I don't know the gal on the end, me, Jake, Holly, Jorge and Trent!
With Teams of 4, and only 2 people working at a time, complete the following:
Jake and I teamed up with Chris and Chris, our team name was The Dough Boys and Girl. Are they calling me fat? Chris #1 was a Crossfitter and the rest of us were newbies. It was obvious from the get go that Chris was a hard core competitor...my kind of fella'! We started and I was SHOCKED at how well Jake did. After all, the dude doesn't workout at all. We busted out our pull-ups and were the first to start the push-ups...YES, we so totally rock ;)
Jake was a little dismayed when they announced that there would be NO knee push-ups. He did amazing, he rocked the push-ups. The sit-ups on the other hand were a bit of a struggle for him. Luckily for him I could do sit-ups all day, especially with him holding my feet, which I kept telling him not to do but he wouldn't listen...oh well! The squats were a breeze and I could have gone all day. I'm used to weighted squats so body weight squats were super easy.
We finished in 25 minutes and were the winners. It was a GREAT time! We had to leave right after the workout to get Kobe from gymnastics and apparently we missed out on dodge ball :( Dang it!
As soon as we got in the car Jake thought he was going to toss his cookies! Crossfit got him good. I was hoping to try "Fran" or "Betsy Sue" (I'm pretty sure I just made that one up) but I really loved every second of it! It was so fun being in a big group seeing everyone work their little butts off!
The 2 Chris' were awesome and so much fun to workout with. The coaches were super nice. Alan, made me give him a high 5 before the workout and I knew I was in for trouble. Many of you don't know this but I DO NOT give high 5's, well until Thursday night that is :) I'm a bit of a germaphobe and quite frankly I don't like to be touched. By the end of the workout I was having such a great time that when Chris and Chris came in for a high 5 I happily obliged! I am a changed woman...just kidding, don't touch me :)
Friday night I was DYING to go again! I begged Jake to go back but he was too sore...booo hooo!! I made him jump on my back to see if I could carry him, see the workout for last night was 50m partner carry and 20 med ball tosses repeated 4 times. I was a little shocked to see that I could carry Jake and wanted to go sooooo sooooo badly! DENIED!!!
This morning as Holly and I were finishing up our 14 mile run about the city I said, "Hey, we should run to Crossfit, do the workout and run home!" Denied again! We didn't want to show up in our "ninja" suits. I got home and pulled up the WOD and dang it we should have gone!
Teams of three will complete the following:
As athlete one runs 200m, the other two will be doing as many reps as possible of:
athlete 2: kettlebell swings
athlete 3: push-ups
when athlete one returns they'll take #3s spot.
I capiche and I LIKE it! Janae mentioned a Crossfit scholarship on her blog...BRILLIANT! I would like to apply. If I didn't already spend an exorbitant amount of money every month to send my kidlets to gymnastics I would be there in a second, you could even time me!
Maybe one day I will be able to come up with a way to make it work. I ab.so.lutely loved working out with Jake, that's my favorite kind of date!
Are you a Crossfitter?
I sure wish I was!
Is it snowing at your house?
Yes and I LOVE it!!
