Working out at 9:30 a.m. on a weekday morning was invigorating! Oh how I miss it! When the instructor asked for feedback about the WOD, I said that, “it was better than a cup of coffee.”
True, I’m getting stronger, but 115 pound thrusters for the women? Nope. I don’t think so! LOL!! I worked hard lifting at 75 pounds because I’m still perfecting my form. I like to remind myself that form is more important than trying to impress others with heavier weights. In due time, the heavier weights will come. With a competition six months away, this is not the time for an injury. My score: 20 (in 10 minutes).
The Turkish Get ups are difficult and require good focus. I left a puddle of sweat on the floor, but I did them well; consistently and methodically. Yay!! It’s hard to imagine that back in July, I could barely do one Turkish Get up. That is one of the amazing benefits of CrossFit. If you stick with it, you will see results.
No matter how hard, you push and push until you think you have nothing left. Then… push some more!
