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