So I missed a whole week of CrossFit while I was in NOLA but it sure didn't feel like it with all the work I did in the heat down there! Monday I did a make up session with my trainer, Shaun, to go over all the skills I'd missed the week prior. I thought I'd be good the next day since we didn't actually do a work out...I was WRONG. Sore as usual on Tuesday! Tuesdays work out was good, 3 rounds of 250m row and 10 thrusters, and I finished with a total time of 5:25. I was hoping to stay under 6:00 (2 minutes per round) and I did, so I was super pumped. Before I left for NOLA, I convinced a friend to start going with me! It makes all the difference having someone to keep you motivated and vice versa.
We didn't take measurements/weigh-in before so it's not as easy to track progress as I would like, but I feel better and stronger, so I guess that's all that matters!
Oh, and I also caved and finally bought my 1st pair of Vibram's. They felt great Tuesday and I'm excited to give them another try tonight! My friends in Missouri have been telling me for at least 6 months now how great they are and my old gym shoes finally bit the dust, so I figured I'd give these a go. Anyone else have them? Love them/hate them?
UPDATE: CrossFit today SUCKED! Ran in the Vibram's for the 1st time, that's going to take some getting used to! Plus, it was hotter than ever and I somehow managed to strain my lower back doing SDHP (Sumo Deadlift High Pull). So me and this bag of ice are calling it a night, hoping to not be in pain when I wake up! (PS, I know I make an awful sad face...I don't know how some girls look so cute making a sad face, it doesn't work for me ha ha!)
