Thanks everyone who lent me a little encouragement yesterday :) I did it!! And... I loved it! When I got to the box (gym), there were two other girls looking about as nervous as I felt, which was somehow a little comforting. The coaches were great! "why do you all look terrified?? We're going to have FUN!!" the one girl said as we were beginning our class. After spending the first 30 minutes talking about air squats and proper form and doing a whole bunch, we got to our Workout Of the Day (WOD). It was a team WOD of As Many Rounds As Possible (AMRAP) in 10 minutes.
Partner A performed:
- 10 box jumps
- run 3 lengths
- 5 burpees
- run 1 length
then tag partner B, who was holding plank the whole time partner A went through the circuit. My partner and I got through 9 rounds in the 10 minutes :) It sounds pretty easy, but it was pretty intense. The main focus was - KEEP MOVING! And the main thing I took away from it all, when I don't let my head get in the way with doubt, I CAN do the dreaded box jump! I was partner A, so in the 9 rounds I did a total of 50 box jumps. Without bailing even once. Boo-ya!! :p
Amazing how a great workout can leave you feeling inspired to eat super clean too. I generally am pretty good to begin with, but maybe it was more a case of inspiration to not be lazy. When I get home later in the evening after hockey, I often either skip dinner, or just look for something quick and easy like a protein shake. Last night I decided lazy was not an option and made an egg, some baked sweet potato and sauteed kale. mmmm... Almost took a pic, but I was hungry. My friends all make fun of me for taking pics of everything I eat anyway :p
