• Crazy for CrossFit {Weekly Workouts}

    July 20, 2014

    I eased back into CrossFit with, uh, 5 workouts last week. HA! That’s more than I went before I got pregnant! I just couldn’t stay away! But, seriously, I took it easy and didn’t push myself too hard. I was never super sore, so I just kept going to classes and before I knew it, I had racked up 5 visits. Man, it’s awesome to be back. It’s even better than I remember!

    Holy! You’re a machine! I took a bit to get back into exercising, but like you said, it felt so awesome to start it up again. It was surprising to me how I just picked up where I left off (except for running, I was pretty slow at first!) You look awesome btw!

    Awesome WODS! I’m marathon training so I’ve been keeping my CrossFit days to 3 (maybe 4) depending on how I’m feeling. Well last week my box had our own in-house competition which they called “The Reindeer Games – Christmas in July” and I was HOOKED and went everyday! It definitely brought out my competitive side which I’m not used to… ;)

    I think of all us fitness junkies have a hard time “easing” into things. Same problem I had after my injury. When you say, you finished the in 17 minutes the WOD, is that it for the workout then?

    Yep, that’s the Workout of the Day (WOD). All classes are an hour though.

    How do you spend the rest of the class?

    Tina July 20, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    It depends on the class. They’re all a little different. Check out this post: http://carrotsncake.com/2012/02/crossfit-q-a.html

    You are seriously SO FIT for just having had a child. I love how how passionate you are about exercising for the sake of improving your health and fitness level and not just for superficial reasons. Your love of fitness is so inspiring!

    I’m doing CrossFit this summer during my internship because I (finally!) live near enough to a box to make it feasible for me. I had been intrigued by it for years, but your blog inspired me to go for it and I’ve loved it so far. So much fun! Thank you for being the push I needed to get out there and try CrossFit, and I’m so glad you’re already able to get back at it!
