I survived another week of CrossFit. This week is the first week that I don't have a job, and will add 3 days of running back into my routine. The big race (Sawtooth Relay) is in 15 days! Yesterday I did a 6.8 mile loop, but only ran about ½ of it. I will do the same thing again tomorrow, and see how it compares. I used "Map my Run", and WOW is that thing cool! It runs off of GPS, so how much more accurate could it be? It keeps track of exactly where I am and how fast I am going at all times. It even displays elevation! The only problem is I had to run with my phone, which was annoying. But so far I am thinking totally worth it. I ran my first mile in under 11 minutes. What? Yeah, seriously a PR for me.
CrossFit is amazing and fun and I just love love love it. You should seriously try it. I just finished week six.
Now here are some pictures. Very embarrassing and not pretty, but the point is to see the transformation. Keep in mind, I had been counting calories and running (a little) since March, so I had a head start, but I just LOVE the way my body is shaping up. Its amazing. The results are HUGE, especially considering the time I put in…which is only 3 hours a week right now. (Plus the time I spend prepping meals and shopping for real food, but hey…you have to do that anyway) :)
I don't know why I always look so angry….
Everyone loves the rear view…don't laugh. Have you ever taken a direct from the rear shot of yourself? You should try it. It is very eye-opening.
Stay tuned! Maybe tomorrow I will be crying, you never know. Oh, and speaking of crying, yes I do that sometimes during workouts. Today I cried when Kevin was helping me roll out my calves. Yep…very embarrassing! But whatever.
