CrossFit Accomplishments through October 2009

CrossFit New EnglandIn seven weeks:

  • I went from being winded after running 200m and having to slow to a walk in a 400m to running an entire 1600m without walking!
  • I am significantly more flexible, as evidenced by the “V-sit” stretch we do at the beginning of each workout.
  • I can do a 1-abmat handstand pushup (if I want more than 1 rep, I use 2 abmats).
  • Double-unders (jumping rope and having rope pass under your feet twice for each jump) have gone from 0 reps to 10-15 reps consistently.
  • I get antsy if I don’t work out at least 4 times a week OTHER than playing hockey and soccer.
  • I have dropped close to 8 pounds.
  • I feel healthier.
  • I look better.
  • I sleep better.
  • I talk about CrossFit waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than I used to and hockey a lot less. Although I still talk about hockey a lot.

On tap for this month:

  • Drop some time off that 1600m (currently 9:02).
  • Do a pullup.
  • Double-unders up to 15-20 reps consistently.
  • Wean myself off of doing pushups on my knees all the time.
  • Rx a WOD.
  • Lose a little more weight.
  • Continue working out at least 4 times a week.
  • Look better
  • Feel better.
  • Sleep better. Because goodness knows, the way this month looks, I’m going to need it.

I cannot say enough good about Crossfit. I listen to my body, but I push my body. I never knew what I had in me (I FREAKING RAN A MILE) and can’t wait to see what I can do next.
