Ok, so I really don't know if I did THAT well....but I felt like I did! Today is day 2 of the Paleo challenge (I promise I'll stop talking about it daily and keep my updates to weekly for the most part!)
We did a Benchmark WOD (part of the challenge is to see how you improve in CrossFit as well as weightloss, overall health).
"Randy" 75 reps of 55# Snatches- Women's Rx (Mens Rx was 75)
I completed this in 7:56, and then collapsed on the floor with a heaving chest, gasping for air, unable to move my legs or close my hands (mind you, my finger still looks like a purple grape on the end of a stick)
Then we were told to do 2 rounds of run 200m 15 squats.
"Um, excuse me, if I squat, I won't be able to get back up." BUT I did it and whined a bit.
Tonight, I'm supposed to go back to CrossFit for competitors class (an hour of really hard stuff)
but it's raining, there are 60mph winds expected, and I don't have a car right now (yes, I'm accident prone and break things...this is why I don't have nice things! ok that's a total lie, I'm spoiled). Anyway, my bf texted me to tell me I'm not allowed to walk or ride my bike in this weather to CrossFit.
|this is how I feel about that.|
Though, I am still sore. There is a chicken waiting to be roasted in the fridge... AND I really don't want to walk in the rain for 3ish miles. I might actually listen to the guy for once (he is a nurse, but I'm stubborn)
My strict paleo-ing is going well, I know I feel good waking up after a good food day, so I can't wait to see how I feel after 63 days of this.
Probably a lot like this :)
We'll see what I end up doing tonight :P
Do you have a hard time taking a break from the gym?
Do you alter you life/make crazy sacrifices for a workout?
Is that safe?
Keep working hard everyone! You rock! Loving the feedback from #sweatpink and #girlsgonesporty <3
