Skill: Light snatch technique work – 10 minutes
WOD 15 minutes @ moderate effort
This afternoon I got high in CrossFit! Well, at least that’s what I felt like during the WOD. The rush of doing a little cardio sent my adrenaline into high gear!
Working on my snatch technique was much-needed. Snatches aren’t something I do in my figure training, so I was glad to get some practice reps in. I appreciate the way our trainer broke the technique down into move by move-it helped.
As soon as I positioned my feet and grabbed the handles to row, my heart raced like I was competing in the Olympics or something. The thing is, I wasn’t looking forward to competing with anyone, I was just looking forward to the euphoric state, the endorphin rush, and the wonderful feeling I get from an intense cardio workout. It’s my addiction.
The WOD wasn’t overly challenging, but enough for me to breakout into a nasty sweat. Twenty seconds into my last plank and in the most sinister way, the coach placed a 25 pound weight on my back and another member’s back.
“Don’t move! Hold it! Only 40 seconds to go.”
Putting myself in a meditative state of mind, I deeply inhaled… slowly exhaled, concentrated on my body and held on! By the way, I LOVED every second of it and I’m glad he did it. Awesome!
Sweet dreams! 🙂
