isn’t like I am taking a nap between reps or anything! Long story short, his compliment made me feel better because I am still intimidated by all those super in shape people!
I will be one of them someday!
Now I need to focus on resting my body. Three days of Crossfit in a row does a body good, but I have 10 miles to run in 4 days and I am achy all over.
Tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday will be rest days. Well deserved rest days.
