Run with Fran

Run Fran Run! Good Morning! Up and at it, I slept very well last night which is something I have to brag about because some nights I don’t sleep well at all.

As some of you know, I restarted Crossfit as part of my exercise routine. I had a hard time choosing which WOD I wanted to do today, but then I remembered why I loved Crossfit so much. It’s all about modification, and giving yourself a total body condition. Also, something new I even learned about Crossfit: yes, Crossfit is timed to push yourself, but remember to listen to your body and always, always FINISH the wod. Never give up. It doesn’t matter what time you get, it matters that you finished your workout. This is only a competition with yourself and about comparing your time from before.

I found this workout on Pinterest – and I thought, hey I remember Fran- she’s alright. Until I started doing those Thrusters…oh Fran..NOW I remember you very clearly.

Those Thrusters…can wake you up REAL quick. I modified my workout since this is about my 4th time working out from a month break.

21-15-9

400m Run

Dumbell Thrusters 15 lbs (30 lbs total)

Modified Pull up (Olympic Rings)

Total time: 21:22

Surprised me, I figured I would have taken a longer time than that, I took a lot of breaks and was very careful about moving around my garage. We are moving, and there are boxes everywhere – seriously- it’s a gym member’s nightmare to workout in that, but I’m doing what I have to do. I felt more energized as well- with it only being my 4th day heavily exercising- I’m surprised my body is adapting like it use to, remembering its movement.

AM Seflie for ya

Did you workout today? Any crossfit WODs anyone wants to try out with me?

 

Crossfit

Will and I got interested in Crossfit years ago- since then we have always appreciated the technique and the athletes. Recently, the Crossfit games 2017 aired on ESPN and I got inspired again to start crossfit.

I just got back from vacation- it was great to see the family, but I was ready to be back home and start my workouts and eating healthy again. That’s what vacation is for- a vacation from life and everything.

Congrats on the male and female crossfit winners of 2017

We are moving, so this means boxes are being piled up everywhere and I can’t lie- part of me wanted to say “Start your workouts fresh in your new home” but I couldn’t do that to myself. I’ve been eating junk all week being on vacation, well deserved but it’s time to get back into focus. I made room in that now tiny garage and no regrets.

WOD

Time: 32:00 Min

I wasn’t sure if I was going to time myself. Wasn’t sure if I needed that on the back of my neck, but I wanted to make sure I was getting the benefits of Crossfit. I went ahead and timed myself, and I mentally made sure that I completed each exercise thoroughly for my own benefit and safely. It’s very easy to get carried away with Crossfit and injure yourself.

It felt good to run again, and it felt good to push my muscles that way again.
