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.
This is not me…yet.
