Holy soreness! I tried my first CrossFit workout at Blue Ridge CrossFit last night. Several of my friends have been doing CrossFit for years but for some reason I avoided it. I stuck with my cozy yoga and triathlon training.
At 5:30 p.m. I was in a big, open CrossFit gym picking out bars and learning new workouts with the Asheville lululemon ladies.
We did three sets of a run, 50 Ab Mat sit-ups and 50 pushups… topped off with 20 squats with a bar and weights with a push at the top. Please excuse my CrossFit newbie language
Overall it was a really fun, really encouraging and intense workout. I loved the loud encouragement from the instructor to push me farther than I’d go on my own. Have you tried CrossFit?
My whole body is sore today but feels pretty good- as long as you don’t ask me to use my arms too much
I took advantage of some free time today and headed to the Blue Ridge Parkway to log some solid miles on my bike. This was the first good, long ride since I moved to Asheville. It was hilly and awesome!
The Good: I hit 38 mph going downhill on the bike! The Bad: I lost the remote to my car (the keys were locked in the car) and it took 1.5 hours of waiting for Richard, looking all over for the remote and finally prying open my door and using my antenna to unlock the door. Good glory it was an adventure.
What new workout do you want to try?
