I am almost done with my Crossfit challenge for the month of July. I have to say that this has been a very crazy adventure but in nine classes I have learned so much.
I got to the box this morning not really feeling it. I have been getting up really early for two weeks in a row and I just want to wake up to daylight outside. I also did not want to run at all but Nathan had other ideas for me. He made me do a 400 meter warm up run. I have to admit that when I was done I was ready for what was next.
Later Nathan showed m how to so you soldiers, butt kicks, and toe touches to warm up my hips. Then we moved on to squats. I already do squats during my normal workouts so I had this. Nathan was impressed and decided to teach me some Olympic lifts.
After several failed attempts getting my form right I got the hang of it and I really wanted to put some weight on it but I don’t think Nathan thought I was quite ready enough. Then it was time for my workout of the day.
3 rounds of the following:
400 meter run
15 push ups
I finished it in 8:15.
I did really good I think he made me do pushups cause he wanted me to develop some more upper body strength cause I really have none. I just started weightlifting so it’s going to take some time. Nathan said that all good things will come.
So I have one more week of ramp classes and then I have four days of regular workouts so it’s going to be a interesting end of the month.
