Janathon Day 2–Return to CrossFit

CrossFit

In an attempt to get stronger and lose some body fat, I joined a new gym that opened in October that specialised in CrossFit. CrossFit has been a fairly steep curve of pain and sweat, but I started making some real progress. 2 weeks off over Christmas though, and too many chocolates and mince pies have landed me back a few weeks – and hence tonights session was a rude awakening.

Each CrossFit session tends to follow the pattern of a warm-up and mobility, some work on a certain skill before the main WOD (Work Out of the Day), and then finally the warm-down – and the session is written on the Whiteboard each day. Todays looked like this:

I started off by doing the ‘Beginners half-WOD’ before the coach came over and said perhaps he should have given me the full-WOD to do – so I switched half-way through to do the 3k row and the full set of the remaining exercises. The sit-ups and burpees hurt big time.

Quite clearly the slowest to finish today, but the nice thing is everyone hangs around and supports until you finish – and other people in the gym also shout out encouragement – its a great community and something I’m enjoying doing – although its a step learning curve.

Late Christmas Present

A late Christmas Present turned up today – a ‘MyProtein’ Selection Box. I’m a bit worried what my wife is trying to tell me though:

And then finally tonight we had one of our favourite meals – Cajun Salmon, a Mango Salsa mix and sweet potatoes. The slight difference tonight was we received some spices from Chile for Christmas which made for some fairly spicy sweet potatoes tonight!

  1. Hi Serunner! I am aiming for 70.3 Vitoria (Basque Country in Spain) I live in Girona (an hour’s drive north from Barcelona). Will be my first! Eek! How about you? Good luck!
