This was the first Saturday morning CrossFit class that I’ve done in a while, so I was excited. So who gets excited about a WOD? Me!
Sometimes the WOD is posted on the LivingWell’s CrossFit website, but I wanted to be surprised today, so I didn’t take a peak.
CrossFitters had the option of WOD A or B. WOD B included muscle ups… I’m not ready for those, so I knew the alternative was for me.
Around 800 meters of rowing, my hamstrings started to burn to the tune of P’Diddy, singing…. “Hello Good morning… ” Music is great motivation during a workout. A funky beat makes me wanna dance so I keep it moving.
Thanks to my friend and trainer, my kettle bell swings (26 lbs.) are getting better. Yesterday, I did a better job of controlling the KB. When I brought the KB down between my legs, I remembered to keep it steady and prevent it from swinging and rocking back and forth. As a result, my arms were on fire!
Oh wait, something else noteworthy– In the warm ups, I did the three rounds of five pull ups with a skinny blue band…. non stop!! At one point, I had to double-check because I was surprised that it was “me” doing them. Training for this competition is undoubtedly making me stronger. How exciting!
Somehow I misread the count on the number of burpees… a fellow crossFitter walks up to me, “I think you’re doing too many! What number are you on?” Umm… 46.. “We were only supposed to do 30.”
LOL!! Darn! No wonder everyone else was finished! It’s all good though, At least I know I can kick 30 out with no problem. I’m just happy that I could take CrossFit today.
Today is rest day and… the Superbowl of course. I’ve read in other blogs about cheat days. But it’s kind of weird, but I haven’t had the urge to cheat since the New Year. Hot wings, chili, chips, etc… will be a good test today. I am ready though, because I will have healthy alternatives with me.
Regardless, I’ll enjoy today’s game and hope that you do too. It doesn’t matter who wins, I just hope that it’s a good game (no blow out), and that the commercials and halftime are entertaining. There’s nothing better than laughing at the crazy Superbowl commercials.
Have a great day and enjoy the game!
