'Cause I wanna be a cowboy, baby

Thursday, June 20, 2013

I am just so thrilled Kid Rock is on iTunes now.

I... had... an... AWESOME night tonight. It might have been the most fun CrossFit I have been to yet! The class was soooooooo small! There were only 6 of us total and it was all people I know pretty well so far! My regular coach wasn't there though, and his wife Katie was the coach instead. Very fun!!!!

The workout was:

AMRAP in 20 minutes of:

Run 200m or row 250m (alternating between running and rowing for each round)
25 hand-release pushups

This was an awesome, sweaty time. The only thing is I did do the pushups on my knees. I started off with regular, but Katie advised me maybe I'd want to modify them because yeah, they were taking forever. Once I got down on my knees I busted them out pretty well.

The modified version was perfect- killer but doable. I would rather rawk a modified workout than struggle too much and feel discouraged by being too proud to modify it.

I did 7 full rounds. Not bad at all! I LOVED this workout.

Afterwards this guy Jason was like "HEY GUYS! Let's do Tabata situps!" He barely finished that sentence before "Chrissy, catch!" and an abmat came flying at me. So the 6 of us did Tabata situps, a nice little bonus workout!

Ah, it was just awesome. Totally made up for the crapness of Tuesday! I am just having the best time ever. I've been in Maryland for 3 years and at CrossFit for 3 months and it's already the only thing that's made Maryland feel a bit homelike to me.

I had a nice productive day at work today too. I'm sick of wasting time surfing the internet and I made a TON of vocab flashcards for my biology GRE. And I don't even care if anyone sees. It's not worse than clicking around online for 6 hours, is it? I actually can't wait for 4th of July week. NO ONE is going to be there, man, I'm gonna spend 8 hours each day with biology. I laughed when I re-read that last sentence. I work in a... biology lab. LOL

I started another entry over at Reverse Transcript Place, but it's really just for fun. I gotta get an entry up about lipids, definitely going to happen this weekend. I'm also hoping to buy a desk this weekend. I have no place to work at home. I'm so motivated right now. I've got to get back to school. I love this stuff so much, I can't not keep studying it.

    Great workout, that is pretty cool. I am still at a beginning stage, so hearing someone doing so well is pretty dang neat. Glad that school is so fun for you.
