Finally feeling better, hurray! I did make it to crossfit yesterday and it was great to get back in the game.
Warm up: run 400 meters then do a partner burpee ladder. Example: I do one burpee, partner does one burpee, I do two burpees, partner does two burpees etc etc until we both get to 7 burpees.
Skill set: kettle bell snatches, ab rollers, jump squats
We went over and over the proper techniques and then did 5 rounds of 5 snatches on each arm, 10 ab rollers and 5 jump squats.
WOD: This was a EMOTM (every minute on the minute) for 12 minutes:
3 kettle bell snatches on each arm and 7 up/downs (similar to a burpee)
I AM SO SORE TODAY!!!!!!!
So we finally found out the details of our paleo challenge and I'm super bummed. Usually it sounds like if you want to participate you pay $50. After 6 weeks the 3 people with the most impressive results get the cash prize. I believe Meagan said last time the winner won a few hundred dollars. Unfortunately this time they changed the rules. It's $15, no cash prize, and the $ goes towards a bbq meal that all participants will get after they complete the challenge.
I don't want any freaking food, I want to win $$$$$$!!!!! I'm sorry but winning $ to me is a hugely motivating. Eating a bbq meal is not. I know I know I'm acting like a spoiled child who isn't getting things her way. Still.......I'm quite frustrated. I'm embarrassed to admit I actually felt like crying after I read the new rules. *sigh*
Other rules include:
doing a minimum of 3 WODS a week
a food log
We can partner up to support each other. I don't really have any friends there, so I guess I'm on my own.
I'm sure that if I can stick to 6 weeks of Paleo and 6 weeks of crossfit 3 times a week plus running.....that I'll see some decent progress in my health and fitness goals. I could've really used that prize money.
Oh well. Such is life. Time to "build a bridge and get over it". (as my husband likes to say) ha!
