I went to my first CrossFit class today! I had a really good time and am so excited that I can do it the whole time I’m in Alabama!
The instructor scaled the WOD (workout of the day for you who don’t know the CrossFit lingo yet) since I was new, but I still feel like I could have done more! It went something like this:
WOD March 6, 2013:
400 meter run
15 pull-ups (I used a resistance band to help me, but these were still ridiculously hard!)
30 thrusters (Basically these are squats plus shoulder presses. I used 5lb dumbbells for this exercise.)
Knees to Elbows (I just did regular old sit ups for this one. And I think I was only supposed to do 15, but I went ahead and did 25.)
30 single unders (Just jump roping. This is really hard for me considering the fact that I haven’t done it in like 20 years or something! Now that I think about it, I was never really good at jump roping. I was much better at sitting “on the hill” and running my mouth!)
400 meter run
I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to go back again in the morning!
I went and gave myself a little cancer in the tanning bed after that. I KNOW. I KNOW. Tanning beds are the devil and I have no business being in one, BUT I’m not feeling the whole looking like a ghost on my wedding day, so this was the next best thing. I considered a spray tan, but have you ever had one? They freaking STINK. Like I want to vomit b/c I smell so bad after them. Not for me! Plus I can’t risk getting it all over my ridiculously overpriced dress that I’m going to spend SIX hours of my life in. Enough of that.
After tanning, I came home and got clean. Then the parents and I hit up Robert’s for lunch. I hit a snag here. First of all, the ONLY thing I’ve ever eaten from Robert’s was chicken fingers and chive fries. Not my best choice when I need to fit into a dress in two weeks. So then I was going to get the chef salad. The waitress started talking about ham and I lost it. I don’t even know what kind of ham comes in the chef salad at Robert’s, but all I could think about was the nasty little diced ham! Then I remembered the salad from yesterday in Mobile and thought, There’s no way in hell this salad could ever measure up to that. So, I changed my mind to the tuna salad. I went to the salad bar, too. It was a good choice, it was delicious and it filled me up!
We did some things for the wedding and then I ran to the local hell hole, aka Wal-Mart, to stock up on groceries. I meant to be a good little blogger and take a pic of my stash, but once again, I completely forgot. Ooooopss. I’m trying to get better, I swear!
Anyway, it’s been a pretty busy and productive day. I’m thinking about hitting up the park in a little bit for a short run or either a walk. Holla!
