Today’s WOD

28 Sep

So I hooked up with this group of Crossfiter’s and they are intense. I see them in the gym, they are dripping in sweat, they don’t play games….and they are busting it out. And they are way out of my league. I do love working out with them because they are very encouraging. They were kind enough to invite me to join them a couple of weeks back, so I’ve finally took them up on their offer. And today was my second official Crossfit WOD and it was killer.

Today’s workout:

Three rounds for time of:
100 meter Walking lunge
Handstand walk 20 meters
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood

Now I had to do some modifications for the walking handstands, I attempted to do it but failed miserably. And that’s okay, I can work my way up to it. Someday I will complete it. So instead I did 10 wall climbs for 2 rounds and the last round I did 20 push ups. My time was 31:45. There were moments I felt physically ill, there were moments I wanted to throw my hands up and say I’m done. Seriously I looked at Jessie during our second round of wall climbs and said this is a moment I feel like quitting. She looked at me and said we got this. She was right! The best feeling was when we finished. My adrenaline was kicking. I felt good. I achieved the goal I set before myself.

So the point of this post coincides with my first post. A lot of the time; getting healthy, eating better, working out, trying something you’ve never done before seems a bit overwhelming. But you’ve gotta remember you are so much stronger than you realize. You’ve gotta dig deep, the strength is in there. No one but you can make you do it. Encouragement is fabulous, I love it when my friends are cheering me on but ultimately you are the one that will have to make it happen. You have to decide…. do you want it enough.  Are you determined enough… are you committed… and follow through. It’s okay to have hiccups along the way, we’re human it’s gonna happen. But learn from it…. pick yourself back up. And push yourself harder.

Antoinne and Jason 2nd round, handstands. Killing it!

Tomorrow is our rest day and Sunday we’re all meeting for the 3 bars of death. We’re gonna die.

    Good job today Salina!!!!! 100% true regarding digging deep. When My friend Jason and I did our first WOD(Workout Of the Day) one of the exercises called for 40 pull-ups, 70 push-ups and 40 sit ups for 3 rounds for time. He said man I have tried in the past and only have been able to due 4 pull ups…120 pull ups later(15 minutes) he surprised himself. You get to a point in life where that voice in your head says stop you can’t you need to tell that voice “Don’t worry I got this!” And get it done! Believe you me you will surprise yourself on how strong God made all of us!!! Get ready for Sunday Salina! Bahahhahah!! 😀
