Crossfit Fundamentals + 1st 5m Run

I finally finished my Crossfit fundamentals courses.  So for the first class three weeks ago we did this WOD:

400m run

15-12-9

  • Squats
  • Push-up
  • Ring up (I’m not even sure what it’s called, its like a push up but on the rings)

I finished it in 9:02 three weeks ago.  We did it again at the last class on Thursday and this time I finished in 6:49.  I’m excited I improved my time.  Now that I’m done with Fundamentals, I’m a little nervous jumping into a class.  I’m still learning all the moves so worried I might not know everything and fall a little behind to everyone else in the class.  I’m such a chicken shit.  I emailed my coach so he could suggest which ones I should start with.

I took a break from Crossfit this weekend to run. I’ve been nagging myself to run 5 miles nonstop which I have yet to do, but haven’t had much time to work out aside from Crossfit.  Now with work AND school – there don’t seem to be enough hours in the day.

So, I finally hit 5 miles non-stop – big milestone for me.  I wasn’t sure if I was even going to be able to run 3 miles since I didn’t run in about 3 weeks but I actually did.  I ran 5.03m in 52:05.  I definitely needed that.  I have trouble running in the morning because I don’t eat or drink (I know I should), so I find myself getting very dehydrated after 5K.  At 4m, I ran past my house and had my father bring me a water so I could finish up my last mile.

I feel much more prepared for my Tough Mudder obstacle course race (which is less than a month away — eek!).  I’m in much better shape than when I initially signed up for this bad boy over six months ago!

Now back to Crossfit…

  1. Awesome job improving your time, that’s a huge improvement! Don’t feel anxious about joining class, if your gym is anything like mine they will be happy to see a new face and help you through anything you have trouble with. Also, the Tough Mudder is AWESOME! Make sure you get out and do that! 😀

    • I am! I’m scheduled to run the Tough Mudder on October 20th and I’m psyched! A little nervous but happy I’ve been working out more to train for it! Thank you for the advice!
