Got to visit Aspen CrossFit while we were out in Snowmass, and it was awesome! I had a few different boxes to choose from, and decided on Aspen CF from a recommendation from a friend who used to live out there. Very warm and friendly group, the owner, Erik, was super helpful and great with getting back to me on drop ins and visiting. I LOVE that I can go just about anywhere and drop in at a CF box and just, fit right in. It’s a great feeling. 🙂
Anyway! Holy altitude! I knew I’d have a hard time at some point with the elevation, and here it was. The only other time I had any issues (outside of CF) was going up the crazy flights of stairs to the village where Starbucks was at.. first world problems.
Anyway, the WOD!
Burpees to 45lb plate
UGHHHHHH. Really? I knew there’d be burpees. Here they were. Here it was. Yes I did them. They were great, and awful. So awful that, I skipped one of the rounds, (I think 15) just because I didn’t want to die. I admit it. I’m sure I finished in something like, 2 hours. Not really, it was more like 20+ minutes, but it was awful. 🙂 And great. I’m so glad I went!
