Today I plan to tackle Crossfit TWICE.. and I’m very much looking forward to doing it again! My knees are a little sore right now from our morning workout, as is my left arch (from the resistance running) so I’m curious to see how I’ll feel the 2nd time around. I may opt to do the competitor WOD instead of the same one again, so yeah.. at least there will be options.
Today, my friend (and former trainer/coach) Erin M came with me!! It was so awesome to have her there! It was like I could relax and work at my own level, the best I could, and the person who was with me understood all that. We had a partner WOD today and we worked together, which made it so cool. She knows my strengths and weaknesses and yeah.. I MISS THAT. One of the things with starting all over at a new place is having those people learn all your strengths and weaknesses, abilities, etc. They have no idea who I am, what I’m capable of, and that sort of thing just comes with time, I know. But starting from scratch really sucks sometimes.
Our WOD today was supposed to be:
(between 2 people, and you had to alternate, you couldn’t do things at the same time)
50 goblet squats (25lb weights) We did 100 total, 50 each, with 25 lb weights.
50m resistance run (each person does it twice, for a total of 4 runs)
50 burpees. I did 5 at a time, Erin did 10, up to 75 total.
50m resistance run (x2 again)
50 box jumps – we did 75 total, I tried to aim for 10 at a time
50m resistance run (x2)
We finished in 23:59
THEN… Erin did 100 wall balls combined with another girl there, Amy. Erin definitely got her ass kicked today! I’d love for her to join Total Control but we’ll see. It’s ultimately up to her, of course.
