Happy Monday evening! I had no intention of writing a post today. Work was crazy busy. And stressful. But after one of the best Crossfit classes I’ve been to yet occurred I knew I had to participate in Katie’s Marvelous in My Monday post! First, my weekend..
I did nothing. And it was marvelous.
Well, Friday night I went to my very first Crossfit class. No training wheels. Legit class. Well, I went with a classmate so we could hold each other’s hand. I enjoyed it so much I went Saturday morning, too. I know, crazy right?
The rest of the weekend I attempted to force myself to relax and do nothing. Usually I am running errands, doing chores, visitng my mom, with friends, or with M. This weekend I just wanted time to relax. To ensure maximum relaxation I did my grocery shopping after Crossfit Friday night. Oh yeah, best Friday night ever.
As relaxation time commenced Saturday after Crossfit I was all set. Freshly showered and pjs on, I parked my butt on the couch ready to veg for hours. Marvelous. Then this happened.
Not one hour goes by and I was bored. I flipped through every channel a zillion times hoping something I didn’t see before looked good enough to stare at for another hour.
Nothing. What’s a girl to do? Laundry. Chyeah, I am such a wild thing.
Ok, this post is boring…back to the MARVELOUSNESS!!
Today’s second to last Crossfit class we went over all the essential movements: sumo deadlift high pull, squats, push press, split jerks, etc. I feel like I am really getting the movements down and it felt great to have the coaches not correct my form; instead, I got quite a few ‘good, nice work!’ It was great. Then came the workout.
Fight Gone Bad.
I was a little scared when I saw our coach write that on the board. I heard of it being tough, but went in with my renewed confidence. Until the box jumps came out. And I was determined to conquer those suckers.
Fight Gone Bad: (scaled for us newbs to only 2 rounds):
1 minute each of the following with 1 minute rest. Repeat circuit once and collapse.
- Push press
- Box jumps
- Sumo deadlift highpulls
- Wall balls
I finished it all with barely taking a breather. But the most marvelous part of this workout?
I KICKED BOXJUMP BUTT! Not only did I barely stop for a break during the 2 minutes, but I completed them without stepping down…AND ON A 20″ BOX!!
20″ boxjumps without error= Marvelous in my Monday.
Have a great night!
Rock on lovers. How was your Monday Marvelous?
PS–Oh yeah, and marvelous is my bf M officially asking me to move in with him. Pretty marvelous indeed 🙂
