CrossFit. Anyone heard of it?
Dash has been doing CrossFit workouts for quite some time and just recently saw that they have classes at a new gym on post for soldiers, spouses and kids. Perfect, since I’ve been wanting to start regular workouts again (at a gym that has a kids area that I can leave the kiddos in for an hour while I workout). Except that my workouts are usually a nice long run or some light weights- challenging yet also somehow relaxing.
So yesterday Asher and I started our new CrossFit classes. CrossFit Kids was perfect for him! He is so excited to “eckersize”. He insisted on wearing his robot socks.
I did the CrossFit Foundations class, which really just covered the basics of CrossFit movements, workout goals and ethics. So like, lots of listening, squatting with no weights to learn movements and then a quick interval workout that is called a Tabata (ours was doing squats). Aside from learning the movements (which did have me breaking a mild sweat), the four minute Tabata had me praying (seriously) that I could walk out of the gym and to my car without my legs giving out.
I am in worlds of muscle soreness pain today, shuffling around like some sort of cripple who can’t bend her knees.
This new adventure should be fun.
