Crying at crossfit...

Posted May 17 2013 2:49pm
Yup, its true.  I cried today at my very first real crossfit class.  How's that for tough, eh?

After finishing our on ramp introduction earlier this week Krista and I planned to go to our first real crossfit session this morning.  I'm not going to lie, I was feeling pretty nervous about it.  I found the introduction sessions to be really hard and was worried I'd just be too wimpy and totally out of place in a real class.

I was definitely kinda wimpy but I didn't feel out of place at all.

The group of people that come for the 9:30 class have been there a few times during our introduction so I'd chatted with a few of them before.  A super nice bunch of women and it made that nervous newbie feeling go away a little bit to see familiar faces.  We chatted a bit while we warmed up on the bikes and then it was time.

We all gathered down on the floor and our instructor ran through the warm up for us.  It looked something like this
  • 200m row
  • Dynamic stretching
  • 2 mins of double under (skipping) practice
  • Mobility stretches
  • 400m run
When we got back from the little run we gathered again and he went through the actual workout of the day...
My very first official WOD
I had checked it online earlier this morning so I kinda knew what we'd be in for (yay, no squats!)  It was great to have the instructor go through it all and give us some tips and pointers and ways to modify if necessary.  Although they had some weights specified for the kettle bells and wall balls, I knew I'd be going just a bit lighter.
"I finished!! (forgot to look at time)
And then this even geekier pic of Krista and I in the parking lot.  These are our "we survived" faces and I'm not sure which picture is worse.  Nice, eh?



In other news we're heading up to the cabin for the long weekend and I have my very last long runs before Run for Water planned.  Yikes!  It's just about a week away!  Can you believe it?  I was pretty proud to see this article about the Run for Water ultra in our Vancouver Sun newspaper the other day, check it out!

Oh and don't forget to enter my giveaway for 1 of 4 Color Me Rad race entries for anywhere on the tour!

Have you ever cried at crossfit?  Or maybe at some other workout?
