HissyFit…CrossFit

Last night I rode with a group to a nearby town to try CrossFit for the first time.  My husband and son have been doing for a couple of weeks now and bought me three trial visits.  Unable to do one pull-up, I arrived at the warehouse type building full of apprehension.  All types of people, (young/old, male/female, big/small) were running around the outside of the building with a weighted medicine ball.  Some were carrying theirs on their shoulder, some in front of their belly, while others on a hip.  We walked in and the music was pumping.  I was so excited.  There was nothing fancy about it.  The owner/instructor, Michael, did an excellent job with his instruction.  I had no clue what a “burpee” was…Excuse me.  😉  Squats, squats, and more squats with proper form, shoulder presses, 200m run with a medicine ball, etc…  It was different than running but sooooo awesome!

I woke up this morning and parts of my body that I had forgotten about were screaming for attention.  I am going back tonight so I am hoping that I will be able to walk at the Warrior Dash this weekend.  

Any CrossFit experts out there?  I don’t know a lot about it, but the little I have read makes sense.
