I am blessed to have a CrossFit box only 15 minutes from my house. It takes time away from my family to go there after work but my husband and I agree that it is the best option at this point. And, let's face it, I really do love CrossFit more than I ever did personal training.
I went back for my first WOD in forever last night. After getting another text message from my ex-trainer I really needed the stress relief. I was hoping for slam balls but the workout my coach selected was almost as good. Five rounds of 400m run, 7 x deadlift, 15 wall balls (10 pounds), and 30 single unders (jump rope). I finished in 25:10 which I think is pretty good for my first time back!
Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to fit in my runs without going to the gym on my lunch breaks. I planned to get up an hour early today and do my 4 miles but when the alarm went off I was way too exhausted, probably from the WOD last night. So instead I have my clothes, shoes, and Garmin in my bag and I will stop in the park on the way home. Tomorrow I will have no choice but to get up at OMG-early and put in my 8 miles. But in the end, I just have to focus on what matters. A PR at Baltimore in October and hopefully a PR at Baker 50M. At the very least I need to get my second piece of the medal.
I am blessed to be surrounded by family, friends, and readers who really care. I value every bit of input you all have given me over the years whether I agreed with it or not. The honesty and straight-to-the-point advice is often just what this stubborn runner needs. So thank you all very much!
Have you tried CrossFit? Do you regularly WOD? What's your take on it, whether or not you actually attend a box?
