I hope everyone who celebrates enjoyed their Christmas! Richard and I spent the holiday with your family near Tampa and had a wonderful time. My favorite part was opening gifts with the kids Christmas morning. Last year we were in Asheville so I missed being home.
As sweet as the holiday season is, I’m feeling extra soft all over. I’ve skipped workouts to shop for Christmas presents and I’ve eaten far too many holiday treats. I’ve been getting by by squeezing in a little sweat time whenever possible- maybe a 3 mile run instead of an 8 mile run or some heavy deadlifts on my porch when I couldn’t make it to CrossFit.
Christmas morning we were recovering from gift opening and a huge pancake breakfast and everyone started getting ready for a big early dinner (because only on holidays do we eat dinner at 2:30pm).
I needed to sweat and my little brother Harrison accepted my challenge to join so we snuck out of the house for a quick, fun workout. Mom insisted we had to be back in 10 minutes and couldn’t possibly make it back in time so we accepted the challenge.
Here’s our speedy Christmas WOD. Richard coached
Christmas #getafterit WOD
400m sprint to park
20 air squats
20 second squat hold
20 push ups
20 sit ups
20 second plank
600m sprint around park
10 air squats
10 second squat hold
10 push ups
10 sit ups
10 second plank
400m sprint home
It is so fun sweating with my family! Harrison recently did his first duathlon and I am secretly sure that he’ll one day do an Ironman
I was excited to wear my new CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top in festive, classic red. I love Reebok CrossFit tops and this tank with a built-in bra didn’t disappoint. The long length is flattering and it didn’t ride up when I jumped for burpees. The built-in bra was comfy and easy and offered enough support for a WOD and shorter runs but I wouldn’t wear it for a long run. Bonus- it’s really soft
How did you get after it over Christmas?
