ME- A local celebrity!

Yup, that’s me – famous!

Ok all jokes aside, I was approached by http://www.qnetnews.ca/ to do an interview with them on my Crossfit experience. I am by far not the most experienced person, but I love it and I can only say positive things about my journey.
My goal of this interview was to let everyone know that this sport is for everyone, to try, at least once! I admit it is very intimidating but you can do it! The atmosphere her at my Box is amazing. Every trainer is there to assist, motivate and encourage you – even if you suck at it.. Which I do! I am learning and you will NEVER see me quit or not finish a WOD. I’m in this for the long haul . This will be my cross training for my next half marathon training. I love it too much!

So I encourage you all to give it a try… Just once… You will get Addicted!

Crossfit – Week 2

Week 2 and my fourth WOD… Can you say LOVE IT!!!

I am feeling the beginnings of an addiction and I will make time for this workout every week. I love the intensity, the fast paced WOD’s and the trainers are amazing at my box – Crossfit Belleville. They motivate each and every one of us, there are always high fives and shouts to never quit! I love it. I am usually that voice in my head telling myself to never give up, but now I have a real live person telling me! That rocks..

Here is tonight’s WOD , it was a good one

Not too shabby for a tore up 42 year old runner I’d say! I like to think I have this going on

So now that I have my Aminolast recovery drink in, veggies in my belly … I need to sleep and dream of my next WOD destruction!

Crossfit, I think I like you!

I started Crossfit Wednesday evening and absolutely loved it. I loved it so much that I signed up for a monthly membership 2x per week. This meant I had 2 classes left for this week, so, I went again tonight. I was pretty stiff in the shoulders from Wednesday’s cleans. Tonight, I got my ass handed to me! It was an insane WOD, look

The walls balls were with 20lb medicine balls, the Burpees sucked, knees to chest was ok, skipping not too bad and the ball slams were decent . I hated overhead lunges with 15lbs because my coordination was messed. I finished 2 complete rounds and was onto 13 ball slams before I timed out at 30 min.

I was a sweaty beast!! It was dripping everywhere.

Our skill tonight was handstand walks. Thank god we only had to practice the actual handstand against the wall.

I think I love this class so much because I’m back there tomorrow at 10 am to get punished again… And this guy has no problem doing it to me.. My trainer Bowman

Now I will go ice my body, drink my aminos and take some pain killers!

Happy WOD’ing peeps!
