I Survived Day 1 of Crossfit!!

Yes, I survived my first Crossfit session, and I really enjoyed it.  It may have something to do with the fact that the actual workout was only 6 1/2 minutes, but my legs are still a shaking!

I am really impressed with the class.  The 5-10 min was intros, then we had a short warm up.  We spent the next 35 or so minutes learning the correct technique for the 5 exercises we would be doing during our workout, the modifications for each exercise, and the philosophy behind why they do each exercise the way they do, and why you should do the modifications rather than gritting through it.  This really impressed me.  A lot of times you join workout classes, and you never really get taught exactly how to do everything you need to do, so people end up doing it they way it looks in their mind, which often ends in injury.  Once we were all capable at doing the exercises, we did our work out.

500m row
40 squats
30 situps
20 push ups
10 body rows

it took me 6 1/2 minutes. It may not seem like a lot, but it sure kicked my butt and I will be sore tomorrow for sure!!

I cannot wait until Wednesday.  This is exactly just what I needed!!

Happy Exercising!!
