Time for another Fitness Friday!
Hubby and I kicked off the weekend with our very first Crossfit class. We were both a little nervous but it ended up being a perfect first class. Since the place we’re going just started offering Crossfit, the classes are still pretty small…so our first class ended up just being the two of us, and one other newbie. We started off with a warm-up and then worked on some skills like squats, wall balls and kettle bell swings to make sure our form was good. Here’s the WOD we did:
10 minute AMRAP:
10 wall balls
8 hand release pushups
6 kettle bell swings
4 ring rows
I did 5 rounds + 17 reps in the next round.
So I completed the whole circuit 5 times and then did 10 wall balls and 7 pushups of round 6 before the 10 minutes was up
It was awesome. I knew going into it that I was going to like Crossfit.
And I do 🙂 So does hubby!
We were both quite sore for the rest of the weekend!
Sunday I headed back to the yoga studio for the first of my 4 beginner classes!
It went well! We reviewed some of the stuff we talked about at the class last week and then learned some new poses!
On Monday I headed to the basement for a workout. I broke up my favorite 100 legs workout into rounds since I didn’t feel like doing the whole thing straight through.
Tuesday I made up a little Hurricane workout for those of you still stranded inside due to bad weather and power outages. No equipment and minimal space needed!
For another bad weather workout,

Wednesday we headed back to Crossfit for a Halloween workout before the trick or treaters came.
This time it was us plus 4 other people. We started off working on handstands. Let’s just say I am NOT good at them 🙂 I’ve done handstands before, but never up against a wall. For me, the wall seems to be my roadblock because you basically have to just hurl yourself at it and even though your feet are the only part that hit it, I seem to have a mental block about hurting myself….but I’m working on it! I’m pretty close so I’ll get there eventually…then i’ll work on handstand pushups! Hubby on the other hand is quite good at hand stands as it turns out! After that, we did our WOD:
I did this in 8:47 with a 25# plate and it was ROUGH, but awesome 🙂
This weekend we’re going back for a 9am WOD
and then they’re offering a 10am skills class
so we get to practice certain skills and work on our form! Should be fun.
Thursday I took a rest day. I went back to the doctor because my ears are still bothering me. Turns out both of them are still infected. It’s been over a month, and i’ve been through two rounds of antibiotics…to no avail. So…working on that…probably going to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist soon.
How have your workouts been this week?
