Ahhhhh…it is GREAT to be alive, isn’t it? I woke up to the smell of turkey bacon, while sweetly being awoken by a gorgeous man, the sun was FINALLY shining, and…I WAS SORE!!! Ah how I missed you, my sore, tired, worked body.
I noticed an immediate difference in myself last night after I did Crossfit. I was bubbly, energetic (bordering on hyper), and suuuuuper happy!! I craved a salad the second I stepped out of those doors. Last nights workout was definitely TOUGH! A LOVELY welcome back for me!
15 rounds of 30 seconds of thrusters (the prescribed weight for the workout was 45# and you can BET you BUM I did just THAT!), and 30 seconds off of rest. When Danny made me do 45#, which I am now grateful for, I didn’t think I would be able to do it… I looked up at the whiteboard where all the prescribed totals were (total up the amount of thrusters you did for the whole 15 rounds, and you only get your total up there if you do it prescribed; as opposed to modifying the weight down), and the lowest on there was 105 by a guy in one of the earlier classes. I was thinking, there is NO WAY I’m even going to come CLOSE to 100 if I’m doing 45#. Thrusters are TOUGH! You’re dropping down into a squat with 45# racked up, and then shooting up and pressing that 45# of your head…you’re moving your body from the lowest point it can go, to the highest…TOUGH! So I mumbled and grumbled a little bit about doing prescribed…but I am SOOOO glad that I did. I didn’t end up with a score nearly as high as everyone else, but I did 103 thrusters in those 15 rounds, and I’m happy with that! FOR NOW!
THEN! Oh no, it wouldn’t be Crossfit-like if we ended at that!! We did DOUBLE DUTY of tabata situps…that means: we did 16 rounds of the situps instead of 8. I am FEELING that TODAY! A lot of people tend to feel the pain 24 hours from the time they work out. I really BEGIN to feel the pain 24 hours out from when I worked out, and then feel the WRATH 48 hours out. SOOOO not looking forward to how I’m going to feel tonight and tomorrow. I DO want to up my workouts to a constant 4 times a week at crossfit (with the weekend), and maybe something lighter on another 2 nights a week. After seeing one of my fellow female crossfitters 6-pack the other night, haha, I decided it was time to step it up a couple notches.
Glad to be back on the horse; glad to be back to feeling myself; glad to be back in the sunshine; and just glad to be back in the swing of life! WOOOO HOOOO!!! Have a rockin’ Tuesday!
